Skin needs several things to stay healthy and look its best, says HealthyAnswers.com in a recent alert. It needs water to stay well-hydrated and fight sagging; careful cleansing and moisturizing; a little sun protection; a healthy diet full of skin-loving nutrients; and at least 6-8 hours of sleep per night. All these things keep skin looking vibrant and young. Perhaps surprisingly, another thing that beautiful skin needs, says HealthyAnswers.com, is a healthy gut. Getting a healthy gut requires adding probiotics to the diet to aid digestion, vitamin absorption and overall intestinal functioning which slows down as people get older. They cite research noted in How Fermented Foods Aid Digestion, Madeline Vann, MPH, that states that fermented foods can be an excellent source of these probiotics which are good for digestion.
