We look for anything from vitamins to antioxidants in our skincare, but what we actually put in our bodies is also mirrored on the skin. The skin - gut connection is put increasingly more in focus, especially with regards to inflammation such as eczema and acne. This means not only identifying possible triggers (anything from processed food to sugar), but proactively managing inflammation with anti-inflammatory foods and herbs such as walnuts or turmeric. Probiotics (fermented food such as kefir or sauerkraut) as well as prebiotic foods (for example garlic and leeks) are also helping to restore a healthy gut. Bon Appetit!
