Our skin is not an exclusive organ independent on its own, nor is it a complete internal organ like the brain or the heart. Rather it forms the outermost layer that is the most exposed surface to any external factors. For those unversed, skin constitutes the largest organ of our body. Estimates indicate that an adult body carries some 8 pounds (3.6 Kilograms) and 22 square feet of it. Just an intimation that we can’t be making anything light of our skin going forward. It protects us from microbes and other harm-inducing elements, helps regulate body temperature and permits the sensations of touch, heat, and cold.
Facial skin is the most visible part of our body. Since it acts as a direct barrier against all the external environmental factors, it also bears most of the brunt. Being the most sensitive of all the variations of skin on our body, it is also most reflective of the quality of our internal, physical and mental well-being. The (Epidermis) or the outer layer of the skin is normally 0.1 mm thick, whereas the skin around the eyes is 0.05 mm thick. Being the thinnest skin area across our entire system, this skin is most susceptible to aging, dullness, acne, pigmentation, and other related flaws.
When it comes to the health, and vigor of our facial skin, both internal and external factors are of prime consideration. None can exist in isolation from the other. What we eat reflects in the quality of our skin. For a lot of people, eating anything with dairy, gluten, animal product or oil in it immediately leads to a pop of acne on their face.
Regular, uninhibited boozing, eating junk increases the toxin levels in the blood that reflects adversely in the texture of our skin. Women with regular intake of hard drinks often have sullen, dehydrated skin that looks dull, insipid, and lifeless. The damage that regular smoking causes to the skin is almost inexplicable. We rest our case here.
Another factor that majorly contributes to the deteriorated state of the skin is the polluted, foul environment that we live in. From the contaminated air that we breathe to the water that we drink, it is all crammed with germs and degenerative microbes. Expeditious lifestyles that we lead these days almost steadily lead to pressing stress levels, psychological disturbances, and emotional turmoils. All these factors combined together do enormous damages to skin. The increased levels of the stress-regulating hormone, Cortisol, in our body lead to a lot of complications. Chronic stress condition further increases cortisol, that leads to increased oil production in the skin glands, resulting in clogged pores and acne breakouts.
High levels of the hormone also cause dryness. The body loses its ability to retain water. This causes dehydrated skin where the skin lacks moisture and turns flaky and consequentially dark spots and wrinkles begin to surface. Dryness, wrinkles, premature aging are just the signs of our skin telling us that all is not going good.
For this reason, skin experts robustly advocate indulging in some form of relaxing activities such as meditation. Mindfulness Meditation has been gaining well-deserved, lightning popularity in recent years. The form of meditation has been particularly of interest to the urban young population of the country that often needs to pause and reflect through their fast-paced lives. To reduce stress and all the related emotional and mental turbulence, it is important to turn inwards rather than outwards. And mindfulness meditation just helps to enable the process.
What is Mindfulness Meditation and how is it restorative to a healthy skin condition
Mindfulness meditation is the art of meditating while observing each of the thoughts that naturally pass your mind space. Rather than discarding the thoughts outrightly, it preaches to take note of all that is instinctively entering into the mental state, and let it move out calmly. This training exercise teaches you to pace down racing thoughts, be calmer in both mind and body, and let things pass by as they are, rather than making painstaking efforts to alter the occurrence or predisposition of things as per your will.
The technique may vary, but in principle, mindfulness meditation involves a breathing practice and holistic awareness of body and mind. The intent is to take the edge off long long-persisting stress and anxiety and uplift mood and the overall state of happiness and complacence.
Those, who practice this exercise of tranquility, experience extreme peace, and a state of being unaffected by any outward botherations. The same calm reflects in the aura of their external demeanor as well. Their skin looks soothing and internally glowing with the radiance of positivity. The detoxified condition of their thoughts and emotions transcends into the luminosity of their skin that shines clean and bright with the innocence of internal lucidity.
