Impaired Barrier

The skin barrier refers to the outermost layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum, which acts as a protective barrier against external irritants, pathogens, and moisture loss. An impaired skin barrier occurs when this protective function is compromised, leading to increased sensitivity, dryness, redness, inflammation, and susceptibility to various skin conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, or psoriasis.

Several factors can contribute to an impaired skin barrier, including:

-Excessive Washing: Over-washing or using harsh soaps can strip the skin of its natural oils, disrupting the barrier function.

-Dry Environment: Low humidity levels can lead to dehydration of the skin, weakening its barrier function.

-Exposure to Irritants: Contact with irritants such as certain chemicals, detergents, or environmental pollutants can damage the skin barrier.

-Skin Conditions: Certain skin conditions, such as eczema or atopic dermatitis, can compromise the skin barrier, making it more susceptible to irritation and inflammation.

-Age: Aging can lead to a natural decline in skin barrier function due to changes in skin structure and reduced production of essential skin lipids.

Restoring and maintaining a healthy skin barrier is essential for overall skin health. This can be achieved through practices such as using gentle cleansers, moisturizing regularly, avoiding harsh chemicals or irritants, and protecting the skin from extreme environmental conditions. In some cases, skincare products containing ingredients like ceramides, fatty acids, and hyaluronic acid may help repair and strengthen the skin barrier.

If you suspect you have an impaired skin barrier, consulting a Skin consultation experience is advisable for proper diagnosis and treatment.

What products should I use for Rosacea?

-Botanical cream cleanser or radiance cleanser as its only 2% lactic

-No Vitamin A

-Vitamin C she could slowly introduce 1-2 times per week to ensure there is
no reaction.

-Vitamin B 8% (contains hyaluronic acid but less than pure hyaluronic acid)

-Hyaluronic acid (only needed if extremely dry)

-Botanical cream or corrector (Niacinamide is vitamin B3 will be too much
with Vitamin B serum)

-Lux Night cream to assist with ageing, as it contains the collagen

Any of the professional products would be irritating on anyone with rosacea, and any exfoliating products also.
