Thanks to the microbiome test offered by the company Gallinée (acquired by Shiseido in 2022) It is now possible to have a complete map of the condition of your skin: its real age, its strengths and also its shortcomings. Gallinée’s “Skin Health and Microbiome Test” offers a set of personalized recommendations.
Like a living shield on the surface of the skin, the microbiome is a colony of beneficial bacteria that provide the first defense against the outside world. Its balance is based on the harmonious distribution of the microorganisms that make it up. The equation is simple: The richer and more diverse the skin microbiome, the healthier the skin. When the microbiome is in balance, it can maintain moisture levels, visibly improve feelings of dryness, tightness, and discomfort, and reduce the risk of redness and sensitivity. So how do you know it’s in balance? By taking a test.
The test offered by Gallinée consists of two parts. First, all you have to do at home is follow the instructions that come with the kit, it’s that simple!
To collect skin information, first place the patch on the forehead and hold with gentle pressure for ten seconds, then place it in the collection tube, place the tube in an envelope and send it to the laboratory. After four weeks, the results will be sent to your address. A precise and in-depth analysis that lets you know the diversity of your microbiome and a prescription that shows what is beneficial to it.
Even faster and more effective, Lancome’s Skin Display It performs a skin diagnosis that is as simple as it is precise. This diagnosis, currently performed at the flagship of the Champs Elysées, gives a score ranging from 0 to 100 based on dermatological evaluations. The Lancôme beauty consultant explains the results obtained for each parameter and provides personalized advice, offering personalized treatment.
Lancôme’s test takes two minutes to analyze and determine the skin care routine (methods and products) best suited to a person’s skin. This new diagnostic method pushes the boundaries of skin analysis, aging simulation reveals the future of your skin over a period of 15 to 10 years and shows the effects of external factors (UV, pollution, stress) on the natural aging process.
L’Oréal also offers: Meta Profiler with Giorgio Armani (Galeries Lafayette). This device is used to decode the skin using a high-precision diagnostic within 10 minutes. While photos of the skin are taken quickly, the corresponding survey takes more time. The tool measures the skin’s benchmarks and offers a skin care routine. The device provides images at ten times the magnification of the human eye.
Thanks to these new technological tools, the promise of “care for your skin and lifestyle” is full of truth.
