If you grew up in a germaphobic household, you’ll be thinking all bacteria’s bad, right? Well, you’re wrong. There’s good bacteria and bad, and the bacteria in skincare, is not just good, its great! Much like your digestive system, by nurturing your skin’s flora you’ll be able to tackle flare-ups, reduce breakouts and live life with your best skin yet.

Sounds too good to be true, we know. So how do they work? Well, topical probiotics help in three ways. Firstly, they strength the skins natural defence mechanisms, making it more resilient. Secondly, they produce natural antibiotics called ‘antimicrobial peptides’ that combat any developing bad bacteria. And lastly, they boost the skin’s functionality in dealing with new bacteria as well as external stressors- like pollution, the suns UV rays and free radicals.

Once applied they form a protective shield on the skins surface, while also stopping cells from ‘seeing’ or even reacting to bad bacteria. Balancing bacteria is definitely the tricky part, but get it right and you can tame inflammation, reduce the signs of ageing, banish acne and finally see the back of rosacea.

Who should be using probiotic skincare? Well, quiet simply anyone can use it, but those that are prone to inflammations will definitely see the biggest difference. If you’re suffering from a skin flare up or even just a little redness chance are your skin is crying out for probiotics.

If you’re making your first step into probiotic skincare start with Aurelia’s Miracle Cleansing Balm, £45. Much like the name suggests it really is a miracle worker. Packed with eucalyptus oil to decongest, chamomile to soothe, rosemary to invigorate and bergamot to relieve stress. Use it twice to remove all the days dirt and grime, every evening. Skin will feel clean and not one bit tight.

 

Other heroes in the range are the Brightening Botanical Essence, £10 which features quartz crystal water to rebalance not just your skin but your mood too. Spritz it over just cleansed skin, and follow with your favourite serum or use it throughout the day to refresh stale 3pm make-up.

 

And finally the hero of all heroes is the Revitalise & Glow Serum, £90. Yes, it is a little spenny but if you’re tired, stressed or just feeling a little run-down your skin will be the first place that starts to show. Use it morning and night and the glowing compliments will just keep on coming…
