Your face says a lot of things about your health. Even if you eat properly, there can still be something wrong. You should always listen to your body, when it tries to tell you something. However your face may reveal your condition, if you know what to look for.
Here are some important clues to decode your current status of health:
Health says that puffy eyes indicate lack of sleep, but can also be related to diet. If you have enough sleep and there are still bags under your eyes, it may indicate that your diet is too high in sodium. Body and Soul also says that dark under eye circles and white spots are the result of food intolerance. Dairy and wheat are the common suspects so try eliminating them from your diet. Alcohol can also cause dark under eyes.
