Healthy skin is a bacterial battleground populated with "friendly" bugs. These eat our sweat and, in return, defend our skin from less friendly bugs that would not only eat our sweat but us as well. Staphylococcus aureus is a typical invader that causes pimples and boils (or worse) when it beats our defences. When we wash, we not only remove dirt and invasive bacteria, we also release a tide of friendly bugs from pores to recoat our skin for protection.

friendly bugs are not "released" by our skin,actually we wash off the friendly bacteria with soap etc. along with everything else.
