Your skin and your gut have quite the symbiotic relationship, what happens to one affects the other. Ageing, inflammation, glycation, acne, the list goes on, is a skins’ response to what’s going on within the body.
Whether that be caused by a medical condition, inflammatory condition or even what we put into our bodies, it can make all the difference.
Firstly let’s break this down;
Ageing, as we age the collagen in our bodies naturally declines. This collagen is what keeps the skin nice and plump and firm.
Inflammation can be caused by many things; it is usually a histamine response to something foreign within or around the body. In relation to gut health and skin it is more of an internal response; some foods can cause the lining of the gut to become irritated and then the tight junctions within the gut wall start to separate. This allows endotoxins and even some undigested food into the bloodstream thus causing an inflammatory response. Low grade, chronic inflammation is a leading cause of premature ageing, also known as inflammageing.
Glycation is the cellular damage that happens when exposed to refined and processed sugars. This is usually seen as a cross hatching of lines on the skin, much like how a hash symbol looks. It is a key cause of premature ageing.
Acne, when triggered by the gut, can feel like a never-ending battle. Trying to find the root cause of gut caused acne can be difficult. Seeing acne that is quite inflamed, angry, sore, and stubborn it is usually the gut that is responsible and needs some corralling.

When you look at your skin, what do you see? Clear, radiant skin, or inflamed, reddened skin? This can be an outward showing of the imbalance within the gut. We need to encourage a flourishing gut microbiome to keep the skin and body happy and balanced.
