When we eat and drink, our bodies are so dynamic that they are able to separate what we need from what we don’t need. Things that we don’t need are considered toxins. With a good digestive system, it flushes out toxins and waste that can be harmful to the body. However, when your digestive system is not functioning properly, toxins build up in the body and can cause complications with our skin. Therefore, many believe that certain skin diseases are caused from an unhealthy digestive system. Normally people with skin disorders such as acne and psoriasis suffer from constipation. Another example is that certain foods can cause negative reactions in the body and make it difficult to digest them which can also can create acids that can cause irritation to the skin.
Dr. Wright’s Tip
We are what we eat and when you have beautiful skin, it shows that you are doing something right. Unhealthy habits that involve drinking and smoking will show on your skin. Your body needs a healthy functioning digestive system. Foods like refined and cooked carbohydrates, dairy products and cooked fats can cause unwanted toxins to build up and cause acne. They cause the digestive system to become slow and sluggish. Make sure to drink plenty of water and eat fresh vegetables, fruits and nuts for your body to function as it should. That way, when your body is balanced, your skin will be too.
