Skin microbiome. It’s not just a trend, it’s crucial

Did you know that to keep your face healthy and glowing, you must look after it from within? The diversity, heterogeneity and balance of millions of bacteria and microbes, good and bad, ensure that the skin can perform its barrier function, activating defence mechanisms for a healthy skin immune system. These microorganisms (whether balanced or not) that live in our skin is called the skin microbiome.

Why does the skin microbiome become upset?

In our daily lives we are exposed to numerous factors such as pollution, the sun and changing temperatures, as well as internal factors like lifestyle, diet, stress and drug treatments. These can cause issues like irritation, inflammation, sensitivity and skin ageing.

What can we do about it?

It is very important to cultivate good habits for a healthy life, which will lead to better skin. For example, exercise for half an hour each day, follow a healthy, balanced diet, get enough sleep and keep stress to a minimum by relaxing for a few minutes each day…

As well as a healthy lifestyle, there are also facial treatments to lend a helping hand, like Sublime by Bella Aurora.

Its exclusive Microbiome Repair Complex encourages microbiome diversity, encourages the presence of beneficial anti-inflammatory bacteria and improves immune system response by stimulating its integrity. This delays skin ageing and provides the essential nutrients that mature skin needs.

Now you know a little more about your skin, you will be able to make sure it is always healthy and glowing.
