S01 E11 – Best Probiotics for Acne (And Why They’re Not a Magic Bullet)

Probiotics are like a super tool for our health (and skin!), but figuring them out can be a bit tricky! It’s all about understanding what works best for you. In this episode, we take a deep dive into the fascinating world of probiotics, and we’ll show you why choosing the right ones and tailoring them to your needs is the real game-changer for your gut!

In this week’s episode, we discuss…

  • Why identifying the right probiotic for your requirements can enhance your gut health.
  • The role and value of colony forming units (CFUs) in making an informed probiotic choice.
  • Aligning particular gut issues with matching probiotic strains for optimal health.
  • The practitioner-grade brands we use most often with clients in The Clear Skin Solution.
  • The power of prebiotic and probiotic-rich foods for supporting optimal gut health.

Probiotics are not a magic bullet for your gut. They are not a magic bullet for acne. But they will be a very important tool in your acne-clearing toolbox.

Paragraph

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

Acne is more than skin deep; it's a signal of internal imbalances. This explains why prescriptions, medicated creams, and high-end facials often fall short. Clearing your skin requires an inside-out approach, and we're dedicated to guiding you every step of the way.

"After a few months, my skin improved significantly."

Now my skin is completely blemish-free, I don’t even have to wear makeup. I don’t even break out around my cycle. I really owe it to Katie for her knowledge, and guidance during this clear skin journey. Thank you, Katie!!

"My scars and blemishes from the past continue to fade."

I'm grateful for the knowledge, strength and support to get current breakouts under control while my body continues to detox and heal.

Laurenne B.

"My skin is definitely consistently good now."

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

Sara P.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!

-Nicole B.
