Better Digestion, Better Skin

There is a direct connection between what you eat and how you look. The most obvious, of course, is weight.  We all know that if you eat too much food, you’ll have to spring for some bigger pants. This can get expensive, and frankly, most people aren’t thrilled when they put on a few pounds.

The quality of what you eat can also affect your skin. Sugary foods can spike insulin. And high blood sugar has been linked to acne. Also, gluten may cause skin rashes in certain people. So although it may seem counter-intuitive, pampering your digestive system may be a nearly direct path to having clean, glowing skin.

How Probiotics Help Your Skin 

You gut microbiome is a delicate ecosystem unto itself. It’s supposed to be filled with beneficial bacteria that help you digest your food and remove toxins. However, your gut environment can become unbalanced, and harmful bacteria can run roughshod. The growth of bad bacteria can cause a host of problems, one of which is chronic low-grade inflammation.  Adult acne, eczema and rosacea  have been linked to inflammation, so it may be possible to  control acne by keeping your gut flora in good, working order.

There is also a bit of evidence that probiotics may help improve collagen levels which could mean fewer wrinkles and less sun damage.
