What Are Probiotics – Frequently Asked Questions About Probiotics
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about Probiotic Action™. If you don’t see the answer to your question below, please do not hesitate contact us via email or our Facebook page.
Q: What is Probiotic Action™?
A: Probiotic Action™ is a liquid topical solution which, unlike generic acne cream, contains “good bacteria” naturally found on healthy human skin. Using spore-forming probiotic bacteria, the bacterial cell that makes up Probiotic Action™ is a hardened spore structure which maximizes acne treatment for your skin. Using probiotics for acne, rosacea, or eczema is an all natural alternative.
Q: How does Probiotic Action™ work?
A: Probiotic Action™ works by eliminating excess skin cells and toxins that P-acnes need to survive. Probiotic Action™ helps to restore the natural bacteria balance of your skin, making it healthier. In addition, Probiotic Action™ creates a layer of good bacteria on your skin, which helps protect against future breakouts. This is why we believe Probiotic Action™ to be the best acne treatment – it acts as both a treatment and a preventative.
Q: What are P-acnes? Is this another kind of acne that I need to worry about?
A: Propionibacterium ances (or P-acnes) are the bacteria responsible for inflamed acne breakouts. They are naturally occurring and usually harmless. It’s when your pores become clogged with oil and dead skin that P-acnes become an issue, feeding off the material in the pore to become the dreaded pimple.
Q: I have eczema. How can Probiotic Action™ help me?
A: Eczema, as you know, can be a very painful and often embarrassing condition. People who have overly dry or overly wet skin can develop eczema. When skin becomes too dry or too wet, the bacteria balance that is needed for healthy skin is gone. What Probiotic Action™ does is help to restore the natural bacteria balance to your skin.
You might also like to know that probiotics were proven in clinical trials conducted between 2007 and 2011 to have a positive effect on reducing the rate of eczema by about 20%.
Q: I have rosacea. Can Probiotic Action™ help me too?
A: Yes! Although, as you know, there is no cure for rosacea, Probiotic Action™ should be able to help. Taking better overall care of your skin can help diminish some of the signs of rosacea, and maintaining the natural bacterial balance of your skin is an important part of this. Unlike some of the typically recommended over the counter treatments which contain antibiotics, Probiotic Action™ doesn’t cause redness, dry skin, or general irritation.
Q: Why shouldn’t I just use antibiotics or benzoyl peroxide to address these issues?
A: While antibiotics are great for curing some ailments, they aren’t the best for dealing with skin issues. Antibiotics kill any bacteria that it comes in contact with. Since your skin needs to maintain a balance of bacteria, killing the good bacteria off has a negative effect on skin and could possibly exacerbate the condition.
What’s more, even if a chemical or antibiotic treatment may work initially, over time, the body will no longer react to the treatment nearly as well. Probiotic Action™ is composed of natural ingredients which your body needs and is helping to restore the body’s natural balance.
Benzoyl peroxide, and salicylic acid (another common chemical found in skin care products), are harsh chemicals. These chemicals can react very badly to people’s skin, especially when it is sensitive from an outbreak of acne, eczema, or rosacea.
Q: Are there any negative side effects to Probiotic Action™?
A: When used properly, and the application dosage amount is provided on each bottle and here on our site, there should be no adverse reactions. Probiotic Action™ only contains natural ingredient sand no harsh chemicals.
Chemicals like benzoyl peroxide have been known to cause “dryness, irritation…burning, itching, peeling, and possibly swelling.”
Q: How long does it take to see results from Probiotic Action™?
A: Everyone’s skin is different so everyone’s reaction to Probiotic Action™ is going to be different. It depends on the severity of the outbreak and other mitigating circumstances. Some of our customers who suffered from acne outbreaks reported positive results in 2-3 days of regular usage, and some in as little as 2-3 uses. If you are having a serious outbreak of acne, rosacea, or eczema or you are using prescription medications for any of those conditions, please consult with your physician.
Q: I use alcohol-based hand sanitizer and I’ve noticed my skin drying out, cracking, and bleeding. Can Probiotic Action™ help me too?
A: Yes! Alcohol dries out the skin, which causes it to crack and bleed. In addition, those alcohol-based hand sanitizers say that they kill 99.5% of bacteria, which unfortunately includes the good bacteria needed to keep skin healthy. So hand sanitizer can be problematic for people who have eczema and rosacea.
