What is your acne telling you?

Remember Arizona Julie Theroux' saying?

"A person’s face is like an open book; you can read their entire personality profile."

Apparently, you can also find out what is wrong with your internal organs, just by looking at your pimples. Could this possibly be true? 

Here are two face maps for you to decide on.

Acne location and related possible problems: 

Location: Forehead
Possible problem: Heart and small intestine
Suggestion: Eat heat-dispelling foods such as lotus seeds soup to get rid of heat in the heart; have enough sleep, control your temper and maintain a good mood.

Location: Between the eyebrows
Possible problem: Heart
Suggestion: Avoid intense physical exercise and over-fatigue; maintain a good mood.

Location: Tail of brows
Possible problem: Gallbladder
Suggestion: Eat less greasy foods and have more heat-dispelling foods such as bitter cucumber.

Location: Nose
Possible problem: Stomach and digestive system
Suggestion: Eat less "hot" foods and more plain foods that can help dispel pathogenic heat such as green beans.

Location: Bridge of nose
Possible problem: Spinal column
Suggestion: Don't sit for too long; stretch your body often.

Location: Side of the nose wings and between the nose and mouth
Possible problem: Reproductive system
Suggestion: Check and treat the problem such as regulating menstrual period.

Location: Right cheek
Possible problem: Lungs and large intestine
Suggestion: Eat more foods that help nourish the lungs such as pear and white fungus; eat less seafood, tropical fruits and drink less alcohol.

Location: Left cheek
Possible problem: Liver and gallbladder
Suggestion: Eat less greasy foods and have more vegetables and fruit and have enough sleep.

Location: Corner of mouth
Possible problem: Intestines
Suggestion: Eat less "hot" foods and move bowels regularly.

Location: Chin
Possible problem: Kidney and internal secretion
Suggestion: Eat more plain foods than stimulating foods like spicy, fried or greasy ones. Take enough rest.

What Christine Says:

I usually have pimples on my t-zone area, indicating that I will/may have problems with my heart, kidney and liver. Although I already have lung and heart ailments. Coincidence much? ;)

Then again, it could contribute to my oily t-zone.

Whether this is true or not, it's always best to take good care of our body! Let us not just focus on physical appearance. What's the sense of admirable beauty when you're pale and sickly? Remember, health is wealth. :)
You may want to try following the suggestions.

I hope you guys find this information useful!
