How can gut health affect your skin and why?

Your diet and the optimum levels of vitamins and minerals are the most important factor to getting a clear complexion because the gut microbiome, which is the bacteria living in your digestive system and intestines, influences your overall health which ultimately improves your skin.

Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health, especially your digestive system. Everyone's body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy.

Did you know antibiotics kill 'good' bacteria as well as 'bad'. If you need antibiotics, make sure you eat lots of foods that boost your microbes afterward.

Without probiotics, antibiotics can sometimes wipe out the protective gut bacteria, resulting in diarrhoea, which can then lead to bad skin.

What you're putting into your body in terms of food and nutrients can have a huge impact on your gut and if you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, this again can have an impact on gut health and exasperate problems.
What you eat isn't just nutrition for you, it also feeds the trillions of bacteria that live in your gut.

More than 80 percent of the body's immunity is in the gut and we all have hundreds of naturally occurring bacteria in our gut. Some of these are harmless 'good' bacteria that help with digestion, while others are not so harmless 'bad' bacteria, which may contribute to causing disease and can affect our behaviour and mood.
If you have an unhealthy gut it can have a big impact on your overall health and especially the appearance of your skin, including spots, inflammation, eczema, and rosacea.

The gut microbiome is the bacteria found in your intestines that influences your overall health, especially your skin. Our 'second brain - The solar system to our body! Feed it well.
