It’s important to love the skin you’re in and to take care of it in any way you can. The human body’s biggest organ is it’s skin. Your skin serves numerous purposes, from holding everything together and protecting your insides as well.
Your skin is prone to things like sunburn and windburn, that can be prevented by going outside with the proper protection. But there are other issues your skin can have that are sometimes less easy to avoid.
Nearly everyone has at least one mole somewhere on their body, and for most of you they really mean nothing. They are simply skin cells all growing in one area, rather than spread out. For the most part, even a new mole is usually nothing to worry about.
However, if your mole has grown or changed colors, you may want to get it checked out. Moles that are strange shapes, multiple colors, or even larger than normal, aren’t always a call for concern, but it still helps to get them looked at by your doctor, just in case.
Skin tags are annoying patches of skin that are normally caused by friction. Many people get them on their backs, buttocks, and under their arms and armpit areas. Some people even get them around their eyes. They aren’t harmful at all.
Harmful or not, though, they can be annoying. You can have a doctor lance off a larger or more nuisance of a skin tag, or you can purchase nature oils that will remove them safely and gradually.
Hives look like little blisters, which is generally what they are. If you pop one a pussy liquid usually comes out. Hives are usually detected once they start to make you itch.
These are a sign of an allergic reaction. It could be to something you simply brushed against, maybe the neighbors cat or a material at the store, or from something you used directly on your skin. Maybe you are having an allergic reaction to your dish soap or a lotion. It can be easily dealt with by using a cortisone cream to stop the itch and block the histamines.
Everyone gets a bruise now and then, and some people bruise easier than others. If you are getting bruises and don’t know where they are coming from, it could be the sign of an illness or a vitamin deficiency. If you bruise often or have some that you can’t account for, visit your doctor for some blood tests to find out what may be causing them.
When you’re a teenager and you have acne, it usually has something to do with adolescence and your changing body. But don’t believe them when they tell you acne is just a kid thing. Adults get acne too.
For most adults, acne is a hormone based thing. Many women get pimples during menstruation cycles. If you have bad acne it pays to see a dermatologist to help you deal and avoid getting a bunch of scars.
