Probiotics - The Next Big Skin Care Ingredient: Amy Chang

Probiotics - The Next Big Skin Care Ingredient: Amy Chang

"Unsure what probiotics are? Just stroll through your local grocery store’s dairy aisle and you’ll see them all over yogurt containers these days, as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacterium (try saying that three times fast…). These naturally occurring “good bacteria” can be found in our bodies (i.e. digestive system) and in foods: yogurt, kefir and fermented products, such as kimchi and sauerkraut.

Looking to try out probiotic skin care? DIY yogurt masks are one approach, but if you want to skip the mess, many beauty brands are bringing forth probiotic skin care lines. One such brand is Tula, founded by Dr. Roshini Raj a board certified gastroenterologist and internist. The brand features seven basic products: cleanser, day and night cream, two serums (one for lifting, one for brightening), neck cream, eye cream and an exfoliating mask. All made with a proprietary probiotic technology containing yogurt extracts, neuropeptides, Vitamin’s A, C and E, and chicory root extract to soothe and rebalance the skin."
