BOOST YOUR SKIN MICROBIOME WITH PROBIOTIC SKIN CARE

We all know how wonderful probiotics are when taken internally, but now we know that probiotics in skin care plays a positive role for your skin. 

Your skin is the largest organ of the body and is the first line of defence from environmental influences. Probiotics in skin care play an important role in keeping the integrity of the skin resilient from external aggressors. The importance of making sure that the barrier of our skin is in tact can sometimes be overlooked. This is actually in my opinion one of the most important factors I look at when asssessing a clients skin. Is their barrier intact? The barrier of the skin contains ceramides, lipids and cholesterol which can be degraded with overuse of acids, exfoliation and oil free products. A skin with a compromised barrier is a vunerable skin. This is the first line of defense from the environmental and otehr factors and needs to be intact to ensure the integrity of the skin is as it should be to support and protect the underlying layers. 

Our skin microbiome is the term used for the skin’s community of microorganisms (the microbiota + their genes + their surrounding environment) and is key in preventing aggressive microorganisms from causing infections. It is also necessary to process skin proteins, fatty acids and sebum (oil) whilst supporting our skin immune system.


Elevated pH of the skin has been associated with several skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis. The Elevated pH can have an affect on your skin functions exacerbating the skin condition further. Topical application of probiotic skin care has been shown to reduce the pH of the skin along with strengthening the barrier of the skin, so it is more resilient against harmful external factors.


Probiotics in Skin Care have other benefits:

  • It can secrete useful metabolites (for skin metabolism) - yes our skin metabolises all we put on it!
  • Wound protection
  • Maintaining skin youthfulness and skin freshness
  • Improves the skins barrier and prevents water loss, excellent for dehydrated/dry skins
  • Fights acne
  • Microbes on our skin also communicate with our body, and in particular play an important role in our immune system
