Did you know that certain skin conditions and characteristics are linked to your digestive health.
If you are intolerant to certain types of drink or food, you might see certain parts of your face reacting to stress in the gut in a number of ways.
Take a look – it’s fascinating.
Lines and wrinkles on the forehead, sagging under the eyes, gaunt look to the face, painful pustular pimples all over the face, thinning of the skin, a grey/pasty white hue to the skin, thinner eyebrows.
It can disrupt the bacteria in your gut triggering pimples.
Face Mapping (an ancient idea that links parts of your face to organs in your body) indicates your digestive tract is linked to your forehead so you’ll see dry patches and pimples there.
Spikes in insulin can put pressure on adrenal glands which in part control brow growth, so you can see thinning or sparse brows.
Pronounced lines or redness between the eyes, droopy eyelids, enlarged pores, dehydrated skin with feathery lines across cheeks, reddish cheeks and nose, deep nasolabial folds.
Alcohol is dehydrating which worsens lines and wrinkles.
Face Mapping indicates the area between the brows is linked to liver health, so you can see more lines here.
Alcohol can cause capillaries to dilate resulting in flushed cheeks.
Puffy red cheeks, dark pigmentation patches or spots around chin.
An increase in inflammatory reactions in your body, caused by gluten, can lead to bloated or flushed skin.
If you react to gluten your immune system reacts which affects the reproductive balance, which can lead to hormonal pimples around the chin specifically.
Swollen eyelids, bags and dark circles under eyes, small white spots and bumps on the chin.
A common lactose intolerance can also affect the immune system leading to more inflammatory responses in the body. Just as a swollen ankle happens when you damage it, your eyes can become puffy and bags more pronounced.
The estrogen and progesterone hormones in milk cause your skin cells to over-produce which block pores, bind with sebum and cause spots.
