Skin Ecosystem

In our modern world, with the rise of probiotics, DIY cosmetics, no poo products, and other natural skin care solutions, it can be difficult to figure out exactly what is means to live healthy and have healthy skin. The biohacking trend along with a shift towards more natural lifestyles, like Paleo, have lead the way for an educated population around the benefits of probiotics and supplements. Yet in this move towards DIY remedies and supplements to help rebalance health, we seem to have overlooked the very important ecosystem of the skin microbiome. Much like our gut relies on active probiotics and other gut bacteria to restore health, the biome of the skin needs to maintain certain bacteria on the skin for health.
