Who would have thought that plastering live bacteria all over your skin is a good idea? Let alone of the fact that we have millions of these microscopic guys living quite comfortably on our bodies already…… So, this means we were born with them and we need them.
Doctors in the Health and Wellness industry have been praising probiotics for years, but what exactly are probiotics?
Probiotics, present in various types of food, are live, healthy bacteria or so-called friendly microorganisms that are responsible for restoring balance in our bodies by making sure that the bad bacteria are kept under control and prevented from causing illnesses. They are known to successfully fight gut inflammation, help bodies absorb certain types of nutrients, and strengthen the immune system.
Experts believe that a bad gut, results in unhealthy bacteria build-up which causes inflammation that leads to breakouts and flare-ups for those with skin conditions like rosacea, acne, or eczema.
The skincare industry has only recently embraced probiotics and how they can promote a healthy skin biome by influencing the types of bacteria that live on your skin.
