Meaning, if your eyes are the window to your soul as they say, then your face might just be the window to understanding why you are getting breakouts and what they mean.
Like, for instance, if you wake up with a giant spot in the middle of your forehead, those who adhere to face mapping will connect your forehead to a specific area or organ in your body, and then you will be able to make the necessary changes to your diet or lifestyle to make it go away.
