A Healthy Gut = Healthy Skin

A Healthy Gut = Healthy Skin

Invest in taking care of your gut if you want to see healthier skin.✨

Glowing skin and good health do begin in your gut. So investing your time and money into healing your gut will be beneficial for the long run. 

Taking care of your gut will help to simplify your skincare routine and help achieve healthy glowing skin. 

Think of a garden. Your gut is like the soil. The soil needs the right nutrient levels and bacterial balance to support the plants. For our skin to be healthy and radiant, we also need the right bacterial and nutrient balance in our gut. 

If we're not getting enough nutrients or digesting our food properly due to poor gut health, our skin won't receive the nutrition it needs to support it. An overgrowth of bad bacteria can contribute significantly to skin problems, from acne, rosacea, premature aging of the skin, and lackluster skin. Where there is gut inflammation, there will be skin inflammation. 

Stress, processed food, antibiotics, alcohol, cigarettes, sugar and pollution can all compromise good bacteria and feed the pathogenic bacteria. 

A few lifestyle changes that will help improve your gut health... 

1. Eating whole foods

2. Reducing stress

3. Avoiding refined sugar & foods

4. Eating more prebiotic foods & using digestive enzymes
