Get To The Guts Of Good Skin

We’ve all been educated that probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts good for our health, especially the digestive system/gut.

We usually think of bacteria as something that causes disease but the body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called “good” or “helpful” bacteria because they help keep the gut healthy.

Myriad studies have explored how more than 170 conditions can be helped or treated with probiotics, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome, atopic dermatitis, diarrhoea, allergic rhinitis – even the common cold.

But in the past two years, probiotics have become a big player in skincare.

It’s always important to remember that skin is, itself, an organ – in fact, the body’s largest organ.

Essentially, probiotics can trick the body into focusing on good bacteria and not the harmful ones that increase inflammation ( conditions like acne and rosacea).

They can have a calming effect on the skin by sending direct messages to cells and telling them to stop their release of inflammatory mediators.

New to the genre is Aspect Gold Probiotic Sleep Mask, a luxurious hydrating formula that infuses the skin with probiotic- and antioxidant-rich ingredients to immediately comfort and soothe complexions in need of moisture and nutrition.

Ideal for impure, dry and dehydrated complexions, it helps keep stressed skin calm and balanced.

Key Ingredients:

  • Aloe vera: Hydrating, soothing and calming.
  • Lactococcus ferment lysate: A probiotic that improves cell turnover while increasing hydration levels
  • Sodium hyaluronate: A form of hyaluronic acid that is a naturally occurring glycosaminoglycan with exceptional lubricating and hydrating qualities. It can hold 1,000 times its weight in water
  • Milk protein and lactose: Skin conditioning and humectant properties
  • Acai: Potent antioxidant
  • Argan oil: Skin conditioning
  • Bifida ferment lysate: A probiotic known for its superior hydrating and soothing properties

Recommended for use in the evening, a five cent-sized piece of the formula should be applied to clean skin, using upward, outward motions and allowed to remain for up to 20 minutes and then rinsed off. The mask will not dry, allowing moisture to continuously infuse into the skin.
