scents, emotions, and skincare
There is a deep connection between emotional wellbeing and the scents that we smell.
The scientific study and application of this knowledge is known as Aromatherapy!
At Visual Chemistry Skin, it’s not only our aim to provide you with the best products to use for all skin types, but also to educate you on all matters surrounding skincare. What skincare smells like MATTERS, and we’re here to tell you why.
Fragrances and Memory:
Unlike many of our other senses, our smell response is linked to the emotional center of our brain which deals with memories and sentiments. Because of this connection, smells directly correlate with past experiences, enjoyments, sentiments and passions.
Do you ever feel like you’ve been transported back in time after smelling something familiar? Does the smell of rain, an old-growth forest, the ocean, or cookies baking take you back to a fond memory?
Since smells can be linked to our emotions and memories, they take you back to whenever and wherever you were when you first experienced that smell.
How Scent Triggers Work:
Smells signal our limbic system. The limbic system is the part of our brain that associates memory with emotions.
The positive emotions we receive from memory-jogging fragrances have been scientifically proven to lower stress levels and improve mental health.
Because smells have a direct connection to the area of our brain that deals with emotions, smells have the absolute power to change our moods and our minds while aiding in our psychological wellbeing.
So What Are Smells?
Smells aren’t simply just smells… they are feelings, memories, emotions and much more!

LAVENDER & PEONY:
Our Resilience Night Cream is scented with natural Lavender and Peony aromas.
Lavender is known to calm the mind. It quiets insecurities that come from negative thoughts and emotional patterns. The scent of lavender can dispel the deep-seated fear of feeling unseen or unheard. This scent is great for individuals needing to release tension and constrictions.
Lavender comforts people with anxiety, stress, sadness, and sleeping disorders. With its light floral aroma, Lavender is simultaneously a sedative and a stimulant.
Peony scent supports the body in calming itself and finding relaxation. It’s used in aromatherapy to unblock emotions that people hold onto.
You know those suborn thoughts that keep you awake at night? Racing thoughts, anxiousness and sleep issues are how external stressors show up in the body. It’s not only you that deals with these annoying self-doubts. We all have thoughts like these from time to time and scents like Lavender and Peony can ease your mind!

When applying our Vitamin C Serum, the amazing aroma of Citrus immediately comes to the surface.
We’ve had several loyal customers mention, “The Vitamin C Serum is so bright and clean smelling that it literally feels like I’m rubbing a freshly-peeled orange on my face!”
Citrus is used in Aromatherapy to provide emotional balance, bring about a light and bright disposition and to give people an outlook full of more positivity. Citrus is important to use when feelings of anger, anxiety or fatigue arise.
Cheerful Citrus smells are often referred to as “liquid sunshine,” because they are fresh, uplifting, relaxing and aid many people with depression.
This scent also promotes concentration while calming and clearing the mind. Studies have even shown that dispersing citrus scents through office spaces increased worker’s productivity by an astonishing 54%. By simply sniffing the Citrus in our Vitamin C Serum, you will feel the immediate effects of boosted energy and heightened alertness.
You’ll love lathering this Citrus-filled serum on your face. It’s invigorating, wakes you up, and allows you to take control of your day.

CUCUMBER & COFFEE:
Our baby-blue-colored, cooling Restorative Eye Cream has such a soft and soothing scent. When you open the jar and take a deep breath, immediately the light aroma of a crisp cucumber on a nice summer day comes to mind. Cucumber is a naturally relaxing yet very invigorating smell.
Cucumber is refreshing and uplifting. It sets your imagination free and sends you off to better days, lush meadows, wetlands and wooded forests. The cucumber scent reminds us to dream big while invoking feelings of happiness and ultimate freedom.
Crashing waves on a crisp breezy day come to mind when smelling our Restorative Eye Cream. This cream leaves behind the scent of springtime reminiscing, time spent in the garden, fresh memories and carefree summer days.
Cooling and calming, cucumber is one of the mildest scents and thus can be used for many therapeutic purposes. It’s also an important source of antioxidants and has been proven to have many health benefits.
Doesn’t the smell of coffee sometimes seem to wake you more than the act of drinking it? Studies have proven, in fact, the smell can be just as powerful as the drink itself (although, you can’t overdose on the smell). The scent of coffee, alone, increases mental performance and one’s ability to focus.
Let the smell of coffee lead to a boost in your productivity, without having to take a sip! You’ll feel emboldened upon using our coffee-scented Restorative Eye Cream. This boldness will follow you long after use.
