protecting your dkin from the sun preventing sun damage

Sun Protection in pill?

posted in: Skincare tips

Did you know that adding a probiotic supplement to your diet can actually protect your skin from UV damage? I had heard that anecdotally from a friend that worked at P&G to produce the supplement Align. The company actually found during studies that, in addition to digestive benefits, Align decreased fine lines around the eyes! Of course, it doesn’t seem limited to just the brand name, perhaps any Lactobacillus supplement will do it (but the branded Align strain is what has the studies done on it)

Well, it’s worth a try and taking a probiotic doesn’t seem to have a downside, so I’m all for protecting my skin from wrinkling and aging on the cheap!

And there are actual studies that show it too, if you want to learn more:
