Most people I know all agree, when they get stressed, their face breaks out. And for myself, pretty much all of my breakouts are around my mouth, chin, and nose. I did notice a significant drop in them when I cut back on dairy, but I think this was related to the fact that I am lactose intolerant. Now that I know what kind of dairy I can eat without causing stomach issues (and the breakouts linked to consuming something I shouldn't) my skin has somewhat calmed down, but I still have pretty significant acne. Is Face Mapping a good guide to sleuthing out the issues behind your skin problems? I would say yes, but keep in mind that you are not a doctor. (...unless you are, then by all means, diagnose away...but still get a second opinion.) Make some small changes as you are able to safely, but if you have serious issues or side affects, go see your regular care provider. At best, I think Face Mapping is a conversation-starter, and if you have a good doctor (or Nurse Practitioner), they will be glad you asked.
