What if I told you that the health of your gut affects the appearance of your skin? It’s true! That is why treating your skin externally is not the only way to achieve radiant and healthy skin. At Sol Nutrition, we like to go deeper and treat issues at the root cause.
If you are experiencing inflammation on your skin, your gut is also most likely inflamed. Skin issues such as acne, rosacea, and eczema all find their roots in your gut. Have you ever suffered from a breakout after noticing that your tummy is grumpy? This happens because your gut’s inflammatory responses and your skin communicate. The longer that the problem continues, the more imbalanced your gut will become, and the more you will see it on the appearance of your skin.
How do I know if my gut is healthy?
When you have a healthy gut, you will have healthy skin, a healthy digestive system, and a strong immune system. When there is an imbalance in your gut, you will most likely notice it in a range of issues such as:
- Excessive gas and bloating
- Constipation or diarrhea
- Frequent headaches
- Low energy levels
- Mood imbalances
- Food intolerances
- Autoimmune diseases
You would be surprised how many problems can stem from gut and liver health - including depression, fatigue, inflammation, acne, poor focus, and poor indigestion. To get a proper body refresh, we suggest implementing a combination of Sol Nutritions Healthy Liver with Belly Reset. These supplements can also be purchased as a bundle here at a discounted price.
How can I promote a healthy gut?
Practice healthy stress management
The gut is just as connected to your brain as it is to your skin. Has some bad news ever hit you straight in the gut? Then you already know how stress and anxiety can affect your gut health. You can read our blog on how to Manage Your Stress here. There is no way to completely eliminate stress from your life, as that would be impossible. The goal is to learn how to accurately manage your stress levels for a better life.
Limit processed food
Making changes to the way that you eat can result in drastic changes to the appearance of your skin. Minimizing or eliminating alcohol, refined sugars, and processed foods will allow your gut to restore itself. Eating unprocessed fruits, vegetables, and antioxidant-rich foods will nourish your skin from within. Examples of foods high in antioxidants include:
- Dark chocolate
- Goji berries
Keep an eye out for food intolerances
Unlike some allergies, food intolerances are not life-threatening, however, they can cause uncomfortable problems for those who are affected. Food intolerances are commonly diagnosed by elimination diets to narrow down which foods are causing unwanted symptoms. Common food intolerances include:
The food intolerances listed above are some of the most common types, however, there are many other ingredients and foods that people may be intolerant to. Cutting out some of these foods and then adding them back into your diet one at a time, will help you determine if you have a food intolerance to any of them. Taking a supplement such as Belly Reset will encourage the natural production of probiotics for proper digestion. This popular formula helps rebalance your gut health, calms cramps, reduces bloating, and relieves gas so that you can enjoy your day without having any belly issues.
Oral hygiene is important
Did you know that your gut health is also affected by your oral hygiene? Inevitably, what goes through your mouth, will also end up in your gut. Dental problems have the potential to leak a growth of bacteria into your gut. Remember to brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day and keep up with your dental cleanings.
Check your medicine cabinet
Prescription medication including Accutane, birth control pills, and anxiety medication can also take a toll on the health of your gut. Just like antibiotics, these medications can not only wipe out the bad guys but also the good guys in your gut health. The chances are likely that you are not getting enough probiotic foods in your diet. By adding more probiotic foods into your diet, your body will reap the benefits of better gut health. Examples of probiotic foods include:
- Goat cheese
Understanding your gut health is an essential part of becoming blemish free. You are now equipped to recognize the signs of an unbalanced gut and how to treat it naturally.
