Face Mapping: What Your Skin is Telling You About Your Body
Face mapping is an ancient practice rooted in Ayurvedic teachings which imparts that internal issues are manifested by inflammation (typically in the form of breakouts) in different areas of the face that correlate to other body parts, organs, and organ systems.
Environmental factors can certainly also play a role in where your face tends to break out. For example, touching your face transfers dirt and bacteria from your hands that can lead to breakouts and congestion.
However, when environmental factors are ruled out, it may be time to consider that your breakouts are being caused by internal factors.
Breakouts that occur on the forehead are typically a result of stress as this area correlates with our nervous system. Getting plenty of rest, and reducing stressors or finding healthy coping mechanisms for unavoidable or everyday stressors are crucial for clearing up skin in this area.
The area between the eyebrows is linked to the digestive system so breakouts in this area are often the result of a poor diet. Avoiding alcohol and processed foods that are high in fat and sugar will help to relieve acne between the brows.
Inflammation around the eye area is related to kidney issues so staying hydrated with plenty of water is important for kidney health. Using the Hibiscus Ultra Lift Eye Cream from Eminence will instantly provide visible results for under eye bags, dark circles and tired-looking eyes. Natural peptides and caffeine combine forces to smooth wrinkles, de-puff and minimize dark circles, while hibiscus and ice wine instantly lift and tighten, transforming eyes in a flash.
The nose is associated with the heart and circulatory system so getting regular exercise and eating heart healthy foods are important for staying healthy and keeping the pores on the nose from becoming congested.
Environmental factors such as cell phone use and sleeping on dirty pillow cases can cause breakouts on the cheeks so frequently wiping dirt and bacteria from your phone and changing your pillowcase every few days can help keep cheeks clear. However internal issues involving the lungs can also lead to blemishes on the cheeks.
Breakouts on the chin are caused by hormonal imbalances which can at times be out of our control, especially for women. Using the Eight Greens Youth Serum on the affected area (and all over the face) treats and prevents hormonal breakouts. A unique blend of eight botanical ingredients supply phytoestrogens and antioxidants to calm inflammation, regenerate and soften hormonally imbalanced skin. This incredible serum also contains Eminence’s Biocomplex2, a super antioxidant booster that restores radiance, vitality and strength to the skin through a targeted blend of nutrients, ensuring visible, long-lasting results.
