The skin microbiome is a collection of microbes that live on the skin.

This may sound gross, but these microbes actually play a vital role in maintaining your skin health! In recent years, new technologies have enabled scientists to gain a better understanding of the importance of these tiny microscopic organisms to skin health. They have found, that just like the gut microbes are critical to our digestive health, these organisms play a pivotal role in keeping our skin healthy and looking good too.

The new scientific field of skin microbiome science has led to the development of a new wave of skincare products and therapies that aim to support the skin microbiome. So far numerous studies have independently shown that a healthier skin microbiome can improve skin hydration, reduce redness, blemishes, and dryness, and reduce and prevent common skin conditions such as acne. 

Working in tangent with the skin barrier, the skin microbiome provides skin cells with nutrients, strengthens the skins protective layer, and wards off acne-causing species. The many benefits of a healthy skin microbiome also includes keeping the skin looking smooth, evenly toned, healthy and clear.

Microbiome-health companies such as biomiq have now branched out into skincare, using their extensive knowledge of the skin microbiome they have created new innovative products containing only ingredients that actively promote a healthy skin microbiome. For example, a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that the application of Lactobacillus fermentum (a byproduct of microbial fermentation) to the skin improved skin hydration and reduced skin roughness and redness.

Their new skincare line caters to acne-prone skin, more mature skin, and excessively dry skin, with more products to follow.

Using powerful and bioactive skincare, such as biomiq's postbiotic acne range, which actively instigates skin cell renewal will provide your skin with the nourishment and care it deserves. The signature postbiotics in biomiq's formula work hard to rebalance your skins natural microbiome. Not only treating common skin conditions, but also paving a future pathway to consistently clearer, more beautiful, healthier and toned skin.
