In order to get your skin even more beautiful and healthy, what if today you would better understand it?  Recently you may have heard the term “skin microbiota”. As scientific experts, we would like to help you understand its role and the importance of keeping it balanced. We give you tips to take care of it every day.

what is skin microbiota?

Skin microbiota is the community of micro-organisms living on your skin. Every one of us have a different microbiota and ensures a healthy skin. 

The skin microbiota is mainly composed of viruses, bacteria and fungus. It is present in the superficial layers of the skin, in pilo-sebaceous channels and in sweat glands.

WHAT CAN SHAKE THE SKIN MICROBIOTA AND UNBALANCe IT?

A set of external and internal factors threatens the balance of the microbiota.
As external ones, we can mention: pollution, stress, lifestyle, the mask, special diets, soap, UV rays and drugs...
This fragile micro-organism can also be affected by internal factors like our age, genetics and hormones.

Pollution, stress, lifestyle, the mask, special diets, soap, UV rays and drugs can impact your skin health. Maintain a healthy lifestyle helps preserve your skin integrity through time.

This is a non-exhaustive list, there is such a lot of factors impacting microbiota, but so far if you already know these factors, you can try to control your actions on them in order to balance your microbiota.
Let’s deep down below into a few of them:


STRESS

Because of the level of stress, the number of bad bacteria increase on the skin. We call bad bacteria the ones involved in the inflammatory process. 

MASK

We know that wearing a mask everyday modifies the pH level. It increases the temperature and the carbon dioxide level of the skin. All of this leads to an increase of bad bacteria and may increase the apparition of imperfections for acne. 

POLLUTION

Pollution affects directly our microbiota and modifies its balance. Nowadays the environment is more and more polluted because of carbon emissions from cars, factories... And 54% of the population lives in urban areas.
​​​​​​​Unfortunately, pollution causes harmful damages on the skin and induces an inflammatory reaction which weaken the skin's barrier and accelerate skin aging.

HOW ABOUT skin's pH?

We know that skin’s pH on the face is around 5.5, it is slightly acidic. The pH level plays a major role in the good balance of skin microbiota.

WHAT ARE THE IMPACTS IF YOUR SKIN MICROBIOTA IS NOT STABLE?


An unbalanced microbiota creates skin disorders: such as dullness, uneven skin tone, appearance of redness and acne spots. At the opposite, a well-balanced microbiota ensures protection to your skin and help to make it beautiful and healthy.
