Chinese believe that the face is an important determinant of a person’s lot in life, and when this appears to balance both sides of the face with prosperous facial features, the powerful trinity of luck is said to be properly aligned for prosperity, wealth and good luck.
Traditionally, face reading in ancient China was a lot more than merely another way of telling one’s fortune. Physicians in ancient China looked at a person’s face and facial features to determine a person’s health and diagnose illnesses, if any. They believed that any first signs of illnesses can be seen on the face because the skin on the face is the thinnest and any minor changes to a person’s health can be determined just by examining the facial features.
Thankfully, advancements in medical sciences have led to more accurate diagnosis of medical conditions and we no longer need to rely on reading facial features to diagnose illnesses. However, Chinese today still believe that face reading can reveal a lot about a person’s true character and fate. Every facial feature – such as eyes, nose, chin, complexion, eyebrows etc – has a significant meaning to your personality and your destiny.
Face reading practitioners believe that it is possible to change your fate by altering facial features of the face. Although a person’s fate is already decided at the time of a person’s birth, there is some room to change our fate or destiny by our own efforts. These can often influence and change the course of your life.
Ways of improving quality of life with aesthetic treatments
Let’s take a look at what facial features are ideal, what they mean and what minor corrections you can make to improve your quality of life.
Clear and Bright Forehead for a Brighter Future
The forehead represents your fortune and how smooth sailing your life is. Your face is like a house and your forehead, the roof of the house. An ideal forehead should be round, full and smooth with no visible marks, lines or scars.
A round, full and smooth forehead indicates power, wealth and great authority. Take great care to ensure that your forehead is clear of blemishes, spots and unsightly pimples. Moles right in the centre of the forehead should be removed as they are deemed inauspicious.

A Beautiful Nose for Good Luck and Wealth
One of the most important facial features is your nose. Your nose is considered the repository of wealth.
The perfect nose for good fortune would be one that is fleshy, symmetrical, and sharp. A nose that has a high and straight bridge, with a big and round tip is desired by many. It is said that such a nose not only brings luck and wealth to the person. It also indicates sound physical health, positive mental attitude, and also denotes success in career.
Any spot – white or black, are seen as obstacles. Moles at the tip of the nose are regarded as signs of misfortunes.

By clearing your blemishes, scars and spots on your face, you can change your life by removing potential obstacles that may be in your way.

Well-Defined and Hydrated Lips for Powerful Speech
In Chinese face reading, the lips frame the dominant feature of the face. It also acts as the entrance to the body, therefore the mouth is traditionally one of the most important facial features to face reading practitioners. Lips is known as one of the major rivers of the face.
Irrespective of the size and shape, lips should never appear dry and cracked because poorly moisturized and cracked lips indicate a lack of water in the river. Water represents abundance and prosperity. To encourage prosperity in your life, it is important that the lips stay soft, supple, and shapely. The shape of your lips also gives you the power of persuasion. It is imperative that the shape of the lips is symmetrical and luscious. The ideal ratio of the height of the upper lip to the lower one is 1.4:1.6.
As we age, the fat at the corner of the lips disappear, resulting in the downward look. The face ends up looking sad and depressed – which is not good for people who want to attract positive energies and wealth into their lives.
The area in the middle of the upper lip, also called the Cupid’s Bow, straightens with age and loses its shape. The Cupid’s Bow is an area that is often neglected in Chinese face reading because it takes up only a small space on the face. However, the Cupid’s Bow bestows a person the mighty gift of the gab and provides the person the power to convince others by their speech. Having a defined Cupid’s Bow brings good fortune to the person.
Treatments which help you to attain the power of persuasion:
- Filler Lip Redefinition to shape, moisturize your lips, and restore youthfulness and volume
Prominent Chin to Enjoy Prosperity and Longevity
The chin defines the structure and the person’s face shape. The chin is also known as the ‘mountain’ of your face. It is the trinity of 天, 地, 人. The chin needs to be protruding and prominent in order to enjoy good wealth, longevity, and prosperity. Having a strong chin and jawline means that you will blessed with a long life. A receding chin is a sign of misfortune in old age, or in some cases, it can even be a sign of premature death in some serious cases.

A good pair of eyes should have large pupils and clear whites. The eyelids should be lifted to look more youthful and energetic. Lively and bright eye naturally make you look more intelligent and energetic and this is characterized by lifted eyelids.
Droopy and sleepy eyes signify a lack of vitality and energy. Such eyes also bestow bad luck and ill fate to the person. Eyes should ideally be clear of lines, wrinkles and eye bags as these are seen as obstructions to having a pair of clear and bright eyes.
