What Is Your Acne Telling You? Can You Rely On Face Mapping?



Read this article


My problem areas:

4 & 5: Kidneys — Anything around the eyes (including dark circles) point to dehydration. Drink up!

9 & 10: Respiratory system — Do you smoke? Have allergies? This is your problem area for both. If neither of these is the issue, don’t let your body overheat, eat more cooling foods, cut down on sugar and get more fresh air. Also keep the body more alkaline by avoiding foods that make the body acidic (meat, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, sugar) and adding more alkalizing foods like green veggies and wheatgrass juice. Another thing that most of forget – dirty cell phones and pillow cases are two of the top acne culprits and this area is what they affect the most

Not so sure on how much I can rely on this science but I do eat poorly and don't drink enough water so it must have some validity to it. For each problem area mentioned though the cause is different, the treatment (drink water and eat better) is the recommended solution.

Sigh, I'm pretty solidly in the 11-12-13 region. Hormones? Makes sense and doesn't all at the same time. I feel like I'm past the point in my life where hormones should be affecting me like this (23 y/o male), yet I'm pretty healthy and don't have any of the other issues listed for the other problem areas.

Regardless, this is really interesting. Thanks for posting!
