Is your face bigger than your hand? Keep in mind part of it is your skull for a hit location (Which I believe is the forehead), and neck is a separate location too. Here is the actual part of your face included in the -5:

Hit Location

With that in mind, hold your hand up to your face and tell me which has the bigger dimension. My hand is bigger.
