SKIN BARRIER: What it is and how to protect it

Taking care of and protecting the skin barrier with natural cosmetic products is important since these contain mild and natural ingredients that are less likely to cause skin irritations. In addition, they provide beneficial nutrients that strengthen the skin and keep it healthy, reducing the risk of allergies and adverse reactions.

WHAT IS THE SKIN BARRIER?

It is a protective barrier that helps maintain and regulate hydration and prevents environmental elements, such as the sun and pollution, irritating substances and microorganisms from penetrating the skin and damaging it.

One of the main functions of the skin is protection. A healthy skin barrier helps defend against environmental aggressors like the sun and pollution. In addition to protection, the skin barrier also helps retain and regulate moisture within the skin.

SKIN BARRIER GRAPH

WHAT HAPPENS IF THERE IS AN ALTERATION IN THE BARRIER?

We notice that our skin is more sensitive and it is easier for pollutants, allergens and pathogens to reach the dermis and consequently cause inflammation.


These changes can affect the rate of water evaporation from the skin, which not only makes the skin look and feel dry, but also makes it more prone to other damage, such as inflammation.

HOW DO WE KNOW IF WE HAVE OUR SKIN BARRIER DAMAGED?

— Dry skin without elasticity.

— Peeling and irritation.

— Acne and eczema.

- Sensitivity.

— Inflammation and redness.

TREATMENT AND PREVENTION

What we do not recommend you do:

X Overexfoliate or do abrasive physical exfoliations.

X Use cleansers that leave the skin feeling tight.

X Use irritating products and alcohol.

X Using too many assets at once.

WHAT WE DO RECOMMEND YOU DO:

  • Drink a lot of water.

  • Take care of your skin with natural cosmetics formulated to reduce water loss and improve the skin's barrier function.

  • Gently exfoliate the skin a maximum of 2 times a week.

  • Clean our skin every night.

While your skin barrier has not yet been fully restored, the skin secretes oils in order to mitigate excessive water loss. If you notice that your skin looks oily, you may be tempted to go back to using products that have drying effects. You may also notice certain textures on your skin and feel the need to resume using strong exfoliants. However, it is essential to understand that allowing your skin barrier to recover will give you the opportunity to experience the benefits of having a healthy and resilient skin barrier.

Skin barrier recovery can vary in duration, ranging from 2 to 4 weeks in some people, and possibly a little longer in others. The key lies in patience and persistence in this process.

When your skin is well balanced it is much easier to achieve the skin you want.
