Learning to Read Your Wrinkle Lines

Have you ever had someone look into your eyes or take one look at your countenance and claim, “Wow, you must be really tired!”? The dark circles under your eyes might have been the first clue that something was going on inside your body, but the ancient art of face mapping has long promoted the idea that each section of your face is a window revealing an internal body condition. The skin is the largest organ of the body, and it makes sense that something going on in the inside will be noticeable on the outside. Face mapping is more than just old wives' tales that claim a big nose means you have a big heart. Your skin is constantly communicating with you, but do you know what it is trying to say?

Forehead Lines and Coloration

If you have had breakouts or discoloration around the forehead, you could be experiencing a problem with your digestion or with liver functions. Common problems associated with lots of fine lines throughout the forehead could be the result of dehydration, constipation, and food allergies. Having digestive issues could mean many different things, with the body being unable to break down certain foods or have a true allergy to a specific food group. Tips for treatment or addressing them is an increase in your water intake and more awareness of the foods you are consuming. Eliminate foods known to have common allergy components, such as gluten, soy, and dairy. A food journal may be able to help you narrow down troubling foods.

Under the Eyes

If you have a lot of wrinkles or coloring under the eye area, it could mean you are dealing with kidney or liver function concerns. Crows feet, which occur at the corners of the eyes, are often considered one of the earliest signs of anti-aging. Although there are treatments to help improve the skin’s elasticity and reduce the effects of aging, having an internal problem with major organs needs closer attention. Lines underneath the eyes often indicate sleep deprivation, insufficient nutrition, and genetic conditions. The area under the eyes is one of the most delicate and thinnest areas on the body, which gets progressively thinner are people age. Iron deficiency can show up as dark circles, but puffiness can mean fluid retention, smoking, and seasonal or food allergies.

Around the Nose

If you struggle with a nose that continually seems red, you might be having issues with your blood pressure. It could also mean that your circulation needs a boost. Your nose is often the first place to breakout if your environment contains harmful air pollution. Having your blood pressure and cholesterol levels checked might give you advance warning about a more serious health condition. You can also increase your cardio routine to boost your heart’s activity and circulation.


Having a natural flush to your cheeks can act as a natural rouge, but too much color or sagging can indicate something more damaging to your body. The cheeks reveal issues that arise in the respiratory system, the stomach, and even the colon. Consistent redness or splotchy patches could mean that your body isn’t absorbing nutrients as it should. When your lungs flush a deep red after a workout, it means your lungs have been working hard. The lower cheeks reveal what is going on in the colon. You should be having regular bowel movements, as this process removes the waste and toxins that have accumulated in the body.

Chin and Jawline

With skin that continually has breakouts along the chin and jawline area, it is common for a female to have problems with their hormones, kidney, or bladder. Women who suffer from endometriosis, PCOS and uterine fibroids have been known to have problems with skin conditions around their chin or jawline. The breakouts aren’t your average pimple; they are deep, red, and cystic. The breakouts are painful to the touch, just like the acne the breakouts that can accompany pregnancy. You can have blood work done by your physician to check your hormone levels and even the function of your thyroid. You can alter your diet to help regulate your hormones, but medical assistance might be more effective at resolving the situation.

Natural Aging


The aging process is going to naturally change your appearance, with some people experiencing more wrinkles and sags than others. Genetics may play a role in this, but generally speaking, the human body starts the produce less HGH around the time an individual turns 40. This is the hormone that helps improve skin conditions, increase energy levels, rebuild muscle mass, and keep the aging effects to a minimum. Peptide treatments are one of the ways you can address the concerns of aging, and keep your skin looking youthful and vibrant.
