Face Mapping: What’s Your Skin Trying To Tell You?


Isn’t it awful to see a large zit staring back at you from the mirror! Eeek!

Your skin – the largest and the most visible organ in your body – acts like a mirror – literally!  Whenever something’s wrong with your body, it reflects it. That’s why you need “face mapping”.

So, what is “face mapping”?

It’s a tried-and-tested technique of understanding the problems that the pimples on your face identify.

What is Face Mapping?

Breakouts on different parts of your face indicate a certain kind of underlying problem in your body that you need to address before it’s too late! Mapping the face is to break down the face into different segments that can help you identify pimples there with specific underlying issues.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioners, chemical imbalance within these organs is transferred through the body as “qi” (energy), triggering reactions, including those manifested on specific areas of the face as pimples on the forehead, pimples on the chin, pimple on the nose, forehead acne, or even dryness along with pimples on the face.
