With the growth of home made remedies for everything from colds to acne creams, probiotic action shares new tips on why creating a home acne remedy may not be the best choice to clear your acne symptoms.
The causes of acne vary slightly from one individual to the next, but the common instigators of breakouts like P.acnes bacteria, dirt and oil remain constant. For those seeking breakout relief by using homemade acne remedies, Probiotic Action, best known for their probiotic acne treatment shares industry insight on why using household products may make your skin condition worse.
While many feel that using products like lemon juice, mouthwash, or alcohol and peroxide to clear breakouts is a better option than prescriptions, some of these products may contain properties that aggravate the skin, making breakouts worse. When using homemade acne remedies, many neglect to understand that while acid-like liquids may kill bad bacteria, they are also killing the good bacteria on the skin. Salt and sugar scrubs could also be potentially harmful. When applied to the skin, salt and sugar although they are natural, can burn the skin, and create micro-tears on the skin's surface.
Fernando Perez, a spokesman for Probiotic Action shares additional reasons why using everyday items to cure acne might not work, “Homemade items, like sugars, oils, and fruit extracts contain 'prebiotics,' which could be a type of sugar that feeds good and bad bacteria. Although prebiotics often help the growth of good bacteria, some sugar compounds in oils and fruit juices directly feed and grow bad bacteria and infections.”
