Simple Skincare is Good Skincare!

 

A good skincare routine doesn’t need to have dozens of steps. Doing too much to your skin can disrupt your microbiome and stress your body’s natural ability to take care of itself. 

Here’s an example of a simple, effective routine:

  1. Use a gentle cleanser. Over the course of the day, your skin can accumulate sweat, dirt, and toxins from your environment. It is important to get rid of those things to keep your skin healthy, but it is equally important to not strip your skin of it’s natural oils or disrupt the balance of your microbiome. A simple cleanser that is gentle on the skin is ideal.
  2. Treat your skin concerns. There are many products available that can help with various skin concerns. Vitamin C is great for brightening overall skin tone and reducing the appearance of scars. Retinols can be helpful for anti-aging. Simple moisturizers can relieve dryness. A probiotic treatment encourages your skin to take care of itself by balancing the microbiome and clearing up skin imperfections. Pick one or more, but avoid harsh ingredients - you don’t want to undo all the hard work your skin is already doing to take care of itself.
  3. Wear sunscreen. We all hear this one constantly and for good reason. Between preventing wrinkles and preventing skin cancer, there is no reason to ever skip this step.
  4. Take care of yourself. Eat foods that are good for your body, drink water, and for goodness’ sake, get some sleep! The best way to take care of any body part, including your skin, is to take care of your body as a whole. Your body is working hard to take care of you, so take time and effort to care for your body.

The great thing about a probiotic skincare product is that it can be incorporated into any regimen. Theo Sterling Skin Clarifying and Probiotic Balancing Mist is a powerful and effective way to remove bad bacteria and encourage the growth of good bacteria, which leads to clear and healthy skin.
