Skin is a fantastic communicator that often reveals our unspoken emotions to the world. Our faces turn pink with embarrassment or white with fear. Complexions can appear sallow, dry or as if aged overnight, especially during difficult times. Meditation addresses the underlying issues that create skin problems in the first place. An emerging field of research called psychodermatology studies the interaction between mind and skin, looking at the effects of emotions on the skin as well as disorders that have skin manifestations. By bridging the gap between our emotional and mental states with our overall health, meditation has many benefits.
