Skin is like magic and it repairs all by itself most of the times. You can cut it during surgery and it grows back together in a week. You can puncture it with a needle, and it fills back in to stop bleeding within a matter of a few minutes. Skin is miraculously fast at creating the new cells, removing the old ones, repairing the structural damage and re-establishing the blood flow.
Our skin helps in our survival, yet we complain about it almost all the time. It tells a lot about how we feel and communicates with us but we have never cared enough to listen to it.
It is a wonderful mirror signalling what is going on with our body and mind. Whether we are anaemic, dehydrated or malnourished, our skin lacks its healthy glow, exposing the signs very clearly. If we are sad and forget to smile, our skin literally shows it.
The skin has spread far and wide across our entire body, so it is natural that every thought we think, every word we say, and every intention we have passes through it. It is constantly in contact with our inner workings, making it obvious that there is no wonder that our skin knows very well about our inner self more than us.
Skin reflects how we feel about ourselves, thus projecting our inner truths. It forms what we perceive as ourselves and delineates us from the rest of the world. In short, skin is our boundary.
Skin speaks to us through the location of acne, eczema patches, dry skin, changes in hair growth, pigmentation, wrinkles and stretch marks.
No matter how your skin speaks to you, it always provides a message to be appreciated. Hearing that message and responding to it is what going to support your skin issue to a deeper level than any other ointment or treatment.
Invest in your skin and listen to it carefully, because it’s going to be with you for a really long time. Remember, no matter what the colour of your skin is, it’s all about what you feel on the inside.
Be happy and keep your skin healthy!
