A tool that is used in some facial procedures is Chinese Facial Diagnosis. Diagnosis of internal problems by analyzing areas of the face has been around for a long time for the Chinese and is very accurate.
Congestion, discoloration and other skin problems in certain areas of the face can be good indicators of problems with internal organs and systems.
The forehead, from top to bottom, is an indicator of the health of the bladder, the large intestine and the small intestine. Lines in this area can indicate an imbalance in one of these organs. Acne can mean digestive congestion and poor detoxification. Red, flaky skin can be a sign of dehydration in the digestive tract.
The area between the eyes is associated with the liver. Redness in this area indicates poor liver detoxification and possible heavy metal toxicity. Vertical lines between the eyes can be a sign of liver imbalance.
The under eye area can tell us about our kidneys. If puffiness exists with a blue tinge under the eyes this indicates water retention in the kidney area. If puffiness exists with yellow tinged skin, then there is a good chance of mucus retention in the kidney area.
The tip of the nose is indicative of the lungs and the bridge relates to the stomach. Blackheads on the nose can indicate poor stomach digestion. A red nose or broken capillaries on the nose can be a result of excessive consumption of alcohol, coffee or tea.
The cheeks can tell us about our respiratory and circulatory systems. Congestion in the form of pimples can indicate a diet high in fat, causing excess mucus to form in the body. The color of the cheeks can also tell us about our insides. Pale cheeks can be a result of low levels of iron. Red cheeks can be indicative of poor circulation, consumption of too much alcohol, coffee and/or spices and poor elimination. A greenish tint in the cheeks is an indicator of liver congestion.
The mouth can reveal digestive issues. If the lips are white or very pale this can be a result of low iron and poor circulation. If lips are dry and flaky this indicates dehydration. Cracks and sores in the corners of the mouth show either low iron levels or low levels of b vitamins.
The chin area relates to the kidneys and digestive system. Congestion in this area indicates a diet high in sugars, fat and highly processed foods. This can also relate to unbalanced kidney function.
Blemishes in the jaw area can be hormonal. Cysts in this area can be linked to lymphatic toxicity.
