“The Good Bacteria on Your Skin Could Tackle Your Wrinkles”

Your skin microbiome could impact how quickly you age

According to new research, the microbiome of ageing skin looks different to that of “younger” skin.

The study used two groups of women, splitting them up by age and tested different characteristics on their skin.

The results showed that the diversity and number of certain species on the skin microbiome differed between the two groups.

"We found numerous changes in the diversity and types of different microbes on ageing facial skin".

Interestingly, the findings reveal a link between the “skin biophysical features and aging-related changes in the skin microbiome“.

Understanding more about how the skin microbiome affects ageing could revolutionise treatments for the skin and in general.

Therefore, could your skin microbiome impact how you age?
