As Professional Skin Therapists, also known as Estheticians and provide results like those of Magicians! We also share sentiments when it comes to our universal Nemesis, Propionibacterium acnes better known by its thug name P. Acnes. I say thug because when P . Acnes comes around, it shows up and shows out causing quite a ruckus most times.

So we can drop it in the pile of Bad and Ugly Bacteria! We educate our clients each day about how to care for their skin and how to avoid negative altercations with P. Acnes. But did you know that there’s a bright side to bacteria? Yes indeed, there are bacteria that are actually beneficial to promoting good gut health and even a healthy skin biome.

Probiotic strains such as Lactobacillus and Alpha-Glucan Oligosaccharide for instance step on the skin care scene to put in some major work. These bacteria strains can significantly inhibit the reproduction of harmful bacteria, regulate the skin microbiota, prevent TEWL (transepidermal water loss) by making atmospheric moisture available for the skin, and correct the imbalance of oil secretion and pH caused by abnormal skin microbiota.

It’s true, these probiotic strains work hard to enhance the skin’s overall immune function. There are many brands that are adding probiotic powers to their skin and body care products. The Body CLEANSE by CaribbeanCandy® uses probiotics to supercharge their body wash making skin cleansing in your body treatment protocols gentle and effective without harsh sulfates and parabens.
