I think Sunday might now be Pin Day! A day where I share my top pin of the week! Something creative, inspiring or intriguing! I thought this was interesting. I never seen or heard of Face Mapping! Every girl breaks out! It's one of the pleasures of being a hormonal female! lol We all have those dreaded mornings where we wake up and have a new friend (blemish) that greets us! This usually seems to happen on days that there are special events, a first date or photos being taken - when we don't want it too!
Well thanks to the combined knowledge of dermatologists who have analyzed skin behaviors and ancient Chinese medicinal methods there is a smarter way to interpret and treat skin imperfections by way of “face mapping.” Face mapping is a type of skin analysis that explains why and how certain areas of your face are connected to other parts of your body.
Personally there was about a month span where I was breaking out on and around my chin! I couldn't understand why. Anyways not to get into much detail but I then found out from my doctor I had almost no B12 and was anemic. So she put me on high doses of Bcomplex, iron and other vitamins to balance out my body. Pretty interesting that the "face map" was pretty on point with the stomach and hormones! The two things that were pretty out of whack! Check it out...
Zone 2: Liver — Try cutting back on alcohol, heavy food or dairy. This area can also indicate a food allergy.
Zone 4 & 10: Kidneys — Make sure you’re keeping yourself hydrated with water and cut back on liquids that dehydrate you. This means nix the soda, coffee and/or alcohol.
Zone 5 & 9: Respiratory system — Those who smoke or have allergies tend to have acne here.
Zone 6 & 8: Kidneys — Dark circles are usually a result of dehydration. Drink up!
Zone 7: Heart — Check your blood pressure and make sure you’re not using makeup that irritates your skin.
Zone 12: Stomach — Consider a detox or adding more fiber to your diet to help with digestion.
Zone 11 & 13: Hormones — Stress and hormonal changes can sometimes be alleviated with more water and a few extra servings of dark, leafy greens but if breakouts in this area persistent, make an appointment with your doctor to look into a possible hormonal imbalance. Additionally, breakouts in this area also indicate when you are ovulating (and which side).
Zone 14: Illness — Can be a sign of your body fighting bacteria to avoid illness. Take a breather and drink plenty of fluids.
So the next time you breakout or notice dark under eye circles, look to your map (or shall we say face map)!
