Sure, many of us are obsessed with adding step after step to our skincare routines. If there is one thing we should pay more attention to, however, it should be destroying bad bacteria that we can pick up from things like environmental toxins. Thankfully, there is a simple answer to this: prebiotics.
Dr. Murad has always advocated wellness in addition to skin health. After discovering the wonders of the ingredient, Murad has come up with two innovative products that will enhance your skincare routine. Before we dive into that, it is smart to ask—what are prebiotics anyway?
Prebiotics vs. Probiotics
We all know that environmental toxins can trigger imbalance on the skin. But did you know that over-cleansing can add to it too? This is where prebiotics come in. Essentially, it is “food” for the good bacteria that help create a healthy balance for nourished skin.
On the other hand, we might be more familiar with probiotics. These are living organisms or bacteria that help combat bad bacteria and aggressors for benefits such as a healthy gut. Examples of great sources of probiotics might already be in your favorite foods, such as yogurt and kimchi.
Prebiotic 3-in-1 MultiMist (P1750)
Does your skin need a quick boost? Reach for this peptide-rich hydrating mist that replenishes the skin with prebiotics. With hydrating sugars, a yeast peptide and a multi-tasking biopolymer complex, the product refreshes the face and primes and sets makeup.
Prebiotic 4-in-1 MultiCleanser (P1950)
This impressive gel-to-oil cleanser nourishes with prebiotics to balance the skin’s microbiome for a healthy, natural glow. The cruelty-free product also features an ultra-cleansing peptide to melt makeup, dirt and excess oil while deeply hydrating the skin at the same time.
