Let’s face it with storms raging through the UK this week, our garden fencing and roof tiles are not the only things that have taken a battering from the wind and rain. Most have us have felt the wind snapping across our cheeks, and the constant yo-yo between hot and cold indoor and outdoor weather has also meant our skin is being tested to its maximum endurance lately.
The outermost layer of your skin, known as your skin barrier, defends your body against a constant onslaught of environmental threats while simultaneously protecting your body’s critical water balance. Symptoms such as dryness, itching, and inflammation can alert you to a disturbance in this important barrier. With Spring upon us soon, the changing of the seasons, can be highly disruptive to skin, so it’s an important time to look after your skin barrier.
Why is skin barrier protection so important?
If you’re looking at maintaining the health of your skin, then keeping the skin barrier protected and healthy is the first step to radiant skin. It’s the key to boosted, balanced and brighter skin, and stronger skin that can keep external aggressors at bay and allow skin cells to function at optimum levels. ALL skin types, tones and ages can benefit from skin barrier protection.
