If you have acne, I'd ask you to take a moment to think about your digestion system. Do you experience bloating, gas and a heavy feeling after eating too? Commonly, a link can be found between digestive problems and acne.

What You'll Need

  • Good fats, lots of whole foods and some friendly bacteria

What You'll Do

  • Here are 4 reasons, and solutions, why your acne might be coming from your gut:
  • 1. Bad bacteria - these bacteria can release toxins into the blood stream which are then released via the skin.
  • 2. Reactive and inflammatory foods like dairy and gluten - problems digesting the proteins and sugars found in diary and gluten could be resulting in a problem known as Leaky Gut. Trail excluding dairy and gluten from your diet and see if symptoms improve
  • 3. Zinc absorption in the gut not efficient - zinc is integral to the structure of your skin, load up on nuts, seeds, dark leafy vegetables, mushrooms and beans
  • 4. Not enough goods fats in your diet - fat is our friend, it will help maintain the integrity of our skin and prevent blemishes. Include eggs, avocado and olive oil daily in your diet

Tips & Warnings

  • It can take a while to your body, and skin, to adjust to naturopathic remedies. Give these foods and probiotics a few months to work and see if they make a difference.
