Leaky gut of the skin

Much like leaky gut, damage to the ‘bricks and mortar’ structure of the stratum corneum allows the penetration of antigens and other harmful substances through the barrier to the living layers of the skin, where they can drive an immune response. In fact, repeat exposure to an irritant is a recognized factor preceding the onset of allergic dermatitis due to heightened sensitivity. Disruption to the ‘mortar’ of the stratum corneum may also compromise the ability of these lipids to impede microbial growth, leaving the skin even more susceptible to pathogenic insult and subsequent infection.
