Face Mapping: What Your Skin Is Probably Trying To Tell You
Written by: Brandi Monasco
It’s pretty difficult to understand or know what is going on within your body, even if you are completely in tune with yourself. Those blemishes and pimples that you occasionally get might be more than just a breakout. They could be indicators that something is internally wrong.
Face mapping is an ancient practice in Ayurvedic medicine (also known as Ayurveda) that has been practiced for many years. Ayurveda is one of the world’s oldest holistic healing systems. It was first developed and practiced in India thousands of years ago. It is based on the belief that “health and wellness depend on a delicate balance between the mind, body and spirit.” It focuses on promoting good health rather than fighting disease.
Face mapping connects a point on your face, such as your forehead, to an organ or a body part that may have a weakness or toxicity.
With face mapping, look carefully at where you are breaking out. The location of your breakout could be a clue as to what is causing it.
If You Breakout On Your Forehead:
Digestive System – Gall Bladder and Liver
Pimples on your forehead may indicate that something is going on within your digestive system. You may have a hard time digesting certain foods or it could indicate a liver problem.
Pimples on your forehead can also indicate that you are dealing with stress or have an irregular sleep schedule. Avoid eating refined and processed food as well as sugary and fatty foods to help with the digestive issues. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet and try yoga or meditation to help reduce your stress levels and to better maintain them.
If you have an irregular sleep pattern, try to get more sleep, at least 7 to 9 hours each night. If you suspect liver issues, drink some dandelion tea or lemon juice in warm water to detoxify your liver.
If You Breakout Between Your Eyebrows:
Kidneys and Liver
Pimples between your eyebrows could indicate that you are consuming too much fatty, greasy foods. To prevent this, stick to healthy foods and cut down on the rich foods. Cut out any type of dairy in your diet. Get more sleep and exercise.
It could also indicate that you are drinking too much alcohol. If you find that you breakout between your eyebrows the morning after drinking, this could be your problem. Simply cut out/reduce your alcohol intake.
If You Breakout On Your Cheeks:
Lungs and Digestive System
Breaking out on your cheeks or having discolored patches could indicated that your metabolism is running slowly and that you could be absorbing a lower amount of nutrients than what your body really needs. It could also mean that you are consuming too much sugar.
Try reducing your intake of sugar and see if that helps. Breaking out on your cheeks could also mean that your respiratory system could be affected by allergies. If it is your lungs that are the reason for breaking out, try doing breathing exercises and aerobic exercises to help strengthen your lungs.
If You Breakout On Your Chin:
Breaking out on your chin can indicate changes in your hormones (especially around “that” time of the month, ladies). Around “that” time, pay extra attention to your skin care and eat foods that help with regulating your hormones. Also try drinking spearmint tea and increasing your consumption of omega-3 fatty acids.
Listening to your body when these kinds of things occur can really make a positive, healthy impact in your life. Give these tips a try the next time you have a breakout and let us know how it goes!
