Face Mapping

I saw this on Pinterest and LOVED the idea of it. I get asked all the time about the location of breakouts and what the cause could be. This chart says it all!



Zone 1 & 3: Bladder & Digestive System
Zone 2: Liver
Zone 4 & 10: Kidneys
Zone 5 & 9: Respiratory system
Zone 6 & 8: Kidneys
Zone 7: Heart
Zone 12: Stomach
Zone 11 & 13: Hormones
Zone 14: Illness 



(although these are general guidelines don't go convincing yourself that because you have a zit on your nose that you're about to have a heart attack. most of these issues can vastly improve with changes in diet and exercise.)

  • Go to bed early (10pm) and wake up early (6am). Even if you can't fall asleep. it's good to relax so your liver can rest and be ready for work the next day
  • Drink plenty of water
  • 20-30 minutes of light exercise every day, especially outdoors
