Why do you break out in some areas and not others?

Each area reflects a different part of your internal health, so what exactly do pimples on certain areas mean? With this “map” as your guide, you can address the underlying causes of blemishes and correctly determine how to prevent them from recurring.

Area 1 & 3: Bladder & Digestive System

Breaking out on your forehead may be a direct reflection of what’s going on in your small intestine. High amounts of fat within your diet can lead you to breakout across your forehead. Cleanse your diet with antioxidant-rich green tea and up your water intake to clear this area.

Area 2: Liver

If you break out near/the middle of your eyebrows, it is because you’re stressing your liver. The liver breaks down fats, so you may be in-taking the wrong food. Alcohol and dairy are said to be the main causes for acea in this area. This is also an area that indicates food allergies – consult your doctor for more information.

Area 4, 6, 8 & 10: Kidneys 

Spots close to your ear and even dark circles around the eyes can be caused by dehydration. Make sure you keep well hydrated throughout the day by drinking, at least, eight glasses of water. Also, avoid salt and coffee.

The ears are also know to be associated with the kidneys. Breaking out here may signal dehydration. Make sure to drink more water and avoid excess salt.

Area 5 & 9: Respiratory system 

Those who smoke or have allergies tend to have acne here. But, if you are breaking out a quarter-inch from the sides of your nose, this may reflect what’s going on in your stomach. If you’re constantly eating the wrong foods, not chewing thoroughly eating too quickly, or eating late at night, you’re skin may be breaking out as if to say, “Stop feeding my stomach this way!”

Area 7: Heart

Check your blood pressure and make sure you’re not using makeup that irritates your sensitive redhead skin.

Area 12: Stomach 

Consider a detox or adding more fiber to your diet to help with digestion.

Area 11 & 13: Hormones 

Stress and hormonal changes can sometimes be alleviated with more water and a few extra servings of dark, leafy greens. Additionally, breakouts in this area also indicate when you are ovulating.

Use these tips and easily change the way your body reacts to certain circumstances! Rock it like a Redhead!
