Everyone experiences skin damage at some point in their lives, whether it be from too much sun exposure, an underlying health issue, or even just natural aging.

We can all relate to the frustration and exhaustion felt when starting such an uphill battle. But fear not; there are many simple treatments available to aid and assist in reversing this damage. 

The struggle against skin damage is one we must fight repeatedly throughout our lifetime. Pollution, sun, and stress impose a  harm to our skin that can make recovery a daunting task if left untreated for longer periods of time.

When talking with dermatologists about the most prevalent effects, three main issues come up – sun spots, sunburns, and dry skin. Of these, sun spots genuinely give pop out as the number one worry.

But don’t panic – the truth is there are some easy ways to reverse and restore your skin’s state.

It’s never too late to regain control over the look of your complexion and improve your skin’s overall health! In this blog post, we’ll cover great options for restoring radiance and promoting healthy, smooth complexion. 

Prevention is Key

The first step in reversing skin damage is to practice prevention. Sun exposure is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to skin damage, so make sure you’re wearing sunscreen whenever you go outside – even on cloudy days! You should also wear protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses when spending extended periods of time in the sun.

And if you’re going to be swimming or enjoying other water activities, make sure you’re wearing waterproof sunscreen that won’t wash off.

It’s also important to cleanse your skin regularly with a gentle cleanser that won’t strip away its natural oils. This will help remove dirt, oil, makeup residue, and other impurities that can lead to clogged pores and breakouts.

Be sure to use lukewarm water rather than hot water when washing your face—hot water can dry out the skin and strip away its natural moisture barrier.

Moisturizing is one of the essentials for good skin care. Some say it’s the key to prevent wrinkles and restore elasticity in your skin. But not just something off store aisles, you need to select your moisturizer with care to get maximum benefits.

Look out for key ingredients such as glycerin, hyaluronic acid, shea butter, vitamin E oil, or green tea extract. They are all barometers of kindness to give damaged cells and much needed nutrition.

And that’s not even the best part; applying moisturizer can also provide extra protection against those harmful UV rays that speed up premature aging. So you waste no more time, get a good everyday moisturizer and start healing!

Repair & Rejuvenate

Now that you’ve locked down a skincare routine tailored to prevention, you can get to work on repairing any existing damage.

To do this, many people seek out special products purposely made for anti-aging, or reversing sun damage like retinol creams and vitamin C serums. They work by stimulating collagen production which in turn helps reduce wrinkles and faint lines while increasing the elasticity in your complexion.

Not only that-guidance gurus also recommend having a moisturizer with SPF that your slather on daily. It not only acts as a shield against possible upcoming sun damage but usually keeps your epidermis nicely hydrated and nourished too!

Not getting any relief from those over-the-counter treatments? No worries! There are plenty of professional treatments out there to help target specific areas like dark spots or wrinkles.

Laser resurfacing is great for acne scars, microdermabrasion can do some deep exfoliation, topical creams are amazing for calming down inflammation and lightening dark spots, you can get botox injections to relax the muscles and even some fillers if you want to add volume!

Whatever treatment you decide on, consulting with a dermatologist is must; they’ll be able to let you know which treatments might be safe and useful for your skin type so that you get the most benefit without any adverse effects. 

Exfoliating your skin is one of the easiest and most effective ways to reverse and repair the damage that has been done. It removes dead cells from the surface area of your skin, clearing away any extra oils that could be causing breakouts or clogged pores.

But if you’re feeling bold, don’t hesitate to ask for a chemical peel from a dermatologist – which does a more intensive job in removing those dead cells from the surface and promote cell turnover for brighter and glowing complexion!

If you have sensitive skin it might not be the best option.

Finally, incorporating antioxidant products into a regular skincare routine provides that extra protection for youthful, radiant skin.

Antioxidants are stimulators for collagen production helping to reduce wrinkles overtime – turning those harbingers of aging into barely visible anomalies!

Of course, just as important is spending time incorporating relaxation exercises into a busy day and making sure to get adequate sleep each night!



It’s never too late to work towards repairing and reversing the signs of aging or other types of skin damage you might be struggling with. Developing – and sticking to – the right skin care routine is key, as well. Incorporate targeted treatments, like over-the-counter creams and serums, chemical peels, or even laser treatments for a boost if needed!

With a healthy, dedicated skin care regimen plus additional specialist treatments, you can bring life back to your complexion in no time and have it restoring its youthful glow in no time at all!

Of course seeking consultation from the right professional experienced in skincare help alleviate let you feel unconcerned while finding out the customized solution that best fits your functions needs with qualitative treatment lead to optimal results from proven money saving methods!

But don’t forget: prevention is key—so be sure to practice safe skincare habits such as sunscreen every day regardless of weather, protection against harsh natural environment conditions coupled with moisturiser and gentle cleanser.

“As far as I can remember I have always struggled with sensitive skin. The issues culminated in my mid-twenties when I started having rosacea flares and redness. My personal quest for effective, safe solutions took a professional turn, and I was given the opportunity to apply my (Pharma) background in developing a new skin friendly product line. My goal was to create something new, a clinically proven sustainable skincare brand. This science backed probiotic skincare derived technology is a product of years of research and innovation in personal care products. Metabiotics contain naturally produced hyaluronic acid, lactic acid, SMase, lipoteichoic acid, over 40 peptides and enzymes. All assigned with specific tasks for activating the skins native repair mechanisms.”

Following the principles of Clean Beauty, we have joined the dedicated stream of safe, non-toxic beauty enthusiasts.

Our products contain carefully selected hypoallergenic ingredients suitable for sensitive and reactive skin.

We’re committed to formulating with natural, organically-derived, and skin-friendly synthetics while excluding popular “good feeling” and potentially harmful compounds to provide the best skincare solutions.

“It is easy to get hooked on conventional products, with inviting perfumes and the instantly pleasant skin feeling. The sooner you understand that those sensations are short-lived the better! Choose Clean Beauty and allow the science backed ingredients time to work wonders on your skin.”

Cinically proven

Our products’ superiority has been proven in a controlled study on 50 volunteers where it was shown that four-week product use leads to a significant increase in skin moisture levels (39%), increased skin elasticity (50%), and a decrease in the appearance of wrinkles (23%).

Other beneficial effects include decrease in skin sensitivity, increase in skin cleanliness, evenness of the skin tone, decrease in acne formation.

This study serves as proof of the skin’s gradual return of its protective layer, integrity, and balance. All study results have been published in a peer reviewed journal as well as the full study report.

“Putting all science aside, we are most proud of our users’ testimonials. All tested volunteers claimed visible and tangible improvement in skin feel and appearance.”


The greatest breakthrough discovery we stumbled upon is that skincare and cosmetics should not be sensational.

Personal care should be comprehensive, accessible, and efficient, just as all solutions that come from nature are.

We are often faced with labels such as anti aging skin care, organic skin care, natural skincare products, which lack the necessary explanation… What do these phrases actually mean?

“Grown tired of all the misleading, incomprehensive, irrelevant information used in the beauty industry we decided to stick to a no-nonsense approach. It is what it is, and skin care is not magic! It requires commitment, patience and understanding your skins’ needs.”


We are dedicated to neutralizing our negative impact on the environment as much as possible and have joined the stream of sustainable skincare brands. We’re taking you on for the ride (we’ve even packed the goodies)!

To help minimize our carbon footprint, for every product order a tree will be planted thanks to our amazing planters at One Tree Planted. It’s estimated that a mature tree nullifies around 20lbs of CO2 a year.

We’re doing our best to reuse, reduce and recycle. Wishing to inspire a circular economy we have partnered up, to create a customized recycling program. Collect three empty plastic packages to receive your Anbiome Recycling Envelope and follow the instructions on how to take part in our recycling mission. 

Your good deed shall be rewarded. For every three products recycled you receive one product gift!


Today’s trends in skincare require the use of synthetic active ingredients which interact with the skin. Our approach is to distinguish natural alternatives, which mimic the skins native repair mechanism and are more efficient and ecologically sound.

Translating solutions from nature into industrial settings is hardly an easy task, but it’s one we enjoy undertaking.

We have screened 500+ different wild probiotic strains from the nature, to find the most powerful ones.

Special fermentation process was developed to harvest powerful molecules (HA, LTA, SMase, LA and 40 peptides).

Result is the composition of native signal components and molecules that keep the skin balanced, healthy and protected.
