Gut Health for Glowing Skin with Becky Crisp

Your skin is your largest organ + here at Wild Spirit HQ we think it's the most important organ in your body.

Unlike other organs, you can easily touch, see + check your skin health daily, so it’s a great indicator of what’s going on inside your body – especially your gut. Acne, redness, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, and rosacea are all skin conditions which can have the same root cause; poor gut health + gut function.

So it makes sense that the health of your gut is fundamental to having glowing, clear skin but what does it actually mean?

When I talk about a beautiful + healthy gut, I'm not talking about a slim waistline. The gut is responsible for absorbing nutrients, housing both helpful + harmful bacteria + excreting waste. Making improvements to the digestive system has been scientifically shown to improve skin health, immune function, mood + energy levels.

The primary role of the gut is to absorb the nutrients from your food that your body needs for growth, repair + normal functioning. There are many things that inhibit proper absorption of nutrients + when the body doesn’t receive enough nutrients, it begins to prioritise which organs will get the few nutrients that are available.

Our hair, nails + skin are usually the first places in which we notice change. This is because when nutrients are in short supply, the body drives nutrients towards essential organs like the heart, brain and liver.

The first step in healing your gut and skin is to make sure that your body is getting all of the nutrients it needs through a diet including a variety of coloured plant foods.

So Wild Spirits, here are my top tips to care for your digestive health + key items you should include every day in your regime for glowing skin:
  • Drink fresh lemon juice in a cup of warm water before each meal.
  • Chew your food slowly!
  • Eat a variety of coloured whole foods including vegetables, fruits, whole grains + healthy fats
  • Eat probiotic containing foods such as; sauerkraut, kimchi, kombucha, fermented dairy, miso soup, or take a good quality probiotic supplement.
  • Avoid processed foods, refined sugars, alcohol + gluten.
  • Eat a high fibre diet, including lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, legumes, beans, nuts and seeds.
