Disrupting the balance and harmony

between us and our good bacteria

Dysbiosis - Hallmarks of aging

The collection of microorganisms present on and living in harmony with the skin play essential roles in its overall health and protection from pathogens. With age, a decline in microbiome diversity and its interaction with the host (dysbiosis) can promote skin aging.⁽¹⁻²⁾

The gut microbiome (the collection of microorganisms in the gut) plays an important role in overall health. Disruption of the bacteria-host interaction as we grow older can result in an imbalance (or dysbiosis) and contribute to several diseases.

Understanding the role of the skin microbiome and its imbalance due to aging could be crucial for gaining a holistic view on reverse skin aging.⁽¹⁻²⁾
