Face Reading and Cellulite? Body Image and what Hayden Panettiere’s Face Says

So I was reading an article this morning from Women’s Health magazine. They were interviewing actress, Hayden Panettiere. She was talking about her body image issues and how she has suffered from a condition called: Body dysmorphia, also known as “perceived ugliness.” This is a type of mental illness where a person is fixated on a perceived flaw in their appearance. A page from the Mayo Clinic explains that a person with the disorder feels intense shame and seeks to avoid being seen. It seems when Hayden was 16, a magazine showed a picture of her and commented on her cellulite which began the onset of this condition for her.

So why did she develop this condition after one comment. Yes, the media is hard on starlets and Hollywood is cutthroat, but there are messages in Hayden’s face that tell us, she couldn’t let this comment roll off her back.

Hayden has a beautiful round, full face with nice plump cheeks. This face shape combined with the fleshiness in her cheeks suggest that there will be the tendency to be more fleshiness in her body by nature. In other words, she will always have to work hard to be slim and still she could have cellulite. It is part of her inherent energetic makeup. That in itself could be frustrating for her. But, her eyebrows also reveal someone who is very self-critical. Hayden will always be harder on herself than on anyone else. Her nose tells us she is a young woman who cares very much about the quality of her work and can be a perfectionist at times. This is great for her career, but could wreak havoc on her self-esteem if she thought she was not presenting the right image of herself to the world. The combination of her features also suggest someone who could be prone to anxiety when stressed, thus leading imbalance in her energetic systems and the possibility of the development of a mental illness.

Luckily, Hayden has found ways to rebalance her energy and has accepted her body and her beauty. She was quoted as saying: “People can tell when you’re happy with being you and when you’re not. It’s only cheesy because it’s true. As I’ve gotten older and grown into my body, I’ve started realizing that the way you carry yourself and that light coming out of your eyes are the most attractive things about you.”

Someone with Hayden’s features (widow’s peak, pointed corners of her mouth, her complexion, to name a few) should always have a beautiful light coming out of her eyes. The Chinese call this light “shen.” We never want our lights to go dim! Notice the difference in Hayden’s eyes, in the two pictures. In her younger photo, her eyes appear much darker as her “shen” is so dim. In the more recent photo, the green of her eyes is vibrant again as her “shen” is bright and lively.
