“On est plus bactérien qu’humain”

“We are more bacterial than human”

Elsa Jungman, Dr. in skin pharmacology and founder of ELSI Beauty


A look back at the first Skin School by Seasonly

Because you love your skin and like to take care of it but you (just like us) are lost in the face of the amount of information available out there, we invite you to Seasonly every month to decipher a subject with an expert.

Our goal: to inform you and give you the keys to clean beauty and a healthy skincare routine for your skin and the planet.

For this first Skin School, we teamed up with Dr. Elsa Jungman, doctor in skin pharmacology, who came to talk to us about skin, microbiome, namely all the bacteria present on the skin, and good practices. Here's what you had to remember:

  1. The best is the enemy of good. When it comes to your skin, this adage has never been more true. Be aware that 'too much skincare kills skincare' and that multiplying products can turn out to be counterproductive, since the layering of active ingredients weakens the skin, rather than protecting it.

  1. Fragile skin & harmful ingredients do not go well together. Stressed or weakened skin (ours...) fulfills its role of protective wall less and lets ingredients, the good and... especially the bad, pass through more.

  1. Science is advancing, and the discoveries are being confirmed... We have recently known that the skin is made up of not three but four layers. The fourth is essentially composed of good bacteria (microbiome), necessary for healthy and beautiful skin.

  1. ...and we must take them into account in our beauty routine! Cleaning too intensively or with products that are too aggressive can harm this fourth layer composed of good bacteria. Indeed, our skin is a nest for microbes and that’s so much the better! What we call the microbiome, made up of an infinite number of microorganisms, constitutes our body's first barrier against external attacks (pathogens, contamination, sun, etc.)... we must therefore take care of it! So, sensitive skin, choose oils!
