How to Protect your Skin Microbiome
Millions of bacteria and fungi colonize the skin, and like the microbes in the gut, they impact how the skin functions and its ability to protect the body from external damage. Unfortunately, some modern hygiene practices can wreck the skin's microbiome and cause an imbalance in the environment. So, what can we do to boost and protect our skin’s microbiome? Here are some tips: (1) Avoid using harsh topical products on your skin. (2) Cleanse correctly using skin-friendly products. (3) Rebalance your skin from within by eating probiotic-rich foods and supplements. (4) Stay hydrated and work up a sweat regularly to keep your skin’s microbiome healthy.
