Probiotics: Your skincare friend with benefits
Posted On Jul 14, 2015
We know the source of gorgeous skin is a healthy inside. Flipping through health/beauty magazines, you have undoubtedly noticed the surge in probiotic popularity over the last couple of years. Most of these articles and ad campaigns target how these friendly bacteria rectify our insides and keep our immune system in tip-top shape, but there hasn’t been as much light shed on how probiotics can benefit us when applied topically. Until mybody advanced probiotic skincare hit the market.
Mybody lovingly refers to probiotics as our skincare “friend with benefits” because they practically address every problematic skin condition that exists from acne to premature aging.
It’s important to note that the science behind taking probiotics orally and applying them topically is a bit different from one another – but both are very beneficial when it comes to skincare. The gut and the skin are very closely connected, so it’s important that we eat a diet that includes probiotic-rich foods (greek yogurt, kefir, kombucha, etc.) to keep the good bacteria in our tummies in check. And even though starting from the inside out is a great line of attack to achieve that youthful glow you’re aiming for, research shows that topical application of friendly bacteria can yield results that are just as remarkable.
Are we suggesting that you slather your faces your faces in greek yogurt or dunk your head in kombucha? Not quite…
Luckily, mybody has mastered the science behind infusing our skincare products with probiotics that bypass old technologies associated with injury, chronic inflammation and damaged skin. Instead of breaking down the skin, causing excessive stress and weakening cellular communication, mybody’s Probiotic Bioactives boost the skin’s natural repair response, heighten the skin’s own natural immune system and trigger the production of new, healthy collagen.
Whether you’re looking to address acne-prone skin, rosacea, premature aging, hypersensitivity – or practically any other skincare woe – switching over to a probiotic regimen could be your ticket to clear, healthy and radiant skin.
Seeing spots? If you suffer from acne, a topical probiotic regimen may be a good solution for you. Studies of topical probiotics for acne have shown they may help reduce the number of active lesions on the skin and can also create a protective barrier preventing inflammation.
Feeling a little too sensitive? Making a switch to a probiotic skincare regimen may be a great idea for you since there is ample evidence that topical probiotics can greatly decrease skin sensitivity, redness, irritation, inflammation, itchiness and even rosacea.
Do you wish your skin had a little more oomph? Good news. Adding these friendly little guys to your skincare routine has been proven to rebuild collagen, the protein that is responsible for your skin’s texture and plump appearance. Also, high numbers of good bacteria keep the skin hydrated and aid in reducing sun damage which improves the appearance of dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles.
