Did you know that health problems inside your body are often reflected on the outside through your skin? Face mapping is a form of skin analysis wherein the facial landscape is divided into fourteen zones. Each zone is thoroughly examined to provide an insight to different underlying problems associated with each specific zone. This will not only treat your skin blemishes but it could also treat the underlying health problem that could’ve caused such skin problems as well.
Skin blemishes in the face can still be a cause of direct external factors but frequent, recurring problems could mean something more. Look into your body’s health with the help of face mapping and find out what your skin is telling you.
Zones 1&3 – Forehead: Digestive System & Bladder
Frequent breakouts and other problems in the forehead suggest poor digestion and a build-up of toxins in the bladder. This means that you might need to improve your diet and elimination. Try detoxing your body by drinking more water and eating more whole foods.
Zone 2 – Between the Eyebrows: Liver
Problems in this area are related to the liver. Try cutting back on alcohol and fatty foods to give the liver a chance to relax since these types of food are hard for the liver to process. This is also the area where food allergies such as lactose intolerance start to show up, so consider taking note of the food you’re eating.
Zones 4&10 – Ears: Kidneys
The ears can be associated with the kidneys. If the ears feel hot or if it’s breaking out, this could mean dehydration. Make sure to drink plenty of water and cut back on salt and dehydrating foods such as caffeine and alcohol.
Zones 5&9 – Upper Cheeks: Respiratory System
Problems in the form of congestion, puffiness, spots, or broken capillaries in the upper portion of the cheeks suggest respiratory distress. Even though you’re not a smoker, your respiratory system is still under constant attack from various forms of air pollution leading to the problems in the upper cheek areas. Try to maintain good health and get plenty of fresh air to keep your respiratory system functioning in optimal condition.
Zones 6&8 – Eyes: Kidneys
The eyes are also indicative of kidney problems. Conditions such as dark under-eye circles, although most often hereditary, may worsen due to dehydration and poor elimination. Make sure to drink plenty of water and cut back on salt and dehydrating foods such as caffeine and alcohol.
Zones 7 – Nose: Heart
Your nose can be linked to your heart. Redness and swelling or bulbous changes of the nose may either indicate high blood pressure or the early stages of rosacea. Try to change your diet into something that would lower your cholesterol such as by replacing “bad” fats with the “good” fats found in Omegas 3 and 6 in nuts, avocados, fish, and flax seed. Reduce your salt intake and eat more fruits and vegetables which are good for your heart and help lower your blood pressure.
Zones 11&13 – Lower Cheeks or Jaw Line: Mouth and/or Ovaries
Poor dental hygiene, especially those involving the gums, is often reflected by blemishes in the jaw line. Regular brushing and flossing, as well as avoiding sweet foods, could help relieve the lower cheeks of blemishes. Women may also experience break outs in this area during or prior to menstruation.
Zone 12 – Chin: Hormones and/ or Small Intestine
Breakouts in the chin are often related to hormonal imbalance, possibly due to stress. Problems in the chin are also indicative of poor diet since the chin is linked to the small intestine. Adopt a healthier diet rich in fiber, fruits, and vegetables to promote healthier digestion, and learn to regulate your sleep and meal cycles.
Zone 14 – Neck: Adrenal Stress and/or Illness
Redness of the neck could indicate adrenal stress. Breakouts could indicate that the body is fighting bacteria to prevent illness. Make sure to drink plenty of water and eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and lean meat while avoiding unhealthy foods. Get enough sleep and exercise regularly.
