Is it just my skin?

My skin for some odd reason looks as if it's got a yellow tint. My husband even noticed it. :( I dont know what it is.

Has anyone else noticed their skin looking like this?

  • You should maybe go see a doctor...that could be a sign of issues with your liver. Has it always been that way...or just recently?

  • Hormones can definitely tint your skin. It can also be a symptom of something you will need to monitor so I would bring it up the next time you meet with your doctor. I got some yellow brownish color masking my face and I ended up having preeclampsia. Most likely it is normal and you are fine but it is worth asking about.

  • Let your doctor know about it. It may be something, and you never know until you ask.

  • You should go to your dr because you could have jaundice.

  • I actually have the same issue . My belly looks a bit yellow but I didn't think it was anything to worry about. Maybe I should take the advice of the other ladies as well.
