Can Probiotics Help My Skin?

Your skin is your first line of defense against pretty much everything. The skin is the largest organ in the human body, and has its own complex ecosystem that keeps your skin looking healthy. At any given moment, the good bacteria (the natural flora that maintain healthy looking skin) are fighting an array of foes — environmental stressors like exposure, extreme temperatures, and other environmental irritants.

In other words, your skin is very busy. Maintaining healthy looking skin isn’t just about slapping on the most expensive face cream you can find. You also need to support the skin’s natural processes, including maintaining a sufficiently robust supply of healthy bacteria.

Enter Our Friend, The Probiotic

Yes, those same probiotics you may already be taking to help your internal organs do their best work, can also make a huge difference when applied externally on your skin!

So how does it work? Probiotics are beneficial to your skin in two different ways, but they really work best paired with an ingested probiotic (and hey, we know a great one you can try!). Here’s why:

  1. Topical probiotics help support the skin’s lipid protective barrier through helping retain moisture, and supporting the skin’s nattural renewal process.
  2. Digestive probiotics work with the gut to support immune health, support digestive balance, and help support healthy gut motility.

Together, these applications promote healthy looking skin from both inside and out. So if you want brighter, more deeply moisturized and healthy looking skin, use a probiotic skin support topical system.

And if you already have healthy looking skin, a combination of digestive and topical probiotics can help it stay that way. You’re supporting immune health as well.

Probiotics can also assist the unseen processes that support healthy looking skin, adding to its vitality. Because probiotics work with your skin’s natural renewal process, they don’t dry it or strip it of vital oils or nutrients. Probulin’s line of premium probiotic skin care products also includes ingredients like African Marula Oil, Shea Butter, and organic Aloe Vera.

In other words, if you want to have the healthy looking, beautiful skin, probiotics are the answer.
