Brain/Skin Connection

The skin and brain are connected for life, so what goes on in your brain will show up on your skin.


Did you know that the skin and brain are formed from the same embryonic tissue in utero? The skin and the brain are connected for life and constantly communicating with each other. Think of these examples: when you are scared the color drains from your face, and when you are embarrassed your skin turns red.


So, what goes on in your brain will show up on your skin. We have scientific data to back up that simply changing your mindset can impact your skin.
