Kombucha for Healthy Skin?


Kombucha for healthy skin? Really? I started brewing kombucha again and want to sell it at the farmer's market with the skin care products. Then I thought about our banner "Heavenly Bodies Organic Skin Care." Well, I figured if I could find out that kombucha was good for the skin it wouldn't be a problem to incorporate into the Heavenly Bodies line. You will never believe what I uncovered.

Aids With Acne


I came across multiple bloggers who stated that their acne cleared up while drinking kombucha on a daily basis. It makes sense considering that our skin is one way the body detoxes and lets us know that there is something wrong. What is it? The gut bacteria is off, kombucha is a probiotic which means it aids in replenishing our good gut bacteria which for most of needs to tended to and we usually neglect.

Benefits of Kombucha Externally 


Using kombucha externally on the skin also has benefits. Just put aside some unflavored kombucha and let it really ferment about 14 days. You can put right on to your face as a toner it has been shown to aid with the following. You can also click here for a recipe to create a toner with kombucha. 
  • Reduce redness
  • Reduce wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduce dry skin
  • Reduce uneven skin tone
  • Reduce pores
  • Reduce dark circles 
  • Reduce puffiness around the eyes
  • Reduce varicose veins 
  • Increase collagen 
  • Increase oxygen
  • Increase protein production
  • Increase cell regeneration

Scoby Facial Mask


You know all those SCOBYs that come with brewing your own kombucha? Well, they are great to use as a face mask, those who have used it state softer, glowing skin. It is believed that the SCOBY aids in the circulation of the skin which aids in regenerating skin cells. The SCOBY also is said to act like a natural acid pull due to its PH and aids in shedding dead skin cells. Some who used this mask stated that they were concerned how they would smell afterwards, but said it absorbed into their skin so fast there was no negative smell afterward.

Warning: Some have reported that there was redness after using the SCOBY facial mask, but stated it did not last long.

SCOBY Band Aids


Sounds kind of funny to use a SCOBY which is bacteria and yeast as a band aid doesn't it? The fact is that the PH aids to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. As mentioned above it aids in increased skin cell regeneration along with tissue. I found various testimonies stating they used a piece of a SCOBY on a wound, cut, burn, or even an insect bite. For burns, cuts, and wounds cut off a piece of the SCOBY the size of the wound and put some gauze over it with tape to hold it in place. 

Warning: Stinging has been reported.

Storing SCOBYs


From everything I read seems SCOBYs used for these purposes can be kept. Just be sure to keep them in a separate jar and label it.
