How to Build a Healthy Probiotic Skincare Routine

If you’ve been thinking about switching to a probiotic-infused skincare routine to help restore the natural balance of your skin, you can do so with a few easy steps. Just be sure to do your research to find a probiotic skincare company that uses probiotics in conjunction with superfoods such as blueberries and turmeric to deeply nourish your skin. You want to get the most you can out of the ingredients in your skincare products, so make sure they’re high-quality and from a reputable brand.
Step 1: Cleanse

First, wash your face. Start with a cleanser that contains probiotics in the morning when you wake up and before going to bed at night. The formula you choose should help deep clean without stripping or drying out the skin. Probiotics, such as bifida ferment lysate, will hydrate the skin and lock in moisture. Other ingredients to look for include lactic acid to cleanse and exfoliate, chicory root (an anti-inflammatory prebiotic), and turmeric root and blueberries, which are both powerful antioxidants.

Step 2: Exfoliate

Twice a week, treat your skin to a detoxifying clay mask for gentle exfoliation. Seek out a mask with lactic acid and bentonite clay to gently remove impurities and dead skin cells. If you want firmer-looking skin and desire a more even tone, a probiotic clay mask is perfect. The formula should also contain hydrating nutrients such as jojoba oil and vitamin E to help hydrate, soothe, and calm the skin.

Step 3: Tone

If you want to address uneven toned skin, utilize a probiotic-infused toner after you cleanse your face. Look for an alcohol-free formula that contains glycolic acid and beetroot extract to remove any excess dirt and oil that might be clinging to your skin after cleansing it. With a high-quality probiotic toner, you should notice softer, smoother, and plumper skin with a reduction in the appearance of pores. For an acne-clearing toner, opt for a formula that contains probiotics and salicylic acid.

Step 4: Serum

Depending on what you are trying to target on your face, apply a thin layer of serum after toning. If you are seeking help with dehydrated skin, choose a serum with hydrating ingredients such as prickly pear and hyaluronic acid. The probiotic strain called lactococcus ferment lysate also helps hydrate and lock in moisture.

Step 5: Eye Serum

Your delicate eye area may need its own lightweight serum to target more severe lines, wrinkles, and dark circles—in other words, eye bags treatment. An eye serum with caffeine reduces the appearance of puffiness. Some eye serums are layering products, which means they can go under your regular eye cream for all-day hydration. An effective eye balm, such as Glow & Get It Brightening Eye Balm from TULA Skincare, uses probiotics and superfoods such as watermelon, blueberry, and caffeine. Used on top of or under makeup, this product can tighten and hydrate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Step 6: Moisturize

Be sure to moisturize morning and night either on clean skin or after applying a serum. When used consistently, a moisturizing day and night cream full of probiotics and superfoods can reduce the appearance of fine lines and improve the look of skin’s firmness.

Step 7: Overnight Treatment

Before bedtime and as needed, you may want to consider applying an overnight treatment such as a cream to seal in moisture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Seek out an anti-aging formula that contains powerful probiotics and peptides that can help renew the look of dull skin. Some of the best overnight treatments will contain skin-brightening vitamin C, alpha hydroxy acids to improve the appearance of skin’s firmness, and a mix of watermelon and fruit extracts for a hydrating boost.
