Improve Your Skin-Gut Connection
Six tips to super charge your nutrition for radiant skin.
Gut health is one of the most important factors in maintaining the look and texture of your skin. According to scientific studies, gut inflammation can exacerbate intestinal permeability and result in the leaching of toxins into the body which in turn, can result in skin irritations. Swift recommends ingesting a combination of digestive enzymes, pre and probiotics, keeping hydrated and eliminating sugar, artificial sweeteners and meat where possible. Other supplements she recommends include organic chlorella, silica, apple cider vinegar and amino acids. Visit the Skin-Gut Connection Guide for more information on optimising your gut health.
Take the same approach to your skincare as your diet. Swift recommends using products are formulated using organic ingredients that haven’t been hydrogenated, fractionated and had their essential minerals taken out of them. For all-day makeup users, products that are high in antioxidants and naturally-occurring nutrients will preserve your skin’s integrity whilst creating a beautiful canvas.

Recent research has shown that most people use cleansers that are too harsh for their skin. These products tend to strip and cause imbalance to the skin’s natural biodom. Swift personally uses a combination of coconut and olive oil to cleanse her skin.
