3 Ways Your Skin Concerns Might Stem From Your Gut

3 Ways Your Skin Concerns Might Stem From Your Gut

We believe that you can’t address skin concerns without first looking at your gut health and addressing the microbiome. Based on this, our expert nutrition team have created a variety of superfood products that help improve your skin from the inside out.

The gut-skin axis refers to the connection and communication between the gut and the skin. This is predominantly achieved through the microbiome and the immune system (70% of which is located in the gut), meaning microbiome health and dietary choices directly impact the skin.


What is a microbiome?

The microbiome is an immense fusion of 300 trillion living microorganisms: bacteria, fungi, viruses, protists and archaea all working in symbiosis. It is found throughout our body including within our gut and across the whole outer layer of our skin. As a key regulator of the immune system and inflammation, it’s important that the microbiome remains balanced and healthy.


1. Dull and Dry Skin = Potential Nutrient Deficiencies

2. Hormonal Acne = Potential Blood Sugar Imbalance

3. Inflammatory Skin Conditions = Potential Microbial Imbalance






We need to absorb certain nutrients to support skin health, including omega 3 for hydration and vitamin C for collagen production. If our ability to absorb nutrients is impaired this can cause dry, dull skin. One way of improving nutrient absorption is by restoring the gut lining.

Our powerhouse seaweed broth provides all the nutrients you need to nourish your body, repair your gut and improve your skin. It helps restore the gut lining to promote optimal digestion and nutrient absorption that give skin that radiant glow.

Currently, our broth is only available in our treatment houses and through our gut-health programme. If you can’t get your hands on our broth, we’d recommend supplementing with Bio.Me Barrier from Invivo to help repair the gut lining and balance the gut-brain microbiome.

Our game-changing Spiraglow EGF Serum has been designed as the skincare powerhouse you need to restore balance in your skin.

For the first time, we’ve included an epidermal growth factor derived from in-lab sugar fermentation. EGF is a cellular growth factor protein our skin creates that plays a fundamental role in the production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid to maintain our skin’s healthy barrier.

Blood sugar balance is also important for skin health. Insulin spikes can lead to other hormonal imbalances that increase the chance of skin conditions like hormonal acne. 

Our beetroot probiotic is an antioxidant-rich source of polyphenols and good bacteria that will improve your gut health and help your skin glow by balancing the microbiome and regulating blood sugar levels. Our beetroot probiotic is only available in our treatment houses and through our gut-health programme. If you can’t get to one of our stores, we’d recommend Invivo’s polyphenol-rich supplement Bio.Me Essential help to balance and optimise your microbiome.

Eat the rainbow! The microbiome needs diversity to remain balanced and healthy. One way of ensuring this is through consuming an abundance of different coloured fruits and vegetables.

Our red nutrition balls are rich in antioxidant vitamin C for radiant, bright luminous skin while supporting a healthy immune system.

Our yellow nutrition balls are rich in anti-inflammatory compounds like turmeric that help restore the gut and skin barrier.

Our green nutrition balls increase your intake of omega-3 to help moisturise the skin from the inside out.

Our nutritional balls are currently only available in our treatment houses. If you can’t easily access them, we’d recommend supplementing with Bio.Me Prebio PHGG by Invivo, a gentle prebiotic fibre that helps sustain microbial diversity.

Our new Spiraglow products are independently certified as Kind To Biome, meaning they have gone through rigorous testing to confirm they are barrier friendly and not disruptive to your skin.

Truly skin and scalp microbiome-gentle care consist of products where the formulations have been tested against a skin microbiome-gentle protocol. Ingredients, such as pre and post-biotics, do not alone guarantee that final products have a beneficial impact on the microbiome. In addition, scientific evidence of the effectiveness of specific ingredients is not related to their impact on the skin microbiome. Multiple factors influence a product’s impact on the skin microbiome. One must take the entire formulation into account, as various factors, such as type of preservatives, preservative boosters, pH level, fragrances, essential oils, and surfactants, can disrupt the skin microbiome.
