Improving Digestion

Emblem for Skin Support Part 1 - Establishing Fundamentals

Dear Reader,

Welcome to the first module of SkinSupport.

The objectives of this module are focused on balancing the skin from inside. By focusing on the inside, you will reduce the amount of time you will need to spend focusing on the outside.

Introductory Readings

To get a better understanding of the logic behind the objectives introduced, reading of the following sections is suggested:

Outcomes to be Expected

Your digestive system is an integral part of your immune system and influences the quality of the sebum your skin produces. By improving your digestive system it is proposed that you should benefit from the following:

  • Improved lipid metabolism
  • Improved blood sugar control
  • Healthier sebum composition
  • Stabilized sebum production

Objectives in Focus
