I’m a big believer that your emotions are connected to your health. I’ve witnessed it my own life and the life of others and have read many books on the subject because I find it so very fascinating.

Since I do skin care, I thought it would be interesting to post what emotions are connected to certain skin conditions according to Louise Hay, author and renowned expert on the subject. We all know that stress is one of the biggest skin agers so it makes sense that emotions can be connected to other skin issues. This doesn’t mean that if you have one of these issues, you’re guilty of having a negative emotion. There are many things that contribute to skin disorders such as diet, bad products, genetics and environmental toxins. This is just something to consider.

In general the skin is connected to protecting our individuality. Skin problems can occur from anxiety, fear and feeling threatened. Here are the more specific conditions and their emotional connection:

Acne – Not accepting self.

Blackheads – Small outbursts of anger.

Boils – Anger. Boiling over.

Eczema – Breathtaking antagonism. Mental eruptions.

Pimples – Small outbursts of anger.

Psoriasis – Fear of being hurt.

Sagging lines – Sagging thoughts. Resentment of life.

Whiteheads – Hiding perceived ugliness.

The summer months aren’t known for producing dry, irritated skin like in the the winter months but this time of year isn’t without its problems. People experience many issues in this hot, sunny season so it’s important to keep up a good routine. At a time when you’re showing the most amount of skin, take the time to keep it healthy, hydrated and gorgeous.

One thing that seems to increase with the temperature is the number of pimples people get. We load on sunscreens that our skin is not accustomed to and produce more sweat, which can easily lead to pore congestion, blackheads and pimples. A gentle mechanical scrub such as  Petal Purity Exfoliating Facial Cleanser can be used daily to gently remove this unsightly build up. Sweaty or oily skin can be controlled with an astringent toner such as  Rose Dew Facial Toner or Orange Blossom Facial Toner.

Sunburns and heat rashes are also very common skin conditions in the summer. The best way to soothe and heal these areas is to use a natural lotion that contains healing and anti-inflammatory properties as well as hydrating oils and water. A great choice for this is Touchy Feely Body Lotion as it contains soothing, cooling herbs such as rosemary and lavender. Lotion also makes your skin look soft and supple and it is a good idea to apply it daily.
