Do you feel like Casper the friendly ghost (wasn’t that a great cartoon??)
One gal recently told me…. “I feel like my skin is getting paler as I age", and believe me, I can relate.
Our skin gets paler as we age because the process that creates the pigment that is responsible for its color slows down, that’s just the natural process of aging.
But there may be some underlying health issues that can cause paleness. Anemia, folate deficiency and hypothyroidism are just a few.
If you have symptoms of abnormal bleeding, exhaustion, dizziness or muscle weakness along with pale skin, you may have a more serious issue then just aging and you should schedule an appointment with your doctor.
