3 Ways to Improve Gut Health for Younger Looking Skin


When it comes to anti-aging skin care, the primary focus tends to be on applying topicals to the skin’s surface.

But there’s another part of the body that plays an essential role in your skin’s smoothness, plumpness, and youthful glow: Your gut.

Mounting research shows that digestive health plays a vital role in your skin’s youthful structure and vitality. This is because when your gut flora is out of balance your gut can’t properly digest key vitamins and nutrients, like vitamin C, vitamin A, and collagen. And without these nutrients, your skin becomes more wrinkled and saggy.

You’ve likely heard already how eating probiotic rich foods, like yogurt, kefir, kimchi, and sauerkraut, is a great way to introduce beneficial bacteria directly into your gut.

So here are 3 lesser known ways to improve your gut health and your skin’s youthful glow:

1. Eat Manuka Honey for Gut Diversity

Eat Manuka Honey for Gut Diversity



Raw manuka honey from the manuka bush is rich in unique compounds clinically shown to rebalance gut flora. These compounds help decrease bad bacteria like E. coli and H. pylori while allowing beneficial species to thrive.

Try adding 1-2 teaspoons of manuka honey to your morning tea coffee or smoothies to enjoy smoother digestion and smoother looking skin.

2. Hydration Flushes Toxins

Cut Back on Processed Sugar


Maintaining a well-hydrated digestive tract is essential for the elimination of toxins from your body before they feed unhealthy gut bacteria.

Try sipping warm bone broths, soothing herbal teas like chamomile or ginger, and fresh vegetable juices daily to stay hydrated while nourishing your gut with key nutrients.

3. Cut Back on Processed Sugar

The refined added sugars found in soda, bottled juices, packaged snacks and desserts are terrible for the delicate balance of microorganisms in your gut.

Processed sugars have been found to feed the bad bacteria linked to inflammation, leaky gut and rapid aging, while starving out populations of beneficial bacteria critical for skin health.

Try to restrict yourself to 20 grams of added sugar each day. And try sweetening your drinks with natural alternatives like monk fruit, cinnamon, or manuka honey instead.

Nourish Your Gut to Look and Feel Younger Each Day

Remember, a healthy gut is essential for absorbing all the nutrients your skin craves, while eliminating the pathogens that age your skin faster.

The key to a healthy gut is eating a balanced diet rich in gut enriching nutrients, and cutting back on the sugars and additives that can cause the bad guys to spread.
