How probiotics are finding their way into your skincare products!

How probiotics are finding their way into your skincare products!
  • favoris

You’ve probably heard all about the benefits probiotics can bring to your digestive system - but what about probiotic skincare? We take a closer look at the on-trend skin innovation that the experts can’t stop talking about.

What is probiotic skincare?


We’re glad you asked! Earmarked as one of 2017’s leading beauty trends, dermatologists and beauty experts the world over are singing the praises of probiotic-infused skincare - and there might be something to it. Countless major skincare brands are beginning to wake up to the possible benefits of probiotic ingredients when it comes to soothing and protecting skin… so it’s time for the rest of us to start paying attention.

It’s a safe bet that most of us are only familiar with probiotics’ health benefits in the form of a daily supplement, but we could be missing a trick. With skin being the largest organ in the human body, some dermatologists are arguing that the beneficial effects probiotics have been proven to have on our digestive systems can also help improve our skin. Certain experts are beginning to claim that topical application of probiotics - i.e. through regular or targeted skincare - can not only trigger skin’s inbuilt moisturizing abilities[1], but also improve the quality and texture of your complexion.

Probiotic ingredients: where to find them


Apart from adding probiotics to your diet, either as food or via supplements, topical application of naturally occurring probiotics may have positive effects on the skin. Beauty bloggers have long touted the skin-calming benefits of certain ingredients, such as natural yoghurt, with many cultured dairy products (generally high in probiotics) boasting natural exfoliant properties.[1] On the more technical end of the spectrum, star skincare ingredients to watch out for include bifidus, derived from probiotics, that can help counter dryness, reinforce skin’s barrier function and decrease skin sensitivity. Research by L’Oréal indicates that certain probiotics, including bifidobacterium longum, have a positive impact on skin sensitivity, as well as improving skin’s ability to maintain its barrier functions.[2]
