By now you’re probably familiar with some of the benefits probiotics offer in the gut health department, but you may be less aware of the calming effects they have on the skin.
Foods like yogurt, kombucha, and tempeh contain millions of these healthy bacteria, and when consumed, they counteract the awful bacteria that lead to inflammation. When applied topically, you can expect the same results, and thus achieve clearer skin since acne and pimples are our bodies immune response to harmful bacteria.
Of course, we’re not suggesting that you smother food on your face to eliminate blemishes, but you may want to consider adding a probiotic-infused serum or moisturizer to your skincare routine if a healthier complexion is the goal.
We’ve rounded up seven probiotic formulas that help to reduce redness, dullness and promote radiant looking skin. Check them out!
