Understanding Your Skin’s Microbiome

You might hear people talk about your skin microbiome when it comes to improving the condition of your complexion. But what is skin microbiome? And how can you improve it?

What is skin microbiome?

The skin microbiome is our natural shield, maintaining the skin barrier, regulating the pH-value and protecting the skin from stressors from the environment. Your skin has billions of living ‘friendly bacteria’ microorganisms, often known as skin flora. This is your skin microbiome, and, similarly to your gut microbiome, keeping it in balance is key to happy, healthy skin. It is like an eco-system that must be carefully maintained for problem-free, beautiful skin.

How to rebalance skin

How do you improve your skin microbiome?

Just as you can rebalance your gut microbiome with a healthier diet and probiotics, you can also improve your skin microbiome. Of course, diet comes into play here too, with gut-friendly foods also being a good start to improve the condition of your skin. Opt for fresh, healthy, seasonal foods and support your skin by include prebiotics and probiotics in your diet. In addition, the right skincare is key. The good news? We have plenty of skincare products to help improve your skin microbiome.
