Face mapping combines modern dermatology with ancient Chinese medicine. The idea is that there’s a correlation between your internal organs and different zones of your face.
Face mapping makes a lot of sense when you consider the fact that your skin is an organ too (the largest organ in your body, in fact). Besides just being an interesting topic, educating yourself about face mapping can actually help to clear up your skin. Once you’ve identified what’s causing your acne, it’s easier to prevent it. While some causes are unavoidable (monthly hormone swings, for instance), diet and lifestyle changes can definitely help to clear up your skin.
Without further ado, here are what your breakouts are telling you in five different zones of your face…
- Forehead. Breakouts across the forehead are often triggered by stress or sleep deprivation. Make sure to log 7 to 9 hours of beauty rest a night to keep your forehead clear.
- Above the brow. The area above the brow is affected by your immune system. Breakouts here tend to happen right before, after, or during a cold or flu. If you notice a breakout in this zone, slow down for a couple days, drink plenty of water and eat these 10 immune boosting foods.
- Between brows. Breakouts between the brows can be caused by overindulgence of unhealthy foods or a food allergy. Cutting back on sugar, dairy, rich foods, and alcohol can help clear up skin in this zone.
- Cheeks. Your cheeks are linked to your respiratory system. Smoking or breathing polluted air can cause breakouts here.
- Side of chin. The sides of your chin are affected by hormones. Breakouts here occur around the time of your period and happen on one side or another depending on which ovary is ovulating that month.

Now This is What the Holidays Should be About
Canadian airlines WestJet played Santa Clause to a group of weary travelers this holiday season. With the help of a virtual Santa Clause WestJet employees learned what passengers at the Toronto and Hamilton International Airports — who were waiting to board flights to Calgary — had on their Christmas wish lists. Once everyone boarded the planes, the WestJet team also took off ! More than 150 WestJet employees played the part of Santa’s elves, gathering personalized presents, wrapping them and delivering them to the Calgary airport before the unsuspecting recipients landed. Upon arrival, the travelers received nothing short of a holiday miracle at baggage claim. The entire event was captured via hidden cameras and turned into an ad mimicking the poem commonly known as The Night Before Christmas.
Also, this year, WestJet will donate flights if the video receives at least 200,000 YouTube views.
What a great way to get everyone into the Holiday Spirit!
During the Antarctic summer of 1988, a Spanish scientific expedition collected mud samples from the inlet, Admiralty Bay on King George Island, Antarctica. A new bacterial strain, Pseudoalteromonas Antarctica, was isolated from these samples and characterized. During growth the bacteria produced an extracellular material, an exopolymer of glycoproteins, believed to help the bacteria retain water, adhere to surfaces, and withstand the extreme cold. The resulting exopolymer (known today as Antarcticine) underwent a multitude of extensive testing and was later confirmed to produce incredible benefits when used in skin care. Its protective function in nature is applied in skin care to regenerate and protect the skin, thus resulting in numerous benefits, as shown below, when applied topically to the skin.
- Increase in collagen and elastin formation, improving firmness, decreasing the signs of wrinkles, and creating an overall healthier-looking complexion
- Reduction in the depth of wrinkles and lines, specifically around the forehead and eyes, which translates into a younger looking face
- Increase in hydration and moisture in the skin, which helps to re-hydrate the skin
- Helps the skin to retain water, preventing dryness
- Stimulates fibroblast adhesion and keratinocyte growth, regenerating tissues and enabling a faster healing of wounds
- Extensive tests also showed that Antarcticine has no negative side effect or any toxic effect; neither did it cause any irritation.
To sum it up, Antarcticine helps to protect the epidermis from extreme cold, speed wound healing, stimulate collagen and elastin formation and has proven to reduce the depth of wrinkles between 50-60% after 30 days!
