Do I need probiotics to have clear skin?

Initially in the early stages of making changes, if you have a skin problem and the areas affected on your face are forehead, chin and cheeks this is indicating that your digestive health is not at optimum and your gut microbiome needs some support. Probiotics are a great way to start the support process and ideally your probiotic should contain the species; lactobacillus rhamnosus, saccharomyces boulardii and bifidobacterium animalis. However they are transient in your digestive tract and only influence your digestive tract for a few days so other strategies should be considered for long term gut microbiome health such as:

Daily ingestion of resistant starches.

Elimination of white and beige foods including dairy, high amounts of fruits and dairy products.

Add kefir and fermented foods to your diet on a daily basis.

Ensure that you are drinking adequate amounts of filtered water and minimise your alcohol intake.

Add at least 2 handfuls of greens to your plate every meal time.

Start the day with a green smoothie.

Ensure that you are getting 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep a night to promote gut health.

If you have had a lot of antibiotics and medications in your lifetime you may need to consider using a product to recolonise your gut and re-establish a healthy number of microbiome. I like to use a product called Chitsu and generally find that it takes anywhere from 3-12 months to establish a stable colony together with dietary changes.
