Gut Health and Skin Connection

Gut health has been a topic that we have become more familiar with in the last couple of years due to recent research regarding the importance of a healthy gut microbiome for the immune system as well as the brain and gut communication.

But did you know that there is also a connection between your gut and skin health?

Gut health refers to the balance of microorganisms that live in the digestive tract. Looking after the health of the gut and maintaining the right balance of these microorganisms is vital for physical and mental health, immunity, and the health of your skin.

There are several ways we can support the microorganisms in our body, and a main factor is our eating habits.

Choose a healthy eating pattern including:
• a variety of vegetables from all the subgroups
• fruits, especially whole fruits
• grains, at least half of which are whole grains
• a variety of protein foods, including legumes, nuts, and seeds
• oils from plant sources

We can also support our gut through our skincare as our skin is our body’s largest organ and has an absorbency average of 70%. Our microbiome is like a fingerprint– individual to us – as it is determined by factors such as age, gender, diet and hygiene, as well as environmental factors such as climate and pollution. A well balanced, diverse and healthy skin microbiome helps protect the skin.
