Fermented Foods Can Heal Your Skin

On Dec 30th 2016

As the weekend approaches, most of us look forward to indulging in delicious foods and drinks with our friends and family but this might not always lead to good judgement when it comes to caring for our skin. Certain foods and drinks we consume might cause skin issues to develop in the form of acne or eczema. Try incorporating fermented foods into your meals. Fermented foods create good bacteria which helps aid digestion leading to a healthy gut. Skin inflammation can be caused by an imbalance of gut bacteria. Many Koreans have good skin because their diet incorporates a lot of fermented foods like kimchi (spicy fermented cabbage), doenjang (fermented soybean paste), and makgeolli (fermented rice wine). Eating healthy foods can greatly improve the condition of your skin!
