How Your Gut Health affects Your Skin

Your gut health is often one of the best ways you can improve your skin and cure any skincare concerns.

The skin is not only the largest organ in your body but a useful one for determining your overall health. Visible signs of poorly skin such as acne, eczema, rosacea and dryness can indicate a deeper problem with your gut and can, in fact, be a symptom of an imbalance.

Believe it or not, improving your gut health is often one of the best ways you can improve your skin and cure any skincare concerns, so if you've been struggling with your skin you may want to look at the rest of your body for remedies.

What is the gut and what kind of gut problems are there?

The gastrointestinal tract, otherwise known as the gut, hosts both good and bad bacteria (your microbiome) and ensures your body is absorbing the nutrients it needs and excreting the waste that it doesn't. However, an increase in bad bacteria over time can mean a breakdown of the gut barrier, leading to 'leaky gut syndrome', meaning all sorts of nasties can get in.

An excess of bad bacteria can be caused by lots of factors, including a bad diet full of processed foods and not enough fruit and vegetables, high stress levels, lack of sleep and some medications.

Gut issues can lead to discomfort, food allergies, an increase in stress and anxiety, inflammation or skin problems.

How does poor gut health affect the skin?

Whilst some people struggle with the uncomfortable symptoms of poor gut health, others appear to have no symptoms. However, this isn't always the case and skin conditions are said to be a hidden symptom which many don't consider.

Studies going back as far as 100 years ago have linked many skincare conditions with poor gut health and there has been a steady increase of people enjoying clearer and healthier skin thanks to the treatment of a poorly gut.

The main reason why skin conditions develop due to poor gut health is that once the wall of the gut starts allowing harmful bacteria through, the body automatically begins to try to remove the bacteria from the body as quickly as possible, and the skin is often the quickest and easiest exit route. This process triggers off the immune system which can cause redness, swelling and irritation.

The body also starts to prioritise the direction of the good bacteria and transports it to important organs such as the heart. The short supply of important nutrients means the skin, hair and nails are cut off.
