A guide to face mapping. Struggling with breakouts but not quite sure why? Take a look at your skin and analyse your troublesome areas.
Face mapping is an ancient practice of Ayurveda which connects points of your face to an organ or body part. It essentially suggests what to treat internally for external results – clear skin.
Breakouts on the forehead suggest you may have an issue with your digestive system. Think about the foods you are eating and try to incorporate more raw fruit and vegetables into your diet. It could also indicate food intolerances – try eliminating wheat, dairy or other allergens to see if your digestion improves. Slow digestion? Ayurvedic triphala is a blend of three fruits and is great for cleansing!
Between the Brows:
Congestion between your eyebrows suggests trouble with your liver. Try to cut down on fatty foods and reduce your alcohol intake. According to Ayurveda, you should try liver-supporting herbs such as Punarnava Guggul, milk thistle seed or yellow dock root. Drinking plenty of water also helps to support the liver.
Trouble on your cheeks suggests you may be suffering from pollutants or allergies. Consider investing in an air purifier for your home or office space. It’s also a good idea to make sure you regularly wash or sanitise items which regularly come in contact with your face, such as your pillow cases and mobile phone.
Spots on and around your nose are considered to be linked to your heart and blood pressure. Perhaps get your blood pressure checked and try yoga or meditation to reduce stress. To maintain a healthy heart, ensure you’re eating a healthy diet. Arjuna is also an Ayurvedic herb considered to support the heart.
Breakouts on the chin are considered to be linked to hormones. Give your skin some extra love around that time of the month using your favourite Purifying products. If you’re looking to balance your hormones, taking shatavari root can work wonders internally.
