If you’re anything like me, you’ll know that probiotics in skincare is nothing new but esmi’s Probiotic Skin Mylck is. This silky moisturising lotion works to assist with healing and strengthening hyper sensitive skin, and can also boast being formulated with 100% Australian made probiotics.
To learn more about this product I’ve been using for a little over a month now, I asked Meg Lovett, skin consultant at esmi Skin Minerals to share why this is a product you need to learn more about!

Meg, why are we now seeing probiotics in skincare products, and are these different to those found in the food/drinks we consume? “Our skin needs good bacteria to survive, and the abundance of bad bacteria can lead to skin issues such as redness, sensitivity or irritated/reactive skin. As such, applying probiotics topically is an excellent and vital part of your routine to ensure good bacteria takes over, and your barrier functions at optimal health!”
A strong and functioning barrier is essential for skin health. Without it we can be exposed to UV and free radical damage (premature ageing) which can increase the risk of infection, and sensitive/reactive skin.
When should this product be used, and where in your skincare routine? “Our Skin Mylck Probiotics are lightweight lotions used as your moisturiser, they can be applied after cleansing or layered with water based serums. Cleanse, apply serums, following with a pea size Skin Mylck– both AM & PM. *Never forgetting SPF in your morning routine! If your skin is quite dry/impaired and you do feel as though you need a little extra nourishment, you can also follow with a drop or two of your favourite Oil Based Skin Treat/moisturiser.”
“Our Skin Mylcks contain Lysates which are a concentrated dose of probiotic function. They differ slightly to the strains which are ingested via oral powders, but nonetheless, work in perfect synergy with the skin when applied topically – and they don’t have to be refrigerated which is an extra bonus!“
Which skin types will benefit from this product and new range of products? “Any skin type can benefit from probiotics. Our Probiotic Skin Mylcks have been formulated specially for sensitive/reactive skin types, as well as acne, rosacea, dermatitis/eczema and help strengthen, repair and restore skin, promoting a healthy barrier function. They are also ideal for those who have damaged their skin from the overuse of active or harsh ingredients – most of us have been guilty of this, at one time or another! Probiotics will help the skin recover faster, increasing the skin’s good bacteria – eliminating the bad, allowing it to thrive and flourish.”
