Your Skin Barrier, Aging and How to Restore a Healthy Skin Barrier

You might be curious as to what your skin's barrier is. Simply put, the skin barrier is a watertight membrane that holds the skin's outer layers together smoothly. Corneocytes, which act as bricks, make up the structure. Mortar-like fats like ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids bind these bricks together tightly. This layer also contains filaggrin, a protein that aids in the production of natural moisturising factors for the skin. Skin feels soft, supple, and plump when these outer layers are healthy. 

However, if the outer layers of the skin are injured, the skin may seem dull and feel rough or dry. The key chemicals that keep skin cells intact: ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids like linoleic acid, are lost or unable to hang on to when the skin's barrier is destroyed or compromised. This causes the skin to lose water and become more sensitive to external aggressors.

How can You Tell if Your Skin Barrier is Actually Damaged 

A compromised skin barrier makes it difficult to repair signs of aging which is unsurprising. As we age, even though the number of cell layers remains constant, the outer skin layer (epidermis) of the skin thins. At this stage, this affects the skin barrier by weakening the bond of the barrier. The appearance of the skin changes including: 

  • lack of elasticity - loss of firmness
  • visible fine lines and wrinkles
  • discolouration - age spots, liver spots and pigmentation
  • sensitised, dry and irritated skin and transepidermal water loss.



How to Treat a Damaged Skin Barrier 

It's important to replenish your skin's barrier, whether it's damaged or healthy, with healing substances like fatty acids, cholesterol, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid. When it comes to replenishing your skin barrier, you can never have too many of these components, and including them in your skincare routine will guarantee that your skin reaps the advantages.

You can help repair your skin barrier by simplifying your skin care regime.  For instance, after cleansing and toning, you can apply the MIRACLE POUR multi-active serum. This is a luscious oil serum designed with your skin barrier in mind.  It is 100% natural and enriched with 28 high-performance botanicals that aid in cellular renewal, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and youthful.


Ingredients Do Matter for a Healthy Skin Barrier 

Infused with phytonutrients, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, amino acids and most importantly essential fatty acids in the MIRACLE POUR multi-active serum, all ingredients work together to target visible signs of aging whilst repairing and strengthening the skin barrier.

Three powerhouse ingredients take your skin to the next level:

  • Bakuchiol is a natural plant-based alternative to retinol that promotes firmness, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and increases radiance.
  • The firming active ingredient Spilanthes Acmella is commonly referred to as a natural alternative to botox for noticeably smoothing the skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Cylindrotheca Fusiformis noticeably reduces fine lines and wrinkles while also increasing skin elasticity, moisture levels, and smoothness.

This is truly an effective and luxurious experience for your aging skin. The MIRACLE POUR multi-active serum will assist you in maintaining a healthy skin barrier, resulting in smoother, softer, younger and healthy looking skin.
