Facial Mapping 101 ~What Your Skin Is Trying To Tell You
by Brooke Nitzsche, Holistic Esthetician and Creator of Brooke Elizabeth Organics
“I have always held the fundamental philosophy that skincare should be an extension of the healing arts. Skincare is a routine, a commitment to us, done daily. It only makes sense that we would want to nourish our mind, body, and soul with our daily skincare routine.”
Facial mapping is used as a tool by many Chinese Medicine Practitioners to identify and diagnose health conditions in the body. Our face and skin provide a very detailed analysis for treatment. When working with the skin as a holistic esthetician it became very clear to me that if we were able to remediate imbalances in the body we would most certainly attain results in the skin as our skin is just a snap shot of the bigger picture.
All BEO products were designed to influence healing from the inside out. Through the use of pure essential oils our products work to vibrationally assist the body in balancing, tonifying and purifying on all levels.
There is a unique synergy in all of our products that you will not find in many, if any skincare lines. You will see and feel this for yourself. Here are some specific tips to help you choose the right BEO products for you. To keep it simple I am going to reference the Facial Map and skin conditions as to which BEO products will be most suitable for you.
- Problems in the areas of the Heart which may show up as chronic redness, inflamed acne lesions, and capillary distention will respond beautifully to: Awaken ~ Purifying Facial Cleanser, Infusion Tonic ~ Fortifying Facial Tonic and Calm ~ Facial Oil.
- Problems in the areas of the Kidneys and Liver such as dryness, dehydration, irregular pigmentation and maturing skin will best respond to: Awaken ~ Purifying Facial Cleanser, Infusion Tonic ~Fortifying Facial Tonic and Nourish ~ Facial Oil.
- Problems in the areas of Intestines, Digestion and Spleen/Hormones such as non-inflamed follicular congestion (white/blackheads), break-outs, uneven texture or scarring, or loss of elasticity will benefit from: Awaken ~ Purifying Facial Cleanser, Infusion Tonic ~ Fortifying Facial Tonic and Strengthen ~ Facial Oil.
- Problems in the areas of Lungs and Colon such as asphyxiated skin (dull appearance), tissue congestion (feeling lumps and bumps in the deep layers of the skin), and excessive dryness will respond quickly to: Awaken ~ Purifying Facial Cleanser, Infusion Tonic ~ Fortifying Facial Tonic and Freedom ~ Facial Oil.
Always apply your BEO Facial Oils to damp skin as water assists in pulling the oils into the skin. Warm your facial oil in the palms of your hands before pressing on your face, neck and décolleté using and upward and outward motion. Then gently pat your oil around your eyes and mouth and follow your bliss!
