Gut-Skin Axis and Customizing Probiotics
Gut health and the gut microbiome has now been shown to impact the skin. We will explore the biochemical and immunological mechanisms for how the gut communicates with the skin. Clinical studies and evidence for how herbs, probiotics, and supplements can modulate both the gut and the skin will be reviewed. We will describe how the gut-skin axis is ripe for personalized solutions and products that can integrate general health, skin health, and aesthetics.
