The Skin-Gut Connection
Skin health can be impacted by many factors including common conditions such as eczema, dermatitis & acne, changes in the weather, our diets, sun exposure and our overall gut health.
Our skin has its own microbiome that delicately balances millions of bacteria to keep our skin healthy. We often support our skin externally with topical creams & skincare routines but did you know you can also support your skin from the inside out?
Everyday, there are new advancements in gut health research showing the important role our gut plays in other parts of our body, most recently being our skin.
Probiotic strains LGG® & BB-12® in combination, and vitamin D, have been well-researched to provide a tonne of benefits for your skin. They help reduce the occurrence of eczema, dermatitis & allergy symptoms in children and support skin healing, repair & overall skin health when sun exposure is limited.
With Winter bringing shorter days of sunshine, cooler temperatures & dry air, our skin can use some help to keep healthy.

Tips to Protect Your Little One's Gut Health
Up to 1 in 3 kids suffer with eczema in Australia1, with flare-ups causing discomfort & leaving little one's unsettled.
With the gut playing such an important role in their skin health, here are 4 tips to help keep their tiny tummies healthy.
Go high on wholefoods
Whole foods are those foods that are minimally processed – meaning they are consumed in as close to their natural form as possible. For example, eating an apple, rather than drinking apple juice – or choosing wholegrain bread & pasta over white bread & pasta.
Go slow on the sugar
Having lots of sugar in your little one's diet promotes the growth of sugar-loving bad bacteria in the gut, which can affect the number & health of beneficial bacteria present in their gut.
Swap to better fats
The difference between good fats & better fats comes from the balance of healthy foods your little one is receiving. Choosing a range of healthy fats for your child will ensure their gut bacteria is healthy, & their digestion strong.
Choose a daily probiotic for kids
Probiotics are superstars for your little one's health. When selecting a probiotic for your child, be sure to choose a well-researched probiotic supplement formulated specifically for use in children.
