Microbiome and Skin Health

Microbiome might not sound like something you want to look for when you’re trying to optimise skin health, but the microbiome is an important part of your overall health and well-being. Essentially, it’s the mix of natural bacteria and fungi species found living on the skin which works to keep skin healthy and protected against inflammation and infection.  Far from being something unpleasant, your microbiome is essential for skin’s health. A microbiome is a collection of microorganisms in a particular place, and it also needs to be properly maintained to ensure skin’s natural flora is as it should be.

How to make sure your microbiome is happy

There are lots of ways to make sure that your microbiome is as happy as possible. Reducing your intake of processed foods and excess sugar can instantly improve the balance. I recommend incorporating more colourful vegetables such as beetroot to help promote a strong and balanced microbiome. This will make your skin healthy, clear and glowing.

You can also avoid products that are too harsh and will strip the skin or disrupt the natural PH. Antibacterial soaps can have a high PH level of around 10 which is far higher than skin’s natural levels of 5. The Natural Glow Cleansing Oil washes away makeup and impurities but still respects and replenishes the skin’s microbiome.

How does the microbiome affect acne?

Your skin’s health and overall condition is entirely determined by the microbiome with acne skin often suffering from an imbalance in the natural bacteria and fungi species on the skin. Healthy skin contains a wide variety of different bacteria, which is why it’s so important to ensure that you nourish the microbiome through your lifestyle, diet and skincare.
