Here Is What Your Acne Tells About Your Health

We often try to treat acne by applying over-the-counter products but they give you temporary results. Sometimes your acne is trying to tell you internal health issues which we need to address right now. 

Our body always gives us signs that tell us about health. Acne is also one of the ways our body tells us what is going on – these blemishes on our body can indicate underlying health problems as well. We often try to treat acne by applying over-the-counter products but they give you temporary results. Sometimes your acne is trying to tell you internal health issues which we need to address right now. 

An old traditional practice known as face mapping is used to examine the acne and diagnose these health issues. 

Forehead 

The breakouts on the forehead are a result of stress and digestion problems. It could be a result of unhealthy eating, a bacterial infection and poor hygiene. Here are some things you can do to prevent forehead acne. 

  • Keep yourself hydrated all day long to keep the body away from toxins
  • Do not drink carbonated drinks 
  • Lower sugar intake  
  • Take a bath after you workout 

Cheeks 

Smoking, spicy food and extreme weather conditions are some of the leading causes of acne on the cheeks. Smoking can deprive the skin of all the oxygen. Acne near the top of the cheeks are also linked to the respiratory system, so make sure that air around you is clean, if not then put a mask to avoid the toxins from getting in your system. 

Sides of the Chin 

A hormonal imbalance is a reason behind this one. Acne on the sides of the chin can be caused by the menstrual cycle, menopause, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome and puberty. Other reasons that may contribute to a hormonal imbalance include lack of sleep, stress and bad eating habits. All of these problems can lead to an increase in oil production from our skin which can easily lead to these infections of the hair follicle under our skin. 

To alleviate such a problem, you must practice good hygiene, get plenty of sleep and avoid eating too many carbs. 

Under and Around the Eyes 

Pimples around your eyes are a result of clogged pores, increased fat in the bloodstream and excessive growth of sweat glands. Milia is also a form of acne which appears under the skin due to a decreased function of the kidneys. So, get yourself checked today to get a diagnosis done. Keep yourself dehydrated to keep away these eye bumps – this will also help someone with dark circles. 

Nose 

Various studies have shown that nose bleeds and heart attacks are correlated. The nose bumps are also associated with high blood pressure. Some of the things that can alleviate the risk of heart diseases such as folate, vitamin B6 and B12. 

Foods rich in folate include broccoli, cauliflower and spinach – all of these are great for your heart and also your skin. Also, avoid oily food which can also spread oil and bacteria on the nose and lead to breakouts.
