Face Mapping: Skin Analysis

Skin Imbalances & Acne Face Map

Chinese Face Mapping is all about renewing your skin from within. The ancient practice goes like this: since our skin is our largest organ, any imbalances in the body show up there. Assessing the skin on the face can provide insight into the internal causes of all kinds of skin imperfections. These include: acne, Rosacea, blemishes, breakouts, dry skin, flaky skin, skin discoloration, skin rashes or skin puffiness. By fixing the underlying causes, the skin on the face will heal. To sum it up: Healthy Body, Healthy Skin. That makes Chinese Skin Mapping a win-win! Here’s more:

What is Chinese Skin Mapping for Skin Imperfections? Where did Face Mapping For Acne Develop?

The ancient discipline of skin mapping has its origins in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which is thousands of years old. Long before the Western world developed MRIs to see inside the body or blood tests to analyze our health, Asian doctors relied on what they could see and touch to detect and diagnose health problems. Additionally, they believed that any skin imperfections they saw on the face corresponded to imbalances in particular organs of our body. Lastly, their way of healing these imbalances didn’t involve popping a pill from the pharmacy. Rather, they included lifestyle changes, like recommendations on diet, exercise and stress relief.  

Here’s what’s your face has to say about what’s going on inside your body:


Chinese Face Mapping: FOREHEAD

Face Mapping Skin Analysis: Problems with Digestive System

Skin changes on the forehead represent a toxic build-up in the liver and gallbladder, likely due to a fatty diet, too many processed foods or excessive alcohol consumption.

Try thinking simple with a low-glycemic, balanced diet of lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats.

Chinese Face Mapping: UNDER THE EYES

Face Mapping Skin Analysis: Problems with Digestive System

Any puffiness or dark circles under eyes suggests imbalance in the stomach, kidneys and liver.

To flush the system, remove alcohol, caffeine, salt and sugar from your diet and replace with a cleansing tea or plenty of water. And don’t forget  to get eight hours of restorative rest.

Chinese Face Mapping: CHEEKS

Face Mapping Skin Analysis: Problems with Respiratory System

Any environmental stress is likely to show up on the mid-face, which is why Rosacea flares, skin allergies or skin rashes are common on cheeks.

Be sure to keep your pillows and sheets clean, keep hands and cell phones away from the face, and minimize exposure to environmental stressors like pollution and tobacco smoke. Additionally, if you experience protracted skin problems on your cheeks, you may want to explore the possibility of a food allergy with your doctor.

Chinese Face Mapping: NOSE

Face Mapping Skin Analysis: Problems with Heart / Circulatory System

Many of the issues associated with heart health can result in skin imperfections on the nose, including high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels or heart palpitations due to anxiety or stress,. These conditions can ramp up excessive oil production to the nose, resulting in blackheads and blemishes.

Boost HDL levels by replacing saturated fats with healthy fats, including nuts, salmon and avocados. Minimize salt and alcohol consumption. And try a discipline that improves the quality of your breathing, like yoga or meditation, in order to minimize anxiety and emotional stress.

Chinese Face Mapping: CHIN / JAWLINE AREA

Face Mapping Skin Analysis: Problems with Hormonal System

This area is connected to the reproductive organs and colon. Any skin imperfections here have likely been triggered by stress or hormonal imbalances.

Avoid eating close to bedtime, get 20 minutes of exercise or meditation each day, and adopt a habit of early to bed and early to rise.
