You can often tell our lifestyle by looking at our face. Perhaps we have slept too little, drunk too much alcohol or simply had a lot of stress. The skin looks tired, red, pale or blemished. Of course, diet also plays an important role. Either way, our skin often reflects our lifestyle habits.
But it is not only our lifestyle that leaves its mark on the skin: The condition of the gut can also have a demonstrable effect on skin health. Studies have now shown that patients with skin diseases also have changes in the gut microbiome. In addition, our psyche also plays an important role. Stress primarily has a negative effect on our gut microbiome, which in turn affects our skin.
What many people do not know: Research has shown that patients with chronic skin diseases such as rosacea, neurodermatitis and psoriasis often have dysbiosis – an imbalance of bacteria in the gut. Either harmful bacteria have gained the upper hand and/or the diversity is greatly reduced. So can we improve our skin appearance by taking care of our gut? It’s worth a try! That’s why today we have a simple, easy and delicious breakfast recipe for you that feeds your good gut bacteria. Keep your gut microbiome happy and your skin glowing!
Combining prebiotics, omega 3 fatty acids, zinc, L-glutamine and vitamins E and B can help improve the appearance of the skin. The myBioma skin tip: The Power Skin Porridge. You can prepare it the night before and enjoy it in the morning:
Mix oat flakes, flax seeds, psyllium husks, poppy seeds and all spices. Optionally, half a banana (source of vitamin B) and dates can be added as a sweetener. Pour a dash of hot water over the whole thing and let it swell for 5 minutes. Then stir in the almond yoghurt and leave in the fridge overnight. Just before eating, sprinkle the chopped almonds on top and enjoy.
We want to remind you once again that stress plays an essential role in gut and skin health. So pay attention not only to what you eat, but also how you eat. Take enough time and focus on your food, avoid distractions like TV, mobile phone or laptop. You can also turn it into a kind of meditation. Before you start eating, take three deep breaths. Now start eating and pay attention to taste and texture. Enjoy your food!
