Skin care trend in 2017: Probiotics

A lot has been done to protect the skin from the pollution and attacks from the environment. We have been paying attention to our pores, cells renewal rate and now it’s time to care about our Microbiota. It might gross you out but we are sharing our body space with a lovely ecological community (bacteria, fungi, and archaea). The bad news is some of them will affect your immune system and your skin’s health. The good news is a lot of them  perform tasks that are known to be useful for us.

Bye bye bad bacteria

Once again Korea and Japan are one step ahead. As part of their beauty routine, Korean women incorporated  double cleansing. The first one would remove the makeup and the second one would take care of the excess of oil, bacteria and other impurity that might be clogging your pores. According to Charlotte Cho, blogger at Soko Glam you coud also go for a triple cleanse, have a look at her 10-step Program.

If it wasn’t enough, Korea and Japan witnessed the rise of digital tools to analyse the skin. In combination with their beauty routine, some Korean women use tools to make sure their skin is at its best at any given moment.
