Is gut health linked to your skin’s appearance?

If you’re like most people, you’ve probably heard of the importance of good gut health. But did you know that it can affect the appearance of your skin?

When your gut microbiome isn’t functioning correctly, it can lead to acne and rosacea— and that’s not scratching the surface of what it can do to your overall health.

We believe that if you’re unhappy with how your skin looks, it’s time to look at what’s happening inside your body. Our gut health is directly tied to our overall well-being. When we’re not taking care of ourselves in a holistic sense, it shows up on our skin. That’s why it’s so important to ensure that your gut health is as healthy as possible— and that means looking beyond what goes into your mouth.

And that’s where we come in.

We have a suite of brand-new advanced machines to help keep your gut healthy and happy so that you can enjoy clearer, more radiant skin. Helen’s cutting-edge biotech machines include:

·         Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT, oxygen therapy).

·         Infrared Sauna Therapy (light therapy, photobiomodulation).

We have a lot to teach you if you’ve not heard of these! And, if you have, I bet you haven’t heard of how much these two mechanisms can:

• Reverse IBS.

• Repopulate your microbiome.

• Fix ‘leaky gut.’

And, in the process, give you interstellar skin! Your gut makeup affects your skin health in many ways. Your skin is an organ, just like your brain or liver, and it has a complex relationship with the body’s digestive system.

The health of your gut lining can directly impact how well your skin functions, especially when it comes to exfoliation and hydration levels. This means that if you want to maintain clear and healthy-looking skin—and who doesn’t?—you should be taking care of the inside of your body as well as the outside! Healthy gut = healthy skin

You might be thinking: Why is Helen talking about the gut? What does that have to do with skin?

The answer is simple: A healthy gut is linked to healthy skin. And an unhealthy gut can lead to an unsightly complexion. So let’s look at what science has revealed about what innovative machines can do for your digestive tract. The gut-skin connection is one of the most exciting topics in regenerative aesthetics.

Hyperbaric Oxygen for gut health and our microbiomes Hippocrates actually stated nearly 2500 years ago, “All disease begins in the gut.” One method in which we can heal both our skin and the gut is through oxygen.

Hyperbaric Oxygen, at its simplest, delivers ~100% purified oxygen to the body via the breath at increased atmospheric pressure, thus allowing the blood plasma to absorb up to fifteen times more oxygen. Multiple scientific studies have shown the promising potential of using oxygen in treating intestinal disease. Research has shown that after nine days of Hyperbaric Oxygen, tissue oxygenation within the gut increased by 5-fold, and the gut microbial community shifted towards a more favourable landscape.

Knowing what we know about the skin-gut connection, IMAGINE what this could do for your appearance. The relationship between skin and gut health is not a new concept. In fact, it’s something that the ancient Egyptians knew about thousands of years ago and worked with in their beauty routines.

Infrared sauna, and what it means for your gut health?

Red light therapy has been proven to have anti-ageing benefits. It can stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of wrinkles by stimulating fibroblasts, which are responsible for producing collagen. By using an infrared sauna, you are supercharging your mitochondria. Meaning that the infrared light your body is taking in when sitting in the sauna is penetrating the skin and entering all your tissues, organs and cells.

What does this mean? This means that your cells have more energy. The photons of light energy from this next-generation technology are absorbed by the mitochondria and used to generate adenosine triphosphate (ATP), known as the universal energy currency.

What can your body do with this added energy?

Replicate, repair and rejuvenate the gut.

The gut lining is constantly shedding and regrowing, and such a mechanism needs new cell lines. To do this requires tremendous amounts of energy. Repairing any ‘leaky gut’ issues also requires a monumental amount of energy, which you can acquire through taking some sessions in our infrared sauna.

To sum up, a healthy gut is the key to having glowing and healthy skin. Your gut is home to about 100 trillion bacteria that can either harm or benefit your skin. Your gut’s health is also paramount in fighting serious problems like cancer and heart disease. Taking care of your gut means helping yourself because people with a great gut live longer.

Hopefully, this post has opened your eyes to areas where you need to improve to have a more radiant body and skin! As you can see, a healthy body is priceless and ordinary products will not provide the same results as high-end ones. The intestines work day and night to prevent dangerous microorganisms from entering the body. The skin is the defence mechanism to keep all microbes, pathogens and toxins away. This is why understanding skin care and the gut is so important, more than ever before. It isn’t about having beautiful skin; it’s about having a radiant glow from within, starting with looking after your insides.
