Pourquoi ces boutons sur le menton?

Why do I have spots on my chin?

Why do I have spots in certain areas of my face and not elsewhere? Why spots on the chin? Chinese medicine may have solutions that, along with a good skincare routine, can help you achieve beautiful skin!

According to Chinese medicine, the location of your spots is not random. Certain areas of the face are believed to be connected to specific organs of the body and certain emotions. The skin reflects what is happening inside our bodies. Treating the skin should be approached from multiple angles.

So, what does the location of your spots correspond to?

Every person generally has a "combination" of several areas... However, it should be noted that in Chinese medicine, the mentioned organs do not correspond literally to physical organs.

So, when they talk about the "kidneys" in Chinese medicine, it refers, among other things, to the reproductive system. In Chinese medicine, when they want to boost certain organs during acupuncture sessions, there are specific meridians and points that correspond to those organs. For example, the needle to boost the kidneys would not be inserted directly into the kidneys. It might be a point on the wrist or a finger.

This may seem very strange, but Chinese medicine is based on 5,000 years of wisdom, so believe me, it is often trustworthy! I have used acupuncture and various Chinese therapies many times.

In relation to this representation of the face in Chinese medicine, Western medicine also draws inspiration from it with a concept called "Face Mapping." Instead of talking about kidney problems, they refer to hormonal disruptions.
