What Is The Skin Microbiome?

We all know about our gut microbiome (our gut flora), and the importance of maintaining its health. But what is all this commotion about the skin microbiome?

Well, just like our gut, our skin also counts with a family of billions of friendly living microorganisms. Together, they form the skin flora, or Microbiome.

What is the function of the Microbiome?

The function of the Microbiome is to keep the skin healthy and protected from bacteria or pathogens that can cause inflammatory skin conditions. Acne, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, dehydration, and sensitivity are examples of what happens to our skin when our Microbiome is not healthy and balanced.

Your Microbiome is as unique as your DNA

Everyone has a unique skin and gut microbiome, that can be further influenced by environmental stressors and lifestyle. That's why, as Skin Therapists, we see clients wanting to achieve the same results as their friend or relative or clients with the exact same skin condition that do not get the same results.

As Professional Skin Therapists, we want to help our clients achieve the best results in their skincare journey. The key? Professional skincare that addresses the skin Microbiome!

How to treat the skin Microbiome?

The same way you'd treat the gut Microbiome! With Probiotics and Prebiotics. Nowadays, Probiotics and Prebiotics are present in skincare products to help maintain good skin health and strengthen our skin microbiome.

These are my essential Probiotic and Prebiotic products:
