Probiotics and Skin Health
Studies indicating a correlation between dairy consumption and acne did not account for fermented dairy, which may contribute to different results due to the presence of probiotics. Skin issues such as acne may be an indicator of internal imbalances. Because the skin is our largest organ, poor nutrition choices may show up there first. Kefir contains a diverse count of probiotics that may help restore a natural balance of good vs. bad bacteria in the gut. Restoring the balance of intestinal microflora can help tame issues related to the stomach that result in skin problems. A balanced gut microflora can also help the body absorb more nutrients from food.
Kefir also makes an effective, nourishing face mask for any skin type thanks to the probiotics and naturally-occurring Alpha-Hydroxy Acid (AHA). AHA’s are a group of chemical compounds that are found in a variety of organic compounds, including fresh fruit, sugar cane, and milk. They’re the key ingredient in many skin care products and can help improve the condition of skin by sloughing away dead surface cells and stimulating the production of collagen. But the skin-loving benefits don’t stop there. This article on Fashionista says that probiotics might help restore the balance of “good bacteria” to your skin, help with exfoliation, and have an anti-inflammatory effect that can alleviate skin issues like acne and rosacea.
