How Meditation Can Support Skin Healthon Friday, April 13, 2018
Meditation is quite common and widely practiced in the Pacific Northwest. Its benefits include lowered stress levels, increased mindfulness, and better overall health, especially for your skin.
Dermatologist Jennifer Chwalek, M.D. of Union Square Laser Dermatology, explains how she realized the major skin benefits that can come with meditation,
“I noticed everyone I knew who had been meditating regularly seemed to look substantially younger than their real age,” Dr. Chwalek says. “I was aware of studies showing meditation could be used to treat hypertension and anxiety but I wasn’t aware of all the research showing it’s positive effects on longevity.”
The research Dr. Chwalek refers to are studies examining the effects of meditation and its ability to strengthen vital telomeres—the protective caps at the end of chromosomes. Telomeres can significantly shorten with age as well as chronic stress. Still more studies show that meditation can cause changes in our very genes, suppressing the response of inflammation-promoting genes. This results in youthful, luminous skin and an overall uplifted mood.
