Skin is a direct reflection of heat in the body. Liver heat appears red and sometimes as white dots on the skin. Endocrine heat appears as small skin-colored bumps mostly found on the forehead. Carbohydrate and protein heavy diets and other acidic foods create more heat in the body causing a tendency for skin trouble. Anger and frustration in the mind, and excess physical movement are other contributors for increased heat.
