Face mapping – how to read your skin from within

 

Face mapping or reading, traditionally stems from ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.

Back in the day, it was used as a diagnostic tool for prominent leaders and scholars. They believed that the face represented the fortune, health and energy of a person and that by closely examining the condition of the skin and facial shape, like a sleuth you could suss out a person’s character including their physical, mental and emotional state. You could also have the necessary tools and requirements to change your fate and direction. 

Face mapping and reading is a lot deeper than just the epidermis and is way more involved than just being concerned about aging. 

The face is divided into three main zones – upper, middle and lower. Any malfunctions within the organs and the systems - immune, excretory, endocrine, digestive, circulatory, nervous and respiratory – will show up on the face in the form of breakouts, redness, dryness or irritation.

 It’s believed that if the energy of a person was optimal, the complexion would be clear and in good condition. Any malfunctioning or illness would be reflected by a change in colour, texture and appearance.   

A brief overview of how to read your face and what you can do 

Forehead – Bladder and Intestines

The upper part of the forehead reflects the bladder, and the lower part, the intestines and digestion. Issues in this area could relate to constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and urinary tract infections.

Checklist

Ears and Temples – Kidneys


Dehydration, poor lymphatic circulation. When the kidneys are involved, it indicates a deeper level of aging and stress. Nourish the kidneys with proper hydration.

Checklist

Between the Brows – Liver and stomach 

Too much boozing, fatty liver, diseases like hepatitis, jaundice, gallbladder problems and dehydration could show up here. Acne in this area can also be the result of eating too late at night, especially heavy, fatty foods. Flaking and dry skin are linked to dehydration and overworked kidneys. The liver is working too hard to remove toxins from consumption and pollution.

Checklist

Nose & Upper Cheek – Heart and Cardiovascular system

Acne and oiliness can be connected to circulation, blood pressure and cholesterol. Skin conditions like rosacea tend to show up in this zone. Indoor and outdoor air pollution, bad circulation, and high blood pressure can all play havoc with this area of the face. Maintain healthy cholesterol levels and blood pressure.

Checklist

Right Cheek – Lungs and respiratory system

Relate to issues with sinuses and allergies. Pollution, smoking, and asthma will damage this part of the skin. Get plenty of exercise, stay away from pollution, and stop smoking.

Checklist

Left Cheek – Liver and stomach

Exposure to air pollution and smoke, gum issues or inflammation in the mouth or tooth sockets. Lower left cheek acne could represent dental health, so have your teeth professionally cleaned every six months and keep your gums and teeth healthy by flossing and brushing after you eat.

 checklist

Mouth & Lip Area – Endocrine system


Breakouts are associated with hormonal imbalances and issues. Menstrual problems or increased stress levels will trigger the release of cortisol.

Checklist

Jawline and Chin – Stomach, kidney and reproductive organs

Pimples in the middle of the chin are associated with the digestive system. Eating too much fat and sweet food can cause problems in this area as well as excessive caffeine and alcohol consumption. Try to maintain a balanced diet and eat plenty of fruits and demulcent fibre (chia, marshmallow, slippery elm, aloe vera) to improve stomach health. 

Checklist

Neck – Thyroid

Good cholesterol production from saturated fats is the precursor of your most important hormones. Eating the wrong foods, being under artificial lights and disconnected from nature can disturb healthy hormone levels and balance.
