You'll find them in your yogurt, supplements, and now your skincare, too. But waht are probiotics?
Probiotics are good-for-you bacteria that work to improve your health, inside and out. They have a direct effect at the site of application by enhancing the skin’s natural defense barriers.
Probiotics can boost resident bacteria to produce antimicrobial peptides that benefit the skin’s natural immune response and help eliminate harmful organisms. They are protein-, vitamin- and mineral-rich elements that help protect against harmful bacteria and negative environmental irritants.
Probiotics balance your skin by strengthening your skin barrier and microbiome, the community of bacteria that serves as your skin’s first line of defense against air pollution, allergens, toxins, and other environmental stressors.
A strong and balanced microbiome is essential for a radiant, supple, and healthy complexion – at any age.
Applying probiotics to your skin can stimulate the production of defense cells that restore your skin's natural balance and stabilize its immune system.
Not only does this help your skin look healthy, young, and clear, but it also decreases sensitivity, redness and inflammation.
