The Thyroid and Skin Connection
The thyroid is the master gland and it affects almost all of the organs of the body. Many cells in the body can respond to thyroid stimulation, this is the same case even for the skin.
Puffy face, dull dry skin, and breakout tissues (especially the hormonal type mostly during periods), pale skin, sagging eyes, hair that falls out most of the time is rigid or brittle and faded, falling out of outer third eyebrows are the major symptoms of under active thyroid exhibited in an individual.
At times wearing out both physically and mentally can be tormenting especially to women and one will notice them hiding the skin imperfections with makeup which has more harm than good on their bodies.

Are you sick?
Many women often don’t feel good because something is wrong but conventionally when they are tested for thyroid disease, the result comes out negative therefore they can be termed as hypochondriacs.
Most people are not aware of thyroid disease; they will therefore often run to average clinicians who will inform them that they have sluggish thyroid without mentioning that their immune is under attack by thyroid disease.
For Hashimoto and autoimmune disease thyroid is not sluggish.
A person’s thyroid overexerts its efforts but the body immune system always produces antibodies against this important body organ. Due to the domino effect, the thyroid strains and works harder to keep up with triggered symptoms. This, as a result causes one to become so tired. Regular screening tests can detect the onset of such conditions.
