These days, you can hardly pick up a magazine or click on a beauty blog without reading about the amazing health benefits of probiotics. There’s no doubt about it: probiotics are one of the hottest trends in beauty and wellness. And for good reason! Here at Tela Beauty Organics we’ve been doing research on probiotics. Turns out that the buzzworthy ingredient found in yogurt is not only good for your gut, but for your skin and hair as well!
What Are Probiotics?
Although we often think of bacteria as disease-causing germs, your body is actually full of bacteria, both good and bad. In fact, the bacteria in your body outnumber your cells 10 to 1! A healthy individual has a balanced microbiome of good and bad bacteria, but when this balance is thrown off, it can lead to illness.
Probiotics are the good bacteria. They’re live microorganisms (think bacteria and yeast) that are found naturally in your body. These good bacteria are essential for keeping your gut and skin healthy. Our gut flora performs many functions essential to our health, including manufacturing vitamin K and vitamin B. They also help with digestion and stimulate the immune system.
How Probiotics Help Your Skin
Like your gut, healthy skin has its own microflora with an abundance of “good bacteria” to help guard against the growth of harmful bacteria. Using irritating products with synthetic ingredients can throw off the pH of your skin, creating an environment conducive to the growth of harmful bacteria. Harmful bacteria on the skin can lead to a whole host of skin issues.
While eating fermented foods or taking a probiotic supplement will improve skin, probiotics can also be applied topically for even better results. When applied topically, probiotic-infused skincare lowers the skin’s pH, creating an environment for healthy bacteria while discouraging the proliferation of unhealthy, complexion-harming bacterias. Look for products that include live probiotics or prebiotics, which are non-digestible plant carbohydrates that “feed” healthy bacteria while preventing the growth of unhealthy bacteria.
Probiotics & Hair Care
The same health principles that apply to your skin also apply to your scalp. Cleanse, condition, and treat your scalp. You would never dream of skipping your daily skincare routine. The same thing applies for your hair and scalp because you wear your hair everyday. Harsh shampoos and residue-building products may throw of the balance of your scalp’s bacteria microbiome. This can cause suboptimal growing conditions for your hair. The result? Dull, slow-growing hair prone to breakage and split ends.
By using hair care products with probiotics, you can regulate the microflora of your scalp. A balanced bacteria microbiome means a healthy scalp and an optimal environment for flourishing hair growth.
