Restoring supporting the skin barrier system is
the first step towards healthy functioning skin!
  • The skin barrier system (stratum corneum) is the
    outta
  • most layer of the skin, it is made up of
    corneocytes, lipid
  • bilayers and the acid mantle.
  • Think of a brick wall (stratum corneum),
    corneocytes
  • (bricks) the mortar between the bricks (lipid
    bilayers).

3
  • This is our first line of defense against
    pathogens and
  • external environmental influences such as UV
    free
  • radicals caused by pollution and prevents them
    from
  • entering the body through the skin.

4
  • When the skin barrier is impaired it can bring on
  • heighten water loss (dehydration), acne, rosacea,
    atopic
  • dermatitis other various inflammatory
    conditions,
  • chronic dry skin and even increase risk of skin
    cancer.

5
So how do you restore support the skin barrier?
  • We need products that restore the 3 main lipids,
  • cholesterol, ceremides long chain fatty acids
    these
  • make up the lipid bilayers (remember the mortar
  • between the bricks).

6
  • Products need to contain ALL 3 lipids to get
    results.

7
  • We also need to restore the acid mantle to an
    acidic Ph
  • by avoiding products that contain mineral oils,
  • emulsifiers, petroleum based products,
    preservatives,
  • fragrances amines. This will turn off
    inflammatory
  • response, allow the permeability to start
    rebuilding and
  • improve the antimicrobial defenses, decreasing
    the
  • penetration of allergens pathogens.

8
  • The use of harsh incorrect modalities
    incorrect
  • product formulations will remove the skins
    natural
  • defense barrier.
