The products

I do not have all the products here yet so this experiment will not start immediately.  Don't worry, I come from a scientific background and will not start without letting people know.  Everything needs to be documented. For now, I want to show you a) all the products that will be used b )How they will be used and c) Why/what their use is. We have two products from Mother Dirt. (http://motherdirt.com/)  The first one is their cleanser: https://shop.motherdirt.com/product/face-body-cleanser/ I like this product.  It comes out like a foam, leaves you feeling pretty clean and is easy to wash off.  For those of you who are minimalists, this is a good product.  It's also stated on their website that this cleanser helps prepare the skin for the bacteria.  The second product that I will use from Mother Dirt is their AO+ Mist.  This is a probiotic spray that contains AO (Ammonia oxidizing bacteria).  It thrives on sweat and feeds off the bad stuff on our skin.  https://shop.motherdirt.com/product/ao-mist-2/ I've used this and it feels like spritzing water on your skin.  The bacteria is said to thrive on our skin at night so I will use the Mother Dirt cleanser and the AO+ Mist at night.  I will use the AO+ Mist during the day as well, but without the cleanser.  I will use the other cleanser for that.  NB: Mother dirt is effective with other products.  Of course, putting an anti-bacterial cream on your face will kill the bacteria and reduce its efficacy to almost zero.  It's why I've paired this product up with the next list of products.  They should not kill the bacteria and should help nourish the skin even further.  According to Mother Dirt, you should spritz your AO+ Mist at the end or on top of any other products or makeup. It's your last step.  You can also spritz during the day if you do not feel fresh or if you've been sweating.  This bacteria loves to eat ammonia which gives sweat its odor.  Therefore, if you're sweating more than usual, a spritz may be a good idea until the next bathing time.

The other part will be Carley's products.  Their products are vegan and have rave reviews.  They fit my idea of nourishing the skin and should not be killing my AOB (the bacteria).  This is their store http://www.clearandsmoothskin.com/shop/In the morning, I will use their acne product.  I will wash my face with my hands and their Shea butter soap.  Then, I will use their tea tree oil anti-acne wash.  I will finish off with washing this product off my skin with the same Shea butter soap, but on a facecloth this time.  http://clearandsmoothskin.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=34  They have a BP version of their acne product, but I'm trying to stay away from anything that could kill this good bacteria or that would hinder it the most.  I feel like tea tree oil is likely safer.  I will be using their Baobab moisturizer http://clearandsmoothskin.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=35  I'm not sure if I will use it once per day or twice per day yet.  It all depends on how everything feels.  I usually moisturize once in the morning and once at night.  I will use their tepezcohuite mask every few days.  http://clearandsmoothskin.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=48  It's funny because in my research, I kept finding how nourishing tepezcohuite is and Carley's had pretty much every ingredient that I wanted to nourish my skin.  I will use their eye cream to try to minimize the burns under my eyes.  There are no bags there (yet) so I will not be able to comment on this aspect.  http://clearandsmoothskin.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=40  I will use their shaving butter in order to shave http://clearandsmoothskin.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9&products_id=36  Sadly, I am looking for the correct blade to shave with.  I get a lot of irritation.  If any of you have any suggestions, please let me know.  I will be using their Tamany cream to repair scars (my red dot on my forehead and the veins showing around my nose are the areas that I plan to target)  http://clearandsmoothskin.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=3&products_id=20  Lastly, if I start a major cyst or zit, I will use their on the spot tea tree oil treatment http://clearandsmoothskin.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=41

Mother Dirt's job will be to replenish my good bacteria while the Carley's products will be to nourish my skin.  Some of their products like their shaving cream is not something that I think will nourish my skin, but I'm trying to minimize the damage done to the bacteria.  Does a certain PH level kill the bacteria, etc. ?  I don't know because Mother Dirt doesn't answer it's darn emails lol  I discussed my plan with Steve from Carley's and he doesn't feel like his products should harm the bacteria.  He wishes that he had more answers, but Mother Dirt won't answer his emails as well lol I want to repeat that I am not sponsored by any of these companies and that no results will be faked.  I have no Photoshop skills and as a psychologist, faking results is one of the worst crimes that I think one can do scientifically.  I may make this into a proper paper at the end and submit it to dermatologist friends who can likely get it published, but for now, I just want a blog form.  I want beautiful, clear, radiant skin.  I've seen a lot of quackery online that made no sense.  I also feel like I've tried most if not all of the typical treatments.  I took a few months and put this together (thanks to Steve from Carley's for his help).  Now, I am awaiting Carley's products (they are being shipped) and we will see how things go. NB: I expect some kind of a purge.  I expect a big one actually.  People who used a lot of chemicals and go the nourishing route seem to pay for it for a while.  I'm not thrilled about it, but I am expecting it.  If this works out in the end, it will be worth it.  If it doesn't, well my skin will have had a break from all these chemicals so hopefully they can give me relief for longer periods once I restart them as they are my plan B if this fails.  One thing is sure, I cannot harm my skin by burning it with chemicals like I did with Tetrinoid or Glycolic acid (not sure which).  So here goes nothing that I hope will become something good!

PS: I  will be taking pics of my skin but I will also take pics of me holding each product or make a video because I know how many skeptics are out there.
