Sometimes our gut needs the help of a probiotic to get it working at optimum efficiency, and now we can offer the same to our skin. The surface of our skin is home to million of bacteria. A healthy skin will have enough ‘good’ bacteria to keep out the ‘bad’. But if our barrier is compromised, this doesn’t always happen. It makes sense that we do everything we can to keep our skin functioning at its best. It’s our biggest organ and serves as protection from the outside world and keeps the rest of our bodies safe.
A compromised barrier is the cause of sensitive skin and a host of dermatological issues. Yes, some are more severe than others and some even need medical intervention, but the heart of these issues is a damaged barrier. The incidence of sensitive skin is growing at an alarming rate, and we mainly only have ourselves to blame. We scrub, peel and laser to achieve that Instagram glow, when, in fact, we should all be doing less to achieve a glowing complexion. A healthy skin is a happy skin, so let it work unhindered.
This is where Exuviance Probiotic Lysate Anti-Pollution (R700) comes in. Developed with a 10% concentration of Probiotic Lysate (from the bacteria naturally found in yoghurt), this formula works on discrepancies and help to restore balance in the microbiome of the skin.
The addition of 8% Polyhydroxy Acid means that it delivers potent antioxidant protection from free radicals, as well as serving as a very mild exfoliant. Hyaluronic acid completes the story to offer sustainable hydration throughout the day.
You apply it to clean skin, before your serum. I like the fact that you get your antioxidant protection on first, so that you then have more playing room for different serums to target other concerns.
