Why Your Skin Needs Probiotics

by Brittany Simons April 18, 2017

Sometimes, bacteria is beautiful. Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts naturally found in your body that help you digest food and fight off harmful bacteria. But sometimes you need to supplement your body with more probiotics to make sure the good bacteria outweighs the bad. You’re probably most familiar with probiotic-rich yogurt or supplements used to support your belly’s health. But probiotics aren’t just good for your belly – they can do wonders for your skin.

Probiotics can actually improve your complexion – and I’m talking about wonderful, take-notice improvements – by brightening, balancing and fortifying your skin’s natural barrier. Your skin has a microbiome, which is an elaborate ecosystem of bacteria, yeasts, and microorganisms which help maintain your skin’s health. This microbiome, akin to a “skin barrier,” is your first line of defense in terms of keeping the bad stuff out (like pollution and chemicals) and good stuff in (like moisture). Just imagine that your skin cells are bricks, held together by mortar; the natural renewal process of this brick wall slows with age. Probiotics aren’t just a quick spackling fix, but actually improves that mortar and positively influences the speed and quality of regrowth. Yes, bacteria really is beautiful.

That’s why our team dreamt up our new Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer. “In the initial innovation phase of this product, I got my inspiration from what was happening in the food industry. I was seeing a shift in consumer focus. They wanted to know more about the way in which their products and foods were made. I thought, if probiotics are so good for my gut, then I’m going to trust it! Let’s see what they can do for my skin!” says Vernetra Young, our Senior Manager of Product Marketing and Innovation.

Our Squalane + Probiotic Gel Moisturizer uses squalane, probiotic technology and key ingredients, like ginger extract, red seaweed and Swiss garden cress sprouts to hydrate, brighten and balance skin with results in three days. You read that right – you’ll actually notice results in three days. Our weightless gel moisturizer is clinically proven to improve your skin barrier and decrease redness by 23% in only three days. After twenty-eight days, you’ll notice decreased pore size, a 15%+ increase in skin radiance, and a smoother, more even complexion.
