The human microbiome, is a community of a wide variety of bacteria, archaea, fungi and viruses that populate the inside and the outside of our body. This includes our skin. New knowledge about the critical role the skin microbiome plays regarding our skin and overall health is rapidly exciting the field of skincare.
Not all microorganisms are bad, it turns out, but we better know the good from the bad! So like any ecosystem in nature, a balance of both maintains ‘law & order’ and a healthy environment. For example, many treatments for acne go all out to eradicate the p. acnes bacteria. That’s a big mistake and leads to negative impacts on the skin being treated. Why? Well, p. acnes has variants, some are pathogenic (bad for health basically) but some are important for good skin health by preventing opportunistic pathogenic microorganisms from colonizing the skin. Your gut and your skin are environments, believe it or not. Think, deserts, amazon jungle, marshland etc. But all on a tiny scale.
Look closer – it’s a jungle out there!
