Beauty is not even skin deep! It is the work of millions of micro-beauticians working on it. Yes, that is true.
The beauty of your facial skin is largely dependent on the infestation of millions of microbes on your face – also known as the facial skin microbiome. The skin has a community of beneficial microbes living there that includes bacteria, viruses, fungi, mites, etc.
They have a very active role to play in keeping your skin healthy, glowing and hydrated. These microscopic organisms work 24/7 to protect the skin, and to ensure that the skin barrier is fully functional.
Dr. Mona Gohara, a well-known dermatologist, likened the skin microbiome to a community of Smurfs. She said, “That’s what your skin’s microbiome is like – a little community of microorganisms that help your skin work better.” If this microbiome is misbalanced and non-functional for some reason, then your skin will be susceptible to issues such as psoriasis, rashes, dermatitis and eczema. The best way to maintain the delicate balance of the facial microbiome is to use products free of harsh compounds.
Certain kinds of facial soap can also disrupt the microbiome by creating a harsh pH environment. That is why it is a good idea to use gentle soaps that are also pH-neutral. By being gentle to the facial skin and its microbiome, you can contribute to its beauty and glow.
