The Beauty Serum Recommended for Sensitive Skin Taught Me the Importance of Making My Skin Adaptable to Various Environments
As it gets much colder, dry skin becomes a worry. Try “LOQZIN Biome Gel,” containing loquat extract, the beauty ingredient that’s in the news, and rediscover the importance of “balancing microorganisms on the skin” to keep skin healthy.
When the seasons change, I tend to alter my beauty products and try new ones. This time I tried “LOQZIN Biome Gel” because I heard that it is recommended for sensitive skin. This cosmetic product, made in Japan, is formulated with the moisturizing agent LOQZIN, which is made from loquat extract using traditional Japanese fermentation technology.
I was aware that loquat has a strong vitality, but was not aware of its benefit as a beauty ingredient. When I used the product, it absorbed mildly into my skin, and the best part was that my skin become firm and radiant. I also tried applying it on my hands which were rough because of alcohol hand sanitizers and frequent hand washing. And, I was surprised that the skin seemed to be replenished again and felt like it was plumped with moisture.
This product focuses on the relationship between skin and microbiota and helps adjust their balance. We often hear about enterobacteria from the media, but we also have indigenous bacteria on our skin. I realized again the importance of the balance of microbiomes on the skin. Skin that is adaptable to various environments is healthy skin.
I also love the ecological packaging which is made of recyclable material.
