Prebiotic skincare is emerging as a hot topic in skincare and for the right reasons too! The benefits of following a prebiotic skincare routine showcases a visibly positive effect on the skin. In fact, there are several studies which prove that probiotic and prebiotic therapy can be universally applied and can even provide an anti aging effect.
But, wait, what’s the difference between probiotics and prebiotics?
Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts (the good ones!) that have important health benefits for our digestive system. Probiotics are live microorganisms that can be used topically or ingested to improve your health. They can even prevent harmful bacteria from entering the skin and help you avoid inflammation related problems such as breakouts, premature aging etc.
Meanwhile, prebiotics are the food that your probiotics eat to stay alive to do their job of protecting the skin more effectively. They even help to maintain the skin’s Ph level and act as strong defenders against external environmental dangers to the skin.
Our skin's microbiome shields us from harm and one can even find similar organisms that exist in the gut and on the skin's surface too. The mix of bacteria, yeasts, and parasites that live on your skin is referred to as your skin microbiome. The largest organ in the human body, the skin, is home to a complex ecosystem of microorganisms, the majority of which are harmless or even beneficial to their host.
Probiotics can help to strengthen the skin barrier, reduce inflammation and redness while improving moisture absorption. It is even a promising solution for acne skincare and prevents damage to collagen, elastin and healthy cells.
