What are Probiotics?
Probiotics are live bacteria that support the healthy bacteria in your body. A growing body of evidence suggests that using probiotics in oral supplements and topical form may help prevent and treat skin conditions, like eczema, acne, dry skin, and UV-induced skin damage. Studies suggests that some probiotics feed healthy bacteria to balance the skin’s pH and protect against free radical damage. Probiotics skincare may even change some of the ways skin grows, so it has a healthier appearance
Applying probiotics skincare can help address the balance of healthy bacteria that make up your skin microbiome. They help preserve the existing healthy bacteria on the skin and encourage the survival of probiotic microorganisms already in your skin microbiome.
What is the skin microbiome?
The skin microbiome is the billions of bacteria, fungi, and viruses that comprise the skin microbiota. Simply put, our skin is loaded with organisms like bacteria and yeast that are crucial for proper functioning of the skin itself.
Disruptions in the microbiome is associated with weakened skin barrier function leading to dryness, premature aging, and acne breakouts.
In short, probiotics skincare help restore the skin microbiome.
Ingredient Spotlight: Bifida Ferment Lysate
Bifida Ferment Lysate is a type of probiotic obtained by the fermentation of Bifida. While fermentation can cause the decomposition of ingredients, there is a delicate balance involved to determine how long these ingredients should be in the fermentation stage. And if you can get it right, fermentation naturally produces amino acids, vitamins, and various antioxidants – all of which are great for anti-aging benefits!
The process also results in smaller molecular structure, making it easier to be absorbed into the skin.
Bifida Ferment Lysate’s benefits are not just limited to strengthening the skin’s immune system, it also prevents damage from the exposure to UV rays, soothes inflammation, and helps lessen skin sensitivity to make skin less reactive.
