Does Probiotic Skincare Work?

By Emily Stutzman, In-House Esthetician, LaFlore® Live Probiotic Skincare

It’s the most popular question googled about topical probiotics and who can blame those late-night searches. Probiotics for the skin is a new idea that challenges what we’ve been taught. Most of us grew up believing all bacteria is bad. This is not entirely true. Much like the gut microbiome is full of bacteria, so is the skin’s microbiome. The skin microbiome is vital to the overall health. It helps defend against pathogens, manages ideal skin pH while also working to deliver vitamins, minerals, and peptides needed to look and feel its best.

Just like diet and stress impact the gut microbiome, the skin microbiome is bombarded with similar stressors. Therefore, it is just as imperative to support the skin as it is the gut. We all understand that by taking oral probiotics we help support the beneficial bacteria in our stomachs to stay healthy and improve digestion, so utilizing topical probiotics to help skin mend and thrive naturally is an initiative solution.

In fact, gentle probiotic skincare appeals to clients who experience skin conditions such as:

· Acne (teens to menopausal women)

· Rosacea

· Eczema

· Sensitive

· Overexposed

Unfortunately, what has caused even more confusion in the skin probiotic category is that numerous brands incorporate only prebiotics or probiotic extracts (lysates) in their formulas and call it “probiotic skincare.” Technically, to be classified as a “probiotic,” the product it should contain LIVE bacteria. Why? Well, the answer is easy, probiotics are what can immediately change the skin microbiome for the better

However, to understand skin probiotics you need to understand how probiotics work.

Many brands use only prebiotics like oats, mint, and seaweed. They are important because prebiotics are the source of energy/food needed for live probiotics and your skin microbiome. However, if you aren’t applying additional live beneficial bacteria when you use these products you are potentially feeding all the current bacteria on your skin including the harmful bacteria.

Other companies use only a probiotic extract, which is scientifically known as lysates. This is a fluid obtained by the process of breaking live probiotic bacterium apart. Probiotic extracts do not contain live probiotics.

This is why it’s important to use a skincare system that includes LIVE probiotics. Topical live probiotics provide an instant boost of beneficial bacteria to the skin microbiome and help actively neutralize harmful bacteria. They are the only type of skin probiotics that deliver the postbiotics we talked about earlier that your skin needs to mend and thrive.

These postbiotics include AHA, PHA, BHA, vitamins like retinol, peptides, amino acids, micronutrients, antioxidants, ceramides, and more. The beauty of using live probiotics instead of lysate-based products (probiotic extracts) is that live probiotics work with your unique skin microbiome to create exactly what it needs rather than taking an educated guess, applying products, and hoping the desired results are achieved.

Topical live probiotics promote healthier-looking skin by helping to:

  • · Provide a boost of beneficial bacteria to the skin microbiome.
  • · Minimize the appearance of redness and blemishes.
  • · Visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

Results you can see…

In an independent 27-day skincare study*, participants reported seeing significant changes in their skin health after using LaFlore® Live Probiotic Skincare’s 3-Step Kit. What makes this 3-Step Kit unique is that it contains prebiotics, LIVE probiotics, and probiotic extracts to fortify the flora in the skin’s microbiome and neutralize harmful bacteria to support the probiotic life cycle.

Most notable results included…

  • · 92% saw improved skin texture.
  • · 97% saw a reduction in spots, this includes red, brown and UV spots.
  • · 92% saw a decrease in fine lines and wrinkles.

Key Takeaways:

Yes, probiotic skincare works if it contains LIVE probiotics. Everyone’s skin is covered in bacteria, and it is the balance of this bacteria that helps create healthy skin. Most common skin conditions are the result of an imbalanced skin microbiome. Topical live probiotics, like those found in LaFlore® are an effective way to instantly replenish beneficial bacteria, balance the skin microbiome and provide your skin with everything it craves. Ultimately, probiotics are a delivery system of goodness the skin needs to mend and thrive–naturally.
