Your Skin Barrier ? What Is It ?

Posted by DMinerals on 2/21/2019 to The Whole You

What is your skin barrier ? And why is it important ?

It is the largest organ in our body. It is made up of cells and lipid fats.

It is the outermost part of our skin. It helps sustain the skin's immunity.

The barrier regulates the skins inflammation. 

It protects the skin from the external environment !

It is designed to prevent the loss of water out of the skin and 
to prevent the entrance of harmful irritants and micro-organisms.

It is also responsible for maintaining the skins hydration, firmness (lipid barrier)

Inflammation occurs if irritants  and allergens penetrate the epidermis.

Harsh products & harsh exfoliation used on the skin will damage & weaken the barrier
