Your skin microbiome, also referred to as skin microbiota or skin flora, is an ecosystem of bacteria on the skin’s surface. It’s made up of trillions of microbiota which have a symbiotic relationship with the skin barrier.
When both your microbiome and your barrier are healthy they work together to maintain your skin’s pH delicate balance, protect against moisture loss, safeguard against environmental damage, and play a role in preventing premature aging.
However these critical functions can become compromised when there’s an excess of foreign bacteria invading the good bacteria, or your barrier is continuously stripped from harsh skincare products and environmental factors.
The optimal way to protect your skin microbiome is to choose skincare products that work with your microbiome, rather than against it, but gently cleansing the skin without stripping your barrier or throwing off your pH.
The skin barrier, also known as the “moisture barrier” or “acid mantle,” is the outermost layer of your epidermis. The skin barrier’s primary function is to keep the ‘good stuff’ such as moisture in, and the ‘bad stuff’ as free radicals out.
A healthy barrier protects the body from toxins such as pollution, chemicals, and UV rays, and maintains moisture by preventing transepidermal water loss.
An unhealthy barrier is unable to perform either of those functions and leaves your skin inflamed, dehydrated, and vulnerable to free radical damage, which can result in weakened skin cells, collagen degradation, deepening lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and extremely dry skin.
The key to protecting your barrier and maintaining its health is selecting a gentle and effective oil cleanser to thoroughly cleanse your skin of dirt, makeup, pollution, and other foreign bacteria, while protecting the natural ceramides and oils that coat the skin’s barrier, without stripping or disrupting your skin’s microbiome.
