I want to bust 2 more old acne “facts” that are no longer valid! Keep a lookout for the next post in this series. We now know more about acne, so why haven’t skincare companies caught up yet?
Answer: Because they are making a killing running you in circles. So, what’s the problem?
Outdated Fact #2: Excess bacteria causes acne. False!
Again, this is purely a symptom but not the cause. Skin that is out of balance will inherently host excessive bad bacteria. Attempting to kill excess bacteria without addressing chronic dehydration and the stress that acne products are in fact causing will make this a useless battle.
So, if you are on a single mission to kill bacteria on your skin as the answer…you are barking up the wrong tree. Excess bacteria will just give up spontaneously and die within days or several weeks of giving our skin hydration, topical dermal nutrients, and restoring our skin’s barrier. Change the climate of your skin and watch the scratchy, redness dissapear caused by bad bacteria.
Acne solution: If you find out how to provide the right climate changing ingredients for your skin and its natural barrier, you will no longer need to worry about excess bacteria. NOT ONE BIT.
