The flawless complexion and smooth skin displayed by celebrities and pop stars can leave us conscious about our looks (or the lack thereof). This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Being concerned about scars, zits and marks can be considered natural. These can be a nuisance in our daily lives and take a toll on our self-esteem and confidence levels.
Skin ailments like eczema (inflamed patches of skin that become red and itchy) or psoriasis (the rapid build-up of skin cells) are all very common in many parts of the world, including Asia. They can affect people from different walks of life, at different ages and under various circumstances.
While there are treatments in the market that promise to solve skin problems, not all of them are reliable. An ideal solution would be to approach professional dermatologists or legitimate experts who focus on skin ailments.
However, an alternate approach to dermatologic disorders such as eczema and psoriasis exists. It’s now commonly accepted that such problems carry a cognitive component. Could treating skin conditions effectively and safely be possible simply by tapping into the depths of your consciousness?
Unleashing your inner star
A story recently circulated online. It was about a freelance writer who struggled with chaotic periods involving work (projects and deadlines). She was excited that so many assignments were coming her way, but at the same time, this meant that she had work on her mind even as she lay in bed. This eventually led to moments of insomnia. Lasted for five straight weeks, they began to affect her work and general health.
Eventually, she learned about the use of hypnosis for sleep-related issues and decided to try it on herself. It was a low-risk method that was worth investigating. She committed to a hypnotherapy regimen. Gradually, she began to doze off quicker and stay snoozing longer.
The story doesn’t end there though. She began to notice an unexpected plus side to the hypnotherapy sessions; clearer skin.
Her oily forehead now looked more evenly textured and hydrated. Her entire face was no longer peppered with stubborn pimples that lasted months. It seemed that her visit to the hypnotist to deal with her sleep issues had a very pleasant spillover effect on her skin.
The connection between skin and stress
Her story isn’t the only documented proof of skin clearing through hypnotherapy. Many people have reported better, brighter and clearer complexions after hypnosis. By achieving a shift in consciousness through hypnotherapy, various skin conditions including acne might be quite effectively reduced.
Research into the stress hormone cortisol has shown that it can negatively affect skin sensitivity and skin inflammation. This then leads to skin flare-ups and many other problems such as rosacea and acne. Cortisol is directly connected to the triggering, as well as exacerbating of such symptoms.
Hypnotherapy is commonly used to help patients deal with severe stress and anxiety. Hypnosis can help you achieve a sense of relaxed serenity, reducing stress levels and helping relieve you of some (if not all) of your skin symptoms. Hypnotherapy can help modify behaviour (which means that it can help you control the urge to scratch an itch. It can also help promote healthy behaviour and lead to a better complexion.
If you are suffering from eczema or other skin ailments, consider using the power of your consciousness. Hypnotherapy can help you with clearer skin. You just might experience many other emotional, physical and psychological benefits too.
