How to repair the skin barrier

The skin is the largest organ in our body and plays a crucial role in protecting against infections and external agents. The skin barrier is an essential part of this protection, but what happens when this barrier is damaged? Understanding how to repair it is the first step to enjoying healthy, glowing skin.

What is the Skin Barrier?

The skin barrier is the outermost layer of our skin, mainly composed of lipids, proteins, and cells. Its main function is to prevent transepidermal water loss and protect our skin from harmful external agents. When this barrier is damaged, our skin becomes more susceptible to dehydration, irritations, and infections.

Signs of a Damaged Skin Barrier

There are various signs that can indicate a damaged skin barrier. Some of them are:

  • Flaking or dryness of the skin.
  • Recurring redness or irritation.
  • Itching or tightness.
  • Increased sensitivity to products or the environment.

How to Repair the Skin Barrier?

Here are some tips to help you in this process:

1. Use gentle and appropriate products

Opt for gentle cleansers that do not excessively remove your skin’s natural lipids. Additionally, choose moisturizing creams and lotions that contain ingredients such as ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and plant-based oils to strengthen and repair the barrier.

2. Avoid excessive use of harsh products

Excessive use of products such as chemical exfoliants, astringents or alcohol can damage the skin barrier. Pay attention to your skin’s tolerance and limit the use of these products accordingly. You can also opt for gentler or less concentrated alternatives to maintain your skin’s balance.

3. Protect your skin from the sun

Sun exposure can weaken the skin barrier and accelerate aging. This is a factor to take into account year-round but especially in summer. Always use sunscreen appropriate for your skin type and avoid direct solar radiation during the most intense hours. Combine it with a serum high in antioxidants to combat free radicals and give greater luminosity to your skin.

4. Nourish your skin from within

Do not forget to take care of your skin from the inside. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is essential to achieve a more radiant appearance. Factors such as lack of sleep, poor hydration, high levels of stress and an unbalanced diet can contribute negatively to the health of your skin.
