The skin is the human body’s largest organ, colonized by a diverse milieu of microorganisms, most of which are harmless or even beneficial to their host. This ecosystem, unique in each of us, is composed of living biological and physical components that cohabitate in a delicate balance. Disruptions in this balance can result in skin disorders, infections, compromised immunity, digestive disorders and even alterations in chemical markers throughout the human genome.I had the fortune of discussing how to support this balance in further detail with certified nutritionist and health coach, Mia Rigden. If you missed the live convo, here are some key takeaways: - LINNÉ products are pH balanced and are made exclusively with preservatives that support the microbiome.
