Does Meditation Help Our Skin? Featuring Yogi Mahgul Kabir

Taking care of your skin after a long stressful day is a great way to wind down and destress. Self care is particularly important in this day and age, it is necessary to take out time and actually spend it on yourself without rushing or any sense of urgency – this is what mindful meditation is. We got to know more about what meditation actually is and how it can be beneficial for our skin from the yoga teacher Mahgul Kabir who is also the owner of soulmat in Lahore.

Meditation is a mental practice where you bring your thoughts to the present and focus on the emotions and thoughts you are experiencing at the moment. According to Mahgul “Meditation is a tool that allows you to disconnect from everything around you and within you, the daily busy-ness and the constant chatter in your head, which is often the cause of stress in our lives.”

Having meditation techniques incorporated with your beauty & skincare routine can have a positive impact on your mind, body as well as skin, these techniques improve not only your mood but it also helps in slowing down the aging process. Mahgul explains how meditation can work in favor of our skin “when we are stressed, our body produces a lot of cortisol in the system which tends to wreak havoc on all other systems, be it skin, digestive, lymphatic or cardiovascular, really just any system within the body. So once we start meditating and are able to deal with the daily pressures of life a little more effectively, health of all systems, including our skin improves”.

 “Many people who meditate tend to have glowing healthy skin and healthier bodies, just because all systems at large start working a lot better with less cortisol within the body.”

Here is how you can incorporate meditation in your every day beauty regime:

  • Turn off distractions

To start off, you need to make sure that you are not constantly being distracted by a text message or notifications on your phone, you need to put your phone away to really start the relaxation process. You can even put on a relaxing music to get in the mood.

  • Have a facial massage

Facial massage will truly help in creating a meditation like experience for you. You can use a jade roller, or even your fingers to relax tense facial muscles with a facial oil. Massaging the face increases the blood flow and help in collagen production which makes the skin healthier & brighter.

  • Incorporate essential oils

Essential oils can also help to calm down your body & mind and be in the present moment. There are multiple ways you can incorporate essential oils in your beauty routine. They have anti inflammatory properties, they work well with acne breakouts and help with hair growth as well. To know more about essential oils, click HERE
