Most dermatologists and gastroenterologists will agree there is a connection between gut health and skin health. But, not everyone needs a probiotic supplement—doctors will recommend them to treat many GI issues, but not typically just for general health. However, some supplements are now being developed with specific strains of bacteria that have proven skin-care benefits. And then there are probiotic skin-care products in general (most of which actually contain prebiotics or postbiotics instead; more on that here) that, when combined with other powerful actives, can balance and rejuvenate stressed skin.

To cut through the clutter and confusion, we’ve named 10 of our favorite products that deliver on their claims so you can end your search and spend time on more important things, like watching The Bachelor.
