For thousands of years, traditional healers have been practicing Chinese face mapping to detect and diagnose all kinds of diseases. Facial skin is sensitive and can reflect internal changes faster than other parts of the body.
Face mapping, especially the location of your acne or skin breakouts, has been a tried and tested method of diagnosing health ailments. As an ancient practice rooted in Ayurvedic teachings, face mapping has been celebrated as a noninvasive method of treating multiple maladies and conditions.
This practice rests on the belief that your skin’s health (especially on your face) is directly connected to an organ of your body. In other words, looking at your exterior is the key to identifying internal organ health.
From smoking to hormonal imbalances, your face may be trying to tell you something! Externally-induced health issues, such as stress, can lead to acne flare up on your skin. Nearly all of these conditions or substances are within your power!
