Dr.’s Holly and Trevor talk about how the gut microbiome impacts our skin microbiome. Many patients visit dermatologists for skin conditions and are prescribed topical medications to suppress symptoms. Our doctors take a holistic approach and look at what is going on internally to be causing an issue externally with their skin. Dr. Cates has realized it takes a two pronged approach with helping your internal environment as well as treating the skin topically. Using topicals and getting the right pH and microbiome balance is key in daily skin care use.

Often with skin issues on the face like acne, it can become a stressful and emotional issue. This is why it’s so important for practitioners to help patients balance their internal environment and help prescribe the right topicals to help people get healthy from the inside out.

Dr. Trevor Cates is the author of the bestselling book Clean Skin from Within. She became known, as “The Spa Dr.” after working in world-renowned spas and was the first woman licensed as a naturopathic doctor in the state of California, appointed by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to California’s Bureau of Naturopathic Medicine Advisory Council.
