Skin as a Reflection of Your Internal Organs

One of the most interesting pieces of information I've learned as an esthetician is that the body's internal organs correspond to specific zones on the face. You also have these mapping points on your ears, soles of the feet, hands and abdomen. These maps are also known as "holograms."

Here's a good example: In an acne consult, I look at what part of the face is breaking out, which gives me information about the cause of the acne and other pieces of information that can help determine treatment. For instance, breakouts on the forehead relate to the intestines. Getting someone with forehead acne on probiotics to reduce inflammation from the inside out usually gives quick results.
