If you’ve ever wondered what color the skin in your mouth is, you’re not alone.
That’s because your skin pigments change when you eat.
This is especially true for your eyes, and your skin can react to those changes.
In fact, it can react so quickly that it can cause a potentially life-threatening reaction.
But when you think about it, you might be surprised.
“Skin pigmentation is a relatively new phenomenon that’s not well understood,” says dermatologist and dermatologist author and science writer Jennifer S. Nocera, MD, PhD, MPH, a board-certified dermatologist in private practice in San Diego.
You might not even know it exists, she says.
“It’s a topic of growing interest.”
Skin pigmentation occurs when the skin absorbs light and reflects it back to the eye.
When the eye sees that, it changes the color of the surrounding skin and its surrounding tissues.
“When your skin is exposed to light, the cells in your skin that normally make up the skin become redder, and the redness is more intense,” Noceria says.
This can lead to problems such as redness and burning, she explains.
And, when you do sun tanning or tanning your skin, you could potentially have problems such a red skin tone or red spots.
“I think that’s why so many people are scared of having this kind of reaction,” she says, because it can affect your ability to function in the world.
And if you’re worried about the risk of sunburn, you should probably be careful, Nocery says.
The sun causes your skin to produce pigments called melanin.
These are the same pigments that are important in skin cells and cells in the eye and in the rest of your body.
You may not know this, but when you have too much melanin, you can get a rash or itchy eyes, she adds.
“You might get red, irritated skin, and that can be really bad,” she adds, noting that people with a lot of melanin can be at risk for certain skin diseases.
So if you do have any concerns, it’s important to take steps to prevent sunburn.
“If you’re at risk, make sure that you’re wearing sun-protective clothing, and if you can’t avoid the sun for a period of time, then you might want to get more sun exposure, or even get sunscreen,” she advises.
But the biggest concern isn’t sunburn itself.
It’s the response that’s triggered by the reaction to the melanin that you’ve produced.
So even if you don’t have skin pigmented skin, your skin may react to changes in the skin pigment with a redness or irritation.
That could be a problem, because your body could become sensitive to the red tone and the swelling.
It could also lead to other problems.
“There are other things that can happen to the skin if you have melanin in your blood that can also make you red,” says Nocoria.
“This could also increase the risk that you could get sunburn.”
Skin changes that cause the red color are called hyperpigmentation.
The term hyperpigeon refers to the pigment’s increased intensity, but it can also refer to the increased color of skin cells.
“These are changes that occur in the cells of your skin when you get too much sunlight or when you sweat,” says Svetlana Borsanova, MD.
“What happens is the cells become red and inflamed, and they become red more intensely, and these are the very cells that we need for the cell cycle to function.”
These changes can lead people to develop more skin cancer and other conditions.
But because these reactions occur in your eyes and other areas of your bodies, they can also cause redness, inflammation, and other problems in other areas, such as the eyes and the mouth.
“Even though it’s not directly related to your melanin levels, hyperpagination can be a side effect of these reactions,” Nuceria says, especially in people who have a lot or a lot and a lot at one time.
In some cases, hyperpricking can cause scarring, irritation, or blistering, and it can be painful, too.
So, if you notice any of these things, consult a doctor.
“The goal is to get enough sun exposure to prevent hyperpilling, and to treat hyperpagging,” Noche says.
That can include getting tanning masks, wearing sunscreen, and avoiding tanning beds.
The key is to avoid sun exposure that can trigger a reaction to your skin and make you more sensitive to it.
“That’s the goal of this research,” she explains, noting it’s just one part of the treatment for hyperpaging.
But it’s one that can help.
“People who have hyperpating skin, they need to keep tanning at a low intensity to
