Keeping Your Microbiome in Check: The Secret to a Healthy Skin and Immune System

Updated: Feb 21

The microbiome is an ecosystem made up of trillions of microorganisms that live in and on our bodies. These include bacteria, fungi, and viruses which aid in various functions such as digestion, immunity, and skin health. For our health and wellbeing, it's crucial to maintain the balance of these beneficial microbes. One significant way we can achieve this is through our skincare and dietary habits.

The Skin's Microbiome and its Role in Health 

The skin, the body's largest organ, contains thousands of different microbes. For every skin cell, about 30 microbes live beneath it. These bugs, while microscopic, play a massive role in maintaining our health. 

A healthy skin microbiome aids in preventing harmful substances from penetrating the skin. It helps reduce inflammation and can be closely linked with conditions like acne, eczema, and even aging of the skin. Disruptions in the skin microbiome can lead to these conditions, as well as causing a phenomenon known as "leaky skin," similar to the well-known "leaky gut" syndrome.

Leaky Skin and its Impact on Health

The notion of "leaky skin" is relatively new in the field of health science. When your skin microbe balance shifts, it immediately affects the skin's structure, making it unable to function effectively. This condition leads to symptoms such as dryness, inflammation, thinning of the skin, hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles. Ultimately, leaky skin also contributes to a system-wide inflammation which can negatively impact your overall health.

Serene Skin and SIV Care: The Revolution in Skincare

Rebalancing your skin microbiome can be accomplished effectively with some revolutionary products like Serene Skin and SIV. Severe Skin is an ingestible prebiotic that helps to prevent leaky gut, drives an increase in healthy skin microbiome, promotes short-chain fatty acid production, and helps battle skin-related issues from the inside out.

SIV, or Skin IV, on the other hand, is a kind of serum that introduces quorum-sensing microbes onto your skin. These are transient microbes that can read and adapt to the microbial environment of your skin, and when needed, produce compounds that make the harmful microbes less dominant while promoting the growth of beneficial ones. 

These two products are not just giving you great skin but they are also enhancing your skin's health, making you less prone to diseases and other chronic conditions.


Our skin is more than just the body's protective shield or a canvas for beauty; it's a complex ecosystem that communicates regularly with our immune system. Taking care of your skin does not only mean keeping it moisturized and protected from the sun. True skin care involves nourishing it from the inside and out, prioritizing the balance of your skin microbiome. Rather than seeing the skin care routine as a chore or a vanity, recognizing it as a health investment can mean a world of difference to our wellbeing.
