Are probiotic skincare worth the hype? According to Dr. #whitneybowe, they are. She tells #voguemagazine: Probiotics benefit the skin in three key ways. First, they act as a protective shield by preventing bad microorganisms from provoking an immune reaction. Second, they produce natural antibiotics called antimicrobial peptides that combat bad bacteria. And lastly, they boost the skin's functionality in dealing with external damaging factors including free radicals, sun, and pollution. "All of these benefits help to reduce inflammation... helps reduce flare-ups and preventing premature aging.” #laundrites, thoughts?🤔 [Full article linked in our Instagram Story] #Tula #LaFlora #aureliaskincare #esseskincare #GalinéeSkincare #thebeautychef #glowbiotics #Agenist #ampernaskin

@hollysduvall haha, in India, a home remedy is to put a thin layer of (homemade) yoghurt on your skin as a facepack.

chong @superkitty79

Why don’t I just slather my probiotic supplements on my face?

holly @hollysduvall

@neerei Aaah I’ve heard that! In the states we sometimes use it to south sunburn🌞!

@neerei

@hollysduvall just google yoghurt face mask. It's easy, DIY, nontoxic and zero waste and INEXPENSIVE

It’s insane to see company’s market probiotics seeing as whenever I take them orally my skin goes to hell

Esse Skincare UK @esseskincareuk

@thebeautybrains2018 Esse has 2 products that contain live probiotics in our retail offering (will happily more about that of you like :)) We agree that there is still sooooo much to learn but we can't deny that much of what goes wrong is directly related to microbiome disruptions and our ignorance of just how important it is. Esse also incorporates prebiotics, lysates and tyndalised versions of probiotics throughout the range... For now, we explore ideas with what we do know and continue learn more all the time - it's very exciting!!!

Esse Skincare UK @esseskincareuk

@vanoodle thank you for thumbs up 😍... 2 of our serums contain live probiocs and the balance of our products incorporate prebiotics, probiotic lysates and tyndalised probiotics :)... All consider microbiome.

The Beauty Brains @thebeautybrains2018

@esseskincareuk so how are your products with actual probiotics preserved?

Esse Skincare UK @esseskincareuk

@thebeautybrains2018 we don't. The formulation is water free and the probiotics are encapsulated - they are activated on contact with the skin (or more correctly on contact with water in the skin's surface).

The Beauty Brains @thebeautybrains2018

@esseskincareuk so are they spite forming? How are the organisms alive if encapsulates and not able to respire?

Esse Skincare UK @esseskincareuk

@thebeautybrains2018 do you mean spore forming?

Esse Skincare UK @esseskincareuk

@thebeautybrains2018 I'd love to suggest we continue this conversation on email. As much as I'm super happy to share all I know, I am more involved in marketing than the deep science of microbes :) - I can rather put you in touch with our science gurus... Info@esseskincare.com - Dee

@yimmypithie

@larocheposayusa has a moisturiser with prebiotics that’s affordable

Heather DeBusk @heatherdebusk

@yimmypithie I started using it about a week ago and LOVE it! It’s too heavy for my whole face but I use it as an eye creams and on my forehead overnight and it’s soooooo good! The one I’m using is Lipitor AP+ Balm and it’s the beat eye cream I’ve ever used. I do see a slight but noticeable difference and I’m 52. Also bought it for my 25 year old daughter for her eczema, which is horrible, and she’s loving it, too. Highly recommend!

@hollysduvall La Roche-Posay, Lipikar AP+ Balm.
