Imagine the walls in your house, the stack of the bricks were held together by mortar (cement surrounding each brick). Now imagine this is the only thing protecting your house from outside toxins. This is the story of your skin’s outermost layer. A strong skin barrier is the foundational building block of healthy skin, it keeps moisture IN and impurities OUT. But here the question arises: how do you keep it strong? Keep on reading to catch the cat and take the power back in your hands:
WHAT IS SKIN BARRIER?
The bricks in this scenario represent the dry, dead skin cells called corneocytes. These are made up of the same keratin proteins as your hair and nails. The mortar depicts the matrix of lipids or fats surrounding the cells, together they form the first-line defence of your body. When the brick and mortar of the epidermis are damaged, the skin barrier becomes weak and opens a way for dirt, bacteria and other environmental toxins that alter the skin mood and function.
WHAT DAMAGES THE SKIN BARRIER?
The villains in this tale draw their strength from the numbers, and they take their sweet time to multiply by thousands. The mortar (lipids) of your skin can be depleted by harsh chemicals, products, climate, and handling (stop touching your face) years after years. Some obvious but still hidden toxins silently kill the peace of your skin barriers like pollutants that oxidise the lipid structure, excessive washing stripping off the natural oils, and an unhealthy lifestyle.
HOW TO REPAIR, RESTORE, AND REPLENISH THE SKIN BARRIER?
You are the hero/saviour of your skin barrier strength, you have the power in your hands to protect the barrier from getting damaged. Does it sound strange to you? Stop behaving like a helpless bystander, besides ageing and genetics, you have it all in your hand. The skin does heal, repair just by switching from burgers to healthy juices, from harsh chemical skincare to organic skincare, and from late-night bingeing to “early to bed and early to rise”. To start, check your skincare’s ingredient list if they contain any chemical traces, then it’s the right time to ditch all of them. If you think the damaged skin barriers are the root cause for your skin irritation, then right away opt for products with two key things: antioxidants to eliminate the environmental stressors and moisture building humectants to replenish the lipid.
Chuck, those harsh chemical products that rupture your first line of defence are effective too, and let’s lookout for some amazing 100% organics products that are effective too:
