Skin Support
Dr. Jason Mitchell

In this interview with Dr. Jason Mitchell we will discuss the importance of your skins microbiome. Just as we have learned of the importance of the gut microbiome and our soil’s microbiome, we are now learning of the importance of the skin’s microbiome.

Dr. Mitchell explains the role of beneficial bacteria on our skin. He discusses what disrupts our beneficial balance and how topical products can support healthy and glowing skin. He explains the origins of Probulin® Skin Care line and how they can be effective to maintain your skin.

When it comes to probiotics, most people think of digestion. Probiotics are changing skin care. Your skin, as you know, is your body’s largest organ, and in many ways, the most vulnerable. The skin is subject to exposure from the environment as well as from pollutants, and other challenges. Healthy looking skin can be supported and nurtured using both topical and internal probiotics.

How It Works

Probiotics have been shown to support your skin both externally (applied directly to your skin) and internally (ingesting a digestive probiotic supplement). Applied topically, probiotics benefit skin health by:

  • Moisturizing
  • Protecting the skin from the elements
  • Supporting brighter healthier looking skin
  • Supporting skin’s natural renewal process

Taken internally, probiotics help maintain a healthy balance of “good bacteria” in the gut, which in turn benefits your skin. Here’s how probiotics help:

  • Support healthier more youthful appearance of the skin
  • Supports the skin’s protective lipid barrier
  • Maintain a healthy balance of skin bacteria
  • Helps maintain skin’s overall health

Why It Works

Your skin surface is actually a complex ecosystem, just like your gut. Maintaining skin health means supporting the “good bacteria” and maintaining a healthy balance of natural skin flora. Probiotic skin support works with the body’s natural mechanisms to promote healthy looking skin.

In contrast, traditional methods have focused on cleaning the skin as though it were a wall or window—which actually strips away healthy nutrients, moisturizing oils, and good bacteria that help promote and maintain healthy looking skin. The result has been increased drying, wrinkling, and visible signs of aging.

The Gut-Brain-Skin Axis

It’s the idea that every body function is deeply interconnected. Since the 1930’s, scientists have worked to define the connection between healthy gut bacteria and healthy skin. One observation involves consumption of unfermented milk products compared to consumption of fermented dairy (yogurt) and the impact on skin health.

Gut-Brain Axis word cloud on a white background.

Current thinking is that when gut flora are well balanced,and free radicals are held in check by good bacteria. So a combination of digestive and topical probiotics helps support healthy looking skin both from within and without.

Lifestyle Exposure

Paying attention to and making better choices pay off big time, especially over time.

  • Sun Exposure – The harmful rays of the sun can harm the skin especially in cases of over and prolonged exposure.
  • Extreme Temperatures – Extreme heat or cold can dry the skin.
  • Environmental Exposure – Exposure to normal everyday issues such as water and air pollution.
  • Lack of Proper Moisture – If the skin lacks proper moisture it leaves the skin vulnerable.
  • Topical Chemicals – Common to many of the lotions and other topical products available on the market, you will find chemicals that are harmful to the skin such as parabens, glycols, pthalates just to name a few.
  • Lifestyle – Poor lifestyle habits such as smoking, lack of proper hydration, and over exposure to the sun may all age the skin and body as a whole
