What is your skin telling you?
FACE MAPPING ZONES
Your skin can tell you many things about what is happening throughout your body. Its amazing how interconnected everything is. There are different “zones” that are related to certain functions of your body. When a certain part of your body is not functioning properly you will often times see the results as a breakout in that specific zone of your face. Knowing your “zones” can help you pin point and treat the cause of breakouts, prevent them in the future and heal them quicker; resulting in a healthier body and healthier skin.I hope this is helpful and preventive
* Yellow eyes: issues with the liver (liver jaundice)
* Gum infections: issues with the intestines
* Swollen under-eyes: issues with the kidneys
* Forehead acne: issues with the digestive system
* Breakouts on the chin: hormonal imbalances
* Swollen cheeks: can tell you that you might have an under active thyroid
* Dark under-eye circles: while mostly hereditary sometimes can signify issues related to the kidneys. quick tip: sometimes dehydration causes dark under-eye circles so drink up and figure out what is the exact amount of water your body requires (each body requires a specific amount).
Here are the face mapping zones and their correlation to the different functions of your body. Enjoy!
Zones – Forehead
Traditionally, this zone is regarded as the “sister” to the bladder and digestive system. If you breakout frequently in this area, it might mean that you need to improve your elimination by drinking more water and eating more “whole” foods.
Zone – Mid Forehead
The middle of the forehead, between the eyebrows, is related to the liver. Congestion in this zone can indicate over consumption of alcohol, rich foods, and possibly a food allergy (such as lactose intolerance).
Zones – Ears
The ears are a highly sensitive area related to the kidneys. If you notice that your ears are very hot, you might be stressing them out – drink plenty of plain water and cut down on caffeine and alcohol.
Zones – Cheeks
The cheeks often give an accurate glimpse into any respiratory distress. Smokers or people suffering from allergies generally experience fine, broken capillaries or congestion in this area.
Zones – Eyes
The eyes are truly a window to the body’s health because they’re related to the kidneys. Dark circles , while often hereditary, are made worse by dehydration and poor elimination.
Zone – Nose & Upper lip
A reddened nose can indicate heightened blood pressure, or the early stages of rosacea. Congestion around the upper lip can occur if you use comedogenic lipsticks or liners.
Zones – Jaw Line
If you’ve had extensive dental surgery done, you might notice a breakout along the jaw line, near the ears. Extreme stress can also cause your adrenal glands to overproduce creating breakouts in this zone.
Zone – Chin
Breakouts or unusual hair growth can indicate hormonal imbalance, possibly caused by extreme stress. Premenstrual breakouts are also very common around the chin.
