When your body is sending you these signs, it means it’s lacking magnesium and potassium. Add tomatoes, oranges, bananas, and spinach to your regular diet to replenish these vital elements.
#7 Dry skin
A lack of vitamin C causes skin dryness. Eat more vegetables, oil, fish, and nuts.
#6 Sweet tooth
When you are craving something sweet, it usually means your body needs (or wants) glucose. You may be stressed out, depressed or exhausted. To avoid gaining weight, try eating some dark chocolate or honey.

#2 Rings around the irises
Rings around the irises of the eyes appear when people are over 50 years old and it’s normal. If such rings appear in a younger person, it signifies high cholesterol levels. Time to make an urgent doctor’s appointment.
