AD | Sponsored Feature In Partnership With Andrex Skin Kind
We all know that little changes can build up to make a big difference, and that good habits can lead to a much healthier body and mind. Looking after our complexion is second nature, moisturising our limbs is the norm and even paying more attention to the delicate skin under our arms has become more of a priority in recent years. But what about your intimate areas? Us Brits are terrible when it comes to being educated on, looking after and discussing our more intimate body parts, but there’s no shame in wanting to take care of yourself from top to toe – or making small changes that will help your body perform at its most optimum.
I’ve spoken a lot about probiotics and prebiotics in the past, but essentially there are a huge array of microorganisms living within and on the surface of our bodies that help keep it at its optimum health. You may be familiar with the ‘friendly’ bacteria in your gut already, but scientists have also discovered the same thing exists on the surface of (and within) our skin. Each of us has our own distinctive combination of these organisms, known as our microbiome, which can help protect against infection and irritation by crowding out overgrowth of the bacteria we don’t want.
An imbalanced microbiome is now associated with many skin conditions (including psoriasis, eczema, contact dermatitis, acne, rosacea and accelerated skin aging,) and a balanced microbiome therefore aids in healing, limits environmental damage and keeps the skin hydrated; it makes sense to look after it! A prebiotic is a type of ‘food’ that helps to feed the friendly bacteria and encourage the development beneficial bacteria in your body, and this can be added to your diet or regime. You can choose to take a supplement, switch up your skincare, introduce a probiotic mist or look out for ingredients that help support a healthy microbiome – but now there’s a revolutionary new way to look after your intimate health and delicate skin every time you pop to the loo.
Andrex Skin Kind is a skin-loving toilet tissue; it’s the first toilet tissue in the UK to contain a prebiotic lotion and has been specially designed to help build and maintain your skin’s natural balance. Recognised by The British Skin Foundation, Andrex Skin Kind has been dermatologically tested and is suitable for even the most sensitive of skin – as they believe the best way to keep your body healthy is to prevent a problem before it starts. Enriched with a unique SoftSoothe prebiotic lotion and featuring their CleanRipple texture, Andrex Skin Kind delivers a superior feeling whilst caring for your skin.
I’ve always been a bit fussy when it comes to choosing my loo roll (especially as someone who spends half her life needing a wee,) but with Andrex Skin Kind I’ve found a new bathroom staple that makes me feel good while looking after my most intimate skin. It’s one of those small changes that could make a big difference in the long term, without you even knowing, and that’s something I’m totally on board with. It also smells amazing!
