In 2020, there’s no shortage of information on all of the ingredients people claim you absolutely need for your skin, from retinoids to acids to creams promising to give you new skin overnight. And when I subscribed to the idea that I needed to try them all, my skin got worse—way worse. It didn’t take a genius to figure out why: I was using too much, and all the harsh ingredients I was slathering on every night were actually hurting my skin’s natural microbiome, leaving me with irritation and dryness abound. And with the culture surrounding skincare right now, I think this is happening to more of us than we might think.
Enter: Mother Dirt, the pioneers of probiotic skincare. You probably already know about the potential benefits of taking a probiotic, but why would you want them in your skincare? In the past, there was a healthy, peacekeeping bacteria that existed on human’s skin called Ammonia-Oxidizing Bacteria (AOB), but with harsher chemicals being incorporated into skincare and our lifestyles changing over time, the bacteria have gotten wiped away. In 2015, the founders of Mother Dirt—who were MIT scientists—recognized this and started a brand that incorporated AOB into its products to help balance the skin. They didn’t believe there was such a thing as bad skin—just bad skincare.
To give you something good in 2020, Mother Dirt is giving three of our readers a gift package worth over $200, chock-full of their biome-friendly collection that covers everything from your skin to your hair. Three winners will receive Mother Dirt’s Biome-Friendly Shampoo, Cleanser, Moisturizer, Body Oil, Body Wash, Shave Butter, and AO+ Mist—all formulated to keep your skin’s microbiome thriving, leaving you with glowing, healthier skin.
