The skin is our largest organ, and as such it can indicate numerous diseases. Most often skin problems indicate serious health disorders.

Chinese alternative medicine believes that certain facial parts are linked to different organs in the body. Symptoms of several health problems can appear on the face in the form of pimples, rashes or simple color changes.

This is how you can read the face “map” and see what it says about your health:
