WHAT IS Probiotic Skincare?
Probiotic skincare products:
- build back the skin’s natural defenses against harsh environmental elements.
- form a protective shield against bad bacteria.
- reduce inflammation.
- prevent premature aging.
- eliminate bacteria that cause acne breakouts.
Look for ingredients such as Lactobacillus, Bifidobacterium, Vitreoscilla & xylitol. Probiotic skincare products have a shorter shelf life than other beauty products, as most products are not considered viable for more than six months. Also, most products need to be stored in a cool space or the refrigerator in order to maintain the health and effectiveness of the probiotic ingredients.
