For Leo you will notice that you will see extreme conditions on your skin - overly dry and overly oily. Of course this is a result of busy schedules, stress and eating on the run which knocks your system out of balance.
According to Chinese Face Reading called Physiognomy, the face is a road map to discovering what is going on in the entire body. And in East Indian Face Reading a persons whole life is written on their face. Based on your expression lines and the reading of energy on your face, every aspect of your life can be read - like what challenges you are facing, what you are balancing, what is out of balance. In this type of reading it is a matter of reading between the lines to see what is going on in your heart and inspiring you to take on and become clear about the challenges in your life whether they be about career, love, health, relationships or money - these are all common themes that are at the source of stress which shows up in the body and in imperfections on the skin.

The face symbolizes your identity and your inner and outer persona. Your face reveals your history, your ancestory and overall expressions through your life. You face says where you have been, where you are going and what you are presently dealing with. They say that in the beginning we are given our faces, but over time we mold and shpe our own faces based on how we feel. Makes since because as we feel and react to what we are facing in our life, it impacts the facial muscles, which when moved a particular way over time start to become permanent lines. I see the lines as beautiful because they tell the stories of our experiences and whether we have been happy or sad in the end it is all about creating that balance within ourselves and that starts with our thoughts. What you say to yourself creates a huge impact in your relationship with how you see the world. The challenge is that we when get blocked we are too close to ourselves and result in acting in ways that are consistent with being out of balance such as overeating, underexercising etc. So in this article, my intention is to help you to explore new ways to unblock your energy in ways that specifically relate to this cycle. In each cycle there are specific targeted areas that will show up - there is no accident so don't be suprised if you can relate heavily to the information shared below. Feel free to contact me by phone or email if you have questions and would like to set up an appointment for me to anser questions that specific relates to you.
Each month, there will be sections of the face that will be more predominant and more of a focus point than others. This month you will want to keep an eye out on your forehead and cheeks. Everything going on inside of the body will eventually surface to the outside of the body. These particular areas are associated with the digestive system (the forehead) and reveal what is going on in the heart (the cheeks). Notice if there are any breakouts.
If you have breakouts on your forehead, it shows that you have alot of toxins in your digestive track. In this case I recommend that you do a digestive cleanse or get a colonic to remove build up. With both of these cleanses, you will notice that all bloating goes away and because the toxins are released, any acne will go away without any prescriptions. This area of the body relates to digesting and processing ideas. If you are dealing with stress, making choices,that will change the course of your life, dealing with confidence issues, fear, trust challenges - it can be at the source of stress and driving you subconsciouly to eat certain types of food. Knowing what you are eating and why - like going deeper to waht is really driving your choices is access to being empowered. When you are empowered you are mentally clear, which results as eating foods that will evoke that same feeling. I recommend on a daily basis to lighten up on fried foods, caffeine, salt and sugar. Eating these types of foods can affect your ability to absorb nutrients. I suggest taking on eating 5 small meals during the course of your day to reduce stress. You will want to balance you carb intake and eat healthy carbs which will keep your energy flowing while maintaining your busy on the go schedule. After eating take digestive enzymes, take probiotics daily to maintain healthy bacteria in the gut - which can become off balanced when we take too many antibiotics. Take omega fish oil to help cleanse the system on a daily basis. Another thing to look at is how much bread and sugar you are eating which can lead to candita - which is an overgrowth of yeast in your system. Many people have this but don't realize it and it can go away by eliminating foods that cause yeast to build up in the digestive system. To keep energy levels up, carry nuts and trail mix with you, power bars and other healthy snacks to maintain your blood sugar levels. If you need energy exercise and take Vitamin B. All disease stems from the digestive system, so to create a balance is key for our long term health. During this cycle it is important to move your body - don't sit for long periods of time in the same position because you may not realize it, but this body posture blocks the flow of energy in the body and over time, you will get a belly that hangs over your jeans. In addition, if you notice that you have lines on the skin, you are getting headaches - this is a sign that your body is dehydrated so drink lots of water!
If you have breakouts on your cheeks, it shows that you have a stressed out heart. You will want to pay attention to the pace of your life and especially your breathing. Breathing is the breathe of life - the more deeply you breathe, the more life you take in. The more stressed you are, the more shallow the breath becomes. So to destress, slow down and become conscious about the rhythm of your breathing because it will affect your ability to lower anxiety. But, lets search for a deeper meaning. This area of the body - when related to the heart chakra, is the area where the themes in your life will be all about stress around relationships, love, health and finances. So you will want to look at your life to see where that is showing up - it is just a part of the cycle we are in. To create a clearing on the skin, you may notice that you are eating things that are knocking you off balance. To lighten up your stress and the load you are carrying on in your heart, I recommend eating more veggies and leafy green veggies. Eat salads rich in nutrients without alot of salad dressing. If you want to make your salads really interesting I suggest getting on raw food sites to make salads and other foods that are uncooked to give you plenty of enzymes. In addition, you can crack open a coconut, place several drops of probiotics into it and put it back into the frig overnight - eating this the next day will amplify the level of healthy bacteria to create a balance in the digestive track. The key to know and understand is that when you are stressed, your body becomes acidic. To have a healthy balanced system you want to eat foods that are more alcaline. And add super foods into your diet such as spiralina, wheat grass juice and juice lots of green vegetables. One of my favorite juicing recipes contains organic grapefruit, celery, oranges, ginger, bok choy, kale and carrots. It is to die for and if you drink it right after exercising when all of the toxins have been sweated out, it is like taking in a live vitamin. You will feel like you just had two shots of expresso you will have so much energy and your skin will look radiant! People will stop and ask you what it is that you are doing differently - it is that noticeable.
As important as it is to take care of our insides, it is also important to take care of the outside especailly because we are constantly faced with pollutants and other toxins from the environment. The skin is a sponge absorbing everything we put into it - so it is important to be conscious of all of the products that you use as well as the products that you put into your body like prescriptions - all of these things will affect the balance and chemistry on the skin.
Just as you do a cleanse on the inside, we recommend you do a great Skincare cleanse on the outside. This month we suggest using an exfoliant along with your daily routine to shed dead skin cells leave behind baby smooth skin and constantly refreshen the skin with a spritz which can enliven, refresh and keep you inspired to be creative. The types of skincare products you choose are important, the more natural the better. The skin is like a landscape - the more water it has and nutrients it contains the more abundant and beautiful it is. This month it is like you are in a desert mountain condition, your skin will be dry and windblown and oily from sweat. Each type of skincare product has been inspired by nature and this month as mentioned before the exfoliant is the product of the month. I discovered these origins, by actually going to the desert in California. It was hot, dry conditions and I was sweating. The wind was blowing intensely especially when I got up high. When I went back to the hotel and tried to wash my face, it felt just like an exfoliating cream and it dawned on me that this product was inspired by this environment for this reason. Going back to what I was saying before, through your eating habits, herbs, skincare made with products that have natural ingredients such as essential oils and a base that is easily absorbable, you are healing the skin and using skincare as "medicine" to have a healthy balance. This month I recommend using oils such as lemongrass, lemon, sage, rose in your skincare or even add Laura Leigh's Meditation Oil for the Solar Plexus Chakra to any of your skincare lines to open up the energy channels.
Once your skin looks like a million bucks, it is time to express yourself by applying makeup that will further enhance the beauty of your skin.
