    6 Ways To Pack In Extra Probiotics

    Yes we know that probiotics are in yogurt, kombucha, pickled veggies and even "live" protein bars on the shelves of pretty much any grocery store. Probiotics are naturally in, or added into many types of food, but that's not where your journey to a healthier microbiome ends. Here's 6 more ways you can get creative with putting probiotics on (and therefore into) your skin, not just on your plate!

    Whether you have been on antibiotics, are recovering from an infection or having digestive issues, probiotics are your new best friend. And it's not only restrictive to food. Since skin is porous, and many medications are already absorbed through the skin (think pain relief creams, steroid creams, nicotine, and so on) it only makes sense that probiotics can be absorbed topically in skincare, makeup, and more.
