A quick Google search reveals some mind boggling figures:- “The global cosmetics market was valued at 307.69 billion dollars in the year 2020 and is now forecast to grow to 463.5 billion dollars by 2027.” ~Don-Alvin Adegeest 11th Feb 2022. Despite this, the fact remains that our thoughts, feelings and emotions create instant chemical reactions in our bodies. The most obvious and noticeable being on our faces.
The real answer lies far beneath the surface.
Mr Adegeest goes on, “workplace stress reaching near-epidemic levels is driving the interest in skincare products…
Moreover, there is a growing desire for health-promoting and self-care products.”
He’s right of course, but topical solutions can’t hope to work when the answer lies deep beneath the surface. It isn’t visible to the naked eye! It is much more than skin deep. It’s in our inner-worlds!
You might say skin degradation is just part of the ageing process. You could argue that your family always had skin problems or always aged badly. You could be comparing yourself to the airbrushed images that surround us. But when you stop and analyse these thoughts, you realise that they are all just beliefs. How do you know they are really true?
If thoughts, feelings and emotions cause skin problems and ageing, wouldn’t it be logical that they can also reverse them? Thoughts, feelings, emotions and traumas are stored in every cell of our bodies. If we continue to carry them around, they weigh us down. You can see in a person’s face when they feel “dragged” down, their skin portrays the way they feel inside.
Your Skin is Amazing!
It is waterproof, washable, elastic and self-mending. It protects you against water loss whilst allowing you to perspire. It defends against infection and exposure to foreign substances and regulates your temperature! But…
There Is A Lot More Going On Beneath The Surface Than Meets The Eye!
There is a lot more going on in (and under) your skin than meets the eye! Your skin is the physical boundary of your body. It also reflects the state of your emotional and energetic boundaries. If you don’t have strong emotional and energetic boundaries the condition of your skin will reflect that.
If you are irritated or someone is “getting under your skin” should you be surprised if your skin is also irritated? If your skin is inflamed, itchy, red, hot or angry, stop and think where in your life you feel that way too. If your skin is hard or thickened what is it trying to protect you from? Your skin is just reflecting your inner emotions.
If you feel vulnerable or under attack, no matter how much you try to “put on a brave face” or present a perfectly polished veneer to the world, eventually your skin will come to your defence in the only way it knows how. It will manifest the physical evidence of your emotional pain by creating acne, redness, itching, hardening or flaking.
What if we consciously & deliberately changed our thoughts, feelings and emotions?
What then if we changed our thoughts, feelings and emotions? Sent a different message to our skin? What if we sent loving, healing thoughts? Wouldn’t that make more sense than trying to heal from the outside with expensive creams or very expensive and invasive surgery? I certainly think it would be worth a try (from lovely messages below, others seem to agree with me)!
Let go of the belief that you have “bad” skin. Your skin is always doing the best it can to protect you.

Soothe Your Skin Meditation
“I just listened to your skin meditation – Awesome!! I already feel more gratitude for my skin for protecting me with my “spots”. They have served me well in the bigger picture, actually. So thanks for helping me see that”. Ms C.C
“The “attack” if you will subsided and went away certainly as quickly (1/2 a minute) as the cold water. Hi Barbara, I’m a new subscriber 3/4 months, 76 years old, general health good, no medications. My most troubling health issue is skin/dermatology eg Brachioradial and probably Pruritus etc etc from mild to quite bothersome from time to time (every few days I have a good “flair” up). Prior to finding you web site I was treating my various skin conditions with various lotions and for the Brachioradial / on my arms the Best was very cold water for 4/5 minutes, actually brings immediate relief, lasting a few hours. Prior to finding your site I was using a Meditation app from Meditation Oasis and had been using it generally prior to going to bed/sleep a few times a week, I found it pretty good, but had no real long term experience a year or so with meditation. I’m sure I bumped into your site probably Googling around skin problems, issues etc etc etc. Subsequently I purchased your Beyond Affirmations most particularly Soothe Your Skin and also Healing For Your Heart.
I’d like to pass on a couple of my findings, most specifically to the Brachioradial (when it flares up it’s almost an attack) while having an “attack/itchiness/arms for what ever reason I decided instead of the cold water treatment I’d try your app, I actually used the the Relaxation and well being (15.58) introduction Meditation the “attack” if you will subsided and went away certainly as quickly (1/2 a minute) as the cold water. I’ve repeated this 20+ times in the past month eg works every time? Actually I find it more convenient than the long Soothe Your Skin, whatever works.
I wanted to pass this along because this Brachioradial can be a real problem for many seniors and there is very, very little the dermatologist really know about it or more importantly how to treat it (mine for certain is a pinched nerve in my cervical 5/6 disc). Anyway please pass along if anyone asks, one thing for certain trying what I did certainly can’t cause “any” harm”. Mr G.K.
“Awesome, Awesome, Awesome! I had some sort of bug bites on my legs that were super itchy that got healed right after meditation. Can barely see the marks today!” Ms S.G.
“I feel such peace after listening. I have been listening to the soothe your skin meditation for a couple of days now, and I absolutely love it. I have heard many guided meditations and affirmation audios, and this one is by far my favorite. It is great how you start with releasing resistance and emotional baggage, and move on to clearing and positive affirmations (since you are fully ready to receive them)! I feel such peace after listening. Thank you!” D.A.
“I make “no” mistake about it Your Meditation has helped me immensely control this problem and that’s the simple truth.As an aside I believe you app cost me $9.98 and it’ll last my lifetime, sure beats a 10oz bottle of sticky lotion that only half works, runs out in a month and costs $20.00 + –”.
