In Topic: Bacillus Coagulans For Fighting Acne?

I got a supplement for my dog with Bacillus Coagulans hoping it would help his skin problems, but it hasn't been a miracle cure. Nothing has.


In Topic: Help Your Skin Function - Stop Impairing It!

Posts by Marks Daily Apple about the Skin Biome:  The microbes that live on our skin and the valuable functions they perform.

 

This one names some specific microbes and what they do for you:

This is about not harming and even aiding in your skin's biome:

And it mentions research into a probiotic lotion specifically for acne:

"Consider probiotic lotions. One lotion containing Enterococcus faecalis SL-5 reduced acne lesions and countered the effect of acne-causing bacteria. You could make your own, too. Seriously: researchers just added E. faecalis SL-5 probiotic powder to a commercial lotion to produce the anti-inflammatory effect. However, I’m not yet sold on the idea that probiotic lotions are necessary (or even helpful) in the absence of skin problems"

You should continue not impairing your skins ability to function by avoiding cleansers and topicals that alter PH and remove lipids.  The dead skin thing is irrelevant.

It can help or hurt.  For one, it improves insulin sensitivity which improves hormone balance, inflammation & general health.  But some kinds of exercise can boost androgens involved in oily skin& acne formation. Plus many people consume more carbs & supplements to fuel their workouts and/or body building.

 

That said, being sedentary is bad for you. Period. We are supposed to move around. That doesn't necessarily require 'working out.'  also, working out a couple days a week doesn't make up for the days you spend being sedentary.

Have you kept up a healthy diet and lifestyle throughout this or do you try for a bit, stress out and quit?
