Turns Out, the Secret to Healthy, Radiant Skin is. . . Bacteria?
Discover one of the most surprising secrets to keeping your skin healthy, radiant and clear—the body’s bacterial microbiome.

Written by a skin microbiome expert, Good Bacteria for Healthy Skin is a friendly, comprehensive, and science-backed exploration of what your skin microbiome is, what it does, and how you can nourish it using simple over the-counter products, natural treatments and, crucially, a skin-friendly diet.
Author Paula Simpson teaches readers how lifestyle affects the skin microbiome, how microbiome imbalances impact skin conditions, and the benefits of probiotics and prebiotics. Simpson’s expertise is perfect for a massive audience that is looking to discover professional secrets and science behind achieving and maintaining perfect skin.
Author Paula Simpson shares how to achieve healthy skin through:
- Choosing the best probiotics for clearer skin
- Avoiding foods that disrupt your skin’s microbial balance

“We are currently living through an exciting new scientific era that focuses on the microbiome. While voluminous research has been done on the gut microbiome, Paula Simpson has pulled back the curtains to reveal the secret life of our skin microbiome. In her book Paula reveals many astonishing facts about the microbial terrain of our body’s largest organ and how it affects everything from acne, hydration, skin barrier function, immune function and more. The book also highlights the crosstalk between the gut microbiome and the skin microbiome- truly our bodies are holistic and we can no longer think about certain parts as separate. Paula recommends an integrative approach to keeping our skin biome healthy and provides the steps and delicious and healthy recipes necessary to guide us along the way. I highly recommend this ground breaking book if you are interested in learning in depth about your skin’s biome and having the healthiest skin of your life!”

“Microbiome, probiotics and prebiotics seem to be pretty buzzy words these days. Finally an easy to read book that breaks it all down! Paula’s book is written so engagingly that you don’t need an advanced degree in biochemistry to enjoy it. Finally, I understand the difference between pre-biotics and pro-biotics and why each is so important to healthy, glowing skin. I’ve long been a fan of the big-picture when it comes to skin health and while microbiome, pro and pre-biotics may be having a real moment, I think that this isn’t a trend. It’s just good information that’s easy to implement. I especially enjoyed the chapters on nutrition because I’m also a firm believer that a healthy gut = healthy skin. Bonus: skin-friendly and microbiome-friendly recipes included!”

This book is a terrific guide to understanding what works.”
