We’re on a probiotic kick. Not only does it make our stomachs feel better, which is great on its own, but now it’s playing a role in our skincare. With Tula, Dr. Roshini Raj has created a product that uses probiotics to offer a “balanced meal” to nourish your skin. Designed to stimulate the production of vital defense cells to make your skin healthier and more resistant to damage and aging, you can understand why we love the idea of probiotics for your skin! To learn more about the benefits, Dr. Raj was happy to share her expertise on the matter!

Good bacteria might be the answer for your complexion woes.  

We all know that probiotics – the good for your bacteria that are naturally found in our bodies – offer lots of health benefits including reducing inflammation and improving digestion. Now, recent research is showing us that the same good bacteria can have powerful skincare benefits.

Just as our insides, our skin is also colonized by a diverse group of living microorganisms commonly referred to as the microbiome. This microbiome is like our second skin. It guides our immune system and helps protect the skin against foreign microorganisms. In fact, the health of your skin is directly linked with the balance of the good and bad bacteria and any disruptions in the balance of these organisms can result in skin disorders or infections.

Topical probiotics can play a vital role in protecting your skin’s unique microbiome. By forming a protective shield on your skin’s surface, they stop your cells from “seeing” or reacting to bad bacteria and developing inflammation, which may age your skin and aggravate acne or rosacea. “This is known as “bacterial interference,” as probiotics protect the skin and interfere with the ability of bad bugs (or bacteria and parasites) to provoke an immune reaction.” – American Academy of Dermatology. In this way, probiotics promote a natural balance of the skin flora, supplying the same anti-inflammatory nutritive elements to your skin that help your gut while stabilizing its immune system.

Aside from offering anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial benefits, probiotics can also help hydrate aging skin and help with fine lines and wrinkles. There is also some evidence indicating that probiotics may boost collagen production, the main protein in skin that affects its texture and plumpness.

If you are looking to try topical probiotics, our TULA skincare line offers you a great way to experience all the great benefits topical probiotics have to offer. We use a patented Probiotic Technology and other nutritious ingredients like Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids, blueberries, turmeric and white tea extracts to protect, strengthen and nourish the skin. We like to say that our products are like a “healthy smoothie” for your skin, feeding your skin the same way a healthy diet nourishes your body.
