Use Kefir Skincare

The essential power of the Good Skin Solution is to heal from the inside and outside at the same time. So while you are drinking the kefir to restore the good bugs inside your gut microbiome, you need to also apply the kefir to your skin, in order to heal your skin biome.

The simplest way to do this is to use kefir skincare, in the form of kefir cleansers and kefir lotions. Chuckling Goat can ship kefir skincare to your door, or you can make your own. It is also possible to apply kefir directly to your skin, or pour it into your bath for a biome-restorative soak.

It is also important to eliminate biome-destroying chemicals from your personal care routine. Many of the environmental toxins that damage the microbiome can be found in either personal care products or household cleaners. You will need to get rid of any products that contain parabens, phthalates, petrochemicals, artificial dyes or perfumes.

The average woman “hosts” an average of 515 unique chemicals by the time she finishes her bathroom routine in the morning. These chemicals can leach into your system and alter your DNA. Your cells then fail to recognise one another, and fire on each other. This “friendly-fire” is the definition of autoimmune; it literally causes your system to attack itself, resulting in autoimmune skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and acne.

So this is the perfect time to do a clean sweep of your bathroom cabinets. Get rid of anything that contains nasty chemicals that you can’t pronounce! Replace these products with clean, safe products that are chemical free and will not harm your skin biome. Janey Lee Grace in her book Look Great Naturally…Without Ditching the Lipstick has many recommendations for replacing toxic beauty products with healthy natural alternatives.
