If you ever suffer from pesky breakouts on a certain part of your face, there could be more to it than just greasy skin.
Many alternative practitione’s believe that blemishes in particular areas of the skin can actually reflect different problems in your internal health.
- Forehead: Poor digestion due to toxins and lack of water. Drink water throughout the day and avoid fizzy and caffeinated drinks as much as possible.
- T-zone: Your nose is linked to the liver (alcoholics and those with liver damage from causes like cancer sometimes develop a red nose), so acne here could potentially signify liver dysfunction.
- Around the eyes: The skin in this area is connected to the health of the kidneys. Conditions like dark under-eye circles may signify that the kidneys are malfunctioning or that you’re dehydrated.
- Upper cheeks: The tops of the cheeks are linked to the lungs. Inhaling air pollution can contribute to this. Externally though, bacteria on the surface of your cell phone or sleeping on a dirty pillowcase can be big culprits.
- Lower cheeks: Poor dental hygiene. Problems in the mouth, especially those involving the gums, will be visible here. Regularly brushing, flossing and avoiding sugary foods and drinks will improve oral hygiene and blemishes associated with it.
- Nose: Your nose is also linked to your heart. Swelling or bulbous changes of the nose signify high blood pressure. Avoid energy drinks, reduce salt intake and eat more fruits and veggies to promote heart health and low blood pressure.
- Ears: The ears are also associated with the kidneys—breaking out here may signal dehydration. Make sure to drink more water throughout the day, and avoid consuming excess salt.
- Chin: Linked to the small intestine. Again, diet changes can make a huge difference. One should stay away from dairy products and oily meals. Adopt healthier eating habits, specifically ones that include more fruits and vegetables, to keep digestion running smoothly and nixing related skin problems.
When you notice a dark under-eye circle, or really bad acne, your skin is probably trying to communicate on behalf of the internal organs.
However, do remember that, as with all medical issues, it is always best to see your doctor or dermatologist for a proper prognosis.
This is just a general guide to head you off in the right investigative direction – just because you break out between the brows doesn’t always mean you have a bad liver!
