8th September 2017
Already tired because holidays are over? Here is a small article to get back on your feet, and motivated.
September is usually synonymous of a well-filled handbag, your suit has replaced your bikini, and the sunscreen is put back in the closet: time to go back to school or work.
But you are not the only one going back to school/work. Indeed, your bacteria too. I know, we will talk about bacteria again, as you can see, they are super important. They are on your skin, in your intestines, on your dog or on you pet raccoon #Pocahontas, but also in your home!
Join the club of bacterial homes.
The story of the dog or the raccoon is actually really important. Indeed, your house, apartment, castle or cabin in the woods, has a bacterial identity card that corresponds to you: it is the extension of your own body ecosystem. All living beings in one place form an entity that determines the range of bacteria in your habitat.
For example, more than 56 different species of bacteria demonstrate the presence of a dog and more than 24 species for cats.
If you have children, a man in your life (or ten men in a week, we don’t judge), animals or plants (the orchid that has been alive since last Christmas, Yes!), all these beings will act on the presence of non-harmful bacteria.
When you were on holidays, you met a new bacterial ecosystem in your hotel, your holiday house, your tent, or any other seasonal habitat of your choice. And after 24 hours, your own inhabitants have colonized the space.
Our presence influences the environment and the environment influences our microbiome.
Sometimes we notice that our skin problems are minimised when we are on holidays.
Indeed, moving away from the pollution of big cities, for example, and discovering new bacteria on a hiking trail, in the countryside, in a forest or on the beach, helps to maintain the microbial diversity of our good bacteria of the skin. The natural skin barrier is then reinforced and the sensitive or atopic skins revive. It would be easier to be on holiday all year. Luckily, our products are there to compensate for this lack, and give smiles back to your bacteria!
From Brighton to Loch Ness, the water’s microbiome interacts with your skin microbiome and also returns with you after a beautiful day sunny beach.
For your record, microbial communities in lakes can also be studied to determine whether pond water is healthy or has been disturbed by industry, environmental degradation or territory.
Bacteria in places where it was not expected.
Even the clouds have their own microbiome. These bacteria would trigger rain and maintain mother nature. Sky divers advisory: you are not alone up there!
As you can see, Elodie already explored the microbiome of the clouds!
Why not try to reduce the amount of disinfectant products we use every day? Bacteria surround us but most are not harmful, on the contrary. Do not destroy your bacteria, pamper them!
My home, my good bacteria.
