Why You Should Listen To Your Acne
Far from being a silent blight, acne and where it tends to crop up on your face could be an indicator of your inner health and those regular breakouts could be your acne’s way of trying to communicate with you silently.
Most acne sufferers have got a regular breakout spot or more than one regular problem area; the chin, cheeks, forehead and nose are the biggest offenders and if you listen to traditional therapists from China, you’d soon learn that each of these areas corresponds to another part of the body…usually an internal organ.
The cheeks for instance are split into two sections; upper and lower with the upper being linked to the lungs and the lower the teeth and the gums. If you have breakouts in these areas it’s time to look carefully at your dental hygiene and to stop smoking!
Other parts of the face which are linked clearly to internal organs are as follows.
This area is directly linked to the small intestine so if you breakout here then it’s possible that a better diet and more roughage could help you.
Breakouts here could indicate a hormonal imbalance and this is especially important for females to take note of.
Directly linked to digestion and hydration, the forehead is a good indicator for your health in general. If this is one of your problem areas then make sure you drink plenty of water and eat a varied diet.
This area is linked to your liver. Drinking too much alcohol or not getting enough water on a daily basis could both affect you in this area.
Try to take notice of your breakouts, where and when do they occur? Keeping a food diary and noting events you’ve taken part in can also help to isolate the causes of your breakouts.
For treating acne breakouts which have already taken hold, it is a good idea to look into some of the newer treatments for acne prone skin such as anti acne peels which are suitable even for skin which is very acne prone. Anti acne peels use Beta Hydroxy Acids and Alpha Hydroxy Acids to help your skin’s ability to heal and become smoother. In addition to Anti Acne Peels, there is IPL Photorejuvenation treatments to consider. IPL is short for Intense Pulsed Light and it is the pulses of laser light which help acne sufferers get rid of even pitted scarring caused by old breakouts.
Don’t suffer in silence…listen to your acne, take note of it’s patterns and above all seek the help that is out there!
