Transform your skin with probiotic-infused beauty products

The “friendly” bacteria that are good for your gut, can also ease skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, and eczema. A healthy balance of bacteria in your digestive tract has an anti-inflammatory effect on your entire body—including your skin. And since your skin is actually its own complex microbiome, just like your gut, it benefits from topically applied probiotics. Here are 4 ways these microbes can deliver miracles when it comes to beautiful skin.

Fight Bacteria on Your Skin

Antimicrobial peptides in probiotics that are applied topically act like natural antibiotics to kill off harmful germs. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, topical probiotics can cause “bacterial interference” by obstructing bacteria and parasites that can cause inflammation, redness, or bumps. Researchers continue to determine which of the many probiotics have the strongest antimicrobial properties. 

Reduce Signs of Aging on Your Skin

They can shield against pollution and UV rays and help hydrate skin, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin’s elasticity. 

Boost Skin’s Radiance from the Inside Out 

Your skin is your body’s largest organ, so it’s best to be proactive and double up on probiotics by combining topical products with supplements. Make them part of your diet and your skin care. You can also improve the balance of bacteria in your gut by eating probiotics in yogurt, kefir, tempeh, miso, kombucha, kimchi, and sauerkraut (in addition to taking probiotic supplements).
