Acne Breakouts and How Chinese Medicine Can Help

Updated: Jul 7, 2021

Today we'll take a look at how Chinese Medicine can help with acne breakouts. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the body is considered a hologram: reflecting itself from within itself. In this way, our face, hair, and nails mirror our internal health, and the health of our internal organs is reflected on our body’s surface. What we see on our skin reveals a deeper truth about our internal health as a whole. Chinese Medicine may be able to give us some guidance on how to maintain healthy skin through maintaining holistic health within our body.

Health is interconnected in Traditional Chinese Medicine. When we experience weakness from within our internal environment, it can be reflected on our faces in the form of breakouts. A number of factors can affect our appearance from an irregular diet, disturbed sleep, poor living habits, and prolonged stress. These factors contribute towards decreased digestive function and cause poor circulation of both blood and qi. If you're suffering from a chronic skin condition, be sure to visit our Internal Health page for more information.

Traditional Chinese Medicine face-mapping techniques can be helpful towards identifying internal issues that need to be rebalanced. Through using these indicators we can help to treat the underlying stressors and clear the skin of acne.
