The Skincare Post: Face Mapping

A few weeks back I was asked to do a post on treating spots - easy peasy as I have my go to products to calm breakouts - but I'm also much more of a prevention > treatment kinda girl when it comes down to it. You may have heard me rattle on a fair few times about the issues I've had with my skin. I only ever get spots on my forehead and for a long time I couldn't figure out what was causing this - until I saw this post by The Beauty Gypsy on Face Mapping. Since then I've been able to control my spots and rarely get them anymore - Yippiee!

So what is Face Mapping? In a nut shell it's a technique used to explain how certain parts of your face are connected to certain parts of the body. In the image above I've zoned up my face - complete with real life example spots (I ate naughty food just for you guys!) - and below are the factors that can cause spots in each area. Obviously this is more of a guideline, I've been known to sprout spots everywhere in certain times of the month, but outside of that I've found its actually been very accurate.

Zones 1 & 2: The Digestive System - Spots can be caused by processed and junk foods, as well as high amounts of fat in your diet. Beauty Gypsy recommends stepping up your water intake and cooling foods like cucumbers - I also find going on a mini detox after a binge helps - lots of foods with antioxidants and green teas help calm everything down!

Zone 3: Liver - Alcohol and greasy foods can cause breakouts in this area as well as reactions to food allergy's. If you've been on an alcohol/takeaway fueled binge then try 30 minutes of light exercise each day and get a good nights sleep so your liver can recover. If you think it's a food allergy then obviously consult your doctor.

Zones 4, 5, 7 and 8: Kidneys - Spots, or even dark circles around the eyes can be caused by dehydration. My dark circles are always massively reduced when I keep myself hydrated. So drink plenty of water and see how you go. Remember: coffee, alcohol and salty foods are brilliant at dehydrating your body!

6: Heart - The first thing to check for this area is your makeup and brushes. This area is full of dilated pores, so check that your brushes are cleaned at least once a week and that your makeup is in date. If this doesn't help it could be down to high blood pressure - try to replace "bad fats" with "good fats: oily fish, nuts, avocados and flax seed are all "good fats" that should be combined with a balanced diet. Check your vitamin B levels and try to get more fresh air. If this doesn't help then you might want to consult your doctor.

Zone 9 & 10: Respiratory system - This is a problem area for smokers or people with allergies, but if neither of these apply to you then make sure you don't let your body overheat, cut down your sugar intake and get more fresh air. Diet-wise green veggies might help you out, as well as keeping your pillow cases clean!

Zone 11 & 12: Hormones - This zone is a major indicator of stress and hormonal changes. Unfortunately there isn't a massive amount you can do about this (damn being a girl!) but a healthy diet with lots of exercise and a good cleansing routine won't hurt!

Zone 13: StomachI don't know about you, but my stomach works super hard to cope with the crap I ask it to deal with, if I have spots in this area a good green tea and high fibre diet normally helps to set everything straight again.

14: Illness - Spots here can indicate that your body is trying to fight off bacteria. Take it easy and drink plenty of water and give your body some time to relax.

Basically, if in doubt, make sure you're eating a healthy balanced diet, exercise regularly, drink lots of water and no smoking. I try to live by those rules (okay not so much on the exercise front - but I'm working on it!) as there's nothing better than waking up spot free. But we can't all be angels all the time, so next week I'll be popping up my go to products to breakouts... Keep your eyes peeled folks!

Special thanks to The Beauty Gypsy for her post of face mapping - without her I'd still have a zit ridden forehead!
