The Power of Probiotics
By now, you have probably heard the importance of probiotics and how having a healthy population of beneficial bacteria in your body is the cornerstone of your overall health.
These healthy bacteria are so incredibly important because they protect you from the bad bacteria, viruses, mold, and other environmental toxins you experience every single day. The more diverse healthy bacteria you have, the healthier you will be. So having probiotics for your skin is just as important as having probiotics inside your gut.
Taking a quality probiotic supplement, eating fermented foods like sauerkraut, and drinking fermented liquids like coconut water kefir are a few of the most powerful things you can do for your health, and my first prescription for any skin issue or hormonal imbalance.
Probiotics for the Skin
Now that you are taking your probiotics and eating your fermented foods for optimal health, skin, mood, and brain function – it is time to think about the bacteria on the OUTSIDE of your body.
Just like your inside organs that contain millions of bacteria, your skin also contains an entire ecosystem of bacteria of its own. The harsh soaps, shampoos, and lotions we use are killing this good bacteria, leaving you more prone to have skin issues, and a weak immune system.
It is time to be mindful of the bacteria that is living on us topically- and use natural soaps to keep them alive.
For any skin issue you may be dealing with, probiotics taken both internally and applied topically will work wonders!
Most of the time when people are dealing with acne, eczema, or any other skin condition- harsh creams, cleansers, and lotions are prescribed to try and treat the issue. The problem is, this is killing off all of the good bacteria that fight any bad bacteria on your skin, leaving it wide open for any bad bacteria or environmental toxins to harm the skin and make your condition worse.
You need that good bacteria to protect you, keep your skin clean, and keep your immune system strong.
What is the take away? Go play in the dirt, it’s good for your skin and immune system 😉
The AO+ Mist is brilliant because it is a spray that contains beneficial bacteria that consume the harmful bacteria that cause body odor, acne, and other skin conditions. This is the first product on the market that contains specific, powerful strains of good bacteria that keep your skin glowing and clear.
