Why the microbiome of your sensitive skin is important?
The microbiome protects the skin from different pathogens and controls your skin's immunity. It also acts as a barrier to support. Also, the microbiome communicates with the skin’s immune system, letting it know which inhabitants are friends or not. When this communication is functioning properly, the skin microbiome traps moisture and keeps irritants and pathogens out. But when it’s not in balance, it can lead to a lot of issues like eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, and acne. That’s why your microbiome is so important, especially for sensitive skin people.
What causes sensitive and reactive skin?
Things that can cause this imbalance include everything from being overly hygienic, to the ingredients of the products (preservatives, parabens, fragrance, or drying alcohol.). External factors like pollution, UV rays, and smoking can cause this imbalance as well.
