The skin is a unique organ which is constantly renewing itself, and is also the body’s heaviest (3/4 kg) and largest organ. The skin cannot be considered to be something that is simply “superficial”, in fact, a psychosomatic view tells us that it is much more than that
It represents the dimension in which our way of being connects with the world; the point at which our life interacts with the external world. In fact, the mind, the brain and the skin communicate by means of special physiological messengers, known in neurobiology as neuropeptides, through fine nerve terminals in the epidermis. Thus the individual’s sensorial experiences are transferred, in every instant, to the central nervous system to be elaborated, interpreted and memorised from a more or less pleasant perspective.
During adolescence when there is an approach to new feelings regarding relationships, the epidermis reacts on the basis of the sensitivity of the subject, and the choice of cosmetics is very important.
Some products recommended are: Bioderma Nickel Tested Sensibio for sensitive and intolerant skins; Sensibio H2O cleansing face lotion is soothing and alcohol free; Bjobj teen cosmetic line, and in particular Teen face cream and Teen Nickel Free shower bath.
Also recommended are products from Pacifica, an American company that produces natural cosmetics that are cruelty-free, vegan and gluten-free: Sea Foam Complete Face Wash, Island Vanilla Body Wash, California Jasmine Body Butter. Whereas, from Dr Hauschka there is a choice of light Rose Cream for sensitive skin, Melissa cream for combination skin and cleansing milk for a soothing action.
In conclusion, a quote from Albert Einstein: “Everything you can imagine, nature has already created.”
