Did you know that your skin is home to an entire community of living bacteria? These millions of tiny organisms make up your skin microbiome, which acts as a protective barrier against invading pathogens. Everyone’s skin microbiome is unique, and maintaining a balanced skin microbiome will help maintain a healthy skin appearance. A prebiotic is a sugar or fiber that feeds the good bacteria on your skin. Just like prebiotic fibers in your diet can feed your friendly gut bacteria, prebiotics in your skincare routine can keep your skin microbiome happy. A happy microbiome means healthy-looking skin!
