Did you know that what you eat influences how your digestive system works and therefore can have a dramatic effect on your skin health?
Among other functions, our digestive system is the main place where we absorb beauty nutrients from our foods, as well as the main place where we dispel toxins through elimination. A digestive system that isn’t working optimally can cause everything from blemishes, acne, eczema, rosacea and rashes to wrinkles and a sallow complexion.
Some tell-tale signs of bad digestion are bloating, gas or stomach cramping after meals, but can also include indigestion and acid reflux – yes this is your body telling you it is not happy!
Processed and refined, artificial foods are the main culprit of a compromised digestion but stress and anxiety are also major disruptions to digestion.
When we are experiencing stress, our body goes into a “fight or flight” state which means it drops everything else it’s doing, including digesting food, to conserve energy. When we have chronic stress in our lives due to looming deadlines, family obligations, etc., our digestion suffers. Even if your diet is healthy, if you’re not absorbing the nutrients, you will begin to see skin, hair and nail problems.
