How do I incorporate sunscreen into my Laflore Probiotic regime?

How does the science behind the LaFlore Probiotic products help with acne?
The Laflore Probiotic line was created to improve the health of your skin on a cellular level. Diminished acne, happens to be an amazing benefit of the products synergistically nourishing and enhancing the health of your skin. “The mechanism of action that we feel is happening on the skin is that once you apply the LaFlore Probiotic products, especially the probiotic serum at night, the good flora/good bacteria will fight the bad bacteria i.e. P. acnes (Propionibacterium acnes) and other bacteria and fungi. The skin will correct itself and all of the redness and P. acnes will be gone.
My skin seems too shiny . Why and what should I do?
LaFlore Probiotic Moisturizer has brighteners for an immediate glow, but you can cut the shine by finishing with an application of a small amount of probiotic serum on top. It is also fine to use a dust of powder over the moisturizer if you prefer to lessen the brightening effect.
As we age, our cellular turnover is less..what about exfoliation?
It is true, our cell turnover is much less than what we should settle for as we age. As our serum contains the probiotics specifically chosen for this exact function…to help cells turn over much more quickly, gently, and more naturally. Via clinical studies, there is data showing this process and is the reason we selected specific cocktails of the probiotics. The probiotics in the serum will help cell turnover as you sleep and as far as exfoliation, once you improve the cell turnover, the exfoliation process is also being boosted. The ingredients in our serum, such as our probiotic cocktail, help shed and exfoliate…the LaFlore probiotic cleanser is also a big part of the exfoliation process in very gentle ways. Bromelain is an enzyme that helps with exfoliation, a pineapple extract that is also in the cleanser, so the exfoliation process is addressed in two products. Gently in the serum and in the enzyme based in our cleanser. Also, perilla seed oil is a wonderful similar booster in the cell exfoliation because it increases the blood flow once you increase the blood flow it enhances the cell production and exfoliation process.
Why doesn’t the LaFlore Probiotic Cleanser have a distinctive ‘signature scent?
The ingredients were selected so the cleanser would not be too strong and overpowering to the skin, yet a gentle cleanse for our face. These essential oils are potent enough to do their job and still be invigorating. The entire line is made specifically for the sensitive skin audience and yet, used in different ways, so it can be used by everyone, all skin types. This product was purposely created to obtain results and we chose not to add perfumes, but essential oils for more therapeutic purposes. Rather than perfumes and fragrances, the LaFlore distinction is our 3 step active-probiotic skin care line which is organic natural and our products are gentle, yet very effective. We are different because LaFlore chose to provide therapeutic results in skin health and not scent oriented. Our clients will become addicted to the performance of the product and not to the scent.
- lemongrass in the cleanser is chosen for it’s energizing and cleansing properties.
- It purifies and tones skin as well.
- The spearmint essential oil is chosen because it provides the refreshing aroma that clears the mind and uplifts the mood.
- Perrila seed oil- known as a Japanese mint. It is a wonderful protectant and has potent anti-inflammatory properties. It help with circulation thus revitalized the skin
- Most of the scent in this formula come from the ingredient called Bisabolo which is a main component if the chamomile flowers.
- This ingredient is known for its numerous properties and among the anti-inflammatory, moisturization, healing and soothing properties, it has also proven to help protect our skin against the environmental stress such as UV – naturally …
- Thus the reason we chose this ingredient in the moisturizer as the moisturizer is meant to be used during the day to help protect our skin.
- Another ingredient that contributes to the scent in the moisturizer is Bergamot oil.
- Bergamot oil is specifically added to the moisturizer for its calming aromatherapy. This oil has been used to help reduce feeling of stress and as our days are usually filled with stress we chose this oil because of its ability to uplift and calm which makes it ideal for anxious and sad feelings…. we never know what our day is going to be like so bring a moisturizer with you and use it to help you feel better 🙂 and protected throughout the day. It could be your best friend:-)
- The serum aroma comes from various oils mainly Sea Buckthorn oil.
- This nourishing oil is loaded with Omega 3-6-7-9.
- It is the only oil that contains a rare omega 7. It has very high levels of vitamin A E Beta carotene, vitamin K and D and F… it has strong anti-oxidant properties. It is a nutritional bombshell loaded with bioactive nutrients that your skin needs so that can nourish itself while you sleep…. thus the reason it’s in the serum as serum is to be applied at night…
- The scent also comes from other oils that have calming soothing properties so your skin can rest…
LaFlore is shifting the way people look at skin care and their skin care regime. Did you know that thicker does not mean more efficacious if it is laying on top of the skin and not penetrating each cell?
FYI: The LaFlore Probiotic serum was formulated to glide evenly and easily across the skin as it delivers the live-active probiotics evenly across the face, neck and décolletage. Most serums are water based, not as hydrating and there is evaporation. Several ingredients were incorporated into our serum, plus the live-active probiotics, which is the reason why we named it, Probiotic Serum Concentrate. The LaFlore moisturizer is similar in that we do not want a heavy, thick cushion but have the consistency be absorbed to support the hydration of the skin cells. In time, the LaFlore Probiotic line will enhance your skin’s nourishment and at the cellular level, each cell will begin to produce cell hydration on it’s own.
Active Probiotics vs Probiotics
Our skin has good bacteria that is ‘live’ and already there, called human microbiome and we experience constant challenges in our gut and on our skin with the good vs the bad bacteria. So when you bring active cultures to your already good bacteria, you are reinforcing your skin and boosting the good flora. LaFlore active cultures are brought to the skin to nourish and build your skin’s immunity, to calm and ultimately diminish the bad bacterias. Building and strengthening the skin with healthy skin flora, will help protect the skin from environmental elements such as yeast, mold, staph, mrsa, ecoli etc. Our skin protects us from the elements every second of the day.
LaFlore stands out because LaFlore is actually one of the very few, if not the only, that has ‘active cultures’ dormant within serum (patent technology) these cultures become live once they are introduced into the oxygen, meaning once we apply it on our skin…this ignites our skin to counter any other unwanted bacteria. LaFlore is an opportunity to replenish the good flora to the skin and allow your skin to create it’s own good flora. Healthy skin is achieved.

My skin is already oily…why do the LaFlore products have oils listed in the ingredients?
The selected oils contribute to healthy hydration for optimal skin nourishment. Our skin needs good oils and when the skin does not receive oils, it produces more oil and tries to lube itself. LaFlore Probiotics introduces good oils, vitamins and nutrients for healthy skin function. Your skin will work with the natural, ‘clean’ ingredients and your skin will not have a need to produce more oils.
May I use self tanners on my face while using LaFlore?

I have always gotten facials over the last 10 years every 4 months – is this still necessary?
When you use the LaFlore Probiotic 3 step program with the serum, cleanser, and moisturizer, it is like having a facial every day, yet in very natural, gentle ways. There is no need to stop having facials but you may want to experience LaFlore for a month or two and see if you still find them necessary or need them as frequently. It is all about stimulating the skin, creating more cells, more elastin, more fibroblast reaction, and the more you can create an environment where the cells can multiply, increasing elastin, you will look younger and have a healthier skin. This is LaFlore Probiotics!
