I talk a lot about my past struggle with hormonal cystic acne. It’s actually what led me to start Vibrant & Pure—my skin condition made it clear to me that something was wrong internally. After completely changing my diet, I'm mostly free of my acne, but I’m still ever evolving and experimenting with different foods and activities that can make my skin condition fluctuate. While my skin is for the most part healed, I will still get one or two breakouts every now and then—usually after a weekend of one or two too many cocktails and sugary food with friends. I don't beat myself up over these times (after all, you have to live your life!), but I do whip up a gut-health and skin-glow-inducing meal prep so I know I'm set for a good week ahead.
I didn't realize until recently how closely interconnected gut health and skin health are: If you struggle with acne and you haven't examined your diet, I suggest you give it a try. That which is good for your gut will inevitably make your skin glow; here's how I prep to achieve both. With these healthy staples in my fridge, I have no excuse not to eat well all week long!
