Thought that putting on another cream or serum is gonna really work its magic?
Beautiful skin really begins within.
Our in house Clinical Nutritionist Katherine Hay explains why beautiful skin begins in your gut and what you can do to nourish your skin.
So, skin health, and what I love about skin health is the direct representation of our gut health. So, what do I mean by this?
Our skin and our gut microbiome, so our bacteria, are in constant communication. It's a bio-directional communication with our skin.
So, not only ... our skin has its own microbiome, as well, so it harvests bacteria. If we are experiencing gut permeability, or what we call leaky gut, we are actually allowing toxins that aren't being absorbed by the gut for excretion to recirculate through the bloodstream, and usually it will manifest in our skin health.
This is where we start to see acne, psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema conditions, and this is all because of this systemic inflammation.
So, we wanted the removal of toxins through the gut because it's extremely important for our skin health, for that vitality, for that hydration.
Rosacea is another inflammatory skin condition that we see usually caused by poor food choices, and poor gut health.
So, I think it's really important to understand the brain ... the skin-gut access, and really focus on why. Why are we having skin eruptions?
A lot of the time, we are prescribed medication, but that's just treating the signs and symptoms, and not actually getting into the root cause of our skin health.
Also, with our gut, our hair, skin, and nails last place our nutrients are going to go. They're going to send them to our organs first. Our body will utilize them for energy production, neurotransmitter production, so our body kind of gives us a signal where it needs to go first, our beautiful nutrition from our food.
So, when we see poor skin health, especially, we know that the body is lacking those essential nutrients to be able to facilitate a healthy skin glow. So, we really want to look at our gut health, look at the bacteria.
Why is our gut permeability happening? Why are our gut junctions in our gut so open and inflamed and letting those toxins through?
And we want to work to really close those gap junctions, and bring back our beautiful microvilli. They're like finger-like projections that help us absorb all our beautiful nutrition from our food.
Beautiful glowing hydrated skin yep, we want that too!
