Frequently Asked Questions about Probiotics products
What are probiotics and how do they work?
In general, probiotics is the name given to microorganisms that are great for human health. The friendly live bacteria and yeasts are mostly commonly known for aiding the digestive system and balancing your gut.
In skin care, however, probiotics balance your skin’s microbiome (the microorganisms found in a particular part of the body) and leave you with a healthy, radiant complexion.
How do probiotics benefit the skin?
From strengthening the skin’s surface against environmental aggressors to enhancing its ability to remain hydrated, probiotics are bursting with skin benefits. Their list of talents includes preventing factors that trigger irritation, reducing dryness and restoring a healthy pH balance to the skin’s surface.
What is the difference between probiotics and prebiotics?
Prebiotics are non-digestible fibres that support and stimulate the growth of healthy bacteria in the gut. Probiotics, on the other hand, contain live organisms and different strains of bacteria, which provide numerous health and beauty benefits.
Which probiotic ingredients are best for your skin?
There isn’t one singular probiotic that works best as most are packed with equal benefits. However, look to seek out topical skin care products, especially creams, that utilise a blend of probiotics, prebiotics and lysate ingredients.
As for the ingredients label, the likes of lactobacillus, bifidobacterium, vitreoscilla, xylitol and fructooligosaccharides are indicators that you’re on the right probiotic path.
Which probiotic is good for acne?
Lactobacillus Acidophilus, or L. Acidophilus is the probiotic strain you’ll want to snap up after a bad breakout. Working in the same way as antibiotics, probiotics protect your skin form flare-ups and inflammation from the offset.
