What’s your skin telling you?

Quite sometime since we had a ‘Health Files’ post in the blog..I chanced upon this particular post in Facebook.

I thought of sharing this with you all over the blog (where can always refer to later) than a lost re-share among the zillions of FB posts we see everyday!

What is your skin telling you? 

Blemishes/acne in the following areas of your face & neck could mean the following:
Zone 1 & 3: Bladder & Digestive System — Improve your diet and drink more water.Zone 2: Liver — Try cutting back on alcohol, heavy food or dairy. This area can also indicate a food allergy.

Zone 4 & 10: Kidneys — Make sure you’re keeping yourself hydrated with water and cut back on liquids that dehydrate you. This means nix the soda, coffee and/or alcohol.

Zone 5 & 9: Respiratory system — Those who smoke or have allergies tend to have acne here.

Zone 6 & 8: Kidneys — Dark circles are usually a result of dehydration. Drink up!

Zone 7: Heart — Check your blood pressure and make sure you’re not using makeup that irritates your skin.

Zone 12: Stomach — Consider a detox or adding more fiber to your diet to help with digestion.

Zone 11 & 13: Hormones — Stress and hormonal changes can sometimes be alleviated with more water and a few extra servings of dark, leafy greens but if breakouts in this area persistent, make an appointment with your doctor to look into a possible hormonal imbalance. Additionally, breakouts in this area also indicate when you are ovulating (and which side).

Zone 14: Illness — Can be a sign of your body fighting bacteria to avoid illness. Take a breather and drink plenty of fluids.

Isn’t our face the mirror of our emotions & general well-being after all?
The thumb rule is to take more water, fluids, fibre, raw fruits & veggies as part of our daily intake – to keep all these issues at bay!
