Topical probiotics for skin

Many people have discovered the benefits of including probiotics in their diets, but applying probiotics topically to the skin can target and prevent skin concerns like aging, acne, rosacea and more. Keep reading to learn why you need topical probiotics.

 

3 Reasons you need topical probiotics

 

1) Topical probiotics can protect skin

In people who have acne and rosacea, bacteria and microorganisms on the skin are attacked by the body’s immune system. This causes inflammation, redness, pimples, bumps, etc. When applied topically, probiotics skin care sits on the skin’s surface and creates “bacterial interference” (1). This “shield” helps protect the skin and interferes with the bacteria and microorganisms’ ability to provoke an immune reaction.  Probiotics for acne and rosacea can greatly reduce those skin concerns.

 

2) Topical probiotics for skin can kill bacteria

Antibiotics are often used in the treatment of acne and rosacea, but topical probiotics for skin can work in a similar fashion. Certain probiotics have antimicrobial properties, which means they can kill the bad bacteria and help foster good bacteria (2).

 

3) Probiotics can soothe skin

When certain probiotics are topically applied, they have the ability to calm the skin on a cellular level (3).

“Probiotics can help reduce inflammation, improve texture, build collagen and give that all over glow to the skin.” –Carol Byrne, licensed esthetician

In addition to reducing acne and rosacea, topical probiotics can help soothe eczema (4) and even help with anti-aging efforts due to the collagen production.
