We have definitely heard a lot about Probiotics and Prebiotics in skincare, but have you ever heard of Postbiotics? Possibly not, but now you have! Meet BiomeRenew™. BiomeRenew is a revolutionary skincare range that features an active ingredient called PostBiotics, which is a first in Africa.
What are Post-biotics?
"Postbiotic skincare products contain non-viable bacterial products or metabolic by-products from probiotic bacteria. Postbiotics are produced during the fermentation process of probiotic bacteria."
4 Benefits of Post-biotics:
Anti-oxidants protect skin by limiting the production of free radicals, which can damage skin cells thus reduces the signs of ageing. Reducing inflammation, UV Damage and repairing damage from pollutants resulting in toned skin.
Anti Collagenase Activity
In order to prevent dermal matrix degradation we need to preserve the extra cellular matrix. BiomeRenew ensures collagen (an important protein in the skin) is boosted resulting in plump skin.
Glycation is the damage to proteins caused by sugar molecules. (Yes think diet here!) BiomeRenew preserves against the destructive effects of glycation and help boost the skins healing. Glycation causes skin proteins to become stiff, malformed, weak, lose their elasticity and become discoloured.Showing up as wrinkles, dullness and a weakened barrier function on the skin.
Postbiotics provide significant anti-inflammatory activity without affecting the cell viability. Helping preserve skin inflammation induced by pollutants, allergens, UV and ionizing radiations.
Before & After on myself
Having been battling with my skin lately I was so impressed with the immediate results. There's nothing worse when you feeling inflamed, sore and red! In a world where so much pressure is put on physical appearance, having acne can seriously affect self-esteem and confidence.
Not only have I been seeing the immediate calming effects on my skin I have also been seeing improved texture, colour, hydration levels (superficial lines) and can only imagine the anti-ageing benefits with long term use.
Since all the products are fragrance free, don't expect the most luxurious of scents... It's an organic probiotic smell and quite frankly it takes two uses to get used to it.
Now that you have seen the results for yourself let's dive into the benefits of each product & what they can be used for.
