Potassium and Skin
Early signs of chronic potassium deficiency include acne and dry skin, according to Dr. Elson M. Haas, writing for the Periodic Paralysis International website. However, acne and dry skin have a wide range of other causes. You should consult your physician if you suspect that you have a low potassium level, which is usually corrected by increasing your intake of potassium-rich foods, such as bananas, avocados, salmon, lean beef, chard and white beans.
