Why does acne still exist?
You may already know that acne is linked to the bacterium Propionibacterium acnes, which nestles in the dark, oily, oxygen-deprived crannies of our pores. Acne is also linked to inflammation, overgrowth of the upper skin layer, excess sebum, and depression. Because the root of the problem has long seemed to be a bacterium, antibiotics have been the go-to treatment. Dermatologists are also working on developing something called “antimicrobial peptides” to kill the bacteria — anticipating the day that the bacteria outgrow our current antibiotics, and they fail us.
Still, as millions of people who have used antibiotics in failed attempts know, killing the bacteria doesn’t work for everyone. A study earlier this year found that severity of acne does not necessarily correlate with the amount of P. acnes on the skin. It also turns out there are different strains of the bacterium, some of which may cause the more severe cases. It might be too early to say that there are distinct “good” and “bad” strains of the acne bacteria, but it does appear that killing all of them might not be the best plan.**
How Do Probiotic Action React With The Skin?
Probiotic Action leaves a layer of healthy bacteria on the epidermis reducing the
P. Acne bacteria through competitive exclusion process. Moreover, the facial
skin pores are reduced in size and facial skin feels tighter. The regular use
reduces skin blemishes, and open sores heal quickly. Probiotic Action’s active
probiotics don’t just cover up problems, they work to reverse the conditions that
cause your skin to be irritated, returning your skin to a soft, and healthy state.
Probiotic Action skin products don’t kill the P. Acne bacteria, the beneficial,
healthy bacteria eat the excess skin and toxins that the P-acne need in order to
thrive. They starve the P-acnes, then eat their sorry dead carcasses too! *
