It's important to have healthy gut health to prevent bloating and inflammation, both of which can make your skin look dull, ageing, dehydrated and tired.

The gut is full of bacteria and makes up our microbiome. Having a non-toxic skincare regime and a healthy gut is important for glowing skin. The Sothys brand is derived from marine life and plant based which are all non-toxic.

Our gut is filled with billions of bacteria which play a huge role in our skin and the overall state of our health. In order to keep our gut flourishing with health, we need to feed it with prebiotic rich foods. Porridge is an ideal way as it's filled with prebiotic benefits your skin and gut craves. Porridge contains beta fibre which is associated with flourishing gut bacteria. Oats also offer antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which help protect your skin from damage caused by free radicals.

As the age old saying goes "an apple a day keeps the doctor away", and you can add bad gut health away also. Apples are full of fibre and pectin which have numerous prebiotic benefits. Pectin has been found to aid gut flora and reduce the growth of bad bacteria.

Flaxseed is another super food. It can be added to stews, pasta dishes, breakfast cereals and much more. Flaxseed is an incredible source of prebiotics. It contains 3 grams of fibre, which helps to promote healthy gut bacteria and regulate digestion. It's also full of omega-3 fatty acids which is linked to reducing acne and signs of premature ageing. Try these three foods everyday and watch the transformation of your mood, gut health, and bloating disappear, and your skin glow. Call to the salon for skincare advise or call Jill on 064 6632966.

The award-winning Kingdom Pride in Kerry festival is back next week and Killarney will take centre stage.

Kingdom Pride will be celebrated in towns all across the county from July 17 to 21.

The organisation’s flagship Party in the Park event will be held again in Killarney House and Gardens, following the Pride march in the town centre on July 20.

This year, in solidarity with the people of Palestine, Kingdom Pride in Kerry is inviting the people of Kerry to come to show their unity by bringing Palestinian flags and kites to the march, and to the Party in the Park.

“Pride is a protest for human rights all over the world. Here in the Kingdom, we have been so lucky to receive tremendous community support from our allies and supporters, and we see the struggle for liberation of all peoples as a united cause,” said Daniel Quirke, chairperson of the organising committee.

“Our events have always welcomed everyone, regardless of gender, orientation, religion, or nationality. We truly believe that together we can create positive change through caring for and loving one another. This year is no exception, and we look forward to helping to highlight the Palestinian cause, and to bringing people together to keep generating positive change for all people.”

Events will take place in Cahersiveen, Listowel, Killorglin, Tralee and Dingle, and include an Irish comedy night with Áine Gallagher, an Irish-language movie screening, yoga, sea swimming, poetry and storytelling, bowling, pitch and putt, a lively drag night at the INEC, and plenty more for people of all ages.

“We do our best to keep tickets as low-cost as possible, and we have lots of events that are totally free to attend. It is important to us that people can share Pride with us, regardless of income. Especially with the rise of the cost of living putting a strain on people’s pockets.” added the chairperson.
