Use Face Mapping to understand everything your skin is trying to tell you!

Face Mapping and everything you should know. Not only is your skin the biggest and most visible organ, but it is also the quickest and most explicit when it comes to delivering the message that something is wrong with your health. The Chinese believe that a person’s skin reflects their inner health, and this fact has led to the development of many methods and techniques used to keep both your skin and your overall health in good shape.

Among these techniques is face mapping, which serves as a tool to identify the cause of your blemishes. Face mapping includes splitting your face into several sections as the nose, chin, and forehead and regarding them as individual zones that each carries a message about an individual’s internal health.

Read on below to learn more about this technique and how you can use it to learn more about your body’s health.

Face Mapping zones

Zones 1 and 3 (The forehead)

Breakouts on your forehead are usually the cause of too much fat in your diet or a lack of water. In this case, the first thing you must do is increase your water intake and detox your body by incorporating green tea into your diet.

Breakouts in this area can also be caused by using cosmetics that are not suitable for your skin type or using products clogging your skin’s pores.

Zone 2 (Between the eyebrows)

The occurrence of spots in this zone has been linked to food allergies. Therefore, it is best to consult your doctor if you are worried your body has developed some intolerance. However, more than often, an increased intake of alcohol and dairy can be what causes the problem, so you might want to reconsider your diet and make a few changes if needed.

Zones 4,6,8 and 10 (the eyes and ears)

Dark circles around the eyes and spots around the ears and eyes might indicate kidney problems or dehydration. You may also experience the sensation of your ears burning up. In such cases, you must increase your water intake (drink 10 cups a day), reduce salt consumption and avoid drinking too much coffee and alcohol.

Zone 7 (the nose)

High blood pressure is often to blame for spots appearing in this area. Reduce high blood pressure by making a few changes to your diet, like replacing bad fats with food like fish, nuts, vegetables, and make sure to consult a doctor about your condition.

Also, since the skin of our noses is full of dilated pores, to avoid spots on this zone, you must pay special attention to regularly cleaning your makeup brushes.

Zones 5 and 9 (the cheeks)

Smokers are most prone to developing acne in this area because the cheeks are linked to the respiratory system. However, these issues can be easily solved by just exposing yourself to some fresh air and introducing a simple walk around the block into your daily routine.

Zone 12 (the chin)

A diet loaded with heavy foods and getting too little or no exercise are the two major factors contributing to breakouts on your chin. To help with digestion, it is essential to make changes like introducing fiber to your diet, and trying a little exercise for a change won’t hurt either.

Zones 11 and 13 (the jawline)

For most women, pimples and acne around that certain time of the month are very common because they are linked to hormonal imbalance and stress. Sadly, the matter is out of your hands since there is no way to prevent these changes, but a proper diet and some exercise may do the trick.

Zone 14 (the neck)

Spots in this area usually suggest that your body is in the middle of the process of fighting against some bacteria. So, if you have not been feeling well lately, we recommend getting some rest and plenty of fluids.

How to get rid of spots?

The best way to tackle the root of this problem and get clearer and healthier skin is a holistic approach. According to Dr. Hunter, to combat acne issues, both internal and external changes must be made, including a healthier diet and lifestyle.

Foods to eat for clear skin

To improve your appearance and feel more vital and healthier, eat green foods. This means consuming lean proteins found in red and black beans, turkey, nuts, and brown rice. Avoid eating red meat more than once a week and eat whole foods with little processing.

Foods to avoid

First, you must remember that moderation is the key factor in a well-balanced diet. Of course, avoiding sugary treats is necessary to keep your appeal healthy, but since the temptation can be very powerful, we recommend always going for dark chocolate when in need to satisfy your sweet tooth.
