There has been a lot of hype surrounding the idea of probiotic skincare in recent years. Are you new to probiotic skincare? Read on as we explain everything you need to know about probiotics and why they are a worthy addition to one’s skincare routine. Here are the top reasons why probiotic skincare is worth trying.
What are Probiotics?
Probiotics contain beneficial live bacteria that can improve the body’s functions. These good bacteria help to eliminate bad bacteria, thus supporting the body by improving its immune system and reducing internal inflammation. When used on the skin, probiotics can bring about significant benefits in improving skin health. Studies have shown that using probiotics can help to prevent and treat various skin conditions, including sun damage, eczema, rosacea, acne, and dry skin.
You can apply probiotics directly on the skin or consume it orally. Topical application of probiotics is the most effective and direct way to support the skin’s microbiome. However, introducing probiotics into the digestive tract can also improve skin health. This is because gut health affects the whole body, including the skin. A healthy gut will reduce inflammation, flare-ups, and premature aging of the skin. In addition, using probiotics for skincare can increase skin production of lipids and ceramides, which boosts moisture retention in the skin.
Benefits of Using Probiotics in Skincare
There are several key benefits of using probiotics in skincare, including:
- Protecting the skin from environmental damage
- Reducing systemic inflammation
- Strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier
- Inhibiting production of bad bacteria that cause acne, such as Propionibacterium acnes
Side Effects of Using Probiotics
There are usually no significant side effects of using probiotics for skincare. However, those who are pregnant of breastfeeding should consult their doctor before starting on oral probiotics consumption.
Using Prebiotics and Postbiotics
It is a good idea to enhance the positive effects of probiotics with prebiotics and postbiotics. Prebiotics are nondigestible compounds that good bacteria feed on. They can be thought of as fertilizer for probiotics. Postbiotics are fermentation by-products of good bacteria and can improve the skin’s absorption of water, electrolyte, and sodium.
