What is Skin Microbiome?
Like the gut, the skin has its own microbiome universe, a complex ecosystem of fungi, bacteria and archaea that serves as the foundation for healthy skin. Our skin's structure and function is absolutely essential to our general health. The skin microbiome, found at the surface of the skin, is your skin's first line of defense. The three elements of a healthy skin barrier are the skin microbiome, the acid mantle and the lipid barrier, which work in harmony to protect against irritants, environmental damage and infection.
When our skin microbiome is out of balance with our modern lifestyle assaults of our gut microbiome through antibiotic overuse, consumption of foods that disrupt gut flora, which leads to many skin diseases such as psoriasis, eczema, contact dermatitis, yeast and fungal infections, acne, rosacea, dandruff, just to name a few.
Balanced skin microbiome = healthy immune response = naturally healthy-looking skin.
