Benefits of Probiotics in Skincare

Benefits of Probiotics in Skincare

You’ve probably heard of probiotics. They’re those friendly bacteria that act in the gut to improve your microbiome, right? 

You may not know, however, that probiotics play a serious role in the health of your skin too. Without the right balance in the microbiome, skin issues are likely to occur. That’s why no matter what you might be doing, your skin isn’t improving. 

Balancing your 'biome

Every area of our bodies has billions of microbiome – all made up of bacteria, fungi, and viruses (most of which are healthy). 

Your skin is your largest organ and the microbiome in your skin helps in a range of processes. It does things like act as a barrier for unwanted nasties. It also helps reduce inflammation. 

Just like in the gut, when the skin’s microbiome isn’t in a healthy balance, a range of skin issues can occur. 

When the microbiome isn’t balanced, you can expect conditions like eczema, rosacea, and sensitivity. Studies have found that a lack of diversity in some microbiome can cause acne. 

Probiotics are a game changer

If you have skin concerns, you might need to blame it on the 'biome. 

Just like in your gut, probiotics can help restore the skin’s microbiome to a healthy balance.  Prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics play a critical role in balancing the microbiome – all to help rejuvenate the skin. 

Scientific studies have found that probiotics can prevent and treat a range of skin diseases including acne, eczema, atopic dermatitis, inflammation, skin sensitivity, and sun damage.

So what does that mean for you? Probiotics are essential in skincare because they can improve the skins barrier protection, preventing further sensitisation.
