Many of us are aware of the certain connection between the epithelial (skin) and nervous systems. For example, when someone is stressed or even burned out for a period of time, he or she might notice that her skin is becoming dull with uneven skin tone and lacking elasticity; also, some red pimples might appear. Moreover, being under emotional stress, many people develop some forms of persistent skin issues such as rosacea.
Does this sound familiar?
So let`s explore briefly how does this connection work.
In the very early embryonal stage, all our organs develop from the particular layer of embryo cells. There are three embryo layers: endoderm (the proximal layer), mesoderm (middle layer), and the ectoderm (the distal) layer. The skin and nervous tissues are developing from the same embryonal layer, - ectoderm. These tissues stay connected during the whole life of a person reflecting the condition of each other.
What would be our conclusion? To keep the skin healthy and glowing it's very important to pay close attention to our emotional well-being. Sleeping enough, meditating, spending time with interesting people, developing the personal coping strategies, being aware of the individual limits, - all of these strongly contribute to the radiant, glowing, and young looking skin.
