What is your face ance telling you?
I recently broke out bad on my chin and the left side of my chin, so I decided to do a little researching.
I’ve seen this before and totally forgot about it.
The Face mapping of acne.
An ancient Chinese medicine system.
When it comes to Asians and Pacific Islanders, we particularly take great pride in our skin, hair, and nails.
I know I do.
I decided to make my own little picture, so please excuse my magnetic grocery shopping list in the background.
I’m such a goof and love pink and Hello Kitty and yes, I’m in my 30’s.
Don’t judge me. LOL
Each number represents a zone.
Zones 1& 2 (Bladder/Digestive system)
Acne in these areas may mean that you need to increase your water intake and improve your diet. Drink plenty of water and make room for more veggies and fruits.
(I can deal with this one.)
Zone 3 (Liver)
You may want to cut back on your diary intake.
(I’m lactose intolerant, so I can deal with this one too.)
Zones 4 & 10/ 6 & 8 (Kidneys)
Zone 4 & 10- cut back on sodas, coffee, caffeine, and alcohol.
(Say it aint so……cut back on coffee?? Do they know if they made a IV drip of coffee, I would have it hooked up to me 24/7!)
Zone 6 & 8- Hydrate and get plenty of rest.
(Hydrate I can do, but the get plenty of rest part….umm, yea, I’m a total insomniac.
Zones 5 & 9 (Respiratory)
If you’re a smoker, you may notice acne here. Also if you have seasonal allergies.
(I can vouch for this one.)
Zone 7 (Heart)
You may want to check your blood pressure.
Zones 11 & 13 (HORMONES)
Caused by either high stress or the monthly.
(High stress….well, now that the military is looking to cut thousands of people out of the force, I can see the stress in this one.)
Zone 12 (Stomach)
Time to Detoxify your body.
(It is time for me to do a cleanse anyways. The last time I did a complete cleanse, my skin was flawless and felt so clean. It’s almost indescribable how it felt. I had tons of energy and slept well.)
Zone 14 (Illness)
Your body may be fighting a bacterial infection. Drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest, and take your daily vitamins.
Now, I’m sure you’re probably looking at your face right now and saying, “OMG!”
Let’s see if we can fight these nasty sore spots in the new year!
Until next time
