Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for you, especially the microbiome, which is the flora and fauna of our skin. We usually think of bacteria as germs that cause diseases, but in fact our body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. The right amount of bacteria keeps our ecosystem healthy and running and that’s why probiotics are super useful when nourishing and caring for our microbiome. Probiotics are often called "good" or "helpful" bacteria because they help keep our skin healthy. The good bacteria strive to fight against bad bacteria and calm down inflammation, prevent premature aging and cure other problems on our skin. Probiotics will boost the good bacteria and keep the small soldiers fueled and ready to fight! When our skin microbiome is healthy even our skin barrier is strong and protective.
