SPOTS AND SKIN TONE COULD SIG­NAL FOOD IS­SUES

Fairlady - - FACE IT! -

Health-based face read­ing is a huge trend right now, thanks to natur­o­pathic doc­tor Dr Nigma Talib and her book, Re­verse the Signs of

Age­ing. There are clear signs as­so­ci­ated with overeat­ing – or in­tol­er­ances to – cer­tain foods, she ex­plains. ‘The signs are so pre­dictable that it’s got to a point where I can tell ex­actly what foods some­one has been overeat­ing sim­ply by look­ing at them.’ Here’s what to look for:

TOO MUCH GLUTEN: Spots on the fore­head, puffy cheeks and jowls that make your face look like you’ve gained weight, red­ness and/or red spots on the cheeks, and spots or dark­ened patches on the chin TOO MUCH DAIRY: Swollen eye­lids, un­der-eye bags, dark­ness un­der the eyes, wide­spread spots and pale cheeks TOO MUCH AL­CO­HOL: Droopy eye­lids, pro­nounced lines or spots be­tween the brows, feath­ery lines on the cheeks, red­dish skin and en­larged pores TOO MUCH SUGAR: Lines and wrin­kles on the up­per fore­head, sag­ging un­der the eyes, spots – par­tic­u­larly pus­tu­lar ones all over the face – and a grey­ish or pasty-white hue to the skin.
