In Chinese medicine, it is believed that every part of the face acts as a window to an inner area of the body. Whether this area of the face looks healthy or unhealthy can indicate how well certain internal organs are working.
That always sounds right, especially when it comes to localizing the causes of stains. Many of our error-prone customers usually have a specific area in which they break out more often.
To find out whether there is a reason for this, we have put together our "Face Map" to show which organ the individual areas refer to:
Spots on the forehead indicate a stressed bladder or a stressed digestive system. Try increasing your water, green tea, and fiber-rich foods to help eliminate toxins and excess waste.
In this area, where fat can get from the hair onto the face, contact points are also common. So try to hold the hair up during training or between washes and get it out of the way.
2. Between the brows
It is believed that spots between the eyebrows are related to the liver, so they often appear in the morning after a night!
They can also be a result of excessive consumption of rich or processed foods. Therefore, try to limit foods with a high content of refined sugar, salt and fresh, homemade meals.
If you drink less alcohol, you can not only see between the eyebrow defects, but also lighten your skin. Alcohol is a diuretic that not only causes dehydration, but also exhausts important skin nutrients and gives your skin the classic shade of gray the next day.
Typically, the cheeks and nose are related to the lungs, so you may be prone to spots if you regularly have colds or chest infections. Read our tips for fighting colds and for naturally strengthening your immune system.
However, if you are cold-free and have a healthy respiratory system, your phone could be the mistake. The average screen on the phone is said to contain more bacteria than a toilet seat. Therefore, wipe it with an antibacterial cloth every few days to avoid the transmission of bacteria to the skin.
If you have small spots and redness on the cheeks, this could be a sign of rosacea. For more information, see our tips on how to keep rosacea under control.
4. Chin & Jawline
Patches on the chin and along the jaw are often associated with hormonal problems.
They often occur at the same time in the month or can be associated with contraception, new medication, illness, or pregnancy. It is notoriously difficult to treat hormonal acne with topical products alone. A more holistic approach must be taken to restore any imbalances.
In our guide to hormonal acne you will find further information and suggestions for getting started.
