Unusual signs anywhere over the body should ordinarily not be ignored and with the face especially; these signs should be noted as they are usually indicators of underlying health issues which can be very serious:

1. Extremely Dry Skin

Very dry skin should be paid attention to especially when they come with equally dry/flaky lips.

It’s possible to have dry skin but when it’s noticed as unusual then attention should be paid to it especially if not caused by weather, hot tub baths and other minor issues.

An excessive dry skin and lips may be as a result of dehydration which could be an indication to poor dietary habits, vitamins or an underlying health issue. Hydrate the skin by drinking water, loading up on vitamins and improve on diet and if it persists, see a physician.

Although some ladies especially can come off as hairy but excessive hair around the lips, jaw line and around chin may be an indicator to a health issue. Excessive hair over the body is usually as a result of a hormonal imbalance but it’s best to investigate by visiting a health practitioner.
