Probiotics are a huge buzzword in the skincare world right now, but are they actually worth the money?
We take you through the benefits of incorporating probiotics into your routine and show you an easy 2 step probiotic skincare routine you can try for yourself at home!
What are pre, post and probiotics in terms of skincare?
The use of pre, probiotics, and postbiotics in skincare is becoming increasingly popular, with research to support that the use of these can encourage healthy skin microbiome.
A healthy skin microbiome is incredibly important for maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin.
What Is Prebiotics?
Prebiotics are ingredients that promote the growth of good bacteria on the skin. They provide nourishment to the skin's microbiome and help to maintain a healthy balance of bacteria.
What is Probiotics?
Probiotics are live bacteria that are applied topically to the skin. They can help to restore the skin's natural balance of bacteria, which can improve skin health and appearance.
What Is Postbiotics?
Postbiotics are the metabolic by-products of probiotics. They can have a positive impact on the skin's microbiome and provide skin-loving benefits such as hydration and improved skin barrier function.
What's the difference between the prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics?
|Prebiotics feed the good bacteria||Probiotics are the good bacteria||Postbiotics are what the good bacteria creates, like vitamins and fatty acids!|
3 Benefits of Using Skincare with Pre, Post & Probiotics
1. You’ll improve your skin’s natural barrier
Probiotics, which are live microorganisms that are similar to the good bacteria found in the gut, can help to improve the skin's natural barrier by increasing the production of ceramides and other lipids that make up the barrier.
This can help to protect the skin from environmental stressors and prevent moisture loss, resulting in a healthier, more balanced complexion.
2. You’ll reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
Probiotics can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating collagen production.
Collagen is a protein that helps to keep the skin firm and elastic, and as we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles and sagging.
3. You’ll enjoy fewer breakouts
Probiotics can help to reduce the appearance of acne by balancing the skin's microbiome.
An imbalance of good and bad bacteria on the skin can lead to the overproduction of sebum, clogged pores, and inflammation, all of which can contribute to the development of acne.
By reintroducing good bacteria to the skin, probiotics can help to restore balance and reduce the likelihood of breakouts.
