In addition to keeping skin healthy from the inside out, probiotics can be applied topically to benefit the skin quickly and directly. Probiotics are able to strengthen the skin barrier, reduce inflammation and redness, promote moisture absorption and reduce the appearance of fine lines. And this is why we’re now seeing so many probiotics in skincare products, whether they be cleansers, serums, moisturisers, or masks. In fact, probiotics are a big 2019 beauty trend, so expect to see them sweeping the skincare shelves.

I recommend getting down and dirty with skincare products containing probiotics. Here are a few recommendations that cover off every step of a skincare routine…

First up is a cleanser from a brand that puts the pro in probiotic, Meder Beauty Science. The Swiss brand’s Net-Apax Prebiotic Cleanser is a cream cleanser designed for those with thin, traumatised, irritated, and sensitive skin. It contains silver mallow extract to soothe skin, ease discomfort, and even suppress inflammation. Prebiotic BioEcolia® is (of course) also included to re-balance, maintain and stimulate ecoflora, to strengthen the skin’s own natural protection. The scentless cleanser has a lightweight consistency that turns milky when mixed with water. It applies and rinses away perfectly, however I wouldn’t recommend using this to remove heavy makeup – it’s not designed for that. Instead, opt for a double cleanse and use this as your final product.
