The number of the day is 10 billion! So many more bacteria live on our skin than there are humans on this planet. Should that bother us we will take a closer look.n.
Healthy skin is full of good bacteriaen
The good news: It is absolutely correct and important that we share our skin with so many bacteria. We even depend on them! Basically, bacteria live very harmoniously with us and create a balance on our skin: They are an essential part of our own ecosystem, the skin flora.
The activity of bacteria, but also their metabolic products, are vital for our skin. Their tasks include regulating the naturally acidic pH value of the skin, bringing the skin's microflora into balance and producing antibacterial substances. They also optimize the connections between the skin cells so that our own skin barrier is strengthened.
The "bad" bacteria are also part of it
The composition of the different bacteria differs from person to person and depends on age, gender, genetic predisposition and living conditions. The largest common denominator are the strains of Actinobacteria, Firmicutes, Proteobacteria, Bacteroidetes and Cyanobacteria. The most common types of bacteria are Propionibacterium acnes, of which individual strains are associated with the formation of acne, Staphylococcus epidermis and Corynebacterium.m.
But the skin region also has an influence on which types of bacteria it colonizes. The reason is that the skin areas are moist, oily or sebum differently. This leads to different survival conditions for bacteria.n.
In a healthy skin environment, there are good bacteria that are useful for us. Bacteria that can cause infections or diseases are also included in a limited number, but the colonization of other bacteria controls them and keeps them in check. So they form a protective shield against unwanted bacteria.n.
How do I care for my bacteria?
Because bacteria are so important for our skin, we should disturb them as little as possible and disturb the skin flora. This is also the reason why more and more people are trying to stop showering every day and only use mild detergents. Because hot water alone rinses bacteria from our skin. And when our skin is less densely populated by bacteria, the more unhealthy and defenseless it is.
In this context, theGentle Facial Cleanser As a suitable facial cleanser and effective against pimples and oily skin: On the one hand, it is low in surfactants and relies on organic care for male skin with kaolin sludge, activated carbon and red algae.
Because bacteria do not have a good chance in dry skin regions, you should contribute to a blooming skin flora with a good day cream.In theHydra Defense Cream we rely on the advice of our pharmacologist and toxicologist Prof. Dr. Michael Schirner also uses blueberry and raspberry seed oils: The two substances have been shown to act on bacteria and viruses in such a way that they are essential to protect the skinagainst unwanted infections, they support the antibacterial protective barrier and thus prevent incorrect colonization of the skin by the wrong bacteria and in our opinionh the best anti-wrinkle cream!
Be good to your skin flora and #staysober!!
