All About Face Mapping: What are your breakouts telling you?
Did you know that blemishes and breakouts can be about more than your skin?
According to some experts and the ancient art of face mapping, where you experience, acne can also contain important clues about your overall health. Here is what you need to know:
What is face mapping?
With roots in Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine, practitioners of face mapping believe that because everything in the body is connected, the skin can be used as a tool to diagnose underlying health concerns, based on where your skin issues show up. From internal organs to other systems like the lymphatic and neurological networks, face mapping’s purpose is to pinpoint body imbalances, which may also be able to help you determine the cause of your breakouts.
Breakout zones decoded: what is your skin trying to tell you?
According to the experts, chin acne is often associated with hormonal imbalances, either due to stress, certain medications, or fluctuations that happen with age. If this is where you primarily break out, you may find it helpful to get your hormone levels checked by a medical professional.
In traditional face mapping the forehead is associated with the digestive system, so acne in this area could be related to something as simple as not drinking enough water, or it could also be linked to digestive stress from diet, or the health of your gut microbiome.
The lungs and liver are two major organs represented by the cheeks in face mapping. In fact, depending on which side you break out, the theory is that the left side is related to the lungs, while the right side is connected to the liver. That said, these areas of the face can also commonly break out from mechanical acne issues, such as touching the face or the transfer of bacteria from your cell phone or pillow. If you are concerned about your lungs or liver, it is best to consult your doctor.
Opinions vary on this one, but some face mapping practitioners say T-Zone breakouts have a lot to do with mental health and anxiety, while others cite stress to the heart and gallbladder. Either way, these types of outbreaks can indicate a need to slow down and pay attention to your stress levels.
