What are Prebiotics & Why They're So Important for Your Skin
The beauty world’s full of fleeting trends and buzzwords. But believe us when we say prebiotics (and probiotics) really do deserve the hype! Restoring balance to the skin microbiome and boosting its barrier, these buzzy, buggy ingredients truly are the real deal. Read on to discover why prebiotic skincare is the hottest trend in beauty – especially for your poor, neglected bod!
The “Prebiotic” is derived from the Greek word “Biotikos” and means “Preserve life”. Skin acts as a defense barrier against bacteria and prevents pathogenic microorganisms from entering the body. Prebiotic ingredients restore the balancing between harmful bacteria and normal flora of the skin.
To understand prebiotics, we first need to talk about the skin microbiome. Keeping it nice and simple, this refers to the EXTENSIVE ecosystem of microorganisms that exists on the skin. Millions of bacteria, fungi and viruses compose the skin microbiota and the health of this ecosystem impacts the way your skin looks and feels, as well as its self-protective mechanisms.
Boosting the skin’s colonies of good-guy bacteria, prebiotics have multiple benefits for the skin. Firstly, they support the skin’s barrier function by replenishing the microbiome and balancing pH levels. Which means? The skin is better able to protect itself against the daily barrage of environmental aggressors (allergens, pathogens etc.), while locking the good stuff (water) in. Not only does this improved barrier function help reduce dryness, sensitivity, inflammation and irritation, it’s your golden ticket for a more supple, hydrated and youthful-looking complexion.
And if you suffer from acne, skin sensitivity or dry skin conditions like dermatitis. These are common signs your skin microbiome is out of whack, and that you should consider adding prebiotic products to your skincare routine.
