How to Strengthen & Repair Your Skin Barrier
Sometimes, we feel so much greasiness on our skin, but it is incredibly dehydrated inside. Are you dealing with itchy and dry skin patches? If you are experiencing sensitivity, acne, redness, or other skin issues, then it is a clear sign that your skin barrier is in deep trouble.
Our skin barrier is really sensitive and if you do not care for your skin properly, it will be damaged. The use of unnecessary skincare products is another reason for skin damage. So, yes, you can blame these skincare products because they contain several irritants, harsh chemicals, and ineffective elements.
How to fix this issue?
If your skin barrier is in trouble, then it means it is attracting dirt, pollution, and impurities. Basically, our skin consists of three layers as the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis. These layers are responsible for keeping our skin in good form. When it gets hurt, it destroys the inner layer of your skin and you will experience various skin concerns.
In order to fix this issue, you should provide maximum moisture or hydration to your skin. Consider those skincare products that contain hyaluronic acid as it provides hydration, making your skin plump and healthy.
