Have you ever heard about face mapping skin analysis chart? What exactly does this mean?
Face mapping skin analysis is an ancient Chinese medicine art based on the theory that different sections of the face correspond to specific internal organs of the body. Breakouts, hyper pigmented sessions, lack of luster in these areas all tell a deeper story about our health, and how specific organs within our bodies are functioning.
FOREHEAD | DIGESTION & LIVER
food allergies • dehydration • constipation
Issues in this area can mean several things – your digestive system could be having a hard time breaking down certain foods or you may have an allergy or intolerance to something that you are eating. Also your elimination system may be functioning slowly and inadequately, leading to constipation.
Liver issues could be telling you that you aren't getting enough sleep or that you are experiencing emotions, such as stress, anger, sadness or worry, or that you are having an excess of fats, sugar or alcohol. Your lymphatic circulation could very well be stagnant, and could use a little increase in circulation by exercising and being more active.
1. Drink plenty of water, and eat a nutritionally balanced diet full of veggies and fruits.
2. Keep a food diary to help you track your body’s reactions. The most common food allergies are dairy, soy, and gluten – try to eliminate these groups for a month to see how your body resonates with the change.
3. Take digestive enzymes, like a papaya enzyme supplement & probiotics.
4. Become more active, exercise more and add at least 30 minutes of cardio 3 times per week to stimulate your lymphatic system.
5. Do activities on a daily basis that help you relax and be in control of your emotions. Try meditation, yoga, or reading your favorite book.
UNDER THE EYE AREA | KIDNEYS
lack of sleep • not enough nutrients • possibly genetics
Under-eye dark circles can be genetic, but may also indicate sleep deprivation, which doesn't allow for your body to fully repair throughout the resting process.
Also the skin under the eyes is the most delicate and thin of our entire body and as we age, the circulation of blood in this area becomes more visible, creating the appearance of dark circles. You could also be experiencing a mineral deficiency, specifically iron. Puffiness under the eyes can indicate fluid retention from too much salt in the diet or too much alcohol. It can also mean allergies, or smoking.
1. Stay away from too much sodium.
2. Get enough sleep daily
3. Take an iron supplement or add a mineral supplement to your diet.
NOSE | HEART
emotions • blood pressure
A red nose may indicate elevated blood pressure, poor circulation or too much alcohol. Breakouts on the tip of the nose can often point to heartache or sadness.
1. Add cardio to your weekly routine, at least 3 times per week for 30 minutes each time.
2. Make sure your cholesterol levels and your blood pressure are in check.
3. Try to laugh more often by watching a funny movie or you can also indulge in self love weekly to feel happier and heal the heart from sadness.
CHEEKS | LUNGS
metabolism • allergies • lung problems
Our lungs need clean, fresh air and deep breaths and our circulation to be working properly. Make sure to take control of any lung related allergy or asthma and to increase your overall circulation and oxygenation by adding cardio to your weekly routine.
1. Do breathing exercises & meditation. Yoga can be truly beneficial for this area.
2. Eat a low fat, healthy diet and increase your fiber intake.
3. Try to go for a hike or do some sort of workout outdoors in nature. Try breathing fresh air at least once per week.
JAWLINE | HORMONES
hormonal imbalance • stress
Endometriosis, uterine fibroids and PCOS can all cause breakouts in this area. Oftentimes can also mean that your hormones are undergoing changes due to puberty or pregnancy.
1. Get your hormones checked to make sure they are well balanced. I recommend getting a blood test with your doctor to better understand your hormonal levels and health of your thyroid.
2. Cut back on processed meats (even if they are vegan) and dairy.
3. Eliminate caffeine
4. Add omega-3 rich foods
5. Manage stress & emotions
6. Maintain a healthy weight
7. Exercise regularly
8. Sleep at least 8 hours per night
CHIN | STOMACH & COLON
low absorption of nutrients • over eating
Make sure that you are having regular bowel movements, and integrate more fiber, vegetables and whole grains into your diet.
1. Eat a healthy and balanced diet.
2. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
3. Work on having bowel movements regularity.
4. Add fiber, probiotics and enzymes to your daily diet.
