Healthy Gut = Healthy Glowing Skin!

What is the connection between your gut health and your skin?

Whatever happens in your gut will reflect on your skin and according to experts, our microbial balance affects the state of our skin. We all forget that our skin is the largest organ in our body and it is a vital functioning organ.

Skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, and acne can be symptoms that something is happening inside your body– especially in your gut.

A poor diet or unbalanced microbes in your gut can lead to pesky breakouts. That’s why if you’re wondering why your skincare regimen doesn’t work for you, it’s time to focus your attention on your gut.  A healthy gut means you have the right bacteria in your gastrointestinal tract called the gut microbiome. The microbiome has far-reaching health effects and can even help with acne, eczema, and psoriasis. The gut microbiome helps to maintain and protect the intestinal barrier, which reduces the toxins from entering the bloodstream and potentially reaching and affecting the skin.
