Have you suffered from getting embarrassing pimples that show up in the middle of your eyebrows? It's even worse when they appear on a day where there's a wedding or fancy dinner party to attend!
It's time to eradicate this nuisance from your face for good.
In the Chinese traditional medicine practice called "face reading," doctors, scholars, and other professionals studied people's faces to gain clues about a person's fortune, personality, and health.
Today, we've adopted the idea that facial skin problems can give us clues about our overall health. We now understand that the skin's state is not only a reflection of how we care for it, but also how we care for our bodies as a whole. Exercise, diet, and stress relief all contribute to how the skin responds.
Traditional Chinese medicine connects the area between the eyebrows to the liver. So if you have acne, redness, flakiness, or excess oiliness in this area, your liver could be stressed.
The liver is the largest gland in the body and the largest solid organ. These are just a few things that your liver does daily:
And these are only some of its tasks. It has a significant role to play in digesting and metabolizing what we eat. If we overindulge in fatty, greasy foods or alcohol, which require the liver to work harder, we could be stressing the liver.
Traditional Chinese medicine says that if you have skin problems in this area, it could indicate serious liver issues such as:
• Liver stress
• Fatty liver disease
These are the more severe illnesses, which are thankfully rare. Your brow pimples could mean either of the following:
Some practitioners refer to it as the "wine and dine" area because our diets affect it directly. Are you doing any of these?
• Indulging in high-fat, greasy foods
• Drinking too much alcohol
• Eating too late in the night
• Encouraging toxic buildup due to excess food consumption, too little water, or exposure to pollution
• Overeating dairy products (if you have trouble digesting them)
• Harboring too much stress
Some practitioners who do face-mapping also connect this area to stress-induced emotional difficulties.
There's much that we still don't know about the possible connection between psychological distress and liver disease. However, we know that stress affects other organs, and new research suggests that the liver may be similarly affected.
• Suppressed anger & frustration
• Strong feelings of stress
• Bitterness and resentment
Constant redness, flaking, or acne between the brows are probably a reflection of what you're going through in life and how you're coping.
