But, in most instances, skin health is related to an internal reason.
Digestive health is a crucial factor that affects your skin. Food sensitivities and parasitic infections cause skin issues such as eczema, chronic hives, and itchiness.

For example, a nutrient deficiency can occur due to leaky gut syndrome and inflammations due to imbalances of gut flora, unfriendly bacteria, fungus, and parasites.
Hormonal imbalances may be the cause of your skin health issues. Some women get acne before menses due to hormone imbalance.
A build-up of toxic nutrients too can affect your skin health. Poor detoxification, poorly functioning gut, and toxic absorption due to chronic constipation are some factors that affect the health of your skin.
