Acne Face Mapping - What does Your Acne Tell YOU?

Face Mapping Guidelines to Treat Spots & Problem Skin

According to many reflexologists and Chinese medicine practitioners, spots and pimples on your face map out internal health problems. Understanding what causes spots and breakouts, is the key to finding the most effective solution.

The human body is a fascinating and complex wonder. Every single cell or atom the body consists of, has a specific function with a calculated purpose. When something is not functioning correctly, your body tells you exactly what is wrong, you just need to know how to understand the language.

When a virus enters your system, you feel sick. When you've been in the sun for too long, freckles appear on your nose. Therefore, why would spots and pimples be any different and just appear at random? It's your body's way of telling you something is wrong.

To treat your problem skin, you need to fix the internal problems first. Not all pimples are because of health issues, sometimes they can form due to clogged pores caused by makeup or other factors, therefore you also need a good facial cleanser to clean the skin of those impurities.

The following solutions are guidelines to treat internal problems, based on the location of spots and pimples;
