How Acne and Body Health Are Connected
The Art and Science of Face Mapping
The eyes may be the window to the soul, but did you know that the face is the window to the rest of your body? According to the ancient Ayurvedic art of face mapping, areas of your face are fundamentally connected to parts of your body. By analyzing which parts of your face are most prone to acne breakouts, face mapping experts can look for clues into the state of your internal health.
The art and science of face mapping stretch back over many thousands of years. Ancient Ayurvedic practitioners in India used this technique to gain insights into diseases and disorders that affected people long before modern diagnostic techniques, such as MRI machines and X-rays, could allow doctors to peer inside the body. The term Ayurveda means "science of life," and the practice is believed to be around 5,000 years old.
If you choose to use face mapping to get an insight into your health, you may wonder what will happen during the session. First, rest assured that there is no need to worry about discomfort or side effects; face mapping is an entirely non-invasive process. Face mapping experts simply need to examine your skin in the various zones of the face, including the classic "T-zone" that is prone to oiliness in many people, as well as the cheeks, the forehead, the chin and the skin around the eyes. They analyze the locations of acne breakouts to determine which organs may be suffering health problems.
Face mapping can give you a unique insight into the delicate balance that connects the skin of your face to your overall health. You may come away from a face mapping consultation with a better understanding of how your skin type varies across your face, as well as an indication of which organs in your body are connected to your acne breakouts. This may help you when choosing products to care for your skin and your health as a whole.
