What is Psychodermatology?
Put simply, psychodermatology is a science that addresses the connection between mind + skin.
Let's make this real...
You know that feeling when you feel fresh and rejuvenated on holiday? When you have some time out from life and obligations and you feel nothing but rested and at-ease? Ever noticed how your skin looks a little livelier? It’s calmer, clearer, more invigorated. Upon your return home your friends and colleagues feel compelled to tell you how well you look. This is the mind + skin connection in action.
The science behind psychodermatology
Psychodermatology, a rapidly evolving discipline in psychosomatic medicine, shows that our mind and skin are inextricably linked.
When the mind experiences stress it puts into motion an inflammation cascade that can have lasting implications for our health but also for the appearance and function of our skin.
This is why when we distance ourselves from stressful situations and invest time in strengthening our state of mind, our skin responds positively.
Similarly, how our skin looks and behaves can impact how we feel. It’s a perpetual loop and traditional skincare can only do so much.
Addressing the skin + mind connection with our new skincare range
As a pioneer in the field of aromatherapy, and with wellness at the heart of our brand, we are uniquely qualified to respond to both our mental state (and so influence the signals sent from the brain to the skin), and the skin itself, restoring balance between the two.
We have created a new facial skincare range that is powered by BioActive, our unique skincare complex.
We created our BioActive complex to help address the negative impact personal & environmental stressors have on the skin.
Our BioActive complex harnesses the power of Essential Oils, Botanical Actives and Skin Stress Relief Technology, working together to bring your mind + skin back into balance.
