Acne is one word that puts a sour taste in my mouth. Not only do I fight it every day looking in the mirror, but many of my clientele within the last year also express concerns with those one-eyed- monsters that invite themselves overnight. With a high percentage of problematic skin being on the rise it has sparked my interest in trying to find common facts. Many factors play a role in our skin’s complexion for men and women. I am sure you have been told multiple times that drinking excessive amounts of water or cleansing twice a day is key to clear skin. This may help, however, more studies are finding that what we put into our gut is what reflects the image in the mirror.
Prebiotics and probiotics are calming to our GI systems. How can one capsule full of good bacteria change an appearance you may ask? The natural flora found in our guts is affected by everything we digest throughout the day. Simple and complex carbohydrates create uneven levels of good bacteria leaving our GI tracts inflamed.
Probiotics may contain millions of harvested “good bacteria” that enter our system fully loaded to recover any area of damage. Not only can prebiotics and probiotics assist the damage of our internal health, but they can also assist with our largest organ- the skin.
