Acne Face-Mapping: What Are Your Breakouts Telling You?

Acne Face-Mapping: What Are Your Breakouts Telling You?

29/12/2021 Beauty Tips

Acne is a common skin condition that can be caused by many different factors. It can become difficult to determine if your acne is a result of stress, hormones, food or potentially all of these things. Sometimes, no one factor causes acne flare-ups.

Studies have shown that the facial area where you get breakouts can provide clues to what may be causing it. When there’s a bodily imbalance, it usually manifests on our skin through pimples, redness, or dryness. This technique is known as acne face-mapping, a practice that comes from ancient Chinese beliefs.

What are your breakouts revealing about your health?

For face mapping, you will need to tie your hair back and sit in the front of the mirror to examine your skin. Based on the part of your face that has the most concentrated acne clusters, you can find the root cause for your breakouts and treat your condition.

  • T-zone
    A common reason for breakouts in the T-zone is excessive oiliness compared to the rest of the areas due to the higher number of sebaceous glands lying underneath the skin’s surface.

    If your acne is more apparent on the forehead, along the hairline and temples, this can indicate dandruff or an improper haircare routine. Whereas if it is more prominent on the nose, dilated and unclean pores can be a significant cause for your breakout.

    According to face mapping, acne on your t-zone can be connected to unbalanced stomach, kidney or spleen. Whereas red bumps on the nose may be connected to your heart.

  • Cheeks

Poor respiratory health is a common result of cheek acne. Smokers or individuals suffering from allergies are more prone to breakout in this area. Cheek acne can also be triggered by lifestyle factors, such as holding the phone up to the cheek a lot, sleeping on unclean pillowcases or touching your face throughout the day. Redness and breakouts on the cheeks are also a common symptom of rosacea, which is a chronic inflammatory skin condition.

  • Jaw and chin

The jawline may be where individuals notice cystic and painful acne. They can also extend down to the neck and around the cheeks and chin. According to experts, acne on the chin and jawline is thought to be incited by hormones. The main hormones that trigger this type of acne include growth hormone, estrogens, progesterone, and androgens. It can also be an early sign of PCOS, indicating thyroid disturbance and insulin resistance.
