What does your Acne reveal about your health



Upper Forehead
Affects: Digestive System and Bladder

What to do:

  • Drinking water helps to flush out the toxins in your body, so boost your water intake and have a look at the foods you are eating.
  • Minimize intake of fizzy drinks and high caffeinated drinks. Also look at switching to herbal teas, especially green tea!
  • Consume less chocolate, cakes, lemonade and Coke, drink more mineral water without gas. Eat food that helps eliminate toxins from the body: boiled cabbage, and baked apples.
  • Go to bed early (10pm) and wake up early (6am). Even if you can’t fall asleep. it’s good to relax so your liver can rest and be ready for work the next day
  • 20-30 minutes of light exercise every day, especially outdoors
  • Practice relaxation techniques to worry less
  • Better hygiene (washing hair, hats)
  • Green Tea, lemon water and berries can also help as these are antioxidant rich foods

Lower Forehead
Affects: Heart

Your heart is a massive organ that pumps blood all over your body. If it’s stressed out due to poor diet, inactivity and various mental and physical stresses, then not only are you likely to get pimples on your lower forehead, your entire body will be doomed if you don’t fix the problems. Having a healthy heart means to do regular exercises to strengthen the heart, as well as eat a healthy diet, and keeping stresses low.

What to do:

  • Try to exercise regularly
  • Drink at least 8 glasses of water
  • Eat healthy, preferably low cholesterol, high fiber diet
  • Quit smoking

Affects: Kidneys

When kidneys are not taken care of, you’ll find these large, painful pimples on your ears that refuses to leave no matter what.

What to do:

  • Increase water intake
  • Avoiding eating too much salty food, caffeine
  • cleanse your kidneys with diuretics like parsley and water

Eyes, orbital area and between the Eyebrows
Affects: Liver

Oiliness, redness, flakiness and pimples between the eyebrows can indicate that your liver may have been overworking and need a cleansing.

What to do:

  • Eat fruits and vegetables with high content of vitamin C (kiwi, sweet pepper, oranges) will help in providing you with a good mood.
  • Try to avoid eating late at night; especially right before bedtime as your body will not break down the food as effectively, leading to a toxin build up.
  • Cut back on fatty, sugary, greasy and rich foods, alcohol and diary, particularly if you’re lactose intolerant.
  • Some of the best foods to cleanse your liver include garlic, grapefruit, green tea, carrots, beets, leafy green vegetables, lemons and lime.

And I never thought I’d eat hummus.
Oh Friends…

I have only sad news. I am not in very good shape. My body is not wedding ready. What really hit home was when I took a picture of my back only moments ago. Now I am le sad. BUT this is not the end. I want to get on a routine again. It’s going to be tough, but I will have to persevere. It will require a lot of planning, but I must be determined. I believe if I work hard I can do this. My only hurdle is myself. And it’s a damn big one.

No Pants Yogi

I want to do yoga more often because I actually like it (but apparently my body doesn’t like the idea of exercises these days). I;ve come to the conclusion that by the time I change into my exercise clothes I just don’t want to do anything, so instead I just decided to do No Pants Yoga. Then I can just drop trou and go because it basically requires no effort. So my goal today was to do yoga, and I actually did it. At work I was just feeling exhausted, but regardless when I got home, I literally forced myself to finish my yoga tape. Part of me was like “YEAH YOGA”, the other was like, “STAHP IT!”. Then I ate 5 cookies. Yoga good, cookies not so good.

Post yoga face. First time in a while I’ve had Jillian Michaels kicking my ass.

Spaghetti with Lobster
Well I’m Bummed.

Initially I was excited to see a YMCA opened at my end of town, but now I’m not so happy because their membership and enrollment fees suck. It’s like $55 a month plus a one time enrollment fee of $40. That works out to be roughly $695 for a year. That’s at least $250 more than I would have paid for a year membership when it was still a Progress Fitness center.
