FACE MAPPING Find the Cause of Your Breakouts

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), the face can be separated into different zones which are connected to certain organs. This can help you identify the cause of your breakouts, based on where they appear.

Face Mapping divides the face into 7 zones:

If you are getting lots of pimples on the forehead, it may indicate certain problems with your liver or gall bladder. However, they can also be a result of permanent stress.

For Blemish-Prone Skin

Proper facial cleansing

The first step to blemish-free skin is proper cleansing. If your skin is prone to breakouts, it is especially important to remove all traces of make-up and sebum buildup. Our moisturizing cleansing milk is ideal for dry skin with blemishes. If you have oily, blemish-prone skin, you should opt for a refreshing cleansing gel. The second step is to clarify the skin with an alcohol-free anti-pimple tonic

How to exfoliate acne-prone skin

Regular exfoliation is the key to a smooth complexion and it preps the skin for other products like masks or moisturizers to be easily absorbed. If you have acne or inflamed pimples, you should avoid using face scrubs with granules, however, as that can spread the infection. Enzyme Peelings or AHA Peelings are ideal to gently remove dead skin cells without irritating the skin.

Anti-pimple face creams

There are countless moisturizers for blemish-prone skin out there. A good anti-pimple cream aims to clear breakouts and blemishes, but it also needs to address the individual needs of your skin type. If you have dry, blemish-prone skin, you need a cream with moisturizing properties. Your cream for oily, blemish-prone skin ideally provides a mattifying effect, without over-drying the skin. If you are starting to notice the first signs of lines and wrinkles, we recommend an anti-aging cream for blemish-prone skin
