Acne

Acne can strike at any age. Although it’s more common among teenagers, and sometimes in women going through menopause.

Acne surfaces during times of hormonal imbalance. When glands produce more oil than normal, skin pores get clogged, allowing bacteria (and pimples) to grow.

What May Help?

Zinc
Zinc is a mineral that can also help with acne. You can take it as an oral supplement or as a topical treatment.

A recent review of the past studies on the topic found that zinc can decrease oil production in the skin, and can protect against bacterial infection and inflammation.

Probiotics:

Bifidobacterium lactis HN019
Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 can help address gut-related triggers of acne by helping to improve the health of the gut microbiome, reduce inflammation and manage occasional constipation.

Bifidobacterium lactis Bi-07 
This strain has been shown to reduce the severity of Atopic Dermatitis (AD), an increasingly common chronic inflammatory skin disease, in children.

Lactobacillus acidophilus NCFM 
Lactobacillus acidophilus was one of the first probiotic bacteria to be used to help with acne. In one of the first ever clinical studies assessing the effects of probiotics on skin health, milk containing Lactobacilli was noted to improve the severity of acne13.

It has also been shown to minimise the negative effects of antibiotics on gut microbiome composition23.

Lactobacillus acidophilus may contribute to improved gut health and in turn skin health by improving regularity and preventing dysbiosis.
Lactobacillus acidophilus in combination with Bifidobacterium lactis HN019 has been shown to be increase the number of bowel movements.

Optibac Max - Contains all three of these probiotics.
