Last updated on April 24th, 2024 at 05:30 pm

Do you find that when you have an acne breakout, it’s typically in the same location on your face? If so, this post about acne face mapping will help you get to the bottom of why and what you should do to put an end to the madness.

My Twitter friend Melina over at Diva Goes Green (blog no longer published) wrote a post quite a while ago about how to figure out what the pimples on your face mean with respect to being symptomatic of what’s going on inside of your body. It’s an excellent article about the causes of acne so I’m housing it here.

It’s normal for everyone to once in a while have break outs around her/his face. But if this situation continues and it just wont go away, maybe its time for you to get introduced to “Mien Shiang” which is called face mapping / reading. This is an old Chinese method to find out whats wrong with your body or what you are lacking nutritionally which is leading your face to break out.

You Are What you Eat

As I’ve always said, beauty is skin deep! What you eat, is what you’ll feel and look like. Everything is related to one another. If you eat food that is unhealthy for you or which is pasteurized and do not exercise, you will notice the changes in your skin going from good to bad. It’s never too late to change the eating habits you obtain and make a decision to eat healthy fresh food and exercise to keep your self and your mind healthy.

So, next time you’re checking your self out in the mirror and see break outs on your face, realize that there is something going on in your internal system and in your internal organs. The good thing about this, is that you skin will tell you whats wrong with your organs before they turn into a more serious problem if not taken care of.

Identifying Acne on Sections of the Face

This is where acne face mapping / reading comes to picture, to determine what each pimple and break out means, symptom wise, in your body. So, let’s go through what each part of your face means if you get pimples around that area.


Internal symptoms = liver & gallbladder. This can mean that you are eating foods that are too greasy or that you have been drinking too much alcohol. Lay off the greasy and pasteurized foods and start detoxing your body by drinking lemon water everyday. One lemon squeezed in a glass of water will do. (and, here I thought it was because of my hair!)

Third Eye

Internal symptoms = liver & stomach. This usually means your body has been building up toxic. You should start drinking my beautifying green smoothie. This will detox your liver and keep your stomach healthy.

Brow Temples

Internal symptoms = kidneys. You might be straining your kidney. You should drink a lot of water, to cleanse your liver and eat more greens. This you can do is by drinking my green smoothie.

Under Eye Area

Internal symptoms = stomach, kidneys & liver. If you seem to be having a constant problem of dark circles under your eyes or puffiness, you should stop eating a lot of bananas daily and limit it to 1. Also drink tea that detoxify your internal system.

Bridge of Nose

Internal symptoms: heart. Check into eating more nuts, seeds, fruits & vegetables that have good fats in them. Omega 3 & 6 (balanced)!

Upper Cheeks

Internal symptoms: heart. This is also as the bridge of the nose. Eat your Omega 3 & 6.

Mid Cheeks

Internal symptoms: stomach & lungs. This might mean you are having possible allergies to foods, such like wheat and dairy. Cut it out completely from your diet. Humans don’t need to eat dairy or wheat. Add more green veggies.

Mouth Area

Internal symptoms: stomach & intestines. Once again your body has been building up too much toxic. This may have been affected by food allergies. You need to cleanse, detox and alkaline your body.

Lower Cheeks

Internal symptoms: liver & stomach. This again means your body is toxic. This means you need to detoxify your body and make it more alkaline.

Jaw Line

Internal symptoms: colon & ovaries. This can be triggered by stress and hormonal changes. Whilst on your period, drink a lot of green smoothies; keep your self extremely hydrated.

Lymph Nodes

Mental symptoms: stress. Internal symptoms: bacteria. If your body has been invaded by bacteria, this is a sign your lymph nodes will give, which means they are trying to get rid of the invasion. Do yoga and meditate.

Well, this is very enlightening. as of the sharing of this post, I rarely have a break out anymore. When I do, it’s always when I get Aunt Flo and it’s always on my lower jaw area. After checking out this acne face map, it totally makes sense. My body is undergoing hormonal changes

UPDATE: I’ve undergone menopause and now I rarely get an outbreak.

How about you? After looking at the Map, can you do some Acne Face Mapping to identify any challenges your body is facing? Share it in the comments below.
