What Your Face Says About Your Health

what your face says about your health

Chinese face mapping is a holistic approach to skin care and overall health of the body.

I originally learned about face mapping through a further education course taught by Dermalogica and have continued research on my own. Previously, I had heard that breakouts around my chin and jaw were related to hormones but I had never considered that the placement of all breakouts or skin concerns could also be related to other organs. Makes so much sense!

My approach to Chinese medicine is not to replace Western medicine but instead to find a complementary balance of both. I always strive to take a more holistic approach at first and if I don’t see the results I am looking for I will then turn to Western medicine and products.

Many skin and health issues can be prevented by living  healthy and balanced lifestyle including not smoking, limiting alcohol intake, sleeping well and drinking plenty of water. You will notice that these actions are listed in many of the ‘solutions’ below and for good reason! Now’s the time to find out what your face says about your health!

*Please remember I am not a doctor so definitely check with your physician before trying out any supplements mentioned below!
