Get to know the skin microbiome. What it is and how to protect it?
A closer look at the skin microbiome
The skin microbiome – wondering what it is? Simply put, it’s the ecosystem of millions of bacteria, fungi and viruses living on our skin, protecting it from pathogens. When this ecosystem is balanced, our skin looks healthy, however when the balance is disrupted, it becomes damaged and flaky.
How can you protect your skin microbiome?
Shower with filtered water. The nasties in hard water throw off our microbiome, filtering removes these.
A Vitaclean shower head also injects your water with Vitamin C and essential oils to increase moisture levels.
Don’t turn up the heat. While it’s tempting to step under a steamy shower, hot water dries out the natural sebum in our skin.
Stay hydrated. Being dehydrated can negatively affect your microbiome, it’s recommended to drink 64 ounces of water each day.
A Vitaclean shower head not only filters unwanted particles out of your shower water, but it also infuses your water with a dose of Vitamin C, too. The triple filtered water benefits the function of a healthy skin barrier. And the best bit? Added essential oils make your skin soft and your shower smell divine.
