Microbiome Beauty 101

We are tapping into microbiome skincare...

Hold the phone…Microbiome beauty is calling.  Microbiome, the beauty in good bacteria, is doing the rounds in skincare. From promises of relieving skin conditions like eczema and acne to raving reviews of how biome-friendly products plump the skin, microbiome-friendly products claim to balance and fortify the skin’s ecosystem. It truly does feel out here like microbiome skincare can do no wrong. However, what is a microbiome-friendly product?


A microbiome-friendly product is essentially a product containing live or non-live bacteria and/or active ingredients to support the bacteria of the skin and avoid the overgrowth of bad bacteria that can be inflammatory and aggressive. Micro biome-supporting products, typically of a gentler formulation, can balance PH levels in the skin and protect the skin’s barrier.  They are usually composed of probiotics or prebiotics. They sound similar but are not the same. Probiotics contain live bacteria capable of balancing the skin microbiome, whereas prebiotics are made up of ingredients that nourish and support our beneficial bacteria. 

What is the major takeaway? Basically, to truly care for your skin you have to tend to the bacteria already living in your skin- well the good ones mostly. Favor the good ones and fend off the bad ones.

Our skin is an active environment containing millions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses. It’s microbiome is in constant flux and changes to internal and external elements and its changes are shown on the surface of our skin. Still, the conversation surrounding the skin microbiome is limited compared to the possibilities it has. Let’s talk more. Tune in.
