According to Chinese medicine, acne on particular parts of the face pose potential health problems of certain parts of the body.
The upper part of the forehead – digestion and bladder
Drink plenty of water, avoid fatty foods and refined sugar. If you crave fried, fatty food, eat an avocado. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables and look for foods rich in antioxidants and drink green tea, as well as warm water with lemon.
Ears – kidneys
When kidneys don’t get what they need, a large, painful pimple may appear on the ears that won’t pass. Kidney problems are often the result of lack of drinking water, introduction of too much sodium, coffee, alcohol, animal proteins and refined sugar, frequent delays of going to the bathroom and lack of sleep, and minerals such as magnesium.
Between the eyebrows – liver
Redness, patches, oily skin and pimples between the eyebrows may be signs that the liver is working more than it should and that it needs cleaning. In that case, the most important thing is to avoid fatty and dairy products. If the desire to eat late at night overtakes you, eat a spoonful of raw honey or drink a cup of green tea.
The upper part of the cheeks – the lungs and respiratory organs
In this case, it can also lead to varicose veins on the face. If you are not a smoker, a pimple on the upper part of the cheeks can be obtained due to asthma, allergies, pneumonia and impure air. It is best to avoid smoking as well as the company of smokers, i.e. smoky places.
The lower part of the cheeks – problems with gums and teeth
Avoid refined sugar and sweetened drinks, and eat fresh vegetables and fruits rich in fiber to strengthen your teeth and gums. Consume more natural, unprocessed foods.
Right or left side of the chin – hormones and genitals
Indicators of imbalanced hormones, and usually women have pimples on this part of the face. The menstrual cycle, birth control pills and stress, can cause an imbalance of hormones. Get enough sleep and do relaxation exercises such as yoga and meditation.
Consume healthy fatty acids such as omega-3 fatty acids.
The center of the chin – the small intestine and stomach
Stress, lack of sleep and dehydration can do damage to the appendix and stomach. Therefore, get enough sleep, drink plenty of water and relieve stress with yoga and meditation. As for the food, do not forget to take omega fatty acids.
