Actibiome and how it can improve your skin

Actibiome and how it can improve your skin

What if we told you that billions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses inhabit your skin at this very moment – and that it’s a good thing? These inhabitants are known as the skin microbiome, and they make up the skin’s own ecosystem, the microbiota, which keeps our skin healthy and our shield against extraneous threats strong.

As a disturbance of the microbiome is linked with a disrupted skin barrier function, we don’t need much of your time to explain why it's essential that you keep your microbiome balanced. Like our body, our skin needs the right diet to function properly – and here’s why actibiome should be its main course.

A symbiotic relationship

Our skin is our first defense against diseases, infections, and other potential threats – which is why we should strive to keep it healthy and thriving. As we age, our microbiome and microbiota change in sync with our bodily developments and shifts in the environments surrounding us. And our stress levels also play a huge factor in our microbiotas well-being. So, how do we keep it strong and nourished?

Actibiome (And why your skin loves it) 

In recent years, the skincare industry has undergone a revolution in understanding the complex ecosystem that is our skin microbiome. Actibiome is a combination of various components that provide beneficial nutrients to support the biodiversity and homeostasis (balance) of the skin microbiota to promote an even, satisfied complexion.

By actively restoring the skin’s pH balance and natural bacteria flora, this power-packed ingredient effectively prevents bacterial accumulation (read: breakouts), irritation, and redness. With its combination of salicylic and glycolic acids, it effectively exfoliates and unclogs pores, thereby reducing excess sebum, which would otherwise end up congesting pores and lead to impurities. As if that wasn’t enough, actibiome is also known to support the skin’s natural microbiota, leaving the complexion fit-for-fight against harmful bacteria.

In other words, the addition of actibiome in skincare represents a cutting-edge approach, focusing on building strong and resilient skin from the inside out.

The benefits of actibiome in skincare

Incorporating actibiome into your skincare routine can lead to a variety of benefits that’ll leave your complexion equally thankful. We highlighted some of the effects that we love the most:

  • Improved skin barrier function: Skincare products containing actibiome help strengthen the skin's natural barrier, thereby reducing moisture loss and protecting against environmental aggressors.
  • Reduced inflammation: By promoting a balanced microbiome, skincare with actibiome can help reduce inflammation and soothe irritated skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea.
  • Breakout management: Skincare with actibiome can be particularly beneficial for individuals prone to breakouts. By targeting the underlying causes of impurities, such as bacterial imbalances and inflammation, products containing actibiome can help prevent breakouts and promote clearer skin.
  • Enhanced skin hydration: A healthy microbiome is essential for maintaining optimal skin hydration levels. Skincare products with actibiome support this balance, helping to keep the skin hydrated and supple.

Intriguing, right? Luckily, bringing the effects of actibiome to your skin is easy. At woods_, you can find actibiome in the following daily moisturizers: Daily Hydra Cream, Daily Hydra Cream Sensitive, and 24-Hour Hydra Gel. 

The takeaway? By focusing on nurturing the skin's natural microbiome, actibiome products offer a holistic approach to skincare that promotes long-term skin health and resilience. In other words; by incorporating actibiome skincare into your routine, you can support your skin's microbiome and achieve a healthier, more radiant complexion.
