How probiotic beauty products work

Probiotics have been in สิ่งที่ผู้เล่นสล็อตควรระวัง the spotlight for a while,
not just in healthcare but skincare as well. 

 

It seems what’s good for your gut health is also great for your complexion,
as skincare brands are jumping on the bandwagon and launching new
products that are formulated for applying bacteria – the beneficial ones,

of course – on your skin.

 

We know that consuming foods with probiotics can indeed boost our health
but does putting them on the skin really help improve its condition and
appearance? How do they work if they truly have an effect on your c
omplexion?

 

WHAT DOES MICROBIOME MEAN?

You’ve probably seen the term mentioned on the labels and ads of many
probiotic skincare products. Microbiome simply means the ecosystem of
microorganisms or microbes found in a particular environment –
whether it be within your body or on the surface of your skin – and is
composed of millions of good as well as bad bacteria.

 

While beneficial and potentially harmful microbes will always co-exist in
the microbiome, the balance between them can shift and affect health.

 

HOW YOU CAN DAMAGE THE MICROBIOME WITHOUT KNOWING IT

According to dermatologist Dr Joyce Lim, from Joyce Lim Skin & Laser Clinic,
the good microbes on the skin’s surface can be similarly displaced, either by
the use of antibiotic creams or a more common culprit – excessive cleansing
of the face. There’s no surprise that, in the pursuit of skin health, many of
us are obsessed with keeping our face clean and tend to be overzealous
with our cleansing routine.

 

While cleansing your skin thoroughly is very important indeed, you can risk
disrupting its microbiome by doing it too frequently or using cleansers that
are too harsh for the skin barrier. If your skin feels tight, itchy or dry after
cleansing, you are probably using the wrong cleanser for your skin type or
simply washing your face more often than necessary.

 

ARE PROBIOTICS TRULY THE ANSWER TO GREAT SKIN?

We know for a fact that consuming foods with probiotics can help restore
the natural balance of the microflora in the gut. This benefits our health
in multiple ways, including strengthening the body’s immunity, aiding
digestion, and improving nutrient absorption. But did you know that
probiotics can also benefit the skin? “Oral probiotics can modulate
the intestinal microbiome and have demonstrated to be effective in
treating skin conditions like eczema, acne and rosacea,” said Dr Lim.
