I’m a big believer that your emotions are connected to your health. I’ve witnessed it my own life and the life of others and have read many books on the subject because I find it so very fascinating.
Since I do skin care, I thought it would be interesting to post what emotions are connected to certain skin conditions according to Louise Hay, author and renowned expert on the subject. We all know that stress is one of the biggest skin agers so it makes sense that emotions can be connected to other skin issues. This doesn’t mean that if you have one of these issues, you’re guilty of having a negative emotion. There are many things that contribute to skin disorders such as diet, bad products, genetics and environmental toxins. This is just something to consider.
In general the skin is connected to protecting our individuality. Skin problems can occur from anxiety, fear and feeling threatened. Here are the more specific conditions and their emotional connection:
Acne – Not accepting self.
Blackheads – Small outbursts of anger.
Boils – Anger. Boiling over.
Eczema – Breathtaking antagonism. Mental eruptions.
Pimples – Small outbursts of anger.
Psoriasis – Fear of being hurt.
Sagging lines – Sagging thoughts. Resentment of life.
Whiteheads – Hiding perceived ugliness.
