It's no surprise that good dietary habits are the primer and foundation to glisten and glow of your skin! So if you are tired of buying and trying new makeup products that promise to be the highlight of the century and the answer to all your problems, maybe it's time to look inside. Literally! Look at what you eat, you ARE what you eat. So if you're consuming sugar, processed foods, fast foods and other junk on a daily basis, don't wonder why your skin isn't your best friend.
Gut health is very important, not only for your outer beauty but for your inner beauty. Sometimes, in spite of consuming a lot of nutrient-dense foods; our body cannot properly absorb the nutrients from the foods that we eat. Your gut has millions and millions of good and bad bacteria present inside it. The levels of these bacteria present in your body keep fluctuating on a daily basis; depending on what you eat. It's these bacteria that are responsible for the absorption and rejection of certain foods. Maintaining the balance between the good and bad is what keeps your gut healthy. Strengthening your gut and making sure the levels of good and bad bacteria are balanced in there is the key to staying healthy and looking good.
Consuming the healthiest foods all day every day is useless if your body is unable to reap the benefits of that food. This is primarily because of bad gut health! So how do you maintain gut health? The answer is probiotics!
Probiotics are bacteria, and before you get grossed out; they are the good kind of bacteria. The kind your body needs! Consuming probiotics on a daily basis has numerous health benefits. They treat infections, promote healthy digestion and boost your immune system. Consuming foods rich in probiotics is the easiest way to get the recommended dose of probiotics into your system.
If you want to kick it up a notch, combine prebiotics AND probiotics to send your gut into optimal performance. And there's no better time to do this than your first meal of the day...breakfast!
Combine your morning cereal with some of these ingredients to make your breakfast into a wholesome skin glow-boosting powerhouse. This will also ensure that you stay away from those mid-morning munchies! Moreover, nutritious breakfast will keep you full for longer and boost your energy levels all day while the pre and probiotics will work from the inside out to maintain your gut health and keep your skin glowing!
