Skin Barrier 101
Stop stressing your skin barrier with toxic and sensitizing ingredients. True Botanicals exclusively formulates with ingredients that strengthen the skin barrier for your glowiest skin.
How can you tell if your skin barrier is damaged?
When your skin barrier is damaged with cracks, free radicals and UV rays accelerate skin aging. That means dullness, redness, irritation, blemishes, wrinkles and fine lines. When your skin barrier is strong, the good stuff, like moisture, is kept in. That means glowy, youthful-looking skin.
What causes damage to the skin barrier?
Strengthening Your Skin Barrier
Strengthening Your Skin Barrier
The first and most common skin barrier offender: your cleanser. Avoid cleansers made with sulfates, perfumes or synthetic fragrance because those ingredients can strip your skin of essential oils. Choose a cleanser that is nourishing and supportive like our Ginger Turmeric Cleansing Balm
Exfoliation is key to sloughing away dead skin cells in order to avoid clogged pores and allow new cells to surface and give you that extra glow.
Not all exfoliants are created equal. Watch out for exfoliants that are sharp with jagged edges or contain plastic beads or balls. These products can not only tear your precious skin barrier but can lead to over exfoliation, leading to dry, irritated, and red skin. Try our Resurfacing Moisture Mask 2-3 times a week to achieve the best results.
Repair & Strengthen
Choose skin-barrier first ingredients and regimens to help strengthen the skin barrier for your most gorgeous, glowy skin.
Pure Radiance Oils and Chebula Extreme Cream are all made with small molecule seed oils that nourish, strengthen and replenish your skin barrier with omega fatty acids. These products are truly your skin barrier’s best friends. The oils are like little puzzle pieces that fill in the vulnerable areas of the barrier. They use carefully selected seed oils that are packed with anti-aging antioxidants to help boost the protection against environmental aggressors like blue light and pollution.
Use skin-barrier first moisturizers that are made with small molecule seed oils. These nourish, strengthen and replenish your skin barrier with omega fatty acids and keep bad bacteria out.
Bacteria is essential for keeping your skin barrier balanced and happy. True Botanicals products are non-stripping and help good bacteria to do what it needs to do – which is keep the bad bacteria at bay.
Stop using harsh products like nutshell scrubs that cause microtears in your skin, which allow bacteria and pollution to wreak havoc on your skin barrier. Start using gentle chemical exfoliants that gently shed your skin’s surface skin cells.
