Probiotics are king in the health and wellness industry, reigning for the last few years now.
They’re best known for improving the amount of healthy bacteria in the gut, as well as gut health overall.
And since diet is tied so closely to skin health, it would make sense that eating probiotics would make your skin clearer, right?
But what would happen if we were to use probiotics topically?
Dr. Rajini Raj, world-class dermatologist and founder of the probiotic skincare brand TULA, joins Just Ask David to give us the real facts on what probiotics can do for our skin.
Beauty Breakthrough: Topical Probiotics Skincare
“Probiotics have been on my radar for a while in terms of digestive health. But now just in the last couple years there’s been some really interesting studies looking at topical probiotics on the skin for different benefits,” Dr. Raj shares.
Topical probiotics skincare has been shown to improve all sorts of skin conditions, from rosacea to acne. Probiotics also contribute to overall skin health and beauty.
“Just to be clear, probiotics usually mean live bacteria. The products that we’re talking about… don’t have actually live bacteria being put on the face,” Dr. Raj clarifies.
“What they do have is those bacteria being centrifuge, which means they’ve been stirred up, released all of their good elements, and mixed with other peptides and other things that are good for your skin.”
