Acupressure Points for Pimples and Acne -- Guest Blog by Yasko

Here's a great post by Yasko of Bliss Squared Massage on how to prevent pimples and acne through Acupressure.

First, locate your acupressure points:
  • ST 2 – The first ones are under the eyes. When you look straight in front of you they are under the pupils of your eyes right on the cheek bone. About a finger width from the eye socket. These are called Stomach 2. Gently press these points perpendicular to the cheek bone.
  • ST 3 – The next set of point are about an inch below those points. These are called Stomach 3. It’s on the edge of the cheek bone. Press them gently slightly upward into the cheek bone. They are still under the pupils of your eyes. These are good for improving the circulation and metabolism on your face and clearing the blemishes and acnes.
  • GB 12 – The third set of points are behind the ears. Behind the earlobe there is a bone. This is called mastoid process. There’s a depression behind it. This is called Gall Bladder 12. This point is good for regulating the excess oil production which can be the cause of the pimples and acnes. I like to press this point by resting the elbow on the armrest and just lean into it one side at a time.
Then, press these points as you breathe deeply for one minute as you watch other YouTube videos. Also good for pimples are the acupressure points for constipation because they help eliminate the waste out of your system. You can learn those points here: Acupressure Points for Constipation.
