CLUE #6: You have embarrassing skin problems

It’s easy to forget that your skin is a vital functioning organ. In fact, it is the largest organ in the body, with an average surface area of more than 2 square metres and accounting for around 15% of your body weight.

Your skin can say a lot about your health. Skin conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and allergic rashes are typically a symptom of something else going on in the body.

The skin is an ever changing organ of the human body and is made up of many structures and cells. The skin maintains the proper temperature; depicts the right sensation, and helps in the immune system to protect the body from diseases.
