Do you suffer from acne, or want to improve the health and glow of your skin? Then using a probiotic spray is definitely for you! What’s even better is that you can make a DIY probiotic spray at home for cheap. Clear and beautiful skin for everyone!
What Are Probiotics?
According to studies done, probiotics can be used internally and in cosmetic products to treat skin diseases including eczema, atopic dermatitis, acne, and allergic inflammation or in skin hypersensitivity, UV-induced skin damage, wound protection.
In the past, I have used the Marie Veronique Pre + Probiotic Mist. It did wonders for my small but frequent breakouts I experienced.
My skin never looked better than when I incorporated a probiotic face wash, and the spray into my morning routine.
After following this routine, any acne breakouts I had were pretty much gone, and I looked hydrated and even-toned.
The only problem is that this Marie Veronique probiotic spray is around $40 ish dollars, and lasts you maybe a month or so. I was lucky to try this out, but over the long run, I definitely couldn’t spend that money on one beauty product every month.
(If you can afford to splurge on it every once in a while though, I highly HIGHLY recommend it and all other products from Marie Veronique!)
So, I wondered what to do instead. Then I realized, I could make my own spray!

DIY Probiotic Spray
To recreate the benefits I saw from using the other probiotic spray, I began to do some research!
There are lots of different ways to make a DIY spray, but I found there is one specific option that is cheap, easy, and effective.
Creating your own DIY probiotic spray from apple cider vinegar.
Why To Choose Apple Cider Vinegar For Your Probiotic Spray
Many people are probably familiar with apple cider vinegar. One of the best and well-known brands is Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar and for good reason. It is organic, unfiltered, raw, and has “the mother”. This is the strand-like materials in the vinegar that contain enzymes, proteins, and good bacteria. Apple cider vinegar also has a pH of 2-3, making it acidic.
These facts are important for our skin because:
Topical Probiotics For Skin Are Beneficial
The acetic acid (vinegar in apple cider vinegar) is great at killing pathogens, (bad bacteria). This is great if you have acne, which is caused by p. acnes the acne bacteria!
Since it is a fermented food, it does have good bacteria. Even though the vinegar can kill other bad bacteria, it can also add on good bacteria that can be beneficial to your skin. This works as a probiotic does, and helps replenish the skin’s natural microbiome with the good stuff.
Since it has a mildly acidic pH, it can rebalance the surface of the skin. Typically, we use a lot of alkaline (higher pH) products on our face which our skin doesn’t like. If the skin is exposed to alkaline products, the skin barrier can become compromised, leading to dryness and irritation. Misting your face with this DIY probiotic spray will bring the pH of the skin back to the pH it prefers.
What You’ll Need
To easily make your own DIY Probiotic Spray for skin you’ll need:
Glass is best especially when you are putting vinegar in it!
As mentioned above, use Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar!
Or distilled water from the store.
Add 1-2 tsp to about 1/4 cup filtered water in the glass bottle, then shake it up to mix! Then mist your face at an arms length after cleansing in the morning. Be sure to add moisturizer after!
Can You Really Put Probiotics On Your Skin?
You want to be sure that the apple cider vinegar is very diluted. Even though it has many great properties that are beneficial to the skin, NEVER apply it directly, or use it full strength. This could be harmful to your skin and even cause burns.
The same goes for using lemon, or any other type of kitchen inegrediet on your face. It’s probably not the best idea to apply it directly.
When To See Results
Expect to see results from using this spray in a week or so! You’ll find that this probiotic spray will give your skin a lovely glow, and then clear up breakouts pretty fast.
I hope you enjoyed learning how you can get clear, beautiful skin at home! This DIY probiotic spray is all-natural and an effective tool to have in your skincare routine. Anyone can achieve this, and everyone deserves clear skin.
