Some people have a so-called black face not because they are in a bad mood but they literally have a darkened complexion! These people usually have blood stasis or yang deficient body types, and their kidney qi is weak. Aside from deep dark circles, even their facial skin become slightly greenish black. Aside from ensuring qi and blood are circulating properly, because black and kidney correspond to each other, it’s important to condition your kidneys to improve your darkened complexion. If you have someone around you who seem to always wear a scowl on their face but with a darkened complexion as well, be sure to tell him/her to cheer up and take care of his/her kidneys!
