What is face mapping? Face Mapping is a revolutionary approach
to skin analysis developed by The International Dermal Institute
exclusively for Dermalogica. Using the zones and the Dermalogica
Face Map as a guide, the therapist is able to conduct an inch-by-inch,
methodical analysis of the facial landscape, guaranteeing that
the subsequent professional treatment and home-care prescription
will fully address each client’s concerns.
Face Mapping is available at all approved Dermalogica salons and takes no more than 15 minutes. To book your free skin consultation click here to find a salon near you. Alternatively you can complete the Dermalogica Speed Mapping Consultation here.
Below is a guide of what the reactions of your skin in certain
zones can mean.
zones 1 & 3
Traditionally, this zone is regarded as the "sister" to
the bladder and digestive system. If you breakout frequently in
this area, it might mean that you need to improve your elimination
by drinking more water and eating more "whole" foods.
The middle of the forehead, between the eyebrows, is related to
the liver. Congestion in this zone can indicate over consumption
of alcohol, rich foods, and possibly a food allergy (such as lactose
zones 4 & 10
The ears are a highly sensitive area related to the kidneys. If
you notice that your ears are very hot, you might be stressing
them out – drink plenty of plain water and cut down on caffeine
zones 5 & 9
The cheeks often give an accurate glimpse into any respiratory
distress. Smokers or people suffering from allergies generally
experience fine, broken capillaries or congestion in this area.
zones 6 & 8
The eyes are truly a window to the body's health because they're
related to the kidneys. Dark circles, while often hereditary,
are made worse by dehydration and poor elimination.
A reddened nose can indicate heightened blood pressure, or the
early stages of rosacea. Congestion around the upper lip can occur
if you use comedogenic lipsticks or liners.
zones 11 & 13
If you've had extensive dental surgery done, you might notice
a breakout along the jaw line, near the ears.
Breakouts or unusual hair growth can indicate hormonal imbalance,
possibly caused by extreme stress. Premenstrual breakouts are
also very common on the chin.
Don't forget to include your neck in your treatment regimen -
its skin is just as fragile as that on your face, so it definitely
needs the benefits of moisturisation and sun protection
