Chapter 5: Psychosomatics of the skin

Description    

In this chapter we dive into the field of psychodermatology, which examines the relationship between mental health and the skin.

We begin by challenging the traditional conception of skin diseases as merely superficial, and instead explore how the skin serves as a visible reflection of our emotional and psychological well-being. We highlight how the skin is intrinsically connected to the central nervous system and acts as a medium through which we experience and express our emotions.
