WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS AND HOW CAN IT HELP US IMPROVE OUR SKIN AND NATURAL RADIANCE?

As you may already know, the beauty of the outside comes from within! This tells us a lot about what we should aim to do to improve our skin, by focusing on everyday habits that will revitalize and rejuvenate our skin. By getting rid of imbalance of bacteria in your gut, this will allow a better release of toxins from your organism to be able to absorb nutrients effectively.

 

Therefore, to balance the levels of bacteria in your gut, the use of a probiotic can be highly efficient. As we are increasingly affected by bad habits in our daily routines, factors such as poor food choices, emotional stress and lack of sleep can contribute to the unbalance of bacteria. This causes a weak immune system where skin problems and allergic reactions can develop.

 

And what is a Probiotic exactly? Probiotic is a substance that exists in specific supplements as well as foods such as dairy products and even vegetables, which stimulates the growth of positive microorganism in our gut. For the dairy lovers, yogurt is the best probiotic source as it is full of good bacteria. Kefir is also a good alternative to yogurt, as it tastes wonderful for your breakfast smoothies!

Those wanting a more vegan approach can opt for Kombucha, which is increasingly trending at the moment for all the right reasons! A tea-based beverage, it is naturally detoxing and naturally sweet. The perfect swap for your English breakfast tea for the probiotic dose!

However, if the above doesn’t work for you, you can also opt for probiotic supplements at the recommendation of a health practitioner. The most popular are Bifidobacterium or Lactobacillus-based.

Also, including vegetables and fruits in your diet as well as raw nuts and seeds is highly important alongside your probiotic intakes. They provide you with the essential nutrients that complement your probiotic consumption, which is needed for detoxification and consequently a healthier skin.

And finally, it is important that we use probiotics carefully when consuming these types of foods from supermarkets. They are sensitive to environmental conditions as they are living bacteria, therefore you should always check that your product is fresh and not out of date. You should also check with the doctor what the right dose is for you, but some yogurt and berries don’t seem like a bad idea for breakfast now, does it?
