Prebiotics and probiotics probably sound familiar to you, but have you ever heard of postbiotics?
Postbiotics are the leftover waste from the fermentation process that probiotics produce in the intestine. The benefits of postbiotics range from the stomach to the skin. Because there is such a strong connection between your gut and skin, skincare experts believe that postbiotics are the next big thing in skincare.
Some of the positive effects of postbiotics include preventing obesity as well as promoting your skin’s microbiome, which is shield-like layer on the surface of your skin that contains both good and bad bacteria. Using postbiotic rich products can increase the growth of the good bacteria and reduce the amount of bad bacteria in the microbiome.
You can also boost your postbiotic concentration directly from eating probiotic rich foods like pickles, buttermilk, sauerkraut, and more. Doing so will protect your skin from pollutants, reduce inflammation, and even diminish the appearance of wrinkles.
Not only will postbiotics keep your tummy happy, but they will also keep your skin balanced and healthy at the same time.
