How is your immune system connected to your skin?
Your immune system is the key component in keeping your body protected from infections and viruses. It works to defend against harmful bacteria and pathogens. The skin is part of this process. It acts as the primary defence mechanism. It is a physical barrier between your bloodstream and harmful foreign particles. A variety of cells work together to mount functional immune responses. Together they battle inflammatory processes, and boost immunity against infections, and allergies.
What happens if your immune system is weak?
If your immune system is weak, your skin is one of the first places you will see the impacts. It becomes more vulnerable to inflammation and hypersensitivity. You may:
- Become prone to bacterial infections
- Break out more often
- Find your skin healing slower
How to boost your skin immune system?
To help your body operate at maximum capacity, here are several things you can do to help support your immune system.
- Stay Hydrated
Drinking plenty of fluids, particularly water, will allow your body to flush out toxins and allow oxygen to move efficiently through your blood stream.
- Eat Nutrient-Rich Foods
Aim to get plenty of Zinc, Vitamin C, and Vitamin A to keep your immune system healthy. Binging on processed foods and products high in fats will add unnecessary pressure on your immune system. Healthy foods for Healthy glowing skin.
- Get Enough Sleep
Sleep does not only help you reset your mental state but is vital in keeping your body thriving. Lack of sleep is connected to decreased immunity against flus and the common cold.

Regular exercise helps keep your circulation, boosts your serotonin, and overall improve your mental and physical state. Improved circulation enables immune cells to travel more efficiently and aids in combating viruses and other illnesses.
