We’re going to come right out and say it: breakouts seriously suck. They often come at the worst times, like before a job interview or big event, and seemingly for no reason at all. Or at least that’s what we used to think until we learned about face mapping. Have you heard about it?
With roots in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine, the practice of face mapping isn’t exactly new, but it has been picking up traction in recent years thanks to the clean beauty movement. To understand how face mapping works, you’ve got to take the term literally—think of your face as a map divided into zones, with each zone corresponding to an internal organ or organ system. When blemishes occur, that’s your skin’s way of signaling that something below the surface is off balance. Face mapping makes it easy to figure out the why behind your breakouts.
