Have you heard about Chinese medicine and what is it about? Have you ever thought that you body finds a way to tell you what’s imbalanced within it? Let’s look at differences between East and West on forehead and between brows.
According to the traditional Chinese medicine each part of your face (forehead, nose, chin, right cheek, left cheek) is connected to the Chinese 5-Element network (fire, earth, water, metal, and wood) and it gives you a visual indication what may be going on in the organs of your body.
In some cases the visual signs your body gives you will alert you for the problem right away, but the biggest value of knowing and reading your body language is in acting preventative through herbal supplementation, diet and least but not last lifestyle practices.
Based on the 5-Element network forehead reflects the fire element. Examining your forehead and finding small blood vessels that appear as discoloration or redness could be a sign of a heart problem. Breakup or loss can also cause discoloration. It is not unusual for very emotional people to see a constant furrow between their eyebrows.
For thousands of years, face reading (or Mien Shiang) has been performed by Eastern medicine practitioners. Combine Western (analyzing the surface) with Eastern (what’s happening internally) techniques for a unique, interesting and fun way to look at the skin.
FOREHEAD (Digestive system & bladder) Breakouts => need to eliminate toxins. Solutions: try drinking more water and eating more unprocessed, natural foods. Dry, flaky skin above brows => lack of vegetables in diet or possibly too much wheat. Horizontal lines => represent a life lesson learned or experience gained.
BETWEEN BROWS (Liver) Breakouts or congestion => consuming too many rich, oily foods, dairy or alcohol (may indicate food allergy) => often called the “wine & dine” area since it’s linked to rich foods and late-night eating!
FOREHEAD Breakouts: Possible cause => hats, bangs, hair products, improper removal of hair products or face cleanser along hairline. Solutions: focus on deep cleansing and purifying the skin. Clear Anti-BlemishTreatment, Refining Clay Mask, Renew Serum are recommended for inflamed breakouts. Pigmentation & Lines. Possible cause => sun exposure, repetitive facial movements. Solutions: focus on tightening and brightening: Cyto-luxe collection, Triple Action Serum, SPF 40 Facial Moisturizer will greatly help improving your skin.
BETWEEN BROWS Breakouts or congestion => Improper hair removal techniques, not cleansing properly or exfoliating enough. Professional skin treatments and corrective home care products are needed.
