What Your Face Tells You about Your Health

2. Forehead

Horizontal lines on the forehead: “This may indicate digestive issues,” Young says.“They can be combated by drinking warm water mixed with lemon juice first thing every morning.”

A pronounced frown line: “A pronounced line between the eyes shows the liver is under pressure. This could be for physical, environmental and ­emotional reasons, an allergy to foods/substances or loss and grief,” Day says. “This leads to adrenal overload, known as burnout. Try gently massaging the area with circular moves.”

Pimples on the forehead: “This could indicate internal symptoms, such as problems with the liver and stomach congestion,” Robinson says. “Drink plenty of water to flush out any toxins. You should also eat more liver-friendly foods, such as leafy green vegetables, and cut out processed foods, as well as caffeine.”

3. Ears and jawline

Itchy ears: “Itchy ears are often the sign of an allergy or low tolerance,” Day says. “Psoriasis and ­eczema here are signs that the person is depleted in vitamin D – the sunshine vitamin. [Spending] 10 ­minutes with the arms and face ­exposed will give the body vital ­sunshine and plenty of vitamin D.”

Acne on the jawline: “Acne here may result from eating lots of dairy, sugar and refined foods, such as burgers, chips, crisps and fizzy drinks,” Young says. “Eat more fresh foods and replace fizzy drinks with water to flush out toxins. Ensure the affected areas are cleansed thoroughly.”

Acne around the jawline: “Oestrogen is a friend to our skin, ­suppressing sebaceous ­activity, but when levels reduce as women get older, skin lacks lustre and you may experience acne cysts deep in the dermis and commonly found on the jawline and hairline,” dermatologist Dr Howard Murad says. “Try eating apricots, shiitake ­mushrooms, sweet ­potatoes, and ­mangos as they all contain ­vitamin A to ­normalise the ­production and life cycle of skin cells.”

4. Eyes

Dark circles under the eyes: “Dark circles that persist despite ­regular and restful sleep may be a result of food intolerances,” Young says. “Sufferers should ­remove dairy and wheat from their diet and see if the circles lighten. Another culprit is alcohol – even in moderate amounts this can cause ­darkness around the eyes. Try to reduce alcohol consumption.”

Dark circles on the eyes: “This indicates a possible deficiency of iron in the blood,” Robinson says. “Try reducing the amount of ­stimulating drinks you have, including fizzy drinks, coffee and tea.”

White spots on the eyes: “A series of white spots near the outer rim can indicate a chronic congestion of the lymphatic system,” Robinson says. “You should avoid lactose and cow’s milk products.”

Spots on the cheeks: “These can be caused by not cleaning foundation away properly so the skin ­becomes congested,” Helen Ambrosen, co-founder and product inventor of Lush cosmetics company, says. “This might be from using a water-based cleanser that doesn’t remove make-up fully. Use an oil-based ­cleanser and take a break from wearing make-up to let the skin breathe.”
