Probiotics and skin care [Video]
While it may seem counterintuitive at first, people need some bacteria in their lives to stay healthy. That's because some it is good for the human body, and actually fights off illness and infection. According to the American Nutrition Association, a good balance involves 85 percent "good" bacteria and 15 percent "bad."
When it comes to healthy skin, your goal should be to optimize the ratio of good to bad bacteria, according to the Journal of Cosmetic Science. A case of acne can be a good example of how bacteria is important to your skin.
The bacteria that causes acne either irritates your skin or blocks the pores. But applying good bacteria to your skin - through the use of topical skin care products with probiotics - will help restore balance to your skin.
