The Probiotic For the Skin
The Microbime System of the Skin.
The term skin flora (also commonly referred to as skin microbiome) refers to the microorganisms which reside on the skin; typically, human skin.
Many of them are bacteria of which there are around 1000 species upon human skin ,most are found in the superficial layers of the epidermis and the upper parts of the hair follicles.
Skin flora is usually non-pathogenic, and either commensal (are not harmful to their host) or mutualistic (offer a benefit). The benefits bacteria can offer include preventing transient pathogenic organisms from colonizing the skin surface, either by competing for nutrients, secreting chemicals against them, or stimulating the skin’s immune system.
It’s well documented that bacteria play an important role skin’s overall health. Research has shown that good bacteria in and on our body could have a positive impact on skin disorders such as acne rosacea, reactive skins, eczema as well as aging. Microbes have an important role to play when it comes to inflammatory skin diseases. Healthy bacteria not only keep harmful bacteria in check, but also help the skin’s immune system function optimally.
There are many things we do every day that upset the microbial balance in the skin
• over treating the skin
• over cleansing
• daily application of antibacterial substances has led to the adaptive immune system failing
We do live in an “over cleansing” world, the need for clean has now been shown to upset this flora system.
A Study by Richard L. Gallo, MD, PhD, professor of medicine of Dermatology and the Dermatology explains how the lack of the bacteria staphylococci on the epidermis can lead to over inflammatory response on the skin.
Dermaviduals creates the perfect flora system of the skin all the microbes that live on the skin have a happy home and all the microbes that should not be on the skin don’t hang around as it is not a welcome environment for them
This Study has lead us to our new concept called the Dermaviduals Detox.
By using the Dermaviduals Detox you are simply allowing the skin to rebuild its flora system and strengthen the Stratum Corneum. This will result in less inflamed skin that is less susceptible to acne, rosacea, sensitivity and signs of aging. Their skin will look 100% better.
Within 6-8 weeks your skin will look clearer softer and brighter
We all know what is it to detox the body, the purpose is to eat less refined foods, alcohol, caffeine and sugar as a build-up of these foods in our digestive system cause inflammation that will make us sluggish can lead to ill health. Once you have omitted these foods your gut will work as it is meant to you will have more energy, you look and feel better.
The skin is no different as the products we often buy are not always what we think and the ingredients in them can upset the flora system of the skin. Over time this can show in the skin, especially if you suffer from skin complaints such as rosacea, sensitivity, acne and premature ageing.
It is not just topical products that can upset the flora system, but also things like exposure to air conditioning, central heating, swimming pools and flying. Prescription drugs, especially antibiotics and Roacutane, can continue to upset the flora system for years after you take the drugs.
Like any detox system you will have to stop using the products you have at home. Follow our advice for 6-8 weeks.
What to expect;
It is possible in the first 10 days the skin may become dry or a little red. If you are spotty some new spots may appear, this is all normal as we are detoxing. If it is winter or the skin becomes very dry so you may need to add some OM Ointment.
