What does your digestive system have to do with your skin health? Your digestive system performs a complex set of tasks in maintaining a healthy microbiome. The gut works to counteract harmful bacteria, aids digestion, breaks down toxic compounds, and synthesizes beneficial vitamins required for the whole body’s health—including your skin. When you experience digestive issues, this often manifests in various skin conditions, such as rosacea, acne, premature aging, etc. Fortunately, there’s a lot you can do to improve your gut health through eating fiber-rich and pro-biotic-rich foods and maintaining a healthy lifestyle that includes regular exercise and sufficient nightly sleep.
