Have You Discovered The Benefits Of Probiotic Skin Care?
Posted by Rachael Funnell in Skin Care
Probiotics, or “good bacteria”, are something you would usually associate with morning yoghurts and regular bowel movements. With that preconception it can be hard to see probiotics as a luxurious branch of beauty products, but having seen great success within brands such as Aurelia and Clinique it could be time to stop eating that yoghurt and start using it as a staple part of your skin care routine.
So why introduce “good bacteria” into skin care anyway? What’s the benefit? The skin saving bacteria involved is called Bifida which stabilises the skin’s natural defence system by helping to regain and maintain the natural balance of bacteria and pH on the surface of the skin. Probiotics aid with digestion by ensuring the gut is populated with the right kind of bacteria which fights off the bad bacteria, which is exactly the same way it works for the skin. By maintaining a healthy and natural balance of helpful bacteria the skin is better able to fight off bacterial infections such as acne. Who knew bugs could be so handy?
Claire Vero, founder of Aurelia cosmetics, discovered the benefits of probiotics in skin care when she observed the positive effects they had on clients will longterm skin conditions in reducing inflammation and redness. Whether you suffer from a skin condition or not, the benefits of maintaining the natural balance of the skin are undeniably positive, so if you’d like to inject some live cultures into your skin care routine, here are a few of our favourite probiotic products to give your skin a natural boost.
This luxurious bio-organic cleanser contains a high concentration of probiotics and peptides which support the skin’s natural defence system. Containing plant and flower extract this creamy formula soothes dehydrated skin whilst also promoting a dewy and radiant finish. With 100% pure botanicals, including Baobab, Kigelia Africana and Hibiscus this wonder-product revitalises the skin and fights oxidative stress. A far throw from the somewhat unappealing yoghurts you might associate with probiotics, this intelligent cleanser will leave your skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
This extra-gentle, oil-free formula instantly comforts red and irritated skin. The probiotic technology works to reduce the appearance of visible redness and helps to prevent future flare-ups. By reducing signs of blotchiness on the skin, this relieving cream will give you a radiant, even tone whilst also gently moisturising the skin and reducing the appearance of broken capillaries. With its cooling texture and dramatic results, we think this is a beauty must have for those with persistently red skin.
