INGREDIENT PROFILE: THE BENEFITS OF PROBIOTICS FOR SKIN HEALTH - Paradox

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

PROBIOTICS, WHAT ARE THEY?

The 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 thatBacteria 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. 

THE BENEFITS OF PROBIOTIC SKINCARE

Probiotic 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.  

Probiotic 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.
