I have been getting breakouts lately and I was trying to figure out what was causing them. I have always found Chinese face mapping really helpful so here is how it works…you might find it helpful too. The skin is the largest organ of the body, when you get breakouts it is generally a sign of something going on internally. In Chinese face mapping it is believed that each part of the face represents a certain organ. Check out the diagram and see if it works for you….
Area 1 & 3 – These areas represent the bladder and the digestive system. So increase your water intake and stay hydrated. Also try to improve the diet.
Area 2 – The middle of the forehead, between the eyebrows is related to the liver. Try to cut out alcohol and reduce processed foods.
Area 4 & 10 – The ears are sensitive to the kidneys, drink plenty of water and cut down on alcohol and caffeine.
Area 5 & 9 – The cheeks represent the respiratory system, if you are a smoker or suffer from allergies then these may be indicated by broken capillaries and congestion in this area.
Area 6 & 8 – The eyes are an indication to how your kidneys are coping. This can sometimes be indicated by persistent dark circles. Flush out your kidneys by drinking lots of water.
Area 7 – The nose can represent the heart, ensure you maintain your regular GP check ups and have your blood pressure checked.
Area 11 & 13 – These areas indicate hormonal imbalance, while these are slightly harder to prevent as hormones fluctuate at certain times of the month, a balanced diet and a really good skin care regime will help keep them to a minimum.
Area 12 – The stomach is represented in this area, ensure there is enough fibre in your diet to help with digestion. Peppermint tea is also great for good digestion.
Area 14 – If your body is trying to fight off and infection or illness then you are likely to get a pimple or two in this area. Stock up on vitamin C, zinc and Echinacea to help your body fight.
Hopefully this will help you if you are having skin breakouts.xx
