Here’s an unexpected way to get rid of wrinkles. . . .

A double-blind study compared a placebo to the probiotic Lactobacillus plantarum HY7714 in 110 women who had dry skin and wrinkles. The women were all between the ages of 41 and 59. The dose of the probiotic was 10 billion colony-forming units a day, and the study lasted for 12 weeks.

At the end of 12 weeks, the women who got the probiotic supplement had significantly greater skin hydration in the face and hands, and they lost less water through the skin on the face and forearms than the women who took the placebo. They also had significant reduction in wrinkle depth, enhanced skin gloss and improved skin elasticity. Skin elasticity improved by a full 21.73%.

This study suggests that taking probiotics provides anti-aging, anti-wrinkle benefits for your skin.
