Rich in probiotics and lactic acid – an efficacious Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), this self-preserving refiner breaks down dead skin cells, helping to improve cellular turnover as it refines the skin and reveals an improved texture. The lactic acid also helps improve the natural moisturising factors within the skin, while helping to stimulate collagen production and promote a more hydrated, moisturised and plump complexion.
“As we age, the skin thins and studies have shown show that AHAs such as the lactic acid found in The Beauty Chef’s Probiotic Skin Refiner, help increase skin thickness, while helping to reverse skin damage caused by long term UV exposure,” says Carla.
“When applied regularly to the skin, AHAs such as lactic acid can also lighten skin spots, alleviate roughness and reduce the appearance of ageing, particularly fine lines and wrinkles. It has also been shown to firm up sagging skin and promote collagen growth in the deeper layers of the dermis,” adds Carla.
While the benefits of ingesting probiotics are well-known, as a topical skincare product, the probiotics found in The Beauty Chef’s Skin Refiner work to balance, hydrate and improve the skin’s texture. The Lactobacillis probiotics found in the refiner help balance the skin’s natural flora, strengthen the skin’s barrier system and boost the skin’s immune health. Additionally, bio-fermented lactic acid gently exfoliates the skin, increases the skin’s natural moisturising abilities and stimulates collagen synthesis.
The Beauty Chef’s Probiotic Skin Refiner can be used as part of your daily beauty routine. Apply after cleansing with a cotton wool pad and follow with your favourite moisturiser. Use morning and night.
