Skin conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis are typically a sign of something else going on in the body, particularly your gut.
It’s easy to forget that your skin is a essential functioning organ. With an average surface area of more than 21 square feet and 6 per cent to 10 per cent of your body weight, it’s actually the largest organ. Skin conditions like acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis are typically signs of something else in the body, particularly your gut.
The gastrointestinal area in a healthy human body houses billions of micro-organisms including beneficial bacteria and fungi building a system of ‘micro-biome’, which has a strong affect on a range of conditions from lowering internal bodily inflammation (which prevents various very dangerous diseases and disorders like cancer, asthma and other auto-immune disorders from happening in the first place), controling a healthy appetite, developing healthy skin and hair, effectively aiding the critical battle of optimal weight management and healthy skin.
There are several factors in our lives which makes it even harder for us to maintain a healthy gut, namely:
* Unreliable lifestyle
* Lack of enough sleep
* Unhealthy diet
* Excess amount of stress
Here are certain things that you can do for better-looking skin.
* Maintaining a schedule for all our daily activities like professional work, leisure, exercise and time for relaxation including casual time-off, we can terribly reduce gut-related problems and get much closer to retaining a healthy immune system.
* Sleep or the lack of it may absolutely create havoc in our immune system. Working men and especially women in traditional Indian societies are more affected to the nasty consequences of sleep destitution over a prolonged period due to work-space as well as household responsibilities.
* Munching on ready-made or junk food is okay for us once in a bit, but relying on readily made and processed foods over a longer period may most exactly result in damaging the entrails, and overall gut health.
* Diets rich in fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, seafood, healthy fats have been proven for years to be totally beneficial for our gut micro-biome and have a long-term positive brunt for our health.
* While we may not be able to limit the volume of stress, there are steps that can be incorporated to ban the damages caused by it, such as regular light exercises, short mindful meditation, active socializing post-work daily.
* Keep your skin clean with daily molting. You can use the products made for this ambition or go low-tech with a warm washcloth followed by an astringent, such as witch hazel.
* Keep your skin protected from the sun by wearing sunscreen every day.
* Opt for non-comedogenic skincare products that don’t clog pores.
* Always moisturise your skin, even if it’s oily. There are moisturizers designed especially for this skin type.
