❤ What Exactly Are Probiotics? ❤
Probiotics are live bacteria (the good kind) and yeasts that hold key benefits for the overall health of our digestive system. Found in yogurt and supplements, they have the ability to block pathogens and balance bacteria in the gut to fight off bloating, stomach cramps and other issues. Although people often think of bacteria and other microorganisms as harmful “germs,” many are actually helpful. Some bacteria help digest food, destroy disease-causing cells or produce vitamins. Many of the microorganisms in probiotic products are the same as or similar to microorganisms that naturally live in our bodies.
❤ How Do Probiotics Work In Skincare? ❤
Similar to how probiotics treat and prevent problems in the stomach, topical versions are known for their calming effects on the skin by harnessing a surge of good bacteria to help cells flourish. When your skin barrier is happy, it can regulate oil production, stay hydrated, and fend off free radicals.
❤ The probiotic benefits for each skin type ❤
1.For sensitive skin Probiotics have the rather clever ability to rebuild and strengthen the skin's barrier. Sensitive skin may take a while to repair itself after damage, but incorporating probiotics into your skincare regime helps speed up the process. Probiotics help to regulate the skin’s natural immune (or inflammatory) response, meaning that equilibrium is maintained and skin becomes less reactive. Essentially, they help to build skin resilience and natural immunity. So if stronger,
more balanced skin is your aim, it may well be worth investing in a probiotic-powered skincare routine.
2.For polluted skin Free radicals such as pollution have the ability to accelerate ageing and to zap the skin of healthy radiance, but when applied topically, probiotics can boost the skin's natural defense against these aggressors. Probiotics can ensure your skin is ready to fight the elements on a daily basis by activating the skin's natural defense system and restoring equilibrium. Simply speaking, a dose of topical probiotics can calm the immune response that pollution and stress stimulate, preventing damage to collagen, elastin and healthy cells. Think of them as a shield against said environmental aggressors and whatever else we fling at our skin daily.
3.For acne skin Studies have found products containing lactobacillus(a type of bacteria usually found in yogurt) are effecive in treating acne. Probiotic skincare is a promising way to treat acne-prone skin by calming and balancing the inflammatory response within the skin, probiotics can also help to soothe acne-prone skin from within.
