What are skin beautifying bacteria, and how do they help maintain skin beauty?

Skin beautifying bacteria explained

It is said that more than 1,000 types of bacteria reside on our skin, and these are referred to as indigenous bacterial flora.

Indigenous bacterial flora on the skin are broadly classified into:

Good bacteria (typical example: staphylococcus epidermidis)

Bad bacteria (typical example: staphylococcus aureus)

Opportunistic pathogens (typical example: propionibacterium acnes)

In particular, staphylococcus epidermidis is essential to good skin, and is often referred to as a "beautifying bacteria."

How skin beautifying bacteria work

1. Anti-inflammatory effect

Skin with properly functioning beautifying bacteria maintains its natural moisture and has an improved barrier function.
They also suppress the action of bad bacteria that cause inflammation associated with rough skin and itchiness, and help keep the skin healthy.

2. Creates a source of moisture

Skin beautifying bacteria digest perspiration and sebum on the skin and break it down into fatty acids and glycerin.
Glycerin has moisturizing properties and is essential for keeping the skin moisturized and healthy.
This prevents moisture from evaporating from the stratum corneum, leading to more moist skin that is less prone to dryness.
In addition, fatty acids help keep the skin healthy and in a mildly acidic state.

3. Antimicrobial effect

These bacteria support the production of antimicrobial peptides, which suppress the growth of bacteria that cause rough skin and atopic dermatitis.

Increasing skin beautifying bacteria to enhance your skin condition is essential

Human skin is in an ideal state when it moisturizes itself through a balance between bad bacteria and skin beautifying bacteria.
If the skin balance is disturbed due to aging or damage, and the number of bad bacteria increases, the skin's ability to maintain its moisture weakens, which causes dryness and rough skin.
In recent years, findings have shown that people with atopic dermatitis have an imbalanced skin flora.
In order to maintain healthy natural skin, it is very important to balance this skin beautifying bacteria.

1. Avoid excessive cleansing

While it is important to remove dirt and makeup, using cleansers or scrubs that are too strong,
or being too vigorous about sloughing off dead skin,
can remove too much stratum corneumnon which the skin beautifying bacteria resides.
It may also remove beneficial sebum that the bacteria feeds on.

2. Prevent dryness by moisturizing

The drier the skin, the less skin beautifying bacteria can flourish there.
The key is creating a moisturized skin environment where skin-beautifying bacteria can grow.

3. UV protection

Ultraviolet rays are harmful to indigenous bacterial flora.

Make sure to apply sunscreen daily.
Hats, clothes with UV protection and parasols are also beneficial in protecting your skin.

4. Improve your gastrointestinal environment

Improving the gastrointestinal environment promotes blood flow, enhances nutritional absorption,
and enables nutrients to better reach the skin, enhancing the skin environment.
At the same time, immune function improves, so the skin barrier is also strengthened, and problems such as rough and sensitive skin will improve.
Incorporate dietary fiber and fermented foods into your daily diet to improve your gastrointestinal environment.

5. Incorporate lactic acid bacteria in your skincare routine, which promotes skin beautifying bacteria

Lactic acid bacteria found in fermented foods like yogurt helps improve the gastrointestinal environment and also increases skin beautifying bacteria.
One recommended step is to periodically using a yogurt mask, but a more convenient approach is using skincare products with lactic acid bacteria in them.

This line contains a beneficial blend of polysaccharides, amino acids, and other supporting ingredients to promote the growth of beautifying bacteria in the epidermis, leading to the ideal skin that is less prone to skin problems.


As the number of skin beautifying bacteria increases and the skin becomes more balanced,
the anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects of skin beautifying bacteria lead to problem-free, healthy skin.
This also produces glycerin, which has moisturizing properties, so it helps create moisturized and beautiful skin from the inside out.
By increasing skin beautifying bacteria and through proper maintenance of your skin, you can achieve a healthier you.
