You probablyÂ know thatÂ oralÂ probiotics (found in supplements and foods like plain unflavored yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut, miso, pickles, and kimchi) can help rebalance your gut, reduce inflammation throughout your body, and boost your immune system, but did you also know that probiotics are beneficial for the skin when applied topically? Just like your gut,Â there’sÂ good and bad bacteria present on your skin and when the ratio isÂ out-of-whack, skin can act up in the form of acne, rosacea, eczema, and other skin conditions.
Topical probiotic skincare is the means to clearer, less sensitive, younger looking skin. It helpsÂ rebalance everything out andÂ protect, revitalize, and nourish. Though a weekly facial mask with probiotic rich plain yogurt can be helpful, there are also some great skincare products that are rich in probiotics.
TULAÂ ($25-$75), which means ‘balance’ in Sanskrit, isÂ specially formulated with beneficial probiotics and nutrients to nourish, brighten, and smooth the skin while reducing fine lines. First-time users might want to sampleÂ TULA Probiotic Skincare Discovery Collection ($49), containing travel size samples of the Purifying Face Cleanser, Illuminating Face Serum, Hydrating Day and Night Cream, and Revitalizing Eye Cream.
Nude Skincare ($28-$88) is rich in omegas, probiotics, hyaluronic acid, and vitamins to boostÂ skinâ€™s moisture barrier, protect it from aging and stress, and help it restore its natural balance. You’ll like the Radiant Day Moisturizer ($52) for silky smooth, younger looking skin.
Clinique Redness Solutions Daily Relief Cream with Probiotic TechnologyÂ ($47), an oil-free moisturizer that calms instantly and helps prevent future rosacea flare-ups.
