We all love being healthy, physically active and happy. However, with all the work hours we have to go through on daily basis it can get demanding to balance everything out. As a result of such life, getting a few extra pounds, occasional breakouts on our faces and heavy bags under our eyes is practically a must. Good thing is a lot can be done to keep our health in order and with help of some powerful health advice. To attack and solve a problem, we first need to know what the problem is. When it comes to breakouts, each breakout means something. Your face is signaling what’s going on in your entire organism, alerting you to try to repair the damage. Luckily, with help of face mapping, we can actually do a lot. Get on top of your zones and read what they mean. Zones 1 & 2 (temples/forehead): The Digestive System Breaking out across your forehead is practically synonymous with unhealthy diet, extra fat and extra chocolate in your foods. Processed foods are your face’s worst enemy. To stop the blemishes and clear your skin, make sure you up your water intake and take a lot of antioxidant-rich green tea to clear this area. Zone 3 (between brows): Liver Give your best to reduce dairy and alcohol intake if you are looking to reduce breakout situation between your brows. Zone 4 & 5 (around the eyes) and 7 & 8 (ears): Kidneys Anything around the eyes is indicative of dehydration. This goes for dark circles, too. So, drink up! Cut down on aerated drinks, alcohol and coffee as these will cause further dehydration. Zone 6 (nose): Heart If you notice your nose breaking out, it’s time you checked your blood pressure and Vitamin B levels. Further, it’s advisable to get more fresh air, decrease the intake of spicy or pungent food and cut down on meat as much as possible. Besides this, look into ways to lower cholesterol. The best way to do that is to start replacing “bad fats” with “good fats” such as Omega’s 3 and 6 found in fish, nuts, avocados… It wouldn’t harm to make it a routine drinking detox teas as these will flush out all the toxins out of your body. Zone 9 & 10 (cheeks/cheek bones): Respiratory system If you are a smoker or spend a lot of time in unventilated areas, expect your cheeks to go crazy! Breakouts in these areas go for people with allergies, too. If, however, you neither have allergies nor are a smoker but you still get breakouts in these areas, try eating more cooling foods, don’t let your body overheat, cut down on sugar and get more fresh air. Zone 11 & 12 (chin): Hormones This is the signature zone for hormonal changes and stress. While both hormonal changes and stress (especially in women during their cycle) are usually unavoidable, you can decrease their effect. Drink plenty of water, get adequate sleep, eat leafy veggies and your skin will get scrupulously clean in no time. There is another interesting fact about chin breakouts – whichever side of your chin gets a pimple, it’s indicative of which ovary is ovulating that month. Zone 13 (middle chin): Stomach Reduce the toxin overload, step up fibre intake and drink herbal teas to help with digestion. Zone 14 (neck): Illness Most common reason for breakouts in this area is that your body is probably fighting bacteria to avoid illness. In this kind of situation, what you need to do is give it a break! Take a yoga class, take time to breathe deeply, nap often and drink plenty of water. Good luck with your face regimen and know everything always works out just fine!
