A. Using Bacteria to Cure Acne
The human microbiome (the unique mix of microorganisms and bacteria that live naturally in the body and skin) is a new destination for the beauty industry. Nerd skin care uses bacteria to fight acne. “Our science uses its own biology to help your skin think differently, act differently and take care of itself,” says the United States skin care brand on its website.
Traditional acne control formulas kill most bacteria on the skin. However, Nerd’s product differentiates between the “good” and healthy bacteria that naturally develop on the skin and the “bad” bacteria that accumulate in the environment. Carbon-based molecules stimulate these good bacteria, epidermidis, to produce short-chain fatty acids that suppress the growth of bad bacteria that can cause redness, inflammation and acne. By balancing the “facial flora”, the consumer receives a more natural treatment, less aggressive and adapted to the needs of his skin.
Although acne usually occurs in teenagers, it increases in adults. According to Dr. Stefanie Williams, Medical Director of Eudelo (European Dermatology London), 92 private dermatology clinics have seen a 200% increase in the number of adults seeking specialized acne treatments in the past year.
B. Treating Acne with Probiotic Skin Care
Probiotics are revolutionizing skin care! Topical probiotics can be beneficial for several skin conditions, including probiotic solutions for acne. We’ll show you what they do and how probiotics for acne can help with rashes and inflammation.
1. What are probiotics?
Probiotics are beneficial microorganisms that occur naturally in our body. They are often called “good bacteria”. You have probably heard of probiotics in terms of gut health, but did you know that trillions of microorganisms live on your skin too? They are the smallest defenders of your skin and without them we would literally not be able to function!
Collectively, these organisms are known as the skin microbiome, which is composed of a delicate and diverse balance between good and bad bacteria. The skin microbiome is part of the skin barrier.
2. A balanced microbiome = healthier skin
A well-functioning, balanced microbiome is essential for healthy skin and a strong barrier. The skin can defend itself from external invaders, stay hydrated, clean and calm.
Too many bad bacteria = inflammation and compromised skin barrier
Many things can unbalance the skin’s microbiome and cause an increase in harmful bacteria. Exposure to the sun, pollutants, diet, medications and irritating ingredients for skin care, to name a few. An unbalanced microbiome can cause inflammation and compromise the skin’s barrier, causing problems such as acne, rosacea, eczema, excessive dryness and skin sensitivity.
3. Topical use of probiotics in skin care
Research has shown that a number of inflammatory skin conditions, including acne, can be treated by topically inserting beneficial bacteria (probiotics) into the skin’s microbiome with skin care products.
This, in turn, rebalances the microbiome and creates an ideal environment for skin health to thrive and quickly stimulates cell renewal to repair the barrier. Extensive tests on keratinocyte monolayer scratches (single cell scratches) have shown that esmi Lacticaseibacillus.rhamnosus lysate is ideal for topical application to stimulate rapid skin cell renewal and accelerate wound healing.
4. What do probiotics in skin care do for acne?
Acne is caused by an influx of bacteria known as p Acnes Excess oil in the skin leads to clogged pores, which are the ideal environment for these bacteria to develop and spread. This, in turn, leads to rashes, inflammation and swelling. Using skin care products for acne probiotics can help treat acne in two ways. Firstly, to control the spread of the acne bacteria (to clean up the existing rashes) and, secondly, to regulate the production of oil to minimize the recurrence of the rashes.
5. Control the spread of bacteria
Adding beneficial bacteria to the skin with topical probiotics can help strengthen the skin’s beneficial microflora and reduce acne bacteria.
6. Regulate oil production
Many skin products, especially those related to acne, completely remove oil from the skin. This causes the skin to produce more oil, which causes more rashes. The peeling of the skin also breaks the skin barrier (including the skin microbiome), leading to an increase in harmful bacteria and sensitivity. The use of probiotic acne skin care products can help create the ideal environment to heal a compromised skin barrier, rebalance oil and reduce sensitivity.
7. Probiotic skin problems and what probiotics do in skin care
Esmi Probiotic Skin Mylck is the world’s first in probiotic skin care. The probiotic-rich formulation is a very light moisturizing lotion that simply melts on the skin. It can help to heal compromised and acne-prone skin. Skin Mylck contains 100% probiotic lysate made in Australia to create an ideal environment for vulnerable and acne-prone skin to repair a damaged skin barrier and kill pathogens (bad bacteria) to strengthen the skin’s beneficial microflora.

C. 10 Skin Care Habits That Can Worsen Acne
Are you treating your acne faithfully, but are you still seeing new rashes? Your skin care routine may be to blame. Here are 10 skin care habits that can make acne worse and tips from dermatologists to help you change those habits.
1. Try a new acne treatment every week.
This approach can irritate the skin, which can cause skin rashes.
What to do instead: Give acne treatment time to work. You want to use a product for 6 to 8 weeks. It takes a long time for something to improve. If you don’t see any improvement by then, try another product. Complete cleaning usually takes 3 to 4 months.
2. Apply acne medication only to blemishes.
It makes sense to treat what you see, but this approach will not prevent further outbreaks.
What to do instead: To avoid new blemishes, spread a thin layer of the acne medication evenly over acne-prone skin. For example, if you are prone to rashes on your forehead, nose, and chin, you should apply acne treatment evenly to all of these areas of your face.
3. Use makeup, skin and hair products that can cause acne.
Some makeup, along with many skin and hair products, contains oils or other ingredients that can cause acne. If you continue to use them, you may still encounter errors.
What to do instead: Use only makeup, sunscreen, skin and hair products that are labeled “non-comedogenic” or “do not clog pores”. These products do not cause outbreaks in most people.
4. Share makeup, makeup brushes, or makeup applicators.
Even if you only use non-comedogenic products, sharing your makeup can lead to mistakes. Acne is not contagious, but if you share makeup, makeup brushes, or applicators, the acne-causing bacteria, oil, and dead skin cells of others may appear in your makeup. By using this makeup, you can transfer bacteria, oil and dead skin cells to your skin. This can clog your pores and cause skin rashes.
What to do instead: Make sure you are the only person using makeup, brushes and makeup applicators.
5. Sleep in make-up.
Even non-comedogenic makeup can cause acne if you sleep with it.
What to do instead: Remove your makeup before going to bed. No exceptions. If you are too tired to wash your face, use a make-up remover towel. Just make sure it is a non-comedogenic towel.
6. Wash your face all day.
Washing your face several times a day can further irritate your skin and cause new rashes.
What to do instead: Wash your face twice a day – on waking up and before going to bed. You will also want to wash your face after finishing an activity that makes you sweat.
7. Dry your skin.
Skin with acne is oily, so it can be tempting to use astringent and acne treatments until your face is dry to the touch. No. Dry skin is irritated skin. Each time you irritate your skin, you are at increased risk of acne.
What to do instead: Use acne treatments as directed. If you feel your skin feels dry to the touch, apply a moisturizer for acne-prone skin. You want to apply the moisturizer twice a day after washing your face. You should also avoid using astringents, alcohol and anything else that can dry out your skin.
8. Rub your skin clean.
To get rid of acne, you may be tempted to rub your skin. No. Rubbing can irritate the skin and cause acne.
What to do instead: Be gentle when washing your face and other acne skins. You want to use a neutral, non-comedogenic detergent. Apply the cleaner lightly with your fingertips in a circular motion. Rinse gently with warm water using your fingers only. Then dry your skin with a clean towel.
9. Rub sweat from your skin while you exercise.
Rubbing sweat hard with a towel can irritate the skin and cause skin rashes.
What to do instead: During exercise, use a clean towel to gently wipe sweat from your skin.
10. Pop or squeeze breakouts.
When you have burst or squeezed your acne, you are probably pushing some of what’s inside (like pus, dead skin cells or bacteria) deeper into your skin. When this happens, you increase the inflammation. This can cause more noticeable acne and, at times, scarring and pain.
What to do instead: Resist the urge to pop or squeeze acne. You want to treat your acne with acne medication. If you have deep or painful acne, a visit to a dermatologist is necessary to get rid of acne.
11. When should I see a dermatologist?
Many people can control their acne by following these skin care tips and using an acne treatment that can be purchased without a prescription. If you continue to see acne after giving these tips a chance to work, a dermatologist can help you. Some people need prescription treatment for acne.
