Prebiotics are ingredients that nourish the skin's good bacteria, also known as the skin microbiome. The skin microbiome is the ecosystem of bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms that live on the skin's surface and play a crucial role in skin health. Prebiotics promote the growth of good bacteria in the skin, which helps strengthen the skin barrier and improve skin function.

In an anti-aging facial treatment, the addition of prebiotics strengthens the skin barrier and helps maintain the balance of the skin microbiome. A healthy skin barrier is important because it maintains skin hydration and helps prevent trans epidermal water loss, which can lead to dry, dull and wrinkled skin.

Additionally, imbalance in the skin microbiome has been linked to skin problems such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. By using an anti-aging facial treatment containing prebiotics, we can help maintain the balance of the skin microbiome.

Finally, prebiotics reduce skin inflammation. Studies have shown that prebiotics calm inflammatory reactions in the skin, which helps reduce redness, irritation, and signs of premature skin aging.

In summary, the addition of prebiotics to an anti-aging facial treatment strengthens the skin barrier, maintains the balance of the skin microbiome, prevents the appearance of skin problems and reduces inflammation of the skin. This helps improve the health and appearance of the skin, especially as part of a comprehensive anti-aging skincare regime.
