Probiotics. When I hear that word, the first thing I think of are those yogurt commercials from back in the day. You know, the ones where the lady dances around eating her yogurt, and the voice-over talks about how her yogurt contains probiotics, which keep her regular. What do I know about probiotics? They’re the good bacteria, they’re great for your gut health, and they’ll keep things working the way they’re supposed to.
As it turns out, the same concept applies to your skin! Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and it takes the brunt of the environmental and physical damage that you put yourself through on a daily basis. Everything you touch, the pollution around you, the questionable products you use every day?. Everything you do affects your skin, and can throw off that delicate balance of good bacteria that we need to be healthy. Throwing off that balance can lead to skin damage, like acne, redness, and sensitivity.
So what do we do? We restore the balance! Just like eating probiotics can help balance your insides, using probiotics in your skincare products can balance the microflora on your outsides! These probiotics work to strengthen your skin’s defense against environmental damage, keep it properly hydrated, diminish redness and sensitivity, get rid of those feelings of tightness and dryness, and restore that healthy pH balance!
You’ll find these incredibly beneficial probiotics in our Beauty From Bees Vitamin C Facial Cleanser and shampoos (because your scalp is skin, too!), including the Baby Hair and Body Wash . They work in these products to restore your skin to its natural, balanced state - giving you that healthy glow you’re supposed to have! Just like that yogurt had that woman dancing for joy because of her happy gut, these products will have you looking and feeling your best, with a microbiome that will be the envy of all the other microbiomes. Because when your skin is happy, healthy, and looking its best, so are you.
