Would you like to have radiant skin? Then restoring your microbiome is essential. The microbiome, a community of bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms that live on our skin, plays a crucial role in skin health and radiance. When the microbiome is in balance, it helps screen against pollutants and maintain a healthy skin barrier.


Unfortunately, factors such as stress, poor diet and the use of harsh products can disrupt the microbiome. Fortunately, there are ways to restore the microbiome and get your skin glowing again. probiotics and prebiotics play an important role in this. In this blog article, we share tips and tricks to balance your microbiome and enjoy healthy, glowing skin. Let's get started!

What is the microbiome

The microbiome is a term that is mentioned more and more often when it comes to the health of our skin. But what exactly is the microbiome?

The microbiome refers to the collection of billions of microorganisms that live on and in our bodies, particularly on our skin and in our intestines. These microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi and viruses, form a complex ecosystem that plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin. They help maintain pH balance, protect against harmful invaders and even play a role in the production of vitamins.

In short, the microbiome is essential for good skin health. Now that we know what the microbiome is, let's see how we can restore it for glowing skin.

How to restore the microbiome

The microbiome of our skin is a delicate balance of different microorganisms that play a vital role in the health and appearance of our skin. A disrupted order in the microbiome can lead to skin problems such as acne, eczema and a dull complexion. Fortunately, there are ways to restore the microbiome to ensure radiant skin.

An important step to restore the microbiome is to use mild, pH-neutral cleansing products that respect the skin's natural flora. It is also important to take probiotics or use them in skin care products to nourish the good skin bacteria and restore balance. Furthermore, it is important to follow a healthy diet rich in fiber and various nutrients as this promotes the diversity of the microbiome.

Finally, avoiding excessive use of antibiotics and harsh skin care products is also crucial to maintaining a healthy microbiome and radiant skin.

The difference between pre- and probiotics

Probiotics and prebiotics are terms that are increasingly being mentioned when it comes to restoring the microbiome for glowing skin. But what exactly is the difference?

Probiotics are live microorganisms, such as bacteria and yeasts, that have a positive effect on our health when taken in adequate amounts. They can enrich the microbiome and restore balance.

Prebiotics are nutrients that cannot be digested by our bodies, but serve as food for the good bacteria in our microbiome. This allows these bacteria to flourish and perform their important functions.

Thus, by using the right combination of prebiotics and probiotics, we can optimize our microbiome and thus work towards a radiant skin.

What effect do pre & probiotics have on the microbiome

Pre- and probiotics have a huge impact on the microbiome of our skin.

The microbiome is a complex ecosystem of skin bacteria , fungi and other microorganisms that live on our skin. These microorganisms play an important role in maintaining a healthy skin balance and protect us from harmful external influences. Prebiotics are nutrients that feed and stimulate these good bacteria, while probiotics are live microorganisms added directly to the microbiome. By consuming pre- and probiotics, we can restore balance to our microbiome and keep our skin glowing.
