Embrace World Microbiome Day with Sásta Skin Health: nourish your microbiome!


Sásta Skin Health are thrilled to be celebrating World Microbiome Day on June 27th. We are made of 99% microorganisms, so it's quite right they have a day to celebrate them and everything that they do in unity that influences our health and in turn our entire planet.

Your microbiome lives in harmony with you, take care of it and it will take care of you!

In honour of World Microbiome Day, the Sásta Skin Health team and founder Michelle McDonald have made it their mission to educate how lifestyle and diet shapes your body's microbiome and how we can treat and support our microbes daily using a simplistic full body approach.

Simplistic, realistic and sustainable actions to achieve a happy, healthy microbiome lie at the heart of Sásta Skin Health and this is the approach they lead with to ensure optimal microbial health that can be achieved by anyone.

World Microbiome Day was established by APC Microbiome Ireland in 2018, a world-leading Science Foundation Ireland research centre focused on understanding the gastrointestinal bacterial community and harnessing the power of the microbiome for health and wellbeing.

This year's theme to celebrate World Microbiome Day is “Feed Your Microbes”. Michelle Mc Donald, founder of Sásta Skin Health is here to educate you on the importance of feeding our microbiome with simple, practical daily steps and how this will in turn have a positive impact on your overall health.

What exactly are microbes?

Our microbiome is an integral part of our overall health and wellbeing. It is important we feed and support our skin microbiome daily. Skin microbiome is an ecosystem that controls our skin and is responsible for everything including how well products are absorbed into our skin.

Our bodies are made of trillions of microbes which consist of bacteria, fungi and viruses. “our microscopic soldiers.” Their goal is to protect you, aid absorption of nutrients and influence your hormones. At Sásta, they are all about keeping these microbes healthy for our overall well being!

What simple steps can you take to nourish & feed your body's microbiome daily?


Did you know your skin is your body’s largest organ and the first line of defence against the outside world? There is no such thing as perfect skin – the goal should always be healthy skin! Your skin is packed with microorganisms like bacteria & fungi that are invisible to the naked eye. These in turn are vital to our overall general health. This physical layer protects us from the outside world fighting infection, controlling inflammation & alerts your immune system to outside dangers such as harmful bacteria & viruses.

The journey to healthy skin starts from within, a well balanced diet rich in Omega-3’s, a rainbow of daily fruits and vegetables, high fibre prebiotic foods and probiotic foods will aid to nourish your skin inside and out. This will help combat inflammation and aid to enhance your skin's complexion.

Using Sásta’s Daily Microbiome Serum Booster is an amazing step forward to help feed and support your skin's microbiome, formulated with prebiotics and postbiotics to repair and protect your skin from the outside in.

With this daily supplement serum for your skin you can say goodbye to inflammation, sensitivity, skin dehydration, irregular pigmentation, and premature ageing.


To achieve that sought after healthy glow, it is essential that we feed our microbiome with a holistic approach. “Daylight and fresh air are great for your microbes,” says Michelle Mc Donald, founder of Sásta Skin Health. “Clear your mind and de-stress with a brisk walk, which not only improves digestive health but also nourishes your skin's microbiome.”


Your skin can be significantly influenced by your mood. When your body is under stress, your body releases excess cortisol which in turn disrupts our microbial balance.

It is vital we opt for simple actions and daily solutions that aim to keep our stress-levels low such as minimising our screen time and regulating our internal body clock with restful sleep. Journaling is also a powerful tool to migrate stress and detox your mind! Not only is it a safe place to release your thoughts, it can be as comforting as a deep breath.

Integrating these simple, realistic daily solutions will ensure you have one healthy, happy, nourished and glowing skin biome! It all starts with a simple first step.
