Episode 51: Skin Bootcamp for Your Microbiome with Dahlia Devkota

We are going to a bootcamp! It’s not the sweat-inducing kind, this is your microbiome bootcamp! You may know about the gut microbiome already but did you know the skin also has a microbiome? It does and its health and stability is just as important when thinking of your beauty and the aging process. As we age, the skin’s epidermal layer weakens which leads to faster signs of aging. It’s also caused by “beauty burnout” when you use too many products or do too many treatments breaking down your epidermal layer.

There is a way to repair your skin’s microbiome naturally. Dahlia Devkota, a former beauty editor turned founder and CEO of Editrix, a microbiome focused luxury brand that uses advanced science to rehabilitate skin. After many years reporting from the front lines of beauty for “Allure” and “W” magazine, Dahlia stepped away from the industry. She was lured back into beauty as a brand founder when she saw a white space in the market: skincare that addressed skin’s native function through the pathway of beneficial bacteria. Collaborating with her sister, Dr. Suzanne Devkota, who is a world renowned authority on the gut microbiome, Dahlia began extensive R&D on the skin microbiome. After much research, she became thoroughly convinced that this was the most direct and effective pathway to skin health. Editrix was born. A highly concise and curated line of products using postbiotics from human beneficial bacteria to revolutionize skin.

Editrix is all about bringing the skin back to homeostasis to strengthen its natural abilities like protecting against inflammation, pollution, oxidation, and general aging. It’s simplified the product offering with 4 powerhouse products that are a rehab for your skin and promise a much-needed glow-up.
