View descriptionShare

Dr. Thomas Hitchcock discusses the importance of skin biome care and its role in skin health and recovery. He explains that the skin has its own ecosystem, similar to other natural ecosystems, and that imbalances in the skin biome can lead to inflammatory skin conditions. Dr. Hitchcock's research focuses on understanding the skin biome and developing skincare products that promote a healthy balance of microbes on the skin. He shares science led insights on the importance of letting the skin heal itself and using fewer, more intentional skincare products. 

Key Takeaways: 

  • While biome skincare can be used alone, actives can be added when there is a specific need or condition that requires them. 
  • In this conversation, Dr. Thomas Hitchcock discusses the importance of understanding the ingredients in skincare products and the connection between diet and skin health. 
  • Understanding the gut-skin-brain connection is key and the impact of microbes on healing and skin health. 
  • There is good evidence that incorporating biome skincare may help address the changes in aging skin, particularly in postmenopausal women.
