Face Mapping: What Are Your Spots Telling You?
Spots are an absolute pain. Whether you get them often or rarely they can be stressful and difficult to get rid of, and really affect our self confidence. But did you know that the location of your spots can give us clues as to what's causing them? And once you know what's causing them it may be easier to prevent them.
As lovely as a fringe can look, it can also unfortunately cause spots beneath it as fringes collect grease from hair products. However spots on the forehead have also been linked to diet. These spots can indicate an over-consumption of red meat, saturated fats and alcohol", so cut down on these food groups and the boozing. Try doing a bit of a detox, cutting out meat and booze in favour of fresh veggies, herbal teas and water and look for a difference in your skin.

Spots on the jawline can indicate congestion in the large intestine, often caused by heavily processed foods. Clean eating and going for some simpler foods like fruit, veggies and nuts might help clear up the issue.
