You can tell a lot about the health or your body simply by looking at your face. Parts of the face correspond directly to different parts of the body (internal organs). The location of acne spots on your face can give you an indication of their underlying cause. By analyzing where you get pimples and "mapping" where acne pops up, you can help prevent zits from forming.
zones 1 & 3
Traditionally, this zone is regarded as the "sister" to the bladder and digestive system. If you breakout frequently in this area, it might mean that you need to improve your elimination by drinking more water and eating more "whole" foods.
The middle of the forehead, between the eyebrows, is related to the liver. Congestion in this zone can indicate over consumption of alcohol, rich foods, and possibly a food allergy (such as lactose intolerance). Look into digestive aids in the form of a gentle cleanse (like eating a raw food diet for a week, or cutting out meat, dairy, caffeine, processed food and sugar from your diet for a little while.)
zones 4 & 10
The ears are highly sensitive area related to kidneys. If you notice that your ears are very hot, you might be stressing them out - drink plenty of plain water and cut down on caffeine and alcohol.
zones 5 & 9
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.
zones 6 & 8
The eyes are truly a window to the body's health because they're related to the kidneys. Dark circles are made worse by dehydration and poor elimination.
A reddened nose can indicate heightened blood pressure, or the early stages of rosacea. Congestion around the upper lip can occur if you use comedogenic lipsticks or liners.
stomach: as with the other areas of the face connected to the stomach, you will want to look into any possible food sensitivities or allergies (they are sometimes the foods you crave the most!) Look into a gentle detox and adding more greens and fiber into your diet.
zones 11 & 13
Usually hormonal stress or changes cause breakouts in this area for women. Bulking up on greens and staying hydrated during the premenstrual cycle will help minimize any hormonal breakouts. If you are breaking out in this area all month long, you may want to look into an estrogen cream to balance out your hormones.
usually linked to stress or a sign that the body is trying to fight off sickness (bacterial invasion). give yourself a break, take a yoga class or two, take a nap, take time to breathe deeply and know that everything always works out.
