We all know how poor blood circulation can affect the state of your health, but did you know that poor blood circulation can adversely affect the state of your skin as well?
Here is 6 skin problems which can be the result of poor blood circulation.
1. Unflattering skin tone
When someone is anemic and has a poor blood circulation, chances are, that person has a pallid complexion. In some cases, the skin tone is also dull and may even look ashy.
2. Skin discoloration
Poor blood circulation often results in a lack of oxygen in the blood and hence, this can also cause skin pigmentation, dark spots or blotchy complexion.
3. Acne and problematic skin
Obviously, a poor blood circulation is going to affect how some of your major organs function and over time, these organs can become stressed and are unable to eliminate toxins properly. This can put more pressure on your lymphatic system and your lymph nodes can become sluggish with toxins building up and then excreted through the skin, causing acne or other problematic conditions such as dry skin, itchy skin or even skin rashes.
4. Slower scar healing
Those with acne and have poor blood circulation may find that their acne wounds take a longer time to heal because there is less efficient transport of good nutrients into the skin cells.
5. Wrinkle formation
As mentioned, if your blood cannot circulation well, there is less efficient transport of good nutrients into the skin cells, and this can adversely affect collagen production – thereby causing wrinkle formation.
6. Dark eye circle
While not all dark eye circles are a result of poor blood circulation but because the skin in the area around our eyes is quite thin, poor circulation results in less oxygenated blood, manifesting in a bluish/purplish appearance under the eyes called dark eye circles.
Improve your blood circulation
1. Diet and health supplements
A balanced diet rich in vitamin B, C, D and E will be helpful. However, if you find that you are not getting sufficient sources from your food, try taking the Manna Blood Circulation Support supplement if that is a comfortable idea to you.
Exercise is a sure way to increase blood circulation. In fact, as soon as you start exercising, you’ll notice that your complexion might start looking rosier because of the increased blood circulation that shows up on the surface.
