Probiotics in Skincare
You've probably heard of probiotics and their benefits to your wellbeing. Wellness stores sell probiotics tablets to balance your gut but have you thought of products containing probiotics to your skincare routine? We'll tell you what probiotics are, what are the benefits and why you should consider adding them to your routine.
What are probiotics in skincare?
Just like the probiotics that are orally taken and have gut balancing properties, they can also have biome-balancing features when applied topically to the skin. Skincare products packed with probiotics promise to soothe inflammation, strengthen the skin's barrier and even diminish acne. When you use probiotics externally, they soothe the skin and help regulate the natural balance on it.
How do probiotics work?
Probiotics are live good bacteria and yeasts that hold vital benefits for the overall health of our digestive system. What probiotics do when used externally, is to create a naturally balanced environment on your skin. When your skin is healthy and happy, it appears glowing and spot-free.
Benefits of using probiotics in your skincare?
When your skin's barrier is working correctly, it can better regulate oil production, stay hydrated, and fight against free radicals. This results in healthy-looking complexion. Lots of different skin types benefit from adding probiotics to your skincare routine thanks to these features. Probiotics help sensitive skin to strengthen and re-build its barrier as they regulate skins inflammatory response. If you live in a polluted environment, like in a big city, probiotics help your skin fight the free radicals by preventing damage to collagen, elastin and healthy cells. Probiotics can also be found useful when treating acne. By calming and balancing the inflammatory response within the skin, probiotics can also help to soothe acne-prone skin. When taking care of your skin, we would recommend adding probiotics both into your diet and also use them externally on your skin to achieve the best results!
