Probiotic skincare is showing up on shelves lately, containing beneficial bacteria that can help rebuild this healthy skin ecosystem, giving you back the glowing skin you’re supposed to have. We scoured the shelves of The Detox Market to discover some amazing and effective probiotic skincare products that have been trending lately.

What Are The Benefits of Fermented Skincare?
Back To Balance | If you have sensitive skin, probiotic skincare helps strengthen the skin’s barrier as fermented ingredients reduce the risk of skin irritation and damage by neutralizing toxic substances. If you live in the city, probiotic skincare helps protect against pollution and bring skin back to balance. If you’re acne prone, probiotic skincare is a gentle way to restore balance and help your skin heal itself.
Better Absorption | Fermented ingredient have smaller molecule size so they penetrate your skin better than your average skincare product.
Proactive Nourishment | Fermented ingredients help create new amino acids, organic acids and antioxidants that are good for the skin. As the probiotics break down on the skin’s surface, they create new ingredients that help nourish skin, such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, and vitamins, as well as increasing the presence of ceramides (lipids that help form the skin’s barrier and help skin retain moisture). This all helps to diminish signs of aging, improve moisture retention, and a bring back noticeable radiance.
