Acne Face Mapping

Acne Face Mapping


Face mapping associates facial skin areas with different internal organs - this may explains why we get that same pimple in the same area again and again. The acne face map can help identify the possible causes of your blemishes and find effective ways to deal with your breakouts.

Temples/Eyebrows Brows
Acne in the area around the eyes can be due to poor circulation, gallbladder problems or diets too high in fat, processed foods or alcohol. Water intake is essential as is watching one’s diet and hygiene practices.

Forehead breakouts can be caused by digestive problems, small intestine issues, liver issues, high levels of stress, irregular sleep cycle, poor diets and even reactions to hair products. To combat forehead acne, get at least seven hours of sleep, drink plenty of water to flush out toxins, watch your diet to see if any foods spark breakouts. You can also examine your  facial or hair products are irritating skin. 

Acne around the mouth or lip area may be caused by constipation, an excess of spicy or fried foods and a reaction to a certain toothpaste. An increased intake of fiber, fruits and vegetables can help ease breakouts in this area.

Acne here can be caused by hormonal problems, gynecological issues, or kidney imbalance. Again, rest and water intake helps plenty. You can take omega-3s to keep hormones in balance. Be aware to not rest face in hands, unless hands are thoroughly cleaned.

The ears are closely related to the kidneys. If kidneys are not functioning properly or receiving enough nutrients or water, large and persistent pimples can appear on the ear’s surface. To avoid this, it’s recommended to drink enough water, avoiding excess caffeine and salt.

The left cheek can be faced with breakouts due to the lungs, liver issues, overeating, stress, stomach problems, dirty cell phones, dirty pillowcases, dirty makeup brushes or environmental pollutants. Remain relaxed with a normal daily schedule. Ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, can help battle environmental pollutants and free radicals and protecting skin from premature aging.
