Fresh faced, dewy makeup looks are all the rage on social media, but what if you are dealing with skin problems like acne, rosacea, etc? These makeup trends can help you achieve the look you want, but how about really clear, glowing, and healthy skin the natural way – inside out?
Learn How To Improve Your Skin Microbiome … And How Your Skin Is Linked To IBD Disorders!
What many do not know is that the skin, as the largest organ in the body, actually has its own microbiome – just like the intestine. Is correct! This means that fungi, viruses, mold, etc. that can affect our gut microbiome can also affect our skin microbiome – and actually live on our skin!
Accordingly Ann Shipley, Md., “The skin has its own microbiome with around 1 billion organisms that live on every square centimeter of the body. “
How do we keep this microbiome healthy? I’m going to share some tips with you today.
Remember that the intestines and your skin are connected!
Most of us are familiar with the brain-gut axis connection, but what is new to many people is that there is a gut-skin axis! This means that the brain speaks to the gut and the gut speaks to (or shows up on) your skin. Whatever skin condition you have, we can now be sure that it is related to your gut. And this is really great news because now you can use your energies and focus on getting to the root of the problem.
Make Sure Your Colon Health Protocols Are Correct! Keep up with your gut health plans, such as For example, Jini’s most commonly followed protocol is her Wild Oregano Protocol, as outlined in her Healing Guide: Natural Treatments for Intestinal Infections.
Tip 1: reset your intestinal flora
To restore your intestinal flora and strengthen your intestines (which we at LTYG specialize in!) Jini recommends using an anti-pathogen in conjunction with a strong probiotic. An anti-pathogen such as wild oregano oil, olive leaf, potentized garlic, etc., is used to eliminate any bad bacteria in the gut, and the probiotic replaces the lost bacteria with good, beneficial bacteria. This helped Jini reset and heal her bowels when she was dealing with IBD, and these two steps alone will greatly increase your bowel health – and help cleanse your skin too!
The gut can have a huge impact on what happens to your skin. Of course, there may be other external factors, but usually when you get that big pimple, your body is trying to tell you something! Treating the bowel helps treat the “root” of your skin problems.
Interestingly, the location of the acne in acne can be a sign of the imbalance in your body! If you’re struggling with this, it may be worth researching which organ is out of whack based on where the acne occurs on the face.
I also highly recommend reading Jini’s acne home remedies! Per Jini, naturopathy, Chinese medicine and homeopathy claim that every skin disease is an indication of an imbalance in the intestine. So, to treat acne or pimples, you need to normalize digestion and build beneficial intestinal flora (lots of good bacteria and no yeast growth) while also using topical treatments to eradicate the infection in your pores.
However, be careful when supplementing with an anti-pathogen because if you don’t detox properly, it can severely affect what are known as “facial flare-ups”. If detox is your topic, I recommend you watch this video: Detox Your New Year – 3 Tips & a Surprise!
Tip # 2: diet
Now that we can see a clearer picture of the connection between the skin and the gut, what you put into your gut will also be visible from the inside out. A clean, organic diet can do wonders for your gut and skin! This is because what you eat can feed the bad bacteria in your system, and then inflammation occurs in your gut – and it shows in your skin! For example, fat can increase the oil and sebum on your skin, leading to further breakouts.
“Now you might be sitting there and thinking,” Yes, but I really don’t want to give up my ice cream … even though I know my body can’t take ice cream. I just can’t give up. “
To this I say: But what does it cost you?
Just something to think about. It’s your decision! But if you want that beautiful skin and gut, Cheetos can’t exactly be on a diet. I hate to say it, but you just can’t !!
In addition to building up a healthy gut flora, here are two skin-specific topical treatments that can be very helpful for acute facial flare-ups while treating the root problems in the gut.
Skin specific tips:
Skin tip # 1: ozone
In general, if you are unfamiliar with ozone, it is a very effective healing therapy. Basically, it is oxygen that is sent straight to the area it is being applied to.
According to this clinical studyWhen ozone comes in contact with body fluids, the resulting reactions produce more proteins and red blood cells. This increases the oxygen supply to your body!
One of the cool things about ozone is that it leaves good bacteria behind and kills the bad – as a natural antibiotic. Ozone can be very effective in treating skin problems, even scars, herpes, eczema, or acne.
This line actually has ozone IN their skin care line which I think is great! This oxygen improves hydration, restores the pH in the skin and cleanses the skin of bacteria that may form with the “bad guys” on it. Using these topical forms of ozone can REALLY help the skin. Many swear by these products, including me!
Skin tip # 2: colloidal silver
At LTYG we love COLLOIDAL SILVER! It seems that even the skin care world is catching up with the versatility and effectiveness of colloidal silver, as I recently discovered This interesting article on skin care products that contain colloidal silver!
Colloidal silver can be extremely valuable in skin care. Personally, I use colloidal silver straight from the bottle – topically all over my face, as well as a spot treatment if I get a blemish while detoxing my body (like every month).
Take that away …
In short, you too can get a dewy-fresh dumpling by treating your body as a whole and using these tips. Our skin goes through a lot as it protects our bodies in amazing ways, so let’s give it up for our SKIN – and treat it as best we can!
