My skin- gut connection journey- part 1
I became a facialist in 1993 and I worked in Europe and Asia for 15 years before opening my skin clinic in UK in 2008.
To my surprise, I noticed that UK is a common place for rosacea, adult acne , teens acne , eczema and psoriasis, than in any other parts of the world I worked.
In the same time, UK population has a high rate of tummy complains.
In my practice over the years, I noticed that over 90% of my skin challenged customers have tummy complains :
• Lactose intolerance
•Difficulty digesting certain foods
Other challenged skin types customers suffer from anxiety, insomnia or depression.
Did you know that the gut and the skin are made of the same cells, called epitelial cells?
Knowing this, is no surprise that when the gut is irritated or unwell , it’s only a matter of time until the skin will show similar signs.
Remember, the skin is our biggest organ, but we often forget about it, until we suffer with a skin condition!
The skin has many rolls which keeps us alive , but today we will talk about its role as
•Eliminator of toxins
The body gets rid of toxins through breathing, kidneys, colon and the skin.
Now, many of us :
•don’t drink enough water,
• have a diet poor in fibre
•don’t have a daily bowel movement
•use cosmetic/ body products full of synthetic ingredients
No wonder our body is full of toxins!
But there is hope! – read part 2 of the blog and learn how we can help ourselves.
And while in lockdown, we offer Zoom Holistic Skin Consultations.( Just book yourself online, and I will schedule a zoom meeting at your the requested time) .
If you need help, I am only a click away.
