Your Face, Mapped Out!

Written by Angela, 3rd September 2017

Your face can tell us a lot about your general health and wellbeing; and your general health and wellbeing have an impact on the health of your skin.

When carrying out a Face Mapping skin analysis we are looking at key areas on your face that assist us in treating your skin in an holistic manner.

For example, the zone between the eyebrows corresponds to the liver. It is not a coincidence that the client who puts high stress on his or her liver by eating rich food and drink will often show flaking, redness and puffiness between their eyebrows in this ‘wine and dine’ area of the face. It can also indicate an intolerance or food allergy such as a lactose intolerance.

The forehead area is ‘sister’ to the bladder and digestive system. Frequent breakouts in this area, might mean that there is a need to improve the elimination process by drinking more water and eating more whole foods.

The cheeks often give an accurate glimpse into any respiratory distress. Smokers or people suffering from allergies generally experience fine, broken capillaries or congestion in this area which relates to the lungs. Deep naso-labial lines can indicate a compromised lung condition.

Even the ears can tell us something about you. Ears that are very hot might indicate kidney stress and  you should increase plain water intake and cut down on caffeine and alcohol.The eyes are also an indication of kidney health. Dark circles, while often hereditary, are made worse by dehydration and poor elimination.

A reddened nose can indicate heightened blood pressure, or the early stages of rosacea.

Breakouts along the jawline near the ears can indicate problems with the teeth. People who have had extensive dental surgery often find that they experience breakouts in this area.

And finally, breakouts or unusual hair growth around the chin area can indicate hormonal imbalance, possibly caused by extreme stress. Premenstrual breakouts are also very common on the chin which is related to sexual health.
