A new era in clean, natural skincare has arrived with Trilogy’s Microbiome Complexion Renew Serum. This lightweight serum packs a potent punch with innovative postbiotic ingredients that deliver support to the natural microbiome system that lives on our skin.
What exactly is your microbiome system?
Just like your gut microbiome, your skin has one too. It's an ecosystem that sits on top of your skin barrier. It’s made up of over one billion microbes (bacteria, fungi and viruses) and the trick is to keep these microbes balanced.
If this system becomes unbalanced, your skin may begin to show signs of aging, redness, dullness, sensitivity and loss of hydration. But by nurturing and cultivating a balanced microbiome, you can work to support more hydrated, radiant looking skin.
Why is the microbiome important for skin health?
As our largest organ, we know taking care of our skin health is important, but our skin microbiome might not be at the top of our list – but it should be!
Similar to your gut microbiome, the skin microbiome is in charge of keeping your skin healthy and thriving.
A healthy and balanced microbiome supports and protects the skin's natural barrier. Disruption of these bacteria levels can lead to a weakened skin barrier, which can cause irritation and redness. As the skin’s microbiome works across skin cells, its main job is to protect our skin’s health against things like pathogens, pollution, sun damage, and environmental toxins. It’s also our natural nurturer for nourishing skin cells, so it’s important we show it some love for all the heavy lifting it does behind the scenes.
Probiotics vs Postbiotics
The term “probiotics” is often used as an umbrella term for prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics; but their functions are unique. Probiotics are the live bacteria and yeasts that make up our microbiome. Pure probiotics have a short shelf life and must be stored at low temperatures. Because they are so hard to preserve, probiotics aren't suitable for skincare.
That’s why Trilogy use postbiotics. Postbiotics are a stable form of probiotics developed through a fermentation process using non-living bacteria. These powerful compounds of good bacteria are stable, meaning they can be safely used in skincare. A topical postbiotic will work to keep the skin healthy by accelerating the skin’s microbiome renewal, supporting collagen production and your skin barrier function, and locking in hydration.
For microbiome skincare that paves the way, Trilogy’s Microbiome Complexion Renew Serum is a staple to add to your shelf.
This postbiotic powerhouse works to support a healthier, smoother and more youthful complexion for all skin types. Using certified natural and vegan-friendly ingredients, this silky serum supports even the most sensitive skin. In fact, a recent study showed that 81% felt their complexion looked healthier and noticed an improvement to skin smoothness and texture*.
Nurture and nourish your skin's microbiome with Trilogy’s hero ingredients:
- ProRenew Complex CLR™
This innovative new ingredient from Germany contains cellular components of lactococcus lactis (a bacteria). It works to improve microbial diversity and richness recovery by up to 90% in just seven days 1. This helps to strengthen, defend, and aid distressed skin for a balanced and resilient complexion.
- KALIBIOME AGE
Did you know your skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid? KALIBIOME AGE helps to increase your skin’s natural hyaluronic acid which in turn helps to plump and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. It also helps to stimulate that all important production of collagen. KALIBIOME AGE has also been shown to improve the look of redness in just three days 2.
- Ferment’Active Goji
Gently tone and restore your skin with antioxidant rich goji extract. This fermented version has 3.3x greater concentration of antioxidants than conventional goji extract 3.
This unique formulation also includes white tea for another hit of antioxidants and hydration, while the addition of rosehip seed oil has been included for its nourishing and renewing properties.
Holistic ways to support your skin’s microbiome
- Nutrition and hydration
Staying hydrated and maintaining a balanced diet is key in supporting a healthy skin microbiome. Provide your skin with the vitamins and minerals it needs by incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and lean protein into your meals. Eating fibre-rich foods – ones that build good gut bacteria through fermentation – cultivates a good balance of healthy bacteria throughout the body and on the skin.
- Healthy stress management
In addition to nourishing your body with good food and water, one of the best things you can do for your skin’s microbiome is to take time out to unwind and relax. We know that stress creates inflammation in the body as well as more oxidative radicals which can in turn lead to increased skin aging. Mindfulness practices like meditation and yoga can help with managing stress levels.
While we sleep, our bodies work to remove built-up toxins and remove them from our system. But when we face disruptions in sleep or lack of, it puts pressure on both our gut and skin bacteria. Making sure we get enough sleep each night encourages our skin cells to rebuild balance and maintain its protective barrier.
Your guide to a nourishing skincare ritual to support your skin’s microbiome
For a gentle skincare ritual that’s kind to your microbiome, we recommend:
Wipe the day’s makeup and grime away by cleaning your skin with warm water and a gentle cleanser. For an option that is dermatologically approved for sensitive skin, we recommend trying Trilogy’s Very Gentle Cleansing Cream.
For a refreshing and soothing next step, we suggest toning to support rehydration. Trilogy’s Hydrating Mist Toner is a delicate, aromatic hydration mist providing instant moisture for thirsty skin.
Once your skin is cleansed, massage in Trilogy’s Microbiome Complexion Renew Serum packed with postbiotics to lock in moisture and bring balance and vibrancy back to your skin.
Finish up with a revitalising moisturiser such as Trilogy’s Very Gentle Moisturising Cream to help soothe and restore your skin.
