Skin-care: Face Mapping

When my face first started acting up, I used to think my breakouts were caused by a hormonal imbalance. With time I discovered that this wasn’t entirely true. Breakouts can be caused by any number of factors from a hormonal imbalance to a lack of sleep and dietary factors.

What is face mapping?
Over the last month or so, I have been paying close attention to my face because I noticed a lot of breakouts that my daily routine didn’t seem to be managing very well (you can read about how I care for my face here). I noticed that my forehead had a lot of pimples which at some point made that area of my face quite sore. I also developed a pimple on my nose that wouldn’t go away and I had recurring pimples on my cheeks. From time to time, I would develop a pimple on my chin.
Armed with this information, I decided to find out why I was unable to get rid of these pimples as easily as I used to. That is when I started looking into face mapping so I could better determine how to treat and avoid more repeat acne.

Face mapping is an ancient Chinese medicinal method of determining what the underlying cause of flare-ups or break outs on your face could be.
