Acne Face Map: What Are Your Breakouts Telling You?
Breakouts are a bummer. We all know the feeling of spotting an angry zit on an otherwise flawless complexion. Before you raise your fists to the sky & desperately demand “Why me?!” take a breath. There is more to breakouts than meets the eye - & where they appear on your face can be the key to stopping them for good. Here is your guide to using a face map to decode what your breakouts are telling you.
Forehead: Unhealthy Eating & Stress
Unhealthy eating & stress are probable offenders. In face mapping, your forehead is linked to your digestive and nervous systems, making it susceptible to diet- & stress-related breakouts.
Those pesky pimples can be alleviated by eating less sugar & fewer processed foods, drinking plenty of water & getting between 7 to 9 hours of sleep. The oils & chemicals in shampoo & makeup residue can accumulate on the skin’s surface, sinking into & clogging pores. Double cleanse. To properly purge your pores, remove makeup with Medik8 Surface Radiance Cleanse then moisturise with Medik8 Balance Moisturiser empowered with pre and probiotics. This method will help ensure that you remove every last bit of residue from your skin's pores and then hydrate it to find its natural pH.
Cheeks: Cell Phone & Pillowcase
If spots are showing up on your cheeks, your cell phone & pillowcase may be to blame. Your phone accumulates plenty of bad-for-your-skin bacteria during the day, and wiping it down is a must - even if it looks clean. Dirt & oil transfer to your skin, clogging pores & causing blemishes. Clean pillowcases every two to three days to keep them clean.
Pillowcases can cause “acne mechanica” - a type of acne that is the result of materials touching your face.
Chin & Jaw: Hormones
Excessive hormones due to menstruation, pregnancy & increased androgen levels. These fluctuations result in inflammation, excessive oil production, clogged skin cells & bacteria production. Eliminate dairy & add probiotics to your diet to calm inflammation & limit your intake of pimple-producing hormones 😊
