Probiotics ... for my face? Why yes, we have that!

You may have heard that our unscented body b’udder makes an amazing face cream, and it’s absolutely true. But do you know why? It’s because raw goat’s milk is jam packed (we’re talking a compact car on a family vacation packed) with probiotics! Thanks to science, we know that probiotics are amazing for our gut! They help with digestion, and even boost your immune system. But what happens when you put them on your skin and not just in your body?

When applied to your skin, probiotics become a super shield, helping to prevent infections and skin inflammation from conditions such as eczema, rosacea, and acne. According to dermatologist, Dr. Whitney Bowe, “People who struggle with acne or rosacea, their immune systems recognize certain microscopic organisms as being foreign invaders, and their bodies mount an immune reaction. But, if you have probiotics on your skin, the probiotics protect you from those triggers. Applying probiotics topically also produces antimicrobial peptides, which act like natural antibiotics that kill off harmful bugs--we’re especially exposed to those during winter.”

If that wasn’t enough of an incentive, “There are actually specific probiotic strains that have been shown to promote ceramide production, which are healthy lipids naturally found in skin that trap moisture and strengthen the skin barrier.” So, your skin will be brighter, better hydrated, and stronger! Are you reading this?!

Maybe you’re an Oil of Olay lifer, or a quick Covergirl BB Cream applier in the morning … there is absolutely nothing wrong with that! However, if you are continually covering acne and redness with makeup because you just can’t seem to clear it up, let our unscented body b’udder replace your daily moisturizer! It just might be your new best friend (heck, maybe I am too. Should we grab coffee sometime?)
