Probiotics: Good for Your Skin Too!
You might have heard of probiotics before and that's probably due to having consumed yogurt in your lifetime, suffered an illness, or had gastointestinal discomfort. These were first seen in ancient Roman & Greek times who consumed fermented products & cheeses that contained probiotics and were recommended as a part of a healthy diet. However, the full benefits of probiotics has yet to been discovered as there is still much research to be done.
Currently, there are clinical studies being conducted which attempt to look at the effects of probiotics on IBS, immune function, cancer, and other bowel inflammatory issues. They have been proven to be effective in children with the prevention of allergies, specifically in regards to eczema; they may also hep to control high blood pressure and cholesterol. So what do probiotics do for your skin? In 2014, the American Academy of Dermatology published an article about the positive effects that probiotics have on acne and rosacea and emerging research is showing promising results.
With daily use, they can provide a protective shield for the skin as they prevent skin cells from seeing 'bad bacteria' & other parasites that can cause inflammation, redness, bumps [rosacea]. Probiotics also have antimicrobial properties by making 'holes' in the bacteria and then destroying them. Additionally, probiotics have a calming effect on the skin by getting your skin cells to stop sending "attack messages" to your immune system- thus causing acne flares, for example.
The Beauty Closet Recommends:
I fell in love with this brand immediately and it's mostly due to their specially-formulated quality products that actually do what they promise! It helps you skin do the thing that it was designed to do: utilize its own ability to renew itself! Columbia's Probiotic Complex closely resembles a night/day and as such, it can be applied in both the am. & pm. This awesome cream will increase your skin's luminosity, improve skin health, and even helps reduce fine lines & wrinkles.
The Results? I've seen a marked improvement with all of those issues and I love the way my skin feels as well- super smooth & soft- the remainder of my skincare routine & my makeup also go on like a dream as well :) It's the first probiotic cream formulated specifically for topical use, giving this powerful complex a real name for itself in the beauty world!
This is by far, Columbia's best product they have to offer. It's packed full of probiotics plus, plant stem cells & peptides that enhance your skin's natural renewal process and intensify these natural processes as well. What you end up with is rejuvenated skin that's clearer, healthier, smooth, and brighter. You can also improve fine lines and wrinkles with the concentrate as well. Dermatologist recommended, this is a great product for all skin types and I highly recommend this fantastic skincare item for anyone who wants to boost their beauty regimen to the next level- it's definitely a one-of-kind product that makes a positive difference.
I would say the only drawback that I really see at all with either of these wonderful products, is the price point. I know it might be a bit high than some might normally spend and I am also often hesitant about a high-priced bottle of anything that claims it will work miracles. However, i can attest through the regular use of this product that you wouldn't be wasting your time or your money- you're going to get real results...I know...I've seen them for myself ;)
There are quite a few skincare brands and products out currently out on the market who claim they use science, quality ingredients, or know what they're doing; sadly however, many of these brands are far from any of their claims. Columbia Skincare is different. They are available exclusively at select spas and dermatologists offices; all of their products are manufactured right here in the U.S. and under strict CGMP guidelines. Their products are all also approved by the EWG's Skin Depp and PETA, making them a company that truly does care about what their doing and they want to make sure they do it right.
