Fix Your Health Fix Your Face

“Your face is a mirror of your health” (Angela Zhang). And that so happens to be a fact. Your facial appearance can provide a vast insight into what may be going on with the major internals organs of the body. In other words, fix your health and you’ll fix your facial appearance.

Used since the time of Confecius, the ancient art of face reading has been effectively used to help determine the health of internal organs. According to Angela Zhang,  founder of Chineese Energy Therapy, “The Chinese understand the concept that the face represents the energies, health and fortune of a person, and their wish to live in harmony.”

Face reading was created by the the great Huang Di, yellow emperor, and to date, it can still be found in The Yellow Emperor’s Classic Of Medicine.

It’s believed that the 5 major organs – heart, liver, lungs, spleen and kidneys – have openings or windows to the face.

1. Eyes – are the windows to the  liver.
2. Lips - are the windows to the spleen (stomach)
3. Tongue – is the window to the heart
4. Nose – is the window to the lungs
5. Ears - are the windows to the kidneys

Other than the Chinese face reading, similar eastern practices like Ayurvedic face mapping, is also used to red flag deficiencies with internal health.

A abnormal change in appearance or function to any of these facial structures is usually an indication that it’s windowed organ may not be in perfect working condition.

I can personally attest to the chin and jaw area break outs being a sign of hormonal and gynecological issues. When my hormones were out of whack, the place where most of my breakouts showed up was my chin and jaw. It all changed however, after I incorporated anti-inflammatory foods into my diet and nailed down a solid nutritional routine.

So, take a peek in. Examine your structures for a hint of what might be really going on internally.

8 Tips For Gorgeous And Glowing Spring Skin

Spring the sensational is finally here, and if you haven’t already, it’s time to start prepping and pampering your pretty skin. To maintain a healthy and gorgeous complexion, consistency is definitely the key; what you put in is what you’ll get out.

Here are 8 simple tips that will help you get your skin gorgeous and glowing this spring.

- Exfoliate your body with a salt or sugar scrub to slosh away dead skin cells and reveal beautiful, glowing skin. My choice, Dixie Bits’ Sweet Sugar Darlin Scrub. It’s my summer sensation in a jar.

- Wear a broad rim hat to help protect your face from UV damage, especially if you’re using retinoids and chemical peels with glycolic acid, which tend to attract rays. My favorite summer hats are the panama: they offer style and practicality.

- Hydrate your skin from the inside by drinking lots of water.

-  Eat healthy and balanced meals. Be sure to include fruits and vegetables.

- Exercise at least 3 days out of the week. Increased oxygen to your cells will nourish and refresh you skin cells.

- Sleep well. Cell repair and tissue rejuvenation requires rest. Try to get 6 to 8 hours of sleep per night. Your skin will thank you.

- Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from UVA and UVB damage. In addition, wearing sunglasses prevents squinting, which leads to fine lines and wrinkles. As a rule, I never, ever leave the house without my sunglasses.

- Pamper your feet and hands. It always feels good to get a great manicure and pedicure.
