Chinese face reading is a ancient practice that supposedly helps us to understand how we are connected to the world around us. This philosophy believes that there are five facial personalities that connect to the elements of fire, water, earth, wood and metal. While we all have a mixture of these features, there is usually one that dominates our overall complexion, and subsequently, our personality.

Those with a water face can be recognized by their soft complexion, large, deep eyes, wide forehead and prominent chin. They are generally deep thinkers who are reserved and peace-seeking. They like to spend a lot of time alone in self-reflection. They are often spiritual, or at least non-material and are good at empathizing with others’ feelings.
2. Earth Face
