What is Microbiome of the Skin and Why is it so Important?
There are a huge world of microorganism living and coexisting in our #skin. Some examples are Corynebacteria, Propionibacterium, Staphylococci, Malassezia and more. The presence and the amount of each one, could change depending of the skin area, age, temperature, PH, genetics and probably external factors.
We know that the balance plays an important role for keep #healthyskin. Altering this equilibrium (dysbiosis).
Could triggers some skin diseases
Could make other pathogen bacteria infected easily
Get worst skin disorders like psoriasis or atopic dermatitis
Also is important to train our skin immune system
Is not a coincidence some of the treatments for non-infections skin conditions are with antibiotics, anti parasite or antifungics.
The gut microbiome investigation is leading all the scientific information, actually there is theory that relates gut microbiome with skin disorders (gut-skin axis), this is haven´t been conclude. I can assure in the future we will have prebiotic and probiotic treatments for skin problems, for now we need more science studies for make stronger conclusions and recommendations.
