Do you experience acne, eczema, dry skin, facial redness, psoriasis and/ or rosacea? These skin conditions are affected by your digestive system, poor gut health and gut functioning. Our skin is the largest organ on our body, it’s also the only organ we can see and touch. Therefore, it can be great indicator of what is going on inside our bodies in relation to our gut.
What does the gut actually do?
The gut is responsible for absorbing nutrients, housing both helpful and harmful bacteria. It’s primary role is to absorb nutrients from the food, which is required for growth, repair and normal functioning of our bodies. Secondly, stomach acid and digestive enzymes help break food down into small molecules which are absorbed by the body and lastly the lower gut excretes substances that the body doesn’t need anymore. If substances are left in the lower gut they can be reabsorbed by the body, which can cause a level of change to the bodies functioning.
Bacteria living inside the gut is critical to keep the gut healthy and functioning optimally. It influences the health of your body and health of your skin. If there is not a good ratio of good and bad bacteria in the gut problems can occur. The gut has cells held together by tight junctions which do not normally allow substances through. A lack of good bacteria can lead to an overgrowth of bad bacteria which starts to damage the walls of the gut, leading to gaps. This is called leaky-gut syndrome.
How does the gut effect the skin?
When the body doesn’t receive enough nutrients due to poor gut absorption it will prioritise nutrients to our essential organs such as the heart, brain and liver. Our hair, nails and skin are the first places we will notice changes when nutrient supply is low. If stomach acid production is low it is common to notice facial redness. If there are not enough digestive enzymes the skin can be left feeling dry and dull which can cause eczema and psoriasis.
When harmful substances make their way into the bloodstream due to a leaky gut the body looks for the quickest way to remove them which is through our skin, causing redness, swelling and breakouts on the skin. In addition, if your bowel movements are not regular this can also cause skin problems as the unwanted substances are being reabsorbed and then excreted through the skin.
So after learning a little bit about the gut,
It is clear that the health of your digestive system is a key component to having glowing, and clear skin!
