Inside Tula founder, Dr. Roshini Raj's Skincare Routine
“Probiotics are a powerful, clinically effective addition to any routine,” she tells us. That said, Dr. Raj doesn’t claim her products alone can work miracles. For true skin results, it’s about making the right lifestyle choices. “I am a big believer in approaching beauty from the inside out,” says Dr. Raj. “No skincare routine is complete without a healthy diet, regular exercise, and getting enough rest.” Does Tula’s founder practice what she preaches? We delve into the expert’s own skin routine and find out why probiotics are the one skin step we shouldn’t skip.
My own skin is testament that probiotics work
“People with all skin types (sensitive, dry, oily or acne prone) are likely to see improvements in their complexions by introducing probiotics (either topically or ingesting- ideally both!) into their wellness routine. Probiotic extracts are a true breakthrough innovation in skin care and wellness, recognized for their clinically proven ability to soothe and calm skin inflammation and balance skin. I have been studying probiotics and the gut/skin microbiome for over 20 years and there’s still so much more to learn! When it comes to topical probiotic extracts in skincare, Tula formulates with our patent pending S6 Pro Complex, a proprietary blend of prebiotics & probiotic extracts that is clinically proven to improve skin’s natural balance, strengthen the skin barrier, increase skin firmness, and protect the skin from moisture loss. Since we launched the brand in 2014, I’ve been able to see firsthand the long-term benefits of probiotic extracts in both myself and the Tula community.
A good skincare routine is essential in my job
“My current routine is a mix of our classic favorites with some of our latest best-sellers. The Tula Skincare The Cult Classic Purifying Face Cleanser, £ 10,00 is definitely my most-used Tula product! I use it morning and night and could not imagine my routine without it. As a practicing gastroenterologist, I sometimes need to wash my face several times a day so I love how it removes dirt and pore-clogging debris from my skin without stripping it of its natural oils or leaving it feeling tight and dry. I always use the cleanser morning and night, as well as the Tula Skincare 24-7 Moisture Hydrating Day & Night Cream, £ 23,00 to deeply hydrate and nourish my skin. For my nighttime routine, I typically use our Tula Skincare Beauty Sleep Overnight Repair Treatment, £ 59,00 as well as the Tula Skincare 24-7 Power Swipe Hydrating Day & Night Treatment Eye Balm, £ 33,00 . If it’s a self-care night, I love to treat myself with a hot bath and a face mask; my favorite is the Tula Skincare Claydate Detoxing & Toning Face Mask Stick, £ 31,00. One of my favorite things about Tula is that probiotic extracts are the ultimate skin superfood - you really can’t go wrong!”
Other skincare ingredients are important too
“My all-time favorite Tula product has to be our Beauty Sleep Overnight Repair Treatment. It’s packed with skin powerhouses like AHA’s, Vitamin C, and a hydrating blend of fruit extracts to leave skin looking and feeling smoother, hydrated, and more balanced. It’s one of my favorite products to recommend! For Tula, it’s about not having to choose between skincare that’s healthy and skincare that works. All Tula products are formulated with clinically proven ingredients like our patent pending S6 Pro Complex, a proprietary blend of prebiotics and probiotic extracts as well as superfoods and powerful skincare actives like ceramides, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and many more. As a practicing gastroenterologist, Tula is committed to skin health and looks to clinical studies and research to decide what’s in and what’s out of our formulas - we have very strict standards & I wouldn’t have it any other way!
My philosophy? Embrace age by living life right
“A happy and healthy body is going to radiate beauty and gut health has a very strong impact on skin health. It’s all about feeling confident and healthy, not perfect. Especially after turning 50 recently, I’m more aware of my skin than ever and the way I talk to myself. Something I love about Tula is how we encourage embracing your skin through all of life’s stages and how there’s nothing “anti” about aging.
