Im having a bit of an obsession with Chinese Face Mapping at the moment. If you suffer from Break out’s, Dark circles or Dull spots  you can get a better understanding of what maybe going on with your body and health by looking at where your having these symptoms. Face Mapping hails from ancient Chinese medicine it really interests me so wanted to share with you. Check out Alex Gariano’s blog below!

I hope this helps if you may be suffering from a break out. 

Love,

Alex Gariano at U Look Haute  “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. …Think of your blemishes as X’s on a map that is your face. Different zones correspond to different problems. With this ‘map’ as your guide, you can address the underlying causes of blemishes and correctly determine how to prevent them from recurring.”

Here’s a quick guide :

Zone 1 & 3: Bladder & Digestive System — Improve your diet and drink more water.

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.

P.S. Please note that these are general guidelines. Just becuase you breakout on your nose doesn’t mean you have a heart problem. As with all medical issues, it is always best to see your doctor or dermotologist for a proper prognosis.
