You’ve likely heard of the expression of “wearing your heart on your sleeve,” but exposing your true emotions goes beyond facial expressions like a toothy smile or shedding some tears. Your mental state feeling can actually mess with your skin. So if you notice your face is dull during periods of extreme sadness or your undereye bags are extra pronounced because you’re regularly over-tired, you’re picking up on the skin-mind connection. It’s also the exact concept behind NEUR|AÉ, a new skin care developed by Sisley Group Laboratories brand that’s built around 10 years of neuroscience research, specifically zeroing in on the link between the brain and skin, which they’re calling “neurocosmetics.”

The concept of your emotions showing up on your face isn’t a new one. The aforementioned idiom exists for a reason, and there’s even science to back it up. Some studies have found that higher levels of mindful awareness were associated with reduced psychosocial distress and improved dermatological quality of life. Stress, in particular, can do a number on your complexion. Studies show that the increased level of cortisol the feeling produces can increase skin inflammation, increase itching, impair skin barrier function, impair wound healing, and suppress immunity.

Along with stress, NEUR|AÉ is aiming to tackle the effects of tiredness and sadness have on your face with its products formulated around the brand’s proprietary NA3 TECHNOLOGY. The three arms that make up this technology include: neuro-ingredients that treat the physical effects of these emotions, neuro-fragrances that scent the formulas and are created in line with aromatherapy principles, and neuro-textures, which through its own testing, the brand says they’ve found product textures to evoke an emotional response. In short, the products don’t just improve the physical manifestations of these feelings, they also lift the spirits through their scents and the act of putting them on your face.

The product lineup includes a cream and booster for each of the three emotions, plus a universal serum that acts as a restoring base treatment. Keeping sustainability in mind, all of the formulas are comprised of at least 95% ingredients of natural origins. The creams come in refillable jars made with 15% recycled glass and the entire line comes in boxes made with 40% recycled paper.
