Ancient Chinese healers didn’t rely on sophisticated machines to detect diseases – in fact, they learned how to read the face and recognise the signs of almost any condition.
Although it has been lost at some point throughout history, face mapping was an important tool for detection of numerous health problems in ancient times.
Face mapping is a technique which relies on the position of problem skin on the face to detect health problems in the body. It’s a safe and non-invasive method that can identify diseases and help you treat them accordingly.
The technique works on the premise that all organs are interconnected in the body, and that a thorough look at the face can help the doctor diagnose anything.

The face can show any kind of problem you might be facing. Here’s what the location of the skin irritation or problem signifies:
Skin problems on the cheeks
- Touching your face frequently
- Bacterial buildup
Skin problems on the T-zone
- Alcohol abuse
- Too much coffee
- Poor circulation
Skin problems on the chin, jaw or neckline
- Excessive consumption of starch
- Candida infection
- Hormonal problems
- Excessive consumption of processed sugar
Face mapping by organ
Although this list is helpful for determining the broad causes for skin problems, their exact location is the better way of detecting a disease. Locate the specific organ related to a specific zone on your face and you will easily discover what you’re suffering from.
Liver – the area between the eyebrows
If you consume a lot of meat, the stomach will work overtime to digest it. This will leave the organ without rest and overworked, which will result in skin problems. In order to resolve the problem, start eating a healthy diet focused on raw fruit and vegetables, and make sure to spend more time outside in the fresh air as well.
Bladder and small intestine – forehead
If you have skin problems on your forehead, you’re probably consuming far too much processed and fatty food as well as foods low in fiber. Alcohol abuse and stress can also be the reason which leads to poor digestion, toxic buildup and dehydration. To resolve the problem, you need to drink 9-12 glasses of water every day and stay away from alcohol and processed food.
Kidneys – eye area and eyebrows
Skin problems on this part of the face are probably caused by malnutrition and dehydration. Alcohol abuse, smoking, poor circulation and weakened heart can also be the cause. The solution is to avoid caffeine and alcohol and drink plenty of water every day.
Kidneys and lungs – cheeks
Poor dental hygiene is the most frequent reason for skin problems on the cheeks. In order to treat the problem, floss and brush your teeth regularly, and avoid foods and drinks rich in sugar.
Lungs – upper part of the cheeks
Skin problems on the upper part of the cheeks is a sign of increased air pollution. Avoid going outside when the air is polluted and stop smoking as soon as possible to improve your condition.
Heart – nose
The nose is directly related to the heart – if you suffer with skin problems on it, avoid consuming too much salt, eat a healthier diet and start exercising more often.
Stomach – mouth and chin
Skin problems on the mouth and chin are usually caused by alcohol abuse and consumption of fatty and sugary foods. Avoid consuming these foods and add some fermented foods in your diet to treat the problem.
Hormones – neck and jaw
Problem skin on these areas is usually caused by hormonal imbalance. In order to regulate your hormones, control your salt and caffeine intake and eat a healthy diet.
