The Connection Between Forehead Breakouts and Digestion

The Connection Between Forehead Breakouts and Digestion


Face mapping, a practice rooted in traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, assigns different areas of the face to specific organs or systems in the body. The forehead, forming part of the infamous "T-zone," tends to be a hotspot for breakouts and congestion. While external factors like skincare habits and environmental pollutants play an important role, internal factors, particularly digestive health, hold considerable sway.


The Digestive Connection:

Digestive concerns, ranging from poor gut health to dietary imbalances or food intolerances, can manifest on our skin. Digestive disturbances trigger inflammation and hormonal imbalances, which can then trigger acne and/or congestion.


Balanced Approach to Diet:

We believe in balance, not restriction. Being mindful of refined sugars, which can exacerbate skin issues, is important. Maintaining a balanced diet with fruits, veggies, lean proteins and whole grains supports digestive health and prevents breakouts. Hydration and probiotic-rich foods also promote gut health, reducing skin inflammation.


The Liver Connection: Listening to Your "Third Eye"

Did you know that the area between the eyebrows, known as the "third eye" or "liver area" in traditional Chinese medicine, can reflect liver health? Breakouts or redness in this region may indicate liver congestion or sluggish function. Factors like excessive alcohol, poor diet and toxins can play a role in the health of your liver. 


Incorporating Lifestyle Factors:

Addressing lifestyle factors such as diet, hydration, stress management and sleep can also play a significant role in managing breakouts on the forehead. Sleep especially is crucial, as it allows the body to undergo essential processes of repair, regeneration and detoxification, including the elimination of toxins from the liver.

In addition to lifestyle adjustments, incorporating OIL CLEANSING into your skincare routine can be so beneficial for balancing oil levels and minimising forehead breakouts. Oil cleansing helps to dissolve excess sebum, dirt and impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oils, thereby reducing the risk of pore congestion and acne flare-ups.


By understanding the connection between forehead breakouts and digestion, as well as the insights provided by face mapping, we can take proactive steps towards improving our skin health and overall well-being. Remember, balance is key – both in SKINCARE and in life.
