Acne and you body

Were you aware that your acne actually tells you signs on what you're lacking in your body and potential health issues? I know I wasn't and I have struggled with acne most of my life. People always say to me, well I don't see your bad skin but that's because I'm very deliberate in how I pro-actively work to improve me skin. I guess it's remnants of me hitting puberty extremely early and trying everything imaginable to defeat the horrible acne that took over my face. My mother always said "Oh it's normal and it will pass" but it never really passed completely so she was wrong about that one.  

My story actually started well before middle school. I don't know why puberty hit me so early but I was an early bloomer and around 5th grade I started noticing all types of changes and acne was the major one that just never seemed to leave. Well I guess my breast never left either but I'm glad they stayed (LOL). Anyway... I've dealt with acne since and I've combated it with everything imaginable and the one true thing that has been successful has always been natural remedies. 

Ironically sun helps me out the most! I've read that if you're vitamin D deficient then this can cause acne and it's very true with me. I actually stumbled upon this resolution a few years ago when I was spending a lot of time in the sun at the beach and noticed that my acne had disappeared and my acne scars were clearing too. It was around the same time that I started drinking tons of water due to an increase in exercise and the combination of the two all but eliminated my acne. It was amazing and completely free after spending too much money seeing dermatologist who tried to sell me products. I went to a well known doctor too who has been featured in tons of magazines and she totally ripped me off by increasing my bill with stuff I didn't need and I guess she received incentives for products she sold because she tried to sell me everything! 

This led me to the face map which pretty much tells you what's going on in your body. It's actually quite accurate and again it's completely free. No need to see a doctor and spend money when all you really need to do is to listen to what your body is telling you and no doctor alive is more familiar with your body than you. Get out your mirrors and look at you skin. It can save you money and make you healthier in the long run. 

1: Kidneys — The skin around your eyes are directly linked to the health of your kidneys. If the kidneys are not getting enough water then they are not functioning optimally. Eat less processed or junk food, reduce the amount of fat in your diet, step up water intake because you’re dehydrated. Dehydration also leads to under eye circles.

2: Liver — Cut out the alcohol, greasy food and dairy. This is the zone where food allergies also show up first, so take a look at your ingredients. Pay close attention to your alcohol intake because you may be consuming too much and it’s showing up on your T-zone.  Besides all this, do 30 minutes of light exercise every day and get adequate sleep so your liver can rest.
Also your nose is linked to your heart. Any swelling can be a sign of high blood pressure and it may even be caused by to many energy drinks which get the heart racing. It may be time to cut back.
3: Respiratory  — This area is broken into two separate zones. Break outs on upper cheeks can be due to bacteria from your cell phone or dirty surfaces such as pillows which haven’t been washed. Also a hot spot for allergens so cut down on sugar and go for a brisk walk getting fresh air.
Lower cheek area is due to dental hygiene health. Floss and improve your oral health. It may be time to see a dental hygienist for a gum cleansing.

4: Digestion  — Another part of your T-zone. Again drink lots of water and cut back on your caffeine. Try green tea instead.   
5: Stomach and small intestine — Check your blood pressure (mine was slightly high) and Vitamin B levels. Decrease the intake of spicy or pungent food, cut down on meat and dairy. Look into ways to lower cholesterol, like replacing “bad fats” with “good fats” such as Omegas 3 and 6 found in nuts, avocados, fish and flax seed. Also, since this area is chock-full of dilated pores, check that your makeup is not past its expiry date or is skin-clogging.
Hormonal changes also tend to show up around the mouth area — This is the signature zone for stress hormone fluctuation. And while both are sometimes unavoidable, you can decrease their effect by getting adequate sleep, drinking enough water, eating leafy veggies and increasing your vitamin and mineral intake. Another interesting point: breakouts in this area indicate when you are ovulating (and on which side).
