Promoting healthy gut and skin microbiome with nutrition
For a healthy clear skin, include more of the following foods:
- Choose probiotic rich foods daily – found naturally in foods such active cultured yogurts, kefir, tempeh, miso, kimchi or kombucha to balance skin pH and microbiome. These natural detoxifiers also build healthy gut microflora that destroy harmful bacteria and toxins before they reach and irritate your skin. Look for natural yogurt with no additives or sugar and added probiotics such as bifidobacteria.
- Include prebiotics food more often – artichokes, dandelion, leeks, asparagus, bananas, garlic and onion are excellent food sources of prebiotic.
- Try an supplement – dietary supplementation with pre and probiotics are effective in management of acne and for both dermatitis and eczema in children and adults. Pre and probiotic supplement may be taken to boost gut health and skin health.
With good nutrition and supplementation, you can nourish from within to promote a healthy gut and skin microbiome and bring out your healthiest clear skin.
