Columnist at BeautyHack, founder of natural cosmetics brand Vita Liasota (@ natureal.ua) told how the microbiome affects the condition of the skin, why do you need a tonic for your face and whether you need to use a cream.

“I have always believed that I have problem skin and nothing can be done about it. Until I delved into the study of the issue, I did not change the approach to nutrition and care. There are many reasons for rashes and oily sheen. And one of them is the disruption of the microbiome and pH. I'll tell you how I managed to turn my skin from problem to normal. Perhaps my experience will be useful for someone."
Change the way you eat
This is the first thing to start with in the fight for beautiful skin. Try an experiment. Eliminate dairy products, fruits, sweets, red meat, bread, chicken, oatmeal and corn porridge from the diet for 3-4 weeks. Set aside fish, eggs (one per day), vegetables, berries, seafood, nuts (except for peanuts and cashews), unrefined vegetable oils in the diet. Grill or steam food. I guarantee you won't recognize your skin in a couple of weeks!
Remove mass-market products from the beauty diet
Most often, aggressive grooming leads to disruption of the skin microbiome. Too alkaline foams, tonics and softners (especially with sulfates in the composition) wash off both bad and good bacteria from the surface of the dermis, provoking inflammation and other "amenities". Schedule a 3-4 day detox for your skin by cutting out all skincare products. Just leave her alone, rubbing her face with a lemon wedge. It promotes microbiome repair.
Do not use products containing alcohol
Our body works according to the compensatory principle. If he is deprived of something, he plans to produce this “something” even faster. For example, sebum. If you use an alcohol-based skincare product, dry skin that needs hydration will make the sebaceous glands work even faster.
Wash your face with water from a bottle
In the morning, the main task of care is to eliminate excess sebum. And for this, just pure water is enough. Only not from the tap, but from the bottle. If this is not enough for you, use ubtan (Ayurvedic herbal powder), diluting it to the consistency of liquid sour cream. By the way, it can be used as a mask for problem skin - a very versatile remedy.
Use toner for your skin type
The tonic should be free of alcohol, fragrances and aggressive components in the composition. It restores the pH of the skin after washing. With the right choice of means, it can be the only stage of cleansing.
Do not use the cream every day
The skin needs to be allowed to work independently. The cream is the crutch on which she rests! If there is no feeling of dryness, there is no need to use it every day.
Remove makeup with hydrophilic oil
When treating the skin, it is better to give up makeup altogether. But if for some reason you cannot do this, use a hydrophilic oil to remove makeup. Upon contact with water, it turns into an emulsion that perfectly cleans the pores from excess sebum, dust, and heavy metal salts.
