Revitalising Your Skin: The Essential Guide to Skin Barrier Protection

In the ever-evolving world of beauty, the term “Skin Barrier” has emerged as a buzzword, making waves across the industry, featuring prominently in your friends’ skincare collections, and trending on various social media platforms.

This is not a trend to be dismissed lightly! The hashtag is fostering a new consciousness about skincare, particularly focusing on the preservation and restoration of your skin barrier.

Applying potent active ingredients or an excessive number of them on your skin without a clear understanding of their function can be detrimental to your skin barrier. This can result in dryness, irritation, and inflammation.

The Impact of Inflammation and Irritation on Skin Health

Sustained inflammation and irritation can accelerate the ageing process. To circumvent this, Clinical Dermatologist Dr Sonia Khorana recommends the use of a pH-balanced cleanser twice daily, coupled with a moisturiser that blends occlusives, humectants, and emollients.
