It is quite fascinating how good and clean food nourishes our bodies daily. And what’s even more astonishing is the fact that we have beneficial microorganisms residing in us (our gut), or on our skin which aid in giving us protection and a strong immune system. The healthy food that we consume usually has probiotics or prebiotics in them -- a natural source of nutrition that can never amount to anything.
The ones we orally consume mostly benefit the gut.
What about our skin? What contribution does prebiotics have on our largest organ? And how do we take advantage of it, especially when we are expecting?
Prebiotics are considered a “superfood” for our good bacteria. Whether in our gut or skin, these prebiotics healthily feed and cultivate the microorganisms in our body so that when consumed, they can all function at an optimal level. As a result, our body reaps the rewards. Our skin microbiome has thousands (maybe even millions) of bacteria working independently or as a team to restore and vitalize our skin.
When we continuously provide for our skin microbiome, particularly by applying skincare that has prebiotics, these are the benefits:
Reduction of unwanted and damaging bacteria Our ph level is restored
Microbiome recovery is accelerated – it speeds up the recovery of the skin's first line of defense and enhances the conditions for the microbiome to thrive
We get a more strengthened skin barrier
These results are even more favorable for those who are pregnant.
That is why we developed Flourish -- a prenatal lotion like no other -- because we believe in the powerful preservation the prebiotic ingredients provide for an expectant mom's skin. Given that pregnancy hormones go wild, this situation sometimes is a bane to our belly-growing body. So, having Flourish is like a breath of fresh air.
Flourish is a plant-based prebiotic lotion. It is certified natural, non-toxic, eco-friendly, vegan, cruelty-free, and is GMO, chemical, and paraben-free, as well as free of all dyes and fragrances.
It is also safe for the whole family, including babies.
It is not every day that we can come across a skincare that is infused with 2x prebiotic, has 3 active ingredients, and is also 100% plant-based.
Flourish provides the ff too:
✔It hydrates the skin, delivers rapid and long term skin nourishment
✔Plumps and firms skin
✔It increases the collagen production, which greatly impacts the anti-aging appearance ✔Effective in the reduction of symptoms of eczema, atopic dermatitis, contact dermatitis, psoriasis, rosacea, and the likes
✔Significantly improves complexion and skin radiance
✔It accelerates the repairing of problematic skin; reduces the appearance of stretch marks, scars, burns, blemishes, and wrinkles
Flourish also works wonders on skin types that are dull, dehydrated, sensitive, has constant itchiness, and irritation.
Taking advantage of these prebiotics can come easy as long as we stick to a healthy skincare regimen, be always wary of what we put on our skin, eat the right foods, hydrate, and also, share what we know with our family members. After all, we ceaselessly care for them as much as we care for our bodies.￼
