Gut microbiome and your skin health are twins…or at least first cousins. A healthy intestinal microbiome is key to happy skin.
The bottom line is that if you are having skin issues, it is absolutely critical to re-evaluate everything you are eating. Instead of buying yet another miracle acne cure product, consider tracking down a holistic nutritionist or functional medicine practitioner. This fundamental care will go a long way once combined with the right skincare products.
Addressing the deeper internal issues in conjunction with using the right products will ensure that you will be getting the most out of them.
Correcting internal microbiome can be complicated and difficult but worth the trouble. Essentially, it requires eliminating sugar, alcohol, processed foods, breads, grains, and many starchy carbs. Identifying food allergies and balancing hormones are a must. Lots of water and excercise are needed to move toxins out so that the new good bacteria can take their place. Ultimately, we each have the microbiome we deserve.
