Face mapping –what your acne is trying to tell you and how to treat it naturally

Are you a University student suffering from acne? You’re not alone. Acne is a widespread issue, with 3 in 5 of young adults admitting that it has affected their self-confidence. Spots can occur for several reasons, from hormone imbalances, to your diet - and for people suffering from it, one of the most frustrating things can be determining why the breakouts occur.

This is where face-mapping can become an invaluable tool, helping those who suffer from frequent breakouts to determine why and how to treat it without harmful drugs using natural ingredients. In this blog, Vita-You takes a look at the popular method and best ways to target specific acne problems:

Forehead

Breakouts along the forehead are usually linked to the digestive system and may indicate a lack of hydration and nutrients in your diet. What’s more, a proper cleansing routine is essential and Vita You’s ACNEcycle contains olive oil – a well-known ingredient for its ultra-hydrating properties.

Cheeks

Spots on our cheeks are often related to respiratory issues, but can also be linked to other factors such as air pollution, dirty phone screens and pillows. Be sure to wash your face both in the morning and evening, alongside using our ACNEcycle range - which has tea tree oil a powerful natural antibacterial ingredient - to clear up and prevent breakouts.

Chin

Blemishes along the chin and jawline are a common sign of hormonal imbalances, caused by an excess amount of androgens, which overstimulate the oil glands and clog pores. ACNEcycle contains plant-derived Omega 3, 6 & 9 fatty acids, aloe vera and vitamins A, D and E, to reduce redness from inflammation and nourish skin cells to promote rapid healing.

Nose

Your nose is extremely sensitive, and this is often where dirt can build up in the pores – so be sure to cleanse this area thoroughly. High blood pressure can also make spots in this area worse, meaning it may be worth taking a look at your diet.
