For thousands of years, the Chinese have diagnosed people by looking at their faces. Much can be revealed by facial observation such as illness, energy blockage (qi stagnation), energy deprivation (qi deficiency), fertility problems, emotional history and even diabetes. Traditional Chinese masters look at the skin color, wrinkles, area of wrinkles, and skin thickness to diagnosis.

WHAT CAN HELP?
Organic face products can help cosmetically and constitutionally. Essential oils paired with the right base can penetrate the skin and help systematically.
