You know it’s creamy and delicious. But did you know that the "good bacteria" in yogurt is the magic answer for an healthy gut?
Now this same microbe-friendly philosophy is making its way into your skincare products, helping clearing your skin.
Post-Covid welcomed a number of independent skin care lines like Haekels that focus exclusively on supporting the skin microbiome. Even big household names in luxury like Dior and Lancôme have embraced the trend of microbiome skin care.
But " What does microbiome means?" I hear.
The microbiome in your skin ( which is the #1 largest organ in your body) regulates inflammation and protects against pathogens, explains Mary-Margaret Kober, MD, FAAD, a board certified dermatologist in Denver, Colorado.
“Bacteria can play an important part in promoting skin health by preventing infections"
That’s where microbiome skin care comes in.
Growing research suggests that skin care products with prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics help get healthy microbes back into balance.
A balanced microbiome may help reduce eczema, acne, dry skin, and even wrinkles and skin cancer risk linked to UV damage. Therefore, Probiotics can cleared your skin.
Learning about how microbiome is good for the skin, we decided to do a product test using Caprea's new PROBIOTIC SLEEPING MASK.
This powerful blend of rosemary + blackcurrant helps sleeping while balancing your skin's microbiome overnight . Use in combination with Konjac root extract it promotes probiotic culture and build your skin’s barrier.
We gave the product to 100 participants and conducted a survey 30 days after complete usage.
Here were the results:
Your skin is crammed with good bacteria that act like your your skin's barrier bodyguard.
External (pollution, air...) and Internal ( stress, weak immunity..) factors can reduce levels of these bacteria, increasing the risk of acne, rosacea, eczema, and wrinkles.
Increasingly robust science shows that using a skin care product with prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics can help boost your skin’s microbiome for a healthier, glowing complexion.
