Your face says a lot more than you think about the state of your health and your lifestyle; at least according to Eastern medicine. But you might find that even the modern medical field will agree with that. By looking closely at a persons facial features you can tell a lot about the state of their overall health. Your face can reveal several clues that can alert an onlooker to your diet or even a few possible diseases.
So, here’s what your face can reveal about your health courtesy of Style Craze.
- Any horizontal lines on your face might mean that you have digestive issues. Doctors recommend drinking warm water with lemon every morning.
- As for that pronounced frown line, it might indicate liver problems or physical stress.
- Pimples that appear on the forehead are connected with liver or stomach issues. Try eating more leafy greens.
2. Mouth and chin
- Smoking leads to lines around your mouth and accelerates aging of the skin.
- Sores around the mouth appear because of a B12 deficiency. Try consuming more meat and green vegetables.
