What Your Lips Say About Your Health You Didn't Know

The Lips tell a lot more  than just beauty, as that what they are mostly associated with, your lips may tell you if you are healthy or just in ill-health, although for ladies who wear lipstick all the time, this may be hard to tell, so watch for this signs, some of your might not kiss your spouses again... 

Swollen lips

This can be a strong indicator of poor health. But we won't just rush into any conclusions as swelling can be a sign of an allergic reaction, says Keith Arbeitman, DDS, of Arbeitman & Shein Dentistry in Manhattan and it might be caused by your new lipstick. Swollen lips are sometimes caused by Crohn's disease, which normally causes swelling in the bowel but can inflame the lymph ducts at any point in the body.

Pale lips

Got Pale lips? think anemia. Heart conditions and lung problems both affect the amount of oxygen being carried in the blood, and when this level drops significantly the lips take on a bluish tone, instead of a healthy deep pink. Pale pink lips are a common side-effect of anaemia.

Cracked lips

Cracks at the side of the mouth (angular cheilitis) are sometimes due to anaemia, which occurs when there is a shortage of iron in the body.

Drooling could be another reason for those painful cracks at the corners of your mouth, officially called "angular cheilitis".

Cracks can also be a sign of diabetes, because the high level of blood glucose which accompanies the disease encourages the growth of candida, a yeast-like infection which typically attacks the thin dermis at the corners of the mouth.

Burning lips

This can be a sign of depression. There is a huge amount of sensory equipment in the brain, which can become overly sensitive when there is a psychological imbalance.

Chapped lips

Persistently sore, chapped lips can indicate an allergy. This can swell the lips slightly, which causes the skin to crack and peel. The irritant could be anything from dentist's gloves to lipstick or peanuts. Pay attention to your cosmetics and consider an allergy test.

Also, It might not just be dry and cold air that's sucking moisture from your lips. There's a good chance your internal hydration has something to do with it as well, Arbeitman says. If you're spending too much time in the sun or just not drinking your daily fill of water, then you're probably dehydrated. And that dehydration shows up in your parched lips. Luckily you don't need to go to the doctor to fix this, just drink more water.
Bright red
Red lips can also be accompanied by bad breath and food cravings. These are signs that your liver and spleen are struggling. Eat cleansing bitter foods to cleanse your liver, such as dandelion tea, chrysanthemum tea, and bitter melon. Celery and honey are also beneficial.

Early nights and stress free activities will give your body the rest it needs to recover.

Scaly, crusted lips

Means you please stop licking your lips so much, The skin on the lips contains fewer sebaceous glands than the rest of the skin and so is prone to drying out faster than other areas.

When children or adults lick their lips excessively they dry out the few oils there are, leaving the tissue and area around the mouth dry and vulnerable to infections.

Try applying Vaseline to the area and give up the habit.

Yellow Lips
I kind of wonder how ladies who yellow lipstick is their favorite will find this one out. As bile builds up from Liver Disease, your skin can become jaundiced and you can get yellow lips.

If you have yellow lips, blue lips or pale lips, better see a doctor to have it checked out.
