Mein Shiang, reading the face.  Chinese medicine says that our imbalances show up on  our faces. Each of our organs is an open window to our face.  Our eyes are windows to our liver, our nose to our lungs, our ears to our kidneys, our lips are windows to our spleen and our tongue is a window to the heart.  When our body’s energy is in perfect flow our skin will be in perfect condition.  Acne on our face and where its located could indicate an underlying cause.  Western medicines say there is little truth to this Eastern way of thinking (please see the disclaimer below).

1 and 3 Forehead: Digestive System

The Chinese believe that our forehead is connected to our bladder and digestive system.  Acne on the forehead could mean your diet is rich in dairy, sugary foods and could indicate too much alcohol. Deep lines could indicate a blocked colon and/or gallbladder.  Too much stress and irregular sleeping habits also can cause this symptom.  Drinking green tea will help cleanse out your system.

2 Liver:  Area between your eyes

This area is believed to be connected to the liver and heart.  Acne in this area means too much alcohol, dairy and/or fatty foods in your diet and needs to be reduced.  Food allergies also show up in this area.  Exercising, getting more sleep avoiding alcohol, smoking and late night snacking will help reduce the acne in this area.

4 and 10 Ears: Kidneys and Heart

If this area is hot or red you need to cut back on caffeine and alcohol.  Deep creases in the ear lobe are signs of heart problems.  Too much cholesterol.

6 and 8 Under Eyes: Kidneys

Dark circles could mean something simple as inadequate rest and/or dehydration.  Sinus allergies and Kidney problems usually show up in this area.  Drink plenty of water and cut out all coffee, tea and soda.

5 and 9 Cheeks: Heart and Respiratory System

Break-outs here could be from your cell phone and even resting dirty hands on the face.  Cheeks are linked to the respiratory system and the heart.  Fatty foods could cause break outs here.  Smokers could get those red veins on the cheek area.  Drinking alcohol, coffee, tea and sodas causes dehydration and break-outs here.  Washing your pillow case weekly, clean your cell phone daily with an alcohol-based wipe, cutting back on sugar and eating more greens will help with future break-outs.

7 Nose and Upper Lip: Stomach and Intestines

Acne on the nose area could mean high blood pressure and constipation due to poor diet.  Decrease spicy and oily foods.  Increase good fats such as Omega 3, 6 and 9.  Deep lip lines could indicate digestion problems.  Break-outs in this area could be due to food allergies.

11 and 13 Sides of Chin: Hormones

Break-outs and pigmentation in this area are hormonal related and often occur during your menstrual cycle.

12 Chin: Stomach

May need to add more fiber to your diet and consider detoxing to help with digestion.

14 Neck and Decollete:

Acne in this area usually indicates your body fighting bacteria to avoid illness.  Drink plenty of fluids and get plenty of rest.  Lines on the neck sometimes mean thyroid problems.

I came across some very interesting articles.  You can find them below.
