The gut-skin connection you didn’t know existed

With the wealth of information and education now available to us, we know that gut health is an emerging health focus that is rightly here to stay. But what does that have to do with your skin?

Imbalances of microbes in the gut have been shown to contribute to inflammatory skin conditions; conditions such as acne and rosacea have been directly linked to bacterial overgrowths in the gut, especially the small intestine.

With lifestyle habits that mean longer working hours and stagnant, still bodies, it has never been quite so important to support your system from all angles that cause it stress and inhibit function. That means regular desk breaks, walking, massage and movement. It means being mindful of your hydration and nutritional diversity.

How Slimyonik Air can help the skin-gut connection.

The SLIMYONIK®️ AIR Bodystyler is one such supporting tool to assist with the reduction and prevention of inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, eczema and rosacea.

Tailored pneumatic pressure therapy massage targets and mobilises the entire lymphatic system. This action aids and speeds up the removal of waste and toxins from the body, by reactivating the internal network, providing it with a reset to improve and enhance the body’s overall levels of health and well-being.

Increasing good gut function, and reducing a ‘leaky gut’, lessens the possibility of harmful bacteria and by-products reaching the skin, which can exacerbate the inflammation and proliferation of acne and rosacea. Improving gut function will also aid the absorption of skin-health supplements, enabling them to get to work more effectively.

Supporting the body’s internal ecosystem helps create a better relationship between the skin and gut microbiome. Functional gut = happier skin.

Slimyonik Air is available as a treatment addition at Katie England Skin.
