Face mapping is not an exact science, but done properly by reading facial features based on the ancient Indian tradition of healing known as Ayurveda, we can find out plenty of interesting facts.
Starting with the simplest and most visible facial features, you could learn a thing or two about your body, feelings and sometimes even about your character. I also wrote about the Face mapping for acne (you can read it here.)
The above illustration shows many of the most common lines, wrinkles and other features we may notice on a day-to-day basis.
Here’s how to read them according to Ayurveda, the ancient Indian tradition of healing.
1 Horizontal lines on the forehead are perhaps the easiest to read because those who have prominent ones are usually under a lot of stress. They are commonly referred to as “worry lines” which explains the conclusion described above, but they can also be the result of eating too much fat, sugar or liquids.
2Right vertical lines between eyebrows might indicate an ailing liver
3Left vertical lines between eyebrows could be the result of spleen issues
4A deep horizontal grove at top of nose is more visible on the faces of those with a low sex drive or likely to suffer from allergies.
5Crows feet are barely visible lines starting from your eyes, which are the result of squinting and not surprisingly are associated with poor eyesight but also liver problems.
6Bags or dark circles under the eyes are mostly an issue for those who don’t get enough sleep, but they can also indicate a more severe problem with your kidneys or circulation.
7Tender area at center of cheeks could signal sinus congestion or digestive issues
8A red nose tip should prompt you to visit a cardiovascular specialists, as your heart could be in trouble.
9Deep vertical lines at side of mouth is usually associated with reproductive system problems
10Prominent laughter lines can be both benign if you’re the kind of person who laughs a lot, but can also suggest diabetes or pancreatic issues
11Vertical lines above top lip are frequent among those who have insufficient sexual activity or smoke a lot
12Spots on the lips come in different colors, with a white and dark discoloration meaning parasites in the colon, while blue-purple discolorations could be the result of weak circulation
13Double chin on overweight persons is rather frequent, but generally it is a sign of thyroid gland problems
14Ring around iris is often associated with high cholesterol
15Prominent temporal vein occurs when you are under a lot of stress and your blood pressure rises
16Deep groove on the chin can be both positive and negative, as they are either a sign of strong sex drive or the consequence of frustration
The bottom line is that some of these facial lines can raise the alarm flags on a plethora of conditions, but they cover a broader spectrum, including emotions. To make it easier to read facial features, it is worth following the recommendations of Ayurveda and dividing the face into three areas simplifies matters considerably.
The forehead is associated with nervousness and physical conditions related to the colon, while the cheeks and nose reveal information about the small intestines and emotions such as suspicion and irritation.
By observing the facial features in your neck, mouth, and chin, you can find out whether you are suffering from stomach and chest problems or if you are likely to get into depression.
Understanding these facial features represents only the tip of the iceberg and those who want to hone their abilities to read them, will find plenty of information in the ancient tradition of Ayurveda.
Apparently, it is always recommended not to self-medicate based on your interpretation of face lines and wrinkles but consult with your physician first.
