Ready for the next big thing in skincare?
Probiotic skincare is all about optimising the powerful properties of ‘good’ bacteria in our skin. The benefits of this powerful regimen include reduced inflammation, anti-ageing qualities and more.
We’ve recently launched Flora+ Skin Probiotic Spray, so you can get started on your new skincare journey with the perfect probiotic solution.
The wonderful world of your skin’s microbiome
As the largest organ in the human body, your skin has an extremely important job: to act as a protective barrier against foreign organisms and toxic substances. For your skin to work at its very best, your skin’s microbiome – which, just like your gut microbiome, is teeming with bacteria – needs to be a balance of both good and ‘bad’ bacteria. So, it makes sense to protect it with a high-quality skincare regimen.
The microbiome in your skin regulates inflammation and serves as protection against pathogens. The bacteria itself plays an important role in promoting healthy skin by preventing infections from becoming more serious. But without balance, microbes can have a negative effect on your skin.
Microbe imbalance can be caused by a number of factors – from chronic inflammation and stress, to disruption in your skin’s pH levels or changes to your diet. And when the ecosystem becomes imbalanced, it can result in infections and serious skin conditions, such as acne, eczema and rosacea.
To avoid these problems from impacting your skin through balancing your skin’s microbiome, it’s important to look after your body – after all, it’s just as necessary to care about what you put on your body as what you put into it.
What is probiotic skincare?
We have already explored the power of improving gut health with probiotics. The same is also true for your skin. That’s because probiotics used in skincare products can optimise the powerful benefits of our skin’s ‘good’ bacteria.
Probiotic skincare can help to restore the delicate balance of your skin’s microbiome. By allowing good bacteria to flourish, probiotics can help promote better skin health while reducing the symptoms of unhealthy skin issues.
Acting as a protective shield against bad bacteria, probiotic skincare works to reduce the effects of inflammation and prevent the premature ageing of your skin, among a range of other benefits. In short, with a probiotic skincare regimen, you can put yourself on the best possible path towards happier, healthier and more glowing skin.
Top benefits of probiotic skincare
Probiotics really are the next big thing in skincare, and their benefits have even been investigated as part of scientific studies. Certain probiotic strains, such as Lactobacillus rhamnosus, have been shown to boost the skin’s production of ceramides – also known as lipids or fats. These trap moisture in the skin and stop the levels of acne-causing bacteria from becoming imbalanced. Other studies reveal that applying probiotic skincare products can help to manage dry skin and eczema. Further research has even found that probiotics feed your skin’s healthy bacteria to balance pH levels, thereby increasing protection against free-radical damage.
Many people with acne-prone skin have a broad variety of skincare products to help manage the condition. Using probiotics topically can help improve your skin’s microbiome and create a better environment where good bacteria are balanced out against zit-causing bacteria.
