I’m 31 and you would think that I would be well past the acne stage by now, but no acne is something I’m dealing with more now than ever before….pouts.
I was reading Shape Magazine (Feb 2010 Issue) and came across some good news for us acne sufferers.
Creams and cleansers that contain probiotics can help you clear up acne. They change the PH of your skin “making it inhospitable for blemish – causing bacteria.” says Tami Meraglia, M.D, a Seattle based physician.
She also recommends taking a probiotic supplement saying:
“And popping a probiotic supplement can enhance the complexion clearing effect.”
Some of the products that were recommended in the article are Clinique Medical Probiotic Cleanser ($28.00) , Epicuren Discovery Acidophilus Probiotic Facial Cream ($60.00) and Sonya Dakar Acidophilus Flora Dietary Supplement ($44.00).
I’m very interested in trying a probiotic cleanser, but they all seem fairly expensive. Do you know of a good Probiotic cleanser? Has anyone tried the Clinique product yet? Any one ever find that taking a probiotic has helped clear up their acne? Please share.
