The skin has both bad AND good bacteria living on its surface. It’s the bad bacteria that leads to acne, but the good bacteria is essential for healthy and youthful skin.
Although the underlying causes of acne and acne rosacea may vary, inflammation and puss is caused by bad skin bacteria getting into small acne lesions or blocked pores.[quote]Our NEW Silver Serum from Skin Shop is the first ‘smart’ anti-acne skin treatment that contains a patented form of silver called MicroSilver ™ that specifically seeks out and kills bad skin bacteria while leaving good skin bacteria in tact.[/quote]
The problem with anti-acne skin treatments is that they kill ALL skin bacteria, both bad and good. So yes they get rid of the spots, but they leave the skin extremely dry and flaky. Skin needs good skin bacteria to stay healthy and balanced. This is particularly important for people with adult acne as the harsh anti-bacterial agents in treatments aimed primarily at teens can leave adult skin extremely dry and can lead to premature ageing.
Silver Serum is also designed to remain active on the skin for several hours after application, so keeping acne lesions constantly guarded against becoming populated with bad skin bacteria.
We asked one of our Skin Shop customers and acne sufferer to test Silver Serum to see how it performed
