Don't Forget About Your Scalp Microbiome
How often do you consider your scalp as a part of your beauty and health regimen?
This article by the "Secret Life of Skin" explains how powerful ingredients like coconut oil can aid in maintaining a healthy scalp and modulating the scalp microbiome.
"The scalp, an often-neglected area of beauty and personal care, is essential for our health and wellbeing. The condition of the scalp determines the state of the skin in this area as well as our hair, with a healthy environment preventing irritation and disease and promoting optimal hair growth. However, as well as the scalp itself, it is also important to consider the scalp microbiome."
FEED YOUR SKIN
Supercharged with Vitamin C to strengthen and promote collagen growth, these face and body balms can be used on the entire epidermis, from the under eyes to the soles of the feet. Natural butters, oils, and fresh Vitamin C Serum armor your skin barrier against free radicals, leaving your whole body hydrated, protected, and luminous.
How Intestinal Permeability is linked to Skin Inflammation
Our intestinal lining acts as a critical line of defense, preventing toxins and gut bacteria from passing into our bloodstream.
This barrier can weaken due to intestinal permeability and toxins or undigested food particles pass through. This promotes an immune response where the body attacks the foreign substances, resulting in a state of inflammation.
Since our skin is so closely linked to our gut (through the gut-skin axis), this altered immune response can promote the development of skin conditions like acne, rosacea, and psoriasis.
It's important to remember that everything we consume and put into our bodies and onto our skin affects us from the inside out.
