Your skin is a unique and amazing ecosystem made up of billions of live microorganisms. Working together, your skin and body outsource many of its functions to your microbiome. Prebiotic skincare and probiotic skincare are important to keep your skin microbiome diverse and healthy.
A happy microbiome = healthy skin.
WHAT ARE PREBIOTICS?
Prebiotics are ingredients that serve as nutrition for your microbiome and feed good bacteria. The benefit of prebiotic skincare is that it encourages the growth of good bacteria on the skin while suppressing the negative.
WHAT ARE PROBIOTICS?
Probiotics are bacteria themselves and strains of living microorganisms. These bacteria are introduced to help diversify your microbiome and encourage the growth of positive microflora.
WHAT ARE POSTBIOTICS?
Postbiotics are fragments of the same beneficial probiotic bacteria, and they have the same positive effect as probiotics.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROBIOTICS IN SKINCARE AND ORAL SUPPLEMENTS?
First of all, in skincare, probiotics are often in fact postbiotics.
It’s much easier to keep probiotic bacteria alive in oral supplements due to its dry form, but almost impossible to keep them alive in topical skin care such as creams and emulsions. Instead, fragments of probiotics are used.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PREBIOTIC AND PROBIOTIC SKINCARE?
Proven to be highly beneficial to keep the skin microbiome healthy, prebiotics and probiotics are also effective at managing a range of skin concerns from acne and sensitivity to rosacea and skin dryness.
Looking after your skin microbiome can also prevent the early appearance of age-related changes as our microbiome diversity decreases as we get older.
Prebiotic skin care is beneficial and safe for all skin types.
