K Beauty Tips: How To Face MapPosted on 08/08/2019
Do you sometimes feel like your solid skincare routine or spot treatments just don’t cut it when it comes to treating or preventing acne? The Korean skincare philosophy is all about treating the root cause of skin concerns as well as providing preventative care. However, we often neglect to figure out what factors may actually trigger our acne. Enter: Face Mapping. This ancient Chinese and Ayurvedic technique takes on a more holistic approach to diagnosing the triggers for your acne. The belief is that certain parts of your face are connected to specific areas of your body and thus, your face reflects your internal organ system. If you’re wondering why those pesky pimples keep popping up in the same spot, or if you know your triggers and are curious to see the accuracy, learn how to read your skin with our How To Face Map Guide below!
Our guide shows you the parts of your face that link to your internal organs, and the potential triggers that may be causing your acne. There are also some tips on how to better treat and prevent acne breakouts. Pay close attention next time you see acne appearing on your face. Is it time to wash your pillow case again (cheeks)? Did you have Maccas on the way home from a night of drinking (in between eyes / forehead)? Or maybe it’s that time of the month again (chin). Certain lifestyle changes can help prevent acne from showing up on your face as well as improve your overall health and wellness. Generally speaking, some great ways to start working towards clearer skin are:
- Having a healthy and balanced diet (no need to cut out greasy / spicy food completely! Everything in moderation)
- Exercising regularly
- Sleeping 7-8 hours a night
And of course, don’t forget to stay consistent with your skincare routine too!
