What your acne is trying to tell you...

1 & 2: Digestive System — Eat less processed or junk food, 

reduce the amount of fat in your diet, step up water intake 

and opt for cooling things like cucumbers.

no junk food

3: Liver — Cut out the alcohol, greasy food and dairy. This is 

the zone where food allergies also show up first, so take a 

look at your ingredients. Besides all this, do 30 minutes of 

light exercise every day and get adequate sleep so your liver

 can rest.

do a light exercise

4 & 5: Kidneys — Anything around the eyes (including dark 

circles) point to dehydration. Drink up!

drink plenty of water

6: Heart — Check your blood pressure and Vitamin B levels. 

Decrease the intake of spicy or pungent food, cut down on 

meat and get more fresh air. Besides this, look into ways to 

lower cholesterol, like replacing “bad fats” with “good fats” 

such as Omegas 3 and 6 found in nuts, avocados, fish and 

flax seed. Also, since this area is chock-full of dilated pores, 

check that your makeup is not past its expiry date or is skin-


avoid spicy food

7 & 8: Kidneys — Again, drink up! And cut down on aerated 

drinks, coffee and alcohol as these will cause further 


drink again? FINE !!

Zone 9 & 10: Respiratory system — Do you smoke? Have 

allergies? This is your problem area for both. If neither of 

these is the issue, don’t let your body overheat, eat more 

cooling foods, cut down on sugar and get more fresh air. 

Also keep the body more alkaline by avoiding foods that 

make the body acidic (meat, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, sugar) 

and adding more alkalizing foods like green veggies and 

wheatgrass juice. Another thing that most of forget – dirty 

cell phones and pillow cases are two of the top acne culprits 

and this area is what they affect the most!

dirty pillow case? Yuck!!

Zone 11 & 12: Hormones — This is the signature zone for 

stress and hormonal changes. And while both are 

sometimes unavoidable, you can decrease their effect by 

getting adequate sleep, drinking enough water, eating leafy 

veggies and keeping skin scrupulously clean. Another 

interesting point: breakouts in this area indicate when you 

are ovulating (and on which side).

get a good sleep on a clean pillow case =)

Zone 13: Stomach — Step up the fibre intake, reduce the 

toxin overload and drink herbal teas to help with digestion.

drink tea..and btw, she's cute..isn't she? ;)

14: Illness — Zits here can be a sign that your body is 

fighting bacteria to avoid illness. Give it a break, take a yoga 

class, take a nap, take time to breathe deeply, drink plenty 

of water and know that everything always works out!

take yoga class, you'll find that cute girls & handsome boys in the class will reduce your stress & hopefully will vanish your acnes ;D
