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?
As you age, your skin loses fatty acids, which are critical to keeping skin moisturized, plump and youthful looking.
Environmental stressors like smoke, dust, and free radicals can wreak havoc, weakening the skin barrier over time.
Exposure to UVA/UVB Rays in the outdoors can accelerate aging and wrinkles.
Over time, exposure to blue light from digital devices can cause discoloration, inflammation, and increased sensitivity.
Exfoliating is essential, but can wreak havoc if not done carefully! Use exfoliators that don’t over-strip - and in moderation.
Heightened cortisol levels, associated commonly with stress, can lead to dull skin, uneven skin tones, dark spots, and wrinkles.
Stripping cleansers or products with harsh chemicals like fragrances can deplete your skin barrier and disrupt your microbiome.

Strengthening Your Skin Barrier

Cleanse Path

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

Exfoliate Path

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.

Prevent Breakouts Path


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.
