Unlocking the Secret to Radiant Skin: The Power of a Healthy Skin Barrier | Zen Botanics Skincare

Discover the secret to plump, smooth, and radiant skin - a healthy skin barrier. Your skin barrier acts as a protective shield, keeping bacteria out and locking in natural oils and moisture. Nurturing this barrier is crucial for safeguarding your delicate skin!

Your skin barrier is basically a protective shield that keeps bacteria out and our natural oils within. It helps to keep water in the skin so that it retains its plumpness and moisture level.

As we age, maintaining a healthy skin barrier becomes a challenge. Striking the right balance between achieving a glowing complexion and preserving skin integrity can be tricky. Harsh actives like retinol and exfoliating acids, as well as L-ascorbic acid forms of Vitamin C, can compromise the skin barrier, leading to visible redness, dryness, sensitivity, and more.

To restore your skin barrier's health, follow these steps:

1. Immediately pause using ingredients that are designed to speed skin cell turnover so you can let your skin naturally repair and heal. Stop using exfoliating acids, retinol and ascorbic acid forms of Vitamin C. 

2. Focus on MOISTURISING - Skip morning cleansers and opt for skincare products free from synthetic fragrances, harsh preservatives, and excessive essential oils.

Look for formulations containing humectants, emollients and occlusives to reduce water loss and support skin healing. 

Choose intensive creams rich in ceramides, nourishing face oils rich in fatty acids, soothing plant extracts such as Centella Asiatica and Pentavitin® and moisture-binding humectants such as glycerin, hyaluronic acid.

3. Gentle care - Avoid using hot water and hot showers as it can damage the outer layer of skin and strip natural oils, causing inflammation and redness. Switch to gentle washcloths to minimise further irritation.
