Following an article published by the San Francisco Chronicle regarding viral research to help battle acne bacteria, a representative of Likewise Skincare offers a response.

On October 19th, Likewise Skincare, a manufacturer of moisturizer for oily skin, responds to an article published by the San Francisco Chronicle which reports how certain viruses have the potential to fight off acne.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports, “Scientists have used genetic sequencing to identify 11 new viruses with the potential to kill the out-of-control bacteria that leads to intense breakouts. The findings add to an emerging body of research that indicates benign-to-human viruses living naturally in and on the body may also be used to go after bed sores, leprosy and drug-resistant staph infections.” According to the article, the research suggests that acne- combating viruses known as bacteriophages can help tame P. acnes bacteria. The San Francisco Chronicle reports, “Once they identified the viruses, the scientists found the viruses had the ability to kill isolates of the bacteria in lab dishes, opening the possibility they may one day be the basis for effective treatments for the most common skin disorder in the U.S., with more than 40 million sufferers.”

According to The San Francisco Chronicle, there have been a number of studies regarding acne-killing viruses. The research, San Francisco Chronicle reports, may one day help acne sufferers overcome bad breakouts. According to Lisa Shariat, a representative for Likewise Skincare, “It may be an occasional breakout or it may be a constant battle. Either way, acne affects everyone at one point or another. It would be amazing if this research could help tame the biggest skin complaint in the world. In the meantime, it’s important for acne sufferers to take exceptional care of their skin. Try to find a moisturizer for oily skin with UV combating SPF and antioxidants to ensure a healthy and glowing complexion.”

“Viruses are about 100 times smaller than bacteria. They cause diseases from HIV to the common cold by breaking through a cell’s walls, hijacking its reproductive machinery to spread and, finally, killing the cell when it leaves,” reports The San Francisco Chronicle. “That’s what they do to all cells they invade; when those cells belong to unfriendly bacteria, viruses become humans’ allies.”

Likewise Skincare was created by board-certified dermatologist and President of Likewise, Inc., Dr. Julie Pena. Likewise daily moisturizers are all-in-one but not one-fits-all. Each moisturizer is formulated with skin-balancing toners to work with your unique skin type. The moisturizers combine anti-aging antioxidants, ultra-protective zinc oxide and water-resistant ingredients to keep you protected.
