Dermatologists state that cleansing is the most important part of a skincare regimen, but now there’s visual proof. Scientists at the University of California, San Diego, recently presented a series of 3-D images that revealed the thousands of microbial communities your skin plays host to every day.

This is the first time that the bacteria and molecules on the skin have been mapped out in such detail. Until now, little has been understood about the skin’s microbial ecosystem, and researchers are hoping future studies will further reveal the skin’s role in health and disease. The map also revealed that every person has a unique skin composition that’s affected by the food they eat, the medicine they take and the personal care products they use.

Seeing the maps lit up with bacteria is a good reminder that our skin can benefit from adding a deep-cleaning treatment to our daily Regimen. To purge pores of dead cells, dirt and debris and minimize breakout-inducing excess bacteria, try UNBLEMISH Acne Treatment Sulfur Wash and UNBLEMISH Dual Intensive Acne Treatment.
