Seeing your face means you’re focusing on your self-image or the mask you show others, and how much of your real self shines through. You are experiencing confrontations or heightened visibility in waking life.

Looking out from another person’s face indicates an aspect of yourself you need to accept and express.

If we see our own face in a dream, it can represent concerns about our self-image and how others see us. The dream also could be drawing on associations with common idioms, such as “to lose face,” “face the facts,” “face the music,” “poker face,” and “face value.”

This is a straightforward dream in which its interpretation is in line with its aspect. If the face was smiling, it signifies pleasant new friends, experiences, and/or financial gains. Unpleasant or grotesque (unless amusingly so) faces portend loss.
To dream you are washing your face denotes a necessity to atone for some past indiscretion; better make amends!
To see the faces of strangers signifies an approaching change of residence. If the main feature of your dream was a facial blemish, you will have a variety of new opportunities to risk your reputation; if you can’t resist at least be very selective.

You meet the world with your face, and everything that is occurring inside of your consciousness is either revealed or hidden there. When your face or the face of another is featured in your dream, consider any interpretation you make through the lens of how authentic you are being in your daily life. Whatever is occurring to a face in a dream will add layers of distinction to your interpretation. Marks, scars, pimples, or boils are all examples of ways in which the face inadvertently reveals things that are below the surface of a darker nature.

If you dream of injuring your face or you dream your face suddenly looks different than usual, you feel insecure about who you really are or how you appear to others. You recognize that you aren’t showing others your true self.
If someone else’s face gets injured or looks different in your dream, you suspect someone isn’t what he or she appears to be.
