Benefits of Probiotics

Topical probiotics work to strengthen the skin’s natural defenses by forming a type of ‘protective shield’ on the skin’s surface. They also help to maintain a healthy balance in the skin’s microbiome by maximizing the benefits of ‘good’ bacteria, thus strengthening the skin’s natural defenses. This, in combination with HylaFusion®, our patented ingredient which acts like a second skin, makes your skin more resistant to damage from environmental stresses, helps maintain hydration, reduces inflammation and redness, improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and helps minimize UV damage.

What is the Microbiome?

Most people think the helpful bacteria that reside in our bodies are mainly in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract. However, our skin is also covered with them. The skin supports a delicate ecosystem of microorganisms, including good and bad bacteria. In fact, one square inch of skin holds up to 500 million microorganisms.

Good bacteria protect our skin from unwanted harmful bacteria. When the bad bacteria overpower the good, skin irritation and inflammation can develop, and can manifest as acne and other serious skin conditions. Which is why restoring the skin’s natural balance is so important and is key to maintaining healthy, beautiful skin.

We are making difference to your skin with the addition of probiotics to our hydrating day lotion and intensive hydrating day cream to nourish your vital microbiome.

Six Dermatological Breakthroughs to Defy Age

Some of the best skincare breakthroughs to keep your skin healthy.

When it comes to proper skincare, no one understands the fundamentals and process quite like Irene Michaels.  As such, she also knows just how much time, effort, and frustration can go into trying to beat the aging process.  In her years or acting and modeling, maintaining healthy and youthful skin has become an art that she has had to maintain a certain level of expertise in.  Because fighting the aging process is an even more difficult and frustrating thing to do for those of us who aren’t experts in the field, she has put together her list of the top dermatological breakthroughs to defy age.  Some of these include:

Antioxidants

One of the best and easiest ways to keep your skin healthy is simply to eat the right foods.  Make sure that you include foods such as cranberries, blueberries, blackberries, beans, artichokes, and other antioxidant rich foods in your diet to keep up your reserves of this all-important nutrient.  Irene’s suggestion is to look into making the recently discovered Coffee Berry part of your diet.  This berry thrives when heavily exposed to the sun’s rays, making it one of the best foods out there for replenishing antioxidants.

Advanced Wrinkle-Filling Injections

The word “injections” might not be the most welcome phrase for some people.  However, Irene points out that these injections are still much less invasive than surgery and and are very effective in combating collagen loss.  These injections typically are priced between $500 and $1000, but they will essentially make your skin feel and work as if it was 10 years younger, so they are an excellent option if it fits within your budget.

Peptides

15th-product-shotIrene explains in her article that, in the context of cosmology, peptides refer to very specific chains of amino acids that aid in the replacement of collagen in the skin.  Luckily, Eraclea has you covered there!  Our Hydrating Day Lotion for Normal to Oily Skin blends peptides, extracts, and vitamins to keep your skin peptide-rich and retain its ability to self-replenish. Peptides are also present in all of our moisturizing products, including out day cream, night cream, and eye cream.
