You’ve heard it before, because it’s true—good skin starts with good lifestyle choices. The way we feed ourselves quite literally shows on our faces. But it goes deeper than diet and exercise—it’s about balance. We spoke to Adina Grigore, author and founder of organic skincare brand S.W. Basics, about how disruption of healthy intestinal flora can cause systematic inflammation that leads to acne and other complexion concerns.

Here, her expert tips for creating a healthy, glow-promoting connection between your gut and your skin.

Get Started
2/4

Take probiotic supplements

Probiotics assist the digestive system, and they also contribute to the health of your skin. “Our foods were once full of bacteria, but these days we eat mostly ‘dead’ packaged food,” Adina says. “It can be really difficult to get enough probiotics from our diet, so it doesn’t hurt to increase how much you’re ingesting.”

3/4

Eat fermented foods

The fermentation process creates enzymes, vitamins, and probiotics otherwise not present in food. Adina suggests adding items such as kimchi, tempeh, sauerkraut, yogurt, and kombucha tea to your diet to help improve your skin.

4/4

Eat good fats

By loading your diet with nutrient-dense, vitamin-rich foods, your skin will become clearer and more radiant. One essential to incorporate is healthy fat (olive oil, salmon, avocado, etc.). “I actually see a lot of clients who aren’t eating enough healthy fats and have serious skin issues such as sensitivity, redness and acne,” Adina explains. These foods do a much better job of helping your skin thrive in comparison to over-processed, low-nutrient foods.
