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 😊

The First Green Cosmeceutical Brand - Medik8 Skincare
Most skin is sensitive, it is just to what degree. A simple change of washing powder can demonstrate this. People of all ages and skin types can periodically suffer from sensitive skin, making them particularly susceptible to certain irritating cosmeceutical ingredients. In fact, those suffering from acne, rosacea or psoriasis usually have greater skin sensitivity, which can be exacerbated by some aggressive treatment products that they use.
Medik8 is a skin research company pioneering the cosmeceutical technology of providing products suitable for sensitive skin without compromising efficacy, so they may be used by everyone.
It is a myth that a product designed for sensitive skin would not be as effective just because it is less irritating.
It was previously incorrectly assumed that aggressive products causing significant inflammation gave the best results (the idea being that aggressive products provoke a healing response) but current opinion, based on the latest research, is that excessive inflammation can damage cells causing long term skin damage and perversely causing premature skin ageing. Medik8 has been, and continues to be researched and tested in a laboratory for best results. The part of the molecular structure of ingredients within Medik8 that could possibly irritate the skin, has been removed, therefore the resulting products are hydrating, repairing and healing to the skin.
Nik of Mojo Beauty highly recommends Medik8 skin care, uses it for every skin treatment and enjoys watching her clients skin improve after each facial treatment, especially micro dermal needling treatments.
