What do your microbiome and the health of your skin have to do with each other?
Well, they are actually interconnected!
It would surprise you to know that the microbiome (the ecosystem of friendly bacteria) is our first line skin barrier defense.
Want to know another interesting fact?
The human skin has 1 billion microbes (bacteria) per square centimeter.
Sounds strange to think about but these bacteria are actually important for how our skin looks and feels.
And like the gut, skin health depends on the right balance of good and bad bacteria.
You've probably heard of prebiotics and their role in keeping our gut healthy, but in skincare, the concept may sound foreign...
What role do prebiotics play in skin health?
The ecosystem of friendly bacteria often needs some extra support to function optimally.
With prebiotics, the skin can return to its natural, healthy balance.
What about the microbiome?
The microbiome acts as an intelligent shield. When healthy, it retains moisture, and keeps irritants out.
An imbalance in the microbiome can show up as sensitive skin and accelerate the signs of ageing such as loss of elasticity, uneven skin tone and wrinkles.
How can our Prebiotic Moisturising Cream help your skin?
The microbiome-friendly prebiotic moisturising cream was formulated with special care for this precious ecosystem.
We made sure to include ingredients that will stimulate the function of the microbiome, so that your skin looks and feels healthy and glowing.
Knowing how many stressors your skin faces on a daily basis, this cream’s main purpose is to hydrate, protect and rejuvenate the skin from within.
Prebiotics you can find in the prebiotic moisturising cream:
This prebiotic derived from Chicory root is a water drawing magnet that pulls moisture from the environment into the skin and keeps it hydrated.
To explain it simply, it forms a thin layer on the skin, which leaves it smooth and supple.
It also keeps your skin barrier strong and your complexion radiant.
Xyltiol, Xylitylglucoside and Anhydroxylitol:
These three ingredients are prebiotic plant sugars to help hydrate, strengthen and stimulate the skin’s own production of hyaluronic acid.
Benefits of the Prebiotic Moisturising cream
Delays signs of ageing:
The powerful prebiotics aid in the production of additional collagen drops with age.
The Prebiotic moisturising cream also contains Rosehip and Organic Rosa Damascena.
Rosehip oil is very rich in antioxidants and contains vitamin A and C that are both very beneficial in fighting signs of ageing.
Rosa Damascena oil also has excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.
Reduces sun damage:
Prebiotics also help the skin that was damaged by UV rays.
They help heal damaged skin and heal broken skin which improves the skin’s immunity.
Rosehip and Rosa Damascena oil boost collagen production which also helps with improving signs of ageing.
Beside the prebiotics in the cream that also boost hydration, another ingredient in the prebiotic moisturising cream is hyaluronic acid.
It works as a magnet for moisture, helping your cells retain as much moisture as possible so that your skin feels and appears hydrated, plump and healthy.
The organic Rosa Damascena oil also has emollient properties for moisturising dry skin.
You hear from everywhere that you should use this or that product, but what really matters is addressing the components of your skin that are responsible for the way your skin looks.
The microbiome is often overlooked or not talked about enough but you truly need to take care of it and chose gentle products in order to have healthy skin.
