The gut-skin connection.
How much attention do you give your skin?
The money you pour into ageless potions and lotions adds up. I get it, I used to have a cabinet dedicated to my fountain of youth potions.
It wasn’t until I focused on reviving my poor gut health did I start reducing the amount of products I lathered on my body.
One key element I’ve learned in my gut health research is it’s not only about what you eat, but rather what you absorb. This comes to both skin and digestion. When you have a healthy gut you will obtain the skin-supporting nutrients vitamins A, C, E, K2, B3, B5 along with the minerals selenium, zinc, silica and sulfur and omega-3 fats.
The products you absorb through your skin also directly affect your microbiome. Personal care product effects last for weeks and produce highly individualized responses, including alterations in steroid and pheromone levels and in bacterial and archaeal ecosystem structure and dynamics. (1)
If you’ve been dealing with chronic symptoms for years and it’s gotten to the point where these symptoms are always on mind and it’s affecting your lifestyle, consider investigating what you're absorbing through your skin.
