I want to bust 2 more old acne “facts” that are no longer valid! Does excess bacteria cause acne? NO!!! 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Outdated Fact #2: Excess bacteria causes acne.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. Oily skin caused by dehydration is the likely culprit.

Skin that is raw , itchy, and irritated from acne products and lacking from an intact natural barrier will indeed become problematic in many ways including the overgrowth of bad topical bacteria. The very products that are supposed to be killing bacteria is helping it thrive instead.

So, if you are on a single mission to kill bacteria on your skin as the answer…you are barking up the wrong tree. The truth is that 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. By changing the climate of your skin through right skincare products your skin will naturally host beneficial bacteria as the harmful bacteria is overrun.

There is a more effective way to win the war on bacteria and acne for that matter. If you find out how to provide medi-holistic skincare products for your skin,  you will never need to waste one second of your time worryimg over bacteria. NOT ONE BIT.
