If you’re dealing with breakouts, problem skin, and dull, sallow, or tired complexions, stress may well be the trigger. The relationship between the skin, the brain, and the beneficial bacteria of the gut is well known, and scientific evidence has long linked skin concerns to increasingly stressful lifestyles and to periods of unique stress.

In other words, stressed lives make for stressed skin.

Skin research suggests that one cause of these stress complaints can be traced to the body’s internal microbiome. Your gut microbiome is made up of trillions of microorganisms and their genetic material that live in your intestinal tract. These microorganisms, mainly comprising bacteria, are involved in functions critical to your health and wellbeing.

Factors such as antibiotic use, poor diet, and stress can disrupt the balance of bacteria in the gut, which can negatively affect the skin.

Treating stressed and problem skin requires targeted support of the gut microbiome. Balancing your internal environment is a powerful tool to support your skin’s health.

But how does stress disrupt the balance of your microbiome in the first place?

Mounting research and emerging evidence confirm the link of the skin and gut relationship. Your body’s stress signals have a powerful impact on your intestinal microbiome. Stress signals from the brain trigger the release of proinflammatory cytokines, causing inflammation and profoundly affecting the gastrointestinal physiology.

This leads to imbalanced internal flora and the increased likelihood of intestinal permeability (leaky gut syndrome), which can then trigger skin problems, such as acne, rashes, or eczema.

This is where probiotics can help.

How probiotics can help

Probiotics are made up of good bacteria that help keep your body healthy and working well. Good bacteria help you in many ways, including fighting off bad bacteria when you have too much of it.

Certain foods naturally contain probiotics, including bananas and yoghurt, but at times of stress and illness, taking a probiotic supplement may be helpful.
