Your skincare routine and product choices all contribute to whether your skin is irritated, inflamed, or prematurely aging on the one hand or glowing, healthy, smooth, and hydrated on the other. At the heart of The Beauty of Dirty Skin is the science that healing and nourishing our skin’s “microbiome” is critical to sustain healthy, glowing skin. There are more than one trillion bacteria in the skin, originating from approximately one thousand different species. Our antiseptic cleansing styles and obsession with antibacterial soaps and cleansers have stripped our skin of its healthy bacteria. If your skin’s healthy microbiome is disrupted by harsh cleansers and other abrasive skincare products, this discontent results in breakouts, rosacea flares, psoriasis, eczema, and even sensitive skin. In sharp contrast, when your good bugs are healthy, your skin is, in turn, healthy and radiant. That’s because these essential bugs fight infections, combat against environmental damage, boost our immune system, and keep our skin hydrated and radiant. Even better, the results are lasting. When your skin flora is restored, its health is sustainable.
Your skin’s good bugs can prevent infection, control inflammation, aid in wound healing, and keep your skin looking young. This video, all about your skin’s microbiome, will help you to understand these bugs and their role in your skin’s health!
There are more than one trillion bacteria in the skin, originating from roughly one thousand different species. They vary by body part, based on the amount of light in the area, precise pH levels, and other conditions, like climate (moist or dry) and topography (hairy or smooth). When they’re happy and harmonious, your complexion is, too. But when disrupted—by harsh cleansers or dietary missteps—their discontent can surface as breakouts, rosacea flares, psoriasis, eczema, even random bouts of sensitivity.
I can’t wait to share all of this cutting edge information with you guys because this really is the future of skincare and skin health!
