FACE MAPPING


 

face mapping

 

Face mapping is traced back to ancient medicinal practices as a way to diagnose and assess an individual's wellbeing. Today, the same principle goes as follows- the function of your internal health including the immune system, digestive system, gut health, respiratory system, nervous system, excretory system and endocrine system - all are reflected on the different zones of the face. Breakouts, dullness and lackluster may emulate a malfunction in one of the areas listed below. 

Forehead: Digestive Organs and Liver 

Could Indicate:

  • Stress
  • Food allergies and sensitivities
  • Environmental toxins and stress
  • Dehydration

How to combat these issues:

Stress can lead to premature wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone, puffy eyes, dark circles and hair loss. For most of us a bit of stress is inevitable and even unavoidable, so it’s important we have tools to help us course-correct. Meditation, movement, acupressure, journaling, a good laugh and a soothing bath are some of our favorite ways to both prevent and recover from stressful situations.

Blemishes in the area may be a sign of slow digestion or food sensitivities. We recommend lots of water, fiber, and leafy greens. Reducing or eliminating refined sugar, including alcohol should also help significantly. Are you eating healthy and still breaking out? You may have a food sensitivity. Taking note of what makes you feel unwell (and unwell) can be really helpful. We love The Well Journal, care of our dear friend, nutritionist and chef Mia Rigden, here pictured.

Using PURIFY and SCRUB will also help keep pores clear, clean and thriving. You may also like to switch up your hair care products or wash your hair more frequently.


Under Eyes: Kidney and Liver

Could Indicate:

  • High Stress
  • Lack of Sleep
  • Compromised Adrenal Glands  
  • Poor Diet

How to combat these issues:

Low stress and sufficient sleep are vital to a healthy functioning mind and body. Get plenty of sleep and try to clear your mind for a more restful night to combat dark circles. A healthy gut is a happy gut, so make sure to get plenty of antioxidants and check in on your iron intake.

Give yourself a lymphatic eye massage with our RENEW serum and REPAIR face oil - both which are known to reduce inflammation and strengthen capillaries.

 

Cheeks: Respiratory System, Stomach and Colon

Could Indicate:

  • Lack of nutrient absorption 
  • Bad eating schedule 
  • Metabolism issues
  • Lung problems

How to combat these issues:

Keep the colon healthy by increasing your fiber, vegetable and whole grain intake. Many adults have problems digesting dairy, so consider eliminating or cutting down on cheese, yogurt or milk from your diet. Go outside and enjoy the fresh air. Exercising regularly helps to strengthen the heart and improve oxygen flow. 

This area can also be associated with environmental pollutants so keep your skin clean with PURIFY and protect the skin from pollutants with REFRESH mineral mist and RENEW face serum. Changing pillow cases and cleaning cell phones can also help mitigate blemishes along the cheeks.


Chin and Jawline: Stomach, Kidney and Reproductive Organs

Could Indicate:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Dietary issues 

How to combat these issues:

Those with hormonal imbalances often find themselves experiencing breakouts on the chin and jawline. Changes in hormones can be a natural occurrence from puberty, pregnancy or menopause. It is important to be aware though that bad breakouts can occur from certain reproductive issues such as endometriosis and PCOS. Always stay up to date with your doctor on symptoms that may relate to such conditions. This is also the stomach channel, so at the risk of sounding like a broken record we'll say once more, be mindful of what you eat. A high in sugar diet causes breakouts on the chin and jawline area so cut back on sugar and processed foods for a smoother, brighter complexion. 

Fortunately all LINNÉ products can help clear pores, prevent and treat blemishes, restore and maintain hydration, and bring radiance back to skin, head to toe. Feel free to reach out via our contact form should you like a complimentary consultation to help determine the best products and lifestyle hacks for you.
