All through my beauty coaching and time at Pai, I’ve learnt many bizarre info in regards to the pores and skin. ‘Pores and skin reminiscence’ needs to be up there as one of many extra uncommon and surprising of them.

Mnemodermia, as it’s formally identified, is a chronic state of hypersensitivity in a selected space of pores and skin lengthy after an preliminary response has disappeared.

In essence, the pores and skin “remembers” previous sufferings and bodily replays them afterward in life.

My analysis into the topic was sparked by a pub dialog with a pal.

She informed me the story of an ex-soldier who had been stationed within the desert. Lengthy after returning house, he would inexplicably develop sore, chapped pores and skin between his toes on the identical time yearly.

A dermatologist informed him that this phenomenon was truly his pores and skin remembering the sensation of the sand in his military boots inflicting an abrasion between the toes.

As is commonly the case with uncommon and unpredictable situations, mnemodermia is often related to pores and skin reactions triggered by trauma or excessive experiences.

Due to its psychological roots, there may be extra anecdotal than scientific proof to show pores and skin reminiscence’s existence.

That is one other instance of the pores and skin’s hyperlink with the thoughts. As I blogged last month, the consequences of stress recurrently play out on our pores and skin’s floor, so it is sensible that trauma would instigate an analogous course of.

As skincare specialists we attempt to know every thing we will in regards to the physique’s largest organ, however in the end there may be all the time one thing else to be taught.

Maybe that’s what makes the job so attention-grabbing!
