What Your Pimples Say About Your Health

Argh, those nasty breakouts. You scrub and you wash and you tone and you moisturize, and still they show up just when you least need them.

Look carefully at where you’re breaking out. There is a theory called “face mapping” that suggests the location of your acne could present clues about what’s causing it. Traditional Chinese medicine, for example, maintains that a weakness or toxicity in a certain organ or gland in the body can result in acne showing up in certain areas of the skin. You can use this theory to do some detective work on your breakouts.
