That blemish didn’t pop up for fun. Your skin is trying to tell you something. And according to ancient Chinese medicine, face mapping can help you determine what’s actually causing those pesky pimples.
1. Breakout Area: Forehead
What needs a little ♥: Liver & Gallbladder
Press pause on the junk food. Give your body a little TLC by drinking lots of water and eating raw veggies.
2. Breakout Area: Between the Brows
What needs a little ♥: Stomach & Liver
The solution for that third eye? Stop stressing out your digestive organs. Do some calming exercises, like yoga. Then take a probiotic and get some sleep.
3. Breakout Area: Temples & Brow Line
What needs a little ♥: Kidneys
You’re dehydrated and your kidneys need a little R&R. Blemishes can be caused by excessive fat consumption. Eat some kale and berries for a quick fix.
4. Breakout Area: Middle Cheek
What needs a little ♥: Stomach & Lungs
If you’re experiencing a mid-face flare-up, avoid common triggers such as corn, soy, wheat, alcohol, and sugar.
5. Breakout Area: Mouth & Chin
What needs a little ♥: Stomach
You probably break out here the most during the holidays, when you’ve had a little too much fun. Trade glasses of wine for green smoothies.
6. Breakout Area: Jawline
What needs a little ♥: Ovaries
It’s that time of the month. Combat trouble spots with Omega 3-6-9 tablets to balance hormones. Next week will come soon enough.
