Skincare that's alive!
It’s a no-brainer than anything that’s good enough to put into your body can be put onto your body (i.e your skin), and countless food-based ingredients have found their way into your beauty products. Extracts, oils and acids derived from fruits and vegetables have been used for personal-care purposes since ancient times, but probiotics have only recently become a skincare thing. There’s no disputing the scientific evidence that these live bacteria are beneficial for our digestive (and perhaps overall) health, so it’s no wonder they’ve made their way to the beauty aisle—and a brand-new line called LaFlore is yet another way to give your skin a daily dose.
Featuring a patent-pending probiotic technology that helps make the most of your skin’s existing microbiome (yep, bacteria are having a party on your face right now), LaFlore is formulated to increase “good” bacteria and send “bad” bacteria (like the ones that cause acne) packing. The three-step regimen includes a cleanser, serum and moisturizer (which you can also buy as a kit) that are all formulated with a variety of probiotics and all-natural ingredients—and they are beneficial for all skin types. From anti-aging and acne to rosacea and eczema, everyone can reap the benefits of these good bacteria, which have been found to optimize the skin’s natural exfoliation as well as strengthen the skin barrier, protect against environmental damage, reduce inflammation, increase hydration and more.
I’ve personally seen the difference probiotics make by taking supplements and slathering them on my skin—so what are you waiting for?
