How to Build a Resilient Barrier Function

How to Build a Resilient Barrier Function

Did you know the barrier function is one of the most important organs in the body?

Located in the corneum layer of the complexion it is made up of flattened skin cells, lipid molecules, cholesterol and fatty acids, you will also find essential components of Ceramides too. All of these skin components are designed to maintain the strength of the skin by acting as a glue for the cells, along with protecting your complexion from daily nasties.

But, over time if not protected, the quality and quantity of the Ceramides begin to impair our barrier function. The result? Skin that is dehydrated, lacklustre, sensitive and showing signs of irritation and redness.

So, if you’re old enough to remember singing along to tunes from the Backstreet Boys, then we suggest you read on, as the Ceramides in our barrier function start depleting from the ripe age of 26. Cute right?

When protecting our barrier function, it all comes down to building resilience, and allowing your complexion to protect the barrier will result in ultimate skin health. Which for the most part is something we’re all out to achieve.
