Abraham Lincoln said, “Most people are about as happy as they make their minds up to be.” Just as this statement rings true when it comes to finding your own happiness, so does maintaining healthy skin! In addition, healthy skin and happiness are interrelated. No kidding- Its true!
There are a million examples of how your skin reflects your feelings. Probably, one of the best examples of this would be when you feel embarrassed. Your skin turns hot and red. Similarly, think of how you look when your come back home from work – all tired. Your skin is definitely not glowing, or perky. It actually looks like how ‘you feel’- tired and dull. Now, what happens when you take a hot shower? Your skin reflects your fresh and rejuvenated feeling 🙂
Extrapolate this same principle to healthy skin and happiness. Think back and tell us, have you ever seen a happy person showing unhappy skin?
Happiness inside the body
When you feel elated and happy, the body releases its happy hormones – the endorphins, oxytocin, serotonin et al. While these hormones are responsible for a whole lot of other functions as well, they enhance the skin’s ability in repairing and renewing itself. They make us more active and help the core functions of our body work better. This results in proper circulation of blood providing a healthy dose of oxygen to all parts of the body, including the skin, making it look younger, radiant, hydrated, and healthy.
Negative emotions aka stress, anxiety, sadness, fear – especially for a prolonged period of time – release hormones that hamper the production of collagen and elastin, making the skin dull, increasing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, breakouts and saggy skin.
Happiness all over
Is it simply about keeping a smile plastered on? Not really. But it can work as a constant reminder to shift away from all those worries, stress, tension and negative feelings.
When you let go of all those negative emotions, not only does your skin feel the positive physiological benefits, but you also experience peace of mind, an increased ability to appreciate the things around you and you feel relaxed. These feelings again, have a number of benefits like better sleep, better health and well-being, and confidence. Moreover, when you feel confident, your skin surely shows it. Its a dominoes effect!
