Do you think your skin problems may be a matter of the mind? I think the answer is YES because stress and skin problems go hand in hand. Whatever the emotional trigger -- work pressures, relationship issues, financial problems, life transitions, or depression -- stress can cause these trouble-making chemicals to flood skin and wreak havoc.
Mind body relaxation and calming activities like meditation, yoga, t'ai chi reduce the flow of neuropeptides, leading to less reactive skin. Decreasing stress, by whatever means -- a once or twice a month visit at spa dallas (that's total zen!) -- can also help your skin better tolerate the numerous insults that occur throughout the day (perspiration, irritants, allergens, even makeup!). De-stressing is your key to a calm mind and clear skin.
