Columbia Skincare just introduced two new products – Probiotic Concentrate and Probiotic Complex, the first copically applied creams that harness the wellness benefits of probiotics specifically for skincare. Probioitcs, also known as “good bacteria”, found in yogurt, sauerkraut, kefir and other foods, have been keeping people healthier longer for years. But now, Columbia Skincare has developed a type of probiotic specially for topical use that helps promote the health and wellness of the body’s largest organ, the skin.
The American Academy of Dermatology has called probiotics one of the new beauty breakthroughs which can help promote clearer skin, decrease skin sensitivity, redness and inflammation.
According to Steven Rosenfeld, a company spokesperson, these topical probiotic formulations effectively act on the most important biological feature in aging skin…its ability to renew itself, which disappears as we age. By utilizing healthy bacteria, plant stem cells and amino acids, Columbia Skincare products provide bacterial interference, and protect the skin from bad bacteria and parasites that provoke the immune system, causing such conditions as acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.
In addition to helping control these serious and sometimes painful skin conditions, Columbia Skincare probiotic products could change the paradigm on anti-aging treatments. With regular use of these products, results will be the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, while improving skin luminosity and elasticity. Who doesn’t want healthy skin? Not only healthy, but these probiotic products will nourish and renew to give you healthy and beautiful skin.
I have been taking Probiotics for years and I notice a big difference in my health – and my gut – so it makes sense that using probiotics on my skin would also have a positive effect. These probiotic products make my skin feel silky smooth and absorb quickly. And I like that the performance is backed by clinical trial experience that showed real results, and this is not just another gimmick. I have just started using Columbia SkinCare Probiotics last week and while I have noticed minor results – healthy feeling and looking skin – I plan to continue to use it.
