Top 3 Ways to Fight Acne With Probiotics
We all thought that acne and pimples were something we'd leave behind after high school. But it turns out the majority of women in their 20s and 30s will battle adult acne at some point. Whether it's the heat and humidity, that time of month, or just stress from work, adult acne can be just as stubborn as blemishes from our teenage years. Probiotics have been shown to be an effective, safe and gentle way to fight blemishes and problematic skin, especially for young adults and women struggling with hormonal acne. Here are 3 easy probiotic-packed steps you can take to prevent those flare ups.
1. CLEANSE WELL AND OFTEN
Acne is often caused by excess dirt and bacteria on the skin, but cleansing properly isn't always easy. Stubborn makeup can get stuck deep in your pores, and if you're active during the day, sweat can build up and cause irritation. TULA's gel Purifying Cleanser removes impurities and makeup but won't strip or over-dry your skin. The nourishing probiotics in this cleanser help calm irritation and keep the skin hydrated after each use.
It's the wave of the future! Whenever I use probiotics, I notice a difference in how I feel, and my skin is a lot clearer, glowier, and happier. TULA's Gel Cleanser is officially the thing I'm most excited to try!
2. BALANCE YOUR SKIN WITH AN ALCOHOL-FREE TONER
Probiotics are all about balance, and TULA's Pro-Glycolic Resurfacing Gel is just what your skin needs to reduce inflammation and quell breakouts. The alcohol-free, fragrance-free toner uses both probiotics and glycolic acid to balance the skin's surface and restore its ideal pH, giving you a blemish-free, radiant complexion. This gel is gentle enough to use daily and strong enough to remove dead skin build up that might cause blemishes.

3. EXFOLIATE WITH A MASK
Two to three times a week, try using TULA's Exfoliating Treatment Mask to further draw out dirt and bad bacteria from clogged pores. The lactic acid and bentonite clay in the mask remove impurities, dead skin, and debris.
If you haven't used a mask in the past, this Exfoliating Treatment Mask is a simple and easy way to start:
- Start with our purifying gel cleanser to clean the skin.
- Then, apply a thin layer of the mask, avoiding the eye area.
- Leave on for five to ten minutes.
- Dampen fingers and gently massage the product into skin, then rinse well with cool water.
- Follow up with a moisturizer like TULA's Hydrating Day & Night Cream.
