A recent hot topic in the world of beauty and skincare has been the use of probiotics to improve the appearance of your skin, particularly for those prone to acne.
Probiotics contribute to eliminating toxins and free radicals in the body and research has shown that they perform a role in skin heath, such as improving atopic dermatitis, promoting the healing of scars and burns, rejuvenating the skin and strengthening the skin’s immunity. For acne sufferers who may have unhealthy guts, supplementing with probiotics, particularly lactobacillus acidophilus and the yeast saccharomyces cerevisiae, will often improve their acne.
Eczema and psoriasis have been proven to be benefited by probiotics. Giving probiotics to infants has been proven to lessen the likelihood of infants developing eczema. Probiotics have also been shown to improve eczema symptoms in patients suffering from the condition. Psoriasis, which is linked to inflammation, has also been shown to improve with oral probiotics.
Good gut bacteria strengthens the human immune system. Having a strong immune system benefits all organs of the body, including the skin. Research has shown that probiotics can benefit skin not only through the digestive tract, but also when given in tropical applications such as creams or lotion.
Probiotics have been shown to strengthen the skin’s barrier and protect against unfriendly bacteria, pollution and free radicals, all of which can accelerate ageing. Topical probiotics containing streptococcus thermophiles were found to increase moisture in the skin of ageing women.
