Fort Lauderdale, Florida, May 23, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Balsam Probiotics, a leading probiotics company based in South Florida, discusses the advantages of probiotics for skin health as well as the importance of a healthy gut.
Probiotics are often thought of as something found in yogurt, or in a pill form to help with digestion or stomach issues. However, there is so much more to probiotics (which is the “good” bacteria in the gut) that helps balance the flora in the gut microbiome. More and more research has shown that probiotics can improve skin disorders like rosacea, eczema and acne and help fight damaging free radicals that cause aging.
There have been many studies, dating back over 70 years ago, researching the connection between probiotics and skin health. New studies now show the relationship of different probiotic strains and overlap between gastrointestinal health and skin disorders such as acne. The latest and newest research backed up by clinical studies, now confirm the positive results of applying probiotics topically to the skin and just how much the role of probiotics can benefit and improve skin issues.
Probiotics have antimicrobial qualities and can fight against the harmful bacteria that triggers inflammation and causes acne and rosacea. The concept of applying probiotics topically to treat skin issues is still very new and revolutionary. This innovative, cutting-edge technology of capturing the power of probiotics in a form that can be applied to the skin, can protect the skin barrier from outside attackers, like those damaging free radicals that cause aging. Research is just at the surface of understanding the possibilities probiotics has in skincare, and it’s a very exciting time in the industry.
So, what do probiotics do, and how can they can help skin problems? Probiotics are living microorganisms (the good bacteria) inside the gut and on the skin that form a protective shield against the bad bacteria that causes the immune system to react - which is the root cause of breakouts and flare ups. Acne, eczema, and rosacea are the body’s way of reacting to the bad bacteria that comes from poor eating, stress, the environment, UV rays, and all kinds of other toxins that the body considers foreign organisms. Scientists refer to this two-way communication system between the gut and the brain as the gut - brain - axis. The body then reacts instinctively by sending out responses to defend itself against these foreign invaders, which is what causes the inflammation, as well as redness and bumps that are common in skin conditions like acne, eczema, and rosacea.
When probiotics are applied topically in skincare, they form a protective barrier on the skin's surface and prevent the bad bacteria from penetrating the skin cells and interfere with the ability of the attackers to cause an immune reaction. In essence, probiotics guard skin from pathogens (the bad bacteria). The probiotics have a calming effect on the skin cells and send healthy signals to stop the immune system from reacting which is what causes the acne flare ups.
Researchers are hopeful that with a healthy diet and healthy bacteria from probiotics, both taken as a supplement and applied topically for a true inside-out effect, those that suffer from acne, eczema, and rosacea can prevent inflammation and breakouts.
By keeping a healthy balance of the good bacteria in the gut, with probiotics, people who suffer from skin disorders can manage and prevent future flare-ups.
