We also love the XeraCalm A.D Lipid Replenishing Balm, $44.99, by Avene. While it technically features a postbiotic (I-modulia), the ability of this replenishing balm to improve almost everything from severe dryness and skin prone to eczema was too good to ignore. Similarly, the Vinosource-Hydra Moisturizing Mask, $54, by Caudalie at Sephora, is another excellent pro-biotic based skin saviour.

Seeking little support from the inside? Try the Sea Buckthorn Serum by Mud Organics alongside its complementary supplement. Powered by Sea Buckthorn (an ingredient that is often supplemented to provide probiotic effects) it works best with the addition of the 30-Day ingestible powder treatment: which features a a soil based probiotic that provides vital nutrients and enzymes for optimal gut function and enhanced skin support.
