Anti Aging Beauty Tips


Dear Reader,

Did you know most of the cells making up our body are actually bacteria? As a physician specializing in allergies, asthma and immunology, several years ago I began learning about the human microbiome – the trillions of microbes that live in harmony on our bodies’ surfaces, from our intestines to our skin. Because these friendly microbes have biological benefits required for healthy skin, it makes good sense for us to care about our microbiomes.

Healthy skin microbiomes help our bodies fight the many factors that contribute to skin aging and wrinkling. Environmental toxins and disease can damage the skin, weakening its ability to repair itself. UV radiation in sunlight causes age spots and wrinkles. The skin keratin and moisture contained naturally within the skin reduce with age, causing sagging and wrinkles. BioEsse Probiotic Skin Care products can help! BioEsse is a natural, elegant, effective anti aging healthy-skin solution. Qi ProBiomics, the active ingredient in BioEsse products, can help keep your skin as smooth, strong and beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside!

Sincerely,

Eva A. Berkes, MD

Stress and Your Microbiome!

  Stress and Your Microbiome! The University of Guelph (U of G), a comprehensive public research university in Guelph, Ontario, Canada recently led the first study of its kind to understand the relationship between stress and the microbiome as published in the journal of Biology Letters. U of G researchers found that red squirrels living in a low-stress environment harbored healthier communities of micro-organisms. Conversely, the greater the stress, when measured in the same squirrels two weeks later, revealed less bacterial diversity which could be an indication of poor health. It’s very possible these findings hold important implications for human health! Just to fill in a few blanks, microbiomes are all of the clusters e.g. communities of micro-organisms thriving in and on...

The Link Between Probiotics and Allergy Relief

  The Link Between Probiotics and Allergy Relief It’s no secret that allergy season is in full swing, and this time of year is brutal for allergy sufferers.  The scratchy eyes, sneezing, runny nose…sometimes it feels like there’s no medicine strong enough to tackle the symptoms!  But a recent University of Florida study discovered that there might be a connection between probiotics and allergy symptom relief!  Research has already shown that probiotics promote digestive health and stimulate the immune system, but scientists also suspect that they increase “the human body’s percentage of regulatory T-cells, which in turn might increase tolerance to hay fever symptoms.” So UF tested 137 individuals to find out if a probiotic combination of lactobacilli and bifidobacteria,...

Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #4 Smoother Skin

    Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #4 Smoother Skin You may already know that eating or taking probiotics can improve your internal health, making things work better. But as the doctors, scientists and researchers at Quorum Innovations have discovered, applying their patented probiotic - Qi ProBiomics - directly to the skin produces the same benefits. All of us have good and bad bacteria on our skin, just as we do in our guts.  The good ones are called “probiotics” and when there is an imbalance between the two, acne or rosacea can occur as well as opening the door to letting impurities in, including disease. Importantly, the right balance can also make skin look smoother which ultimately means younger-looking...

Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #3 Brighten Your Skin

  Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #3 Brighten Your Skin The real beauty “secret” to glowing skin may, in fact, lie in a healthy skin microbiome. If you’ve been following our blogs, you know that the skin microbiome is the name for the trillions of health-promoting bacteria on your skin.  These microbes protect us from diseases and environmental toxins, produce vitamins and other nutrients, and regulate our immune system.  We are learning that healthy, glowing skin requires a healthy skin microbiome.  And at BioEsse, we have thoughtfully created our products with this in mind.  BioEsse is specifically designed to support optimal skin microbiome balance with our patented probiotic extract (Qi) and to replenish lost skin lipids with our 5-Omega Blend....

Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #2 Stronger Skin

  Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #2 Stronger Skin It’s generally known that probiotics are good for our digestive systems. Just in case you don’t know, probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts, and our bodies are full of them – both good and bad. Probiotics are often called the "good" or "helpful" ones because they keep the gut healthy. Probiotics to strengthen the skin, however, are not so well known. Skin is the first line of defense against disease. It’s also constantly exposed to the elements like cold harsh winters and the damaging rays of the sun, not to mention pollution and toxins floating around in the air. Bottom line, healthy skin is critical and reflects our overall health. As such, keeping it strong is just...

Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #1 Balanced Skin

  Key Benefits for Healthy Skin: #1 Balanced Skin Just like taking probiotics to support trillions of healthy intestinal bacteria, supporting health-promoting bacteria on the skin is also important.  These microbes are called the skin microbiome, and they support efficient skin healing, skin immunity, and skin rejuvenation. Maintaining a healthy skin microbiome may be the best-kept beauty secret to date.  A powerful yet neglected anti-aging tool, a balanced skin microbiome is an essential partner for healthy, glowing skin.  This brings us to the first benefit of BioEsse®:  balanced skin.  Skin is our largest and most external body organ, constantly interacting with the environment.  Harsh skin care products, modern processed diets, polluted air and water, and environmental chemicals threaten and distort...

Probiotics for the Skin…as Natural and Essential as Water

  Most people generally know drinking water is a good thing for the body. Its biggest job is to circulate nutrients - when we are dehydrated, things just do not work as well.  Water also makes us less cranky – yes, dehydration can cause headaches and/or affect your mood.  Other benefits for the body include better athletic performance since water composes 75% of muscle tissue, it’s a natural appetite suppressant and helps us have less joint pain by keeping cartilage soft and hydrated. What people may not be aware of though is that drinking water also hydrates the skin and keeps it healthy. Skin being the largest organ in our bodies is an indicator of our overall health and wellbeing and relies...

5 Myths about Probiotics

Bacteria often get a bad rep in the health world. Not all bacteria are bad, however. Many don’t realize that good bacteria exist in our body and should be promoted, not repressed or killed. One way to support good bacteria is through probiotics, which come in an array of forms. There are common misconceptions surrounding probiotics. Here are five de-bunked myths about them: Myth #1: Avoid microbes at all cost Wrong! There is a stigma surrounding microbes, a type of bacterial microorganism found in each and every one of us. That’s right, our bodies contain millions of microbes, 99% of which are beneficial to our health. By taking probiotics, you are actually supporting your microbes, your body’s healthy bacteria.

The Trouble with Antibiotics

Getting rid of bacteria in your body seems like a no-brainer, right? Wrong. Today there is a widespread abuse of antibiotics that is actually putting people at risk for health problems and immune deficiencies. Studies show a link between the use of antibiotics and developmental inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). While this does not necessarily suggest the IBD is a direct effect of antibiotic use, it still proves that the two are associated. The antibiotics you ingest aren’t the only problems for your immunities. Anti-bacterial wipes, soaps and hand sanitizers are culprits, too. Over-using antibiotics, antibacterial soaps and more is actually harmful to the human body. Microbes – microorganisms that are often bacteria – are not always bad for you. In...

Find Your Balance:
Benefits of probiotics while taking antibiotics

Our bodies are full of bacteria – often good, but sometimes not so good.  In certain cases of illnesses, antibiotics are administered to kill off the bad bacteria. Consequently, good bacteria also take a hit and are broken down by the antibiotics. For those of you who care about caring for your microbes, there is a natural way to accomplish restoring balance to your body. Where there is an antibiotic, there is a probiotic that can help balance it! Research shows that it’s wise to supplement the use of antibiotics with probiotics in order to replenish good bacteria and keep antibiotic side effects at bay. Here’s how you can help bring balance to your body: Eat some yogurt! Yogurt lovers,...

Benefits of Using a Konjac Sponge

If you haven’t already heard of a konjac sponge, you are in for a real treat. Derived from a plant that is native to Asia, the konjac sponge is an all-natural and exotic approach to skincare. The Japanese have used the konjac plant for nearly 1,500 years as a healthy dietary supplement or cooking ingredient. Over time, external uses for the konjac plant developed. The konjac plant was formed into a sponge and used for infants and young children for approximately 500 years. If something is soft enough to be used on babies then you can bet it is gentle enough for your skin, too. Many people turn to rough chemicals to exfoliate and cleanse their skin, but at BioEsse...

The Damages of Pollution on Your Skin

As you might already know, healthy skin starts from the inside out. The combination of a good diet, ample sleep and frequent water drinking is almost a sure-fire way of keeping your skin – and the rest of your body, for that matter – in healthy shape. With the recent spike of pollution, however, damage to our skin often happens from the outside in. Pollution doesn’t just sit on the surface of our skin and do outside damage, either. Microscopic particles work their way into the deeper layers of our skin, causing problems like inflammation and dehydration. Over time, pollution in your skin can cause even worse side effects like loss of elasticity and firmness. These issues especially exist in...

Sometimes you should sweat the small stuff: How sweating benefits your skin

When we think about sweating, we tend to think about exercising, withstanding warm temperatures or even a bodily response to nerves, but a natural form of skincare? That one is much less common. However, little do people know you can actually benefit your skin by “sweating it out” on a semi-regular basis. Along with a proper skincare regimen, working up a sweat can help rejuvenate your skin. Sweat works better than a detox Sweating is the most affordable skin detox you can find. It opens up pores, flushing them out and allowing the body to release toxins. While this is good for removing the buildup that naturally occurs within pores, it is important to finish the job and wash off...

Three things you’ll notice immediately after taking probiotics

Even those of us who live out the most cautious of lifestyles can fail to realize that their body is not in balance or lacks certain nutrients. Unfortunately, how cleanliness has been portrayed, especially with regards to women’s beauty and hygiene, has been skewed in favor of big companies that create products that don’t always benefit our health. In fact, some products that we have used for years contain chemicals and other ingredients that can cause illness and discomfort. Fortunately, the FDA has been enforcing stricter regulations that put the consumer’s interest and health concerns first. While there is so much still to learn about how we can treat our bodies to the healthiest lifestyle ever, breakthroughs in probiotic science...

The 5 Worst Chemicals in Beauty Products

Check all of your labels - here is our list of the top 5 most dangerous chemicals to avoid.

How sleep affects your microbiome

We’ve known for a long time that there is a deep connection between sleep and our health. Having a full night’s rest can work wonders for our sense of well-being, our physical and cognitive abilities, our appetite and more. In the same vein, not having a full night’s sleep can wreak havoc on our performance at work, our relationships with our friends and families and our tiredness shows almost immediately in our faces.

Skin Treatments for Women Over 40

With common issues such as blotchiness, uneven skin tone, deep wrinkles, under-eye bags and dry skin, it can be challenging to find a skincare line that does its job well. Either systems work but they have chemicals that negatively affect skin, or some natural products do not have enough power to combat the usual issues women over 40 often face. Some commonly used skincare products today contain harsh chemicals such as parabens, triclosan, toluene, formaldehyde and other words that are hard to pronounce and hard on your skin. Our skin is our first line of defense against illnesses...

The Benefits of Probiotics

Probiotics may seem like the health and fitness buzzword of the day, but they’re so much more than that. Meaning “For Life,” Probiotics come in different forms and from different sources and can have tremendous health benefits to us from everything from digestion, to strengthening our immune system, and even to our mental health.

Anti-Aging and Probiotics

You may have heard about all the benefits of probiotics in health and lifestyle magazines, and for good reason. Probiotics are active bacteria and yeasts that promote healthy bodily functions - functions that are necessary for life such as regulating our metabolism and digestion, nutrient absorption and more. We usually think of bacteria as something that causes illness and disease, but your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep your gut healthy. In short, without them, we would cease to exist rather quickly. Having an imbalance of healthy gut bacteria has been linked to a series of chronic diseases, both physical and emotional, that can lead...
