Could your face reveal the secrets to what's going on inside your body?

Chinese Facial-Reading Chart

For thousands of years, Chinese healers have been reading faces to detect and diagnose all kinds of diseases. Facial skin is sensitive and can reflect internal changes faster than other parts of the body. Learn how you can use this ancient practice to uncover clues about your health.

Chinese Facial Reading Chart


Eyes
Eyes are the window to your liver. If you notice any change in color, that's a sign something is wrong – especially if the color is yellow. If your eyes yellow, go see a doctor.

Nose
The nose is connected to the heart. An especially red nose or a line through the nose both indicate that you could have heart issues.

Upper Lip
If a woman is experiencing fertility issues, fibroids or hormonal fluctuations, she will notice changes on the middle of her upper lip.

Cheeks
Your lungs are connected to your cheeks. If you notice changes on the hollowing of your cheeks, it could be a sign that you're not breathing properly.

Will you ever feel comfortable in your own skin? That is, if you don't make an effort to protect it? Although 64% of adults do report wearing sunscreen when outside for prolonged periods of time, it turns out that only about 10% of people surveyed actually protect themselves daily, according to a recent review.

No matter what your skin tone is, unless you live in a cave with no sunlight, daily protection with either sunscreen, sunblock or protective clothing can not only protect you from developing sunburns (ouch!) but can significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer, particularly the deadliest type called melanoma. In addition, for those of you wanting to keep your youthful looks, daily sunscreen has been shown to reduce the development of wrinkles. A great teacher once told me that the best way to not have wrinkles is not to get them in the first place (think of how much money you can save on useless creams that claim to diminish wrinkles).
