What Your Face Tells You about Your Health
Your face can reveal a lot about your lifestyle, from bad digestion to low iron levels, according to health and beauty experts.

Lines around the mouth: “A primary concern for many women is ageing lines around the mouth, which can be caused by smoking,” beauty and nutritional therapist Jennifer Young says. “The effects can be lessened by regularly applying lip balm.” And quitting smoking, of course.
Sores around the mouth: “Sores in the corner of the mouth may indicate a deficiency of B vitamins,” skin expert and facialist Nataliya Robinson says. “Try introducing more whole grains into your diet, along with green vegetables and meat – all are full of vitamin B. Alternatively, you could try taking a vitamin B supplement.”
