    Background: Due to its immune system, the skin constitutes the first barrier against environmental attack such as chemical and physical agents or bacteria. The bacteria, viruses, archaea and fungi present on the superficial layers of the skin correspond to the cutaneous microbiota. Its composition is crucial to the balance of the immune system. It has already been shown that the composition of the microbiota affects the development of diseases such as atopic dermatitis (since an increase in Staphylococcus aureus has been described), but also diabetes and obesity. This microbiota imbalance (or dysbiosis) is mainly related to individual factors (age), diet, environmental (climate) and behavioral factors (hygiene, consumption of antibiotics). Aim: In our study, we are more interested in the effect of a stressful lifestyle on skin microbiota, and m.. View More»
