How probiotics can make you prettier
You probably already know that eating or taking probiotics can improve your skin from the inside out. But according to new research, you can reap the anti-aging benefits of probiotics by applying them topically, too. We have good and bad bacteria on our skin, like we do in our gut. If the balance is damaged, it can result in acne or rosacea. And the right bacteria may also keep skin young. A study found that probiotics can stimulate skin’s protective mechanism from the inside, and this may also happen with external application. Here are 5 ways of how beauty products with probiotics can make your skin look younger and prettier.
1. Smooth dry skin
Use a night cream with probiotics – during 8 hours of sleep the active cultures will do their work. The probiotic technology helps your skin retain its moisture, while natural butters feed your skin with restorative antioxidants that fight fine lines and wrinkles.
2. Minimize redness or rosacea
Facial redness is caused by inflammation, which makes your blood vessels visible at the skin’s surface. Look for products with active probiotic Lactobacillus and lots of natural extracts, which calm, soothe, and strengthen the skin’s barrier to lessen redness over time.
3. Fix fine lines and dullness
The active probiotics in beauty products (masks, for example) stimulate your skin to produce its own anti-aging ingredients – including collagen, hyaluronic acid, and antioxidants, which help combat fine lines.
4. Calm stressed-out skin
The probiotics in beauty products boost your skin’s natural defenses against environmental damage. Look for such ingredients as cucumber, pinus bark, and Frangipani extracts to calm down seriously stressed skin.
5. Perk up a tired face
You want to look for a daily moisturizer formulated with a yeast complex that activates and energizes your cells so your skin can stay better hydrated, fight off free radicals and environmental damage, and renew itself for younger-looking skin faster.
