These insights combined with further scientific research confirm microbiome health can be improved through topical applications and ingestion of pre & probiotics which in combination have the capacity to optimise, maintain, even restore the skin's microbiome by boosting good bacteria and minimising the bad.
Additional studies reveal the positive effects probiotics have on slowing the signs of skin ageing and how they can restore acidic skin pH, alleviate oxidative stress, reduce photo-ageing, improve the skin barrier function and enhance hair quality [ix]. Other studies suggest there may be beneficial treatments for Acne and Atopic Dermatitis and that when the gut and skin microbiome ecosystems are out of balance, this can lead to infections and skin conditions like acne, eczema and rosacea [x].
Skincare products with the right combination of pre & probiotics, taken both orally and when applied directly to the skin can help to restore microbiome balance and consequently help reduce acne, dry skin, even slow the signs of ageing. Probiotics feed healthy bacteria to balance the skin's pH and protect against free radical damange. Prebiotics feed the good bacteria that help balance the skin's pH and support the skin's barrier function and therefore help boost healthy bacteria. Pairing and applying a prebiotic and probiotic is a more efficient way to achieve microbiome balance [xi]. Probiotics taken orally help create a healthy gut, reducing toxicity in the blood stream and so improving the absorption of important minerals, vitamins and nutrients that help the body rid itself of the waste that causes inflammation.
Together these scientific research insights encouraged the Beauty & Vitality team to develop new skincare formulations that have resulted in the UK's only dual product kits that deliver skincare inside and out. As the research suggests, our skin's needs change over time which is why Beauty & Vitality comes in 2 variants:
Beauty & Vitality Flawless Skincare: a moisturiser and supplement combination formulated to deliver balanced care to help counter breakouts and acne; nourishing the microbiome to counter everyday pathogens, optimising moisture levels, improving immunity leaving your skin feeling softer, naturally clear and flawess.
Beauty & Vitality Radiant Skincare: a moisturiser and supplement combination designed to help slow the signs of ageing and counter the effects of hormone changes including the menopause. Together this probiotic skincare solution helps rebalance and protect the skin's microbiome which in turn helps restore dull and lifeless skin leaving you looking and feeling your best.
Both variants include other skin loving nutrients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin c and much more. All products are vegan friendly, manufactured to the highest standards here in the UK and delivered in packaging that can be kerb-side recycled.
