Skin in balance
The skin surface is coated with a film consisting of billions of microorganisms that form the natural skin flora and are decisively important to skin health. This so-called skin microbiome consists of bacteria, fungi and viruses. A healthy microbiome has a balanced ratio of a large variety of microorganisms that support an intact skin barrier.
External influences such as frequent washing, dry heating air and unsuitable care products can impair the balance of the skin flora. This stresses the skin and reduces its ability to protect itself. It becomes more susceptible to external influences. It tends to become dry, red with a feeling of tension and may react more sensitively to external influences.
