What are probiotics?
Probiotics are living micro-organisms (bacteria, yeast, etc.) that have a beneficial effect on the organism that ingests them. Firstly, they can be ingested as food supplements and act on the intestinal flora. Secondly, they can be applied topically and rebalance the skin flora, itself made up of micro-organisms.
An imbalance in your microbiome?
Prolonged exposure to aggressive and excessive washing or care can unbalance the internal and/or external microbiome. For example, the use of soap with a too high pH, antibacterial soap, medication (antibiotics), pollution, or stress. Indeed, the protective barrier role of the microbiome decreases and the skin is in direct contact with external aggressions.
