The benefits of skincare-infused makeup

Skincare routines are unique to each person, and understanding the benefits of ingredients can be confusing. Learn about skincare and ingredients, from microbiome-friendly makeup to the benefits of hyaluronic acid and SPF, for healthier, radiant skin

What is microbiome-friendly makeup, and why is it so good for the skin? 

Microbiome-friendly ingredients in make-up strengthen the skin barrier, balance the skin flora and reduce irritation for healthier, clearer skin. Probiotic skincare is simply about adding good bacteria to the skin. By strengthening and balancing the skin's microbiome, probiotic skin care can help the skin to:  

  • Retain moisture
  • Feel less tight, sensitive, or reactive
  • Be more flexible, supple, and soft
  • Radiate more glow

What is Hyaluronic acid, and why is it so good for the skin?

Hyaluronic acid, found in both makeup and skincare, offers numerous benefits: 

  • Hydration: It moisturizes the skin, maintaining its natural moisture balance. 
  • Volume: Hyaluronic acid plumps the skin, promoting elasticity and firmness. 
  • Radiance: It rejuvenates the skin, giving it a radiant glow.

What is SPF, and why is it important for healthy skin? 

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. It's crucial for healthy skin because it shields against harmful UV rays, preventing sunburn, premature aging, and reducing the risk of skin cancer. Regular use of sunscreen with SPF maintains skin health and appearance. 

Benefits of using SPF: 

  • Sunburn Prevention: SPF protects against sunburn, reducing discomfort and skin damage. 
  • Anti-aging: It helps prevent premature aging by shielding skin from harmful UV rays that cause wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. 
  • Skin cancer prevention: Regular use of SPF lowers the risk of skin cancer by blocking UV radiation that can damage skin cells and lead to malignancies. 
  • Maintains skin health: SPF preserves the skin's health and appearance, preventing sun-related damage and maintaining its youthful glow. 
  • Even skin tone: By protecting against sun damage, SPF helps maintain a more even skin tone and reduces the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
