Bacteria outnumber our cells 10 to 1. We’re 10% human and 90% bacteria. So it makes sense to keep these microbes that make us up; happy and balanced. This goes for your surface bacteria as well as the bacteria on the inside.

If the skins surface bacteria are not happy, you’ll be suffering with acne, eczema, rosacea, dermatitis, psoriasis and dull rough skin.

So how do we make the skin’s surface a happy balanced environment for the microbiome to live on?

By producing fatty acids that form the protection layer for the roof of our skin. Like a kind of roof protector.

Fatty acids are made up of Omegas 3 and 6. The food sources of these are:

  • Oily fish
  • Walnuts
  • Chia Seeds
  • Avocados
  • Eggs
  • Red meat (not over cooked)
  • Olive Oil
  • Almonds

The topical ingredients for good overall skin health are:

  • Vitamins
  • Triglycerides
  • Ceremides
  • Lecithin
  • Fatty Acids

By letting the good bacteria live healthily and happily, you’re enabling them to protect your largest and most exposed organ, your skin.

  • The good bacteria will be able to fight off bad bacteria.
  • They won’t allow pollutants to wreak havoc by oxidising your skin.
  • The pathogens that you come into contact every day won’t be able to get past the ‘good bacteria army’
  • And you’re natural UV protection is enhanced. Lord knows we all need that!

Plus, the fantastic protection layer will also keep the good stuff in like water. This will naturally hydrate your skin and plump out those fine lines and wrinkles. Hoorah!

This is 9 weeks between pictures and after 3 skinfocus skin treatments.

Strengthening to the eye area. Crows feet and sagging skin under eye has almost gone. Texture and pigmentation have been improved.

Home care was; a milk cleanser, lipid corrective tonic, anti-inflammatory serum, ceramide moisturiser, ceremide night balm and SPF 30.

To give your skin a fighting chance to correct any of the skin concerns you may have, feed it the essential fatty acids from both sides. From the inside-out via your diet and the outside-in via your skin care.

Next time, we’ll be talking about creating a good environment for your live skin cells.
