Cleanse, moisturise and exfoliate – and plenty of water for hydration...

As summer approaches, we’re reminded to take extra care of our skin. After a winter hiding under layers, it needs some pampering before emerging. As well as introducing new steps into our beauty routines, we might choose more nutritious foods, knowing that eating well is vital for skin health.

What are prebiotics for skin?

Put simply, prebiotics in skincare help to promote a thriving microbiome.

But what is your skin’s microbiome, exactly? It’s the term for the trillions of microorganisms that live on your skin’s surface, guarding its barrier. For optimal microbiome health, it’s all down to the fine balance between each tiny member of this environment.

So how do we improve this microbiome balance? That’s where prebiotics come in. These special skincare ingredients promote the ‘good’ bacteria that keep things in check, ensuring your skin is functioning at its best. They not only create a strong, resilient barrier to protect against environmental stressors and dehydration, but also the natural glow that only comes from beautiful skin health.

Our best prebiotic skincare ingredients

Like the many unique elements that come together for healthy skin, different prebiotic ingredients do different things. They all help to protect the skin's barrier, but some also promote regeneration, stimulate hydration, and combat signs of ageing.

We'd love to tell you about some of our hero prebiotics, perfect for indulging your post-winter skin.

Prebiulin Aga

This naturally powerful and hydrating prebiotic is extracted from chicory roots. It's super-protective, guarding against all kinds of skin concerns, from dryness to sensitivity.

Vita Arctic

With its anti-inflammatory properties, this prebiotic is intensely soothing. As well as leaving your skin smooth, this toning, natural wonder enhances firmness and elasticity.
