Many times while on Pinterest I come across Face Maps that say something like “Face mapping – What your acne is trying to tell you” or “Chinese Face Mapping – What your acne means”. Basically, it’s an outline of a face which tells you what pimples on various parts of your face mean.
So pimples between eyes mean that maybe your liver is not functioning well. On your cheeks may mean respiratory or metabolism issues. Acne on the jawline and chin means your acne is hormonal. Basically, the whole face is mapped out and linked to various body parts and function.
The funny part is no 2 face maps are identical. One might say that acne or pimples between the eyes means your liver is not functioning properly. Another might say it is your stomach. Another says that pimples under the eyes means that your stomach, liver and kidneys are not functioning well. Not sure how the person reading it is supposed to make sense of which organ is not working well.
Another one says that acne on your nose means there is an issue with your heart. Under heart it says this is caused by indigestion and bloating. So you see what I mean about how confusing it all is. I mean if someone having acne were to take these maps seriously they would get really upset.
These maps tend to be shared a lot. I am absolutely sure most of them are shared by people who do not have acne. These people, of course, are trying to be helpful and hope that it helps someone who actually has acne. As someone who has had acne on every single part of my face I can testify that if these face maps were true, my health should have been in serious jeopardy. But in all honesty, my physical health was great. Just that I was not mentally as great as I was battling acne. Acne takes a toll more on a person’s mental health than physical.
Let me tell you something. If you kidney or liver or whatever were not functioning properly, acne would be the least of your troubles. Trust me you would not care about your acne as your health would have been in serious trouble and you would know it. You would not need a face map to tell you about it.
While doing some reading up, as research for this post I came across one article about face maps that said if you have acne between your eyes you should cut down on junk food. I mean, really? Come on now!!!! Everyone, acne or no acne, should be cutting down on junk food. And the sad truth is some people with acne may not even eat junk food.
Now I did a little googling and found one article that promised you the ultimate guide to face maps for acne. Well, that was going to be interesting. I read it. First off. It was confusing. Too much information and that too very confusing information. I do not have acne today, so understanding it was not a big deal. But I can imagine that if I had read this same article in the days I had acne, by the time I had reached the end of the article I would have been depressed and confused.
Acne articles are supposed to give a person hope and maybe one thing they can do that would put them on the path to clear skin. This article did just the opposite. Then I read the comments. I like to read everything and see what people are saying. One comment asked the author for sources. The author replied back saying the article had the links. So back I went to the article to try and find the links. There were none. I came back to the comments. The person who commented said the same thing I had just found out, that there were no links. The author now replies that the links have been lost. How very convenient!! Of course, there are no links when you have made up face maps ( which are nonsense ) and drawn them yourself with ideas you have pulled out of your ass!!
The article also suggested that for some issue you get a colonic. If you don’t know what a colonic is, go google it but only if you have a strong stomach. And don’t google it while eating. You have been warned!
Now for obvious reasons, I am not going to link the article in my post, but if you want to read it, please comment below and I will send it to you by email.
If anyone with acne is on the internet trying to find a cure and comes across these face maps, they are going to think that they have a problem with every part of their body. How do you resolve a liver or a metabolism problem or a spleen issue?
Don’t let these face maps fool you into thinking that certain parts of your body are not functioning well. Some even go to the extent of saying that acne on a certain part of your face could be an impaired kidney function which is outright and plain ridiculous.
The reason you get acne on your face is that the concentration of oil glands on your face is much higher.
Plain and simple. It is not because your kidney or spleen is not functioning properly.
So pay no heed to these face maps. They don’t mean anything. They are also not helpful as they never tell you what to do about a problem.
Want to get rid of your acne. Here is what you can do.
