While shopping natural skincare products is a great step towards happy, healthy skin, it is also important to truly understand the ingredients in your skincare products. That’s where we come in: to help guide you through which ingredients to look for, as well as their benefits. Keep reading to learn about the benefits of probiotics一 the main ingredient in our 2-in-1 Probiotic Facial Mist. \nPROBIOTICS, WHAT ARE THEY?\nThe word bacteria often has negative associations, which is completely fair, all things considered. There are, however, certain types of “good” bacteria. The “good” bacteria works to protect your skin from the “bad” bacteria that can lead to breakouts and different skin conditions. New York City dermatologist Debra Jaliman, for instance, states that “Bacteria can play an important part in promoting skin health by preventing infections from becoming more serious.” Probiotics encourage microbial balance, which restores the skin’s barrier and allows good bacteria and microorganisms to thrive. \nTHE BENEFITS OF PROBIOTIC SKINCARE\nProbiotic skincare is anti-inflammatory. Skin inflammation can often lead to an imbalance in microbial diversity一 the “bad” bacteria overwhelms the “good” which leads to increased skin conditions and a worsening of inflammation. Probiotic skincare works to balance this microbial environment and allows the “good” bacteria to heal the skin and reduce inflammation. The less inflammation, the less chance of acne or eczema development, making probiotic skincare acne-preventing, as well. \nProbiotic skincare is anti-aging. As your skin ages, its pH levels become unbalanced, providing the perfect environment for “bad” bacteria to thrive. Using probiotic skincare restores the balance: the “good” bacteria fight off the negative impacts of bad bacteria on the skin. The probiotics work to create a shield that protects the skin from bacteria and impurities, signs of aging, as well as daily wear and tear. \n\nHOW TO USE OUR PROBIOTIC FACIAL MIST IN YOUR BEAUTY ROUTINE\n\n\nAt the end of your skincare: use our mist at the end of your skincare routine, or throughout the day, to hydrate and refresh your skin. \n\nTo wet your beauty blender: instead of water, use our mist to wet your beauty blender before applying your bb cream and\/or foundation一 this will give your makeup an extra sheen. \n\nAs a setting spray: use our mist as a setting spray at the end of your makeup routine to set your look and give it a dewy finish.\n\n\nADD PROBIOTICS TO YOUR ROUTINE WITH OUR 2-IN-1 PROBIOTIC FACIAL MIST: shop here!
