Forehead: Digestive System: Eat less processed food and reduce the amount of fat in your diet.

Between your eyebrows: Liver: Cut out the alcohol and greasy food. This is the zone where food allergies show first. Always read the ingredients in your food.

Side of your face: Kidneys: Anything around the eyes, including dark circles, are directly correlated to dehydration. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

Nose: Heart: Check your blood pressure regularly and try to lower cholesterol by replacing “bad fats” with “good fats.” Eat Omegas 3 and 6, which can be found in nuts, avocados, fish and flax seed.

Ears and jawline: Kidneys: Again, drink up! If you can, try to cut down on drinks packed with sugar, coffee and alcohol because they cause even more dehydration.

 Under your eyes and upper cheeks: Respiratory system: Do you smoke or have allergies? This is a problem area for both. If neither of these is the issue, try to cut down on sugar and get more fresh air. Another issue could be a dirty cell phone or pillow case, which are two of the top acne responses in this area.

Sides of your chin: Hormones: This is the target zone for stress. Make sure get adequate sleep, drink water, eat leafy green veggies and keep up with your proper skincare.

Chin: Stomach: Add more fiber to your diet and drink herbal teas to help with digestion.

Neck: Illness: Zits here can be a sign that your body is fighting bacteria. Take one day to rest, mediate, relax and reduce high activity for that day.
