Many times while on Pinterest I come across Face Maps that say something like “What your acne is trying to tell you”. 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. Basically, the whole face is mapped out and linked to various body parts and function.
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.
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 are not helpful as they never tell you what to do about a problem.
