Your Skin’s Microbiome

What is the Skin’s Microbiome?

The skin’s microbiome (much like that of your gut) is the community of all microorganisms, which encompasses all bacteria, viruses, yeast and skin flora. The microbiome environment can easily be influenced by temperature, hormones, UV exposure and even skin care. This ecosystem can help keep bad bacteria away, prevents various skin disorders, and ultimately makes the skin feel healthy and look more radiant.

Defining the 3-Biotics

Understanding the Difference Between Pre, Pro & Postbiotics

1. Prebiotics

"Feeds" healthy bacteria to flourish and diversify on the skin

2. Prebiotics

Live bacteria that are beneficial to the body's health — topically and internally

3. Postbiotics

By-product of bacteria to support and maintain the health of skin's microbiome

Dermatologist’s Weigh In

“Just like your gut, the skin is home to microbes that are essential to skin health. This ecosystem can help keep bad bacteria away, prevents various skin disorders, and ultimately makes the skin feel healthy and look more radiant.” -Dr. Heba Abdulla.

“I-Modulia, is extracted from an ancient microflora that can be found only in the Avène Thermal Spring in France. It decreases the bad bacteria, S. aureus, on the skin and restores healthy, natural balance in the microbiome.” Dr. Peter Lio

“Our microbiome is important in maintaining moisture, pH, and overall skin health. Eau Thermale Avène products are optimal for keeping this dermatologic ecosystem intact” - Dr. Mona Gohara
