Dull complexions, uneven skin tone and unwanted acne are some common skincare concerns many of us are faced with. And while we often look for products that aid in combating such issues, it may be time to opt for formulations that help to boost our skin’s resilience.
Our skin barrier (read: the stratum corneum) plays an integral role in preventing transepidermal water loss while protecting against external environmental aggressors.
When the skin barrier function is compromised, the condition of our complexions begin to worsen – think: dryness, inflammation and other skin sensitivities that potentially lead to acne, dullness and a rough skin texture.
And to make matters worse, mask-wearing has contributed to the aggravation of our skin barrier, leading to an onslaught of skin concerns like maskne.
Now that you’re starting to rethink your skincare priorities, we have picked out the products to aid you in this new quest.
