Your skin is a living thing, and much like rainforests and oceanic coral reef ecosystems, it must maintain a delicate balance in order to thrive.
Bad diet, stress, makeup and naughty skin care habits can all disrupt the skin microbiome and lead to problem skin.
Embrace Naked Days
Choose makeup-free days to give your skin a rest from all layers and products. The less makeup you wear, the less cleansing you need. This is very good news for the skin microbiome, allowing the skin to start regenerating.
•Cleansing made easy
Don’t get me wrong, cleansing is important, but over-cleansing is a problem. Over-cleansing with twice-a-day products strips your skin of all the precious natural oils it produces, stripping it of the protection they provide. It washes away. Ideally, spray your face with lukewarm water every morning.
• avoid sweets
Like it or not, sugar is detrimental to our health and skin is no exception. Sugar breaks down the collagen and elastin that give skin its structure and firmness. Try to reduce or cut out sugar as much as possible.
• go outside
Being in nature immediately improves your mental and physical health. Your skin loves it too, thanks to all the great microbes that interact with it in a healthy way. Get outside and restore your skin while lowering your stress levels and improving your mood.
• Get some sun
Next time you’re outside, spend about 15 minutes in nature without sunscreen to give your skin a boost of vitamin D. Anything longer than 15 minutes will get you into areas of tanning that you definitely want to avoid.
• move more
There is no way around this. Everyone should exercise. It’s good for your physical health, your mental health, and your skin too! Sweating releases accumulated toxins, and an increased heart rate increases blood flow throughout the body, resulting in healthier skin.
• Contains Omega
Deficiency of Omega 3 and Omega 6 in fresh fish, eggs and seeds can compromise skin health as these high quality oils support skin barrier function and microbiome.
• Know what’s in the skin product
Organic, natural, and microbiome friendly – these are the three key things I look for in a skincare product.If you don’t know where to start we love you Esse Because the products provide natural probiotic skin care products that help balance the microbiome and boost skin health.
