Skin is our magic mirror and it gives us great information about our overall health. There are six root causes of skin issues. Dr. Trevor created a skin quiz to help people determine which of the five skin types they are. The five skin types are Olivia, Sage, Emmett, Heath, and Amber. How do our hormones impact our skin and how do we test if we have an imbalance or not? Dr. Trevor also recognizes that gut health plays an important part in our skin too. Our skin has its own microbiome and when the gut is imbalanced, it creates a vicious cycle on your skin too. If you have a leaky gut, a good probiotic is incredibly important to have. A lot of women are afraid of taking hormones. What does Dr. Trevor recommend? Why are natural skincare products not giving people the results that they want? It comes down to them not having the right PH levels! Dr. Trevor notices the biggest difference to her skin in her 40s is the types of skincare products she uses.
Dr. Trevor Cates shares the five common skin types most women are faced with and how to dive deep and treat the root cause, not just the symptoms. There are several tests you can run to test if you have an imbalance in your body, but the biggest thing you have to care for is your gut! Since everything stems from there, your gut health can deeply impact your skin’s health too. Find out more about how to keep your skin healthy and young-looking on this week’s episode.
