Is Your Skin Barrier Damaged?
Finger Lime is extremely nurturing for sensitive skin and works on a cellular level to repair and strengthen your skin barrier - but why is this so important? Your skin is your body’s largest organ and is composed of multiple layers. The epidermis, better known as our ‘skin barrier’ is the outermost layer; it holds in moisture and is your body’s first line of defence. It keeps the moisture in and irritants/toxins out, and is the key for dewy, soft and healthy skin. When your skin barrier is damaged this can lead to water loss and your skin can become dull, dehydrated and irritated. Some signs you may have a damaged skin barrier are dryness, acne, sensitivity, inflammation, redness, rosacea, eczema and skin infections.
4 SIMPLE STEPS TO STRENGTHEN YOUR SKIN BARRIER
1. TAKE CARE OF YOUR PHYSICAL / MENTAL / EMOTIONAL SELF
Take care of your physical/mental/emotional self ~ It is important to take care of your body as stress, your sleep schedule, imbalanced hormones, toxins and a poor diet can damage your skin barrier.
2. DON'T OVER-EXFOLIATE
Using harsh exfoliators/scrubbing your skin too hard can weaken your skin barrier. Using gentle exfoliators like our Konjac Sponge will provide gentle exfoliation by removing excess dirt, oil and dead skin cells from the surface, while balancing ph levels to help keep your skin clean and reveal your inner glow.
3. SUN PROTECTION
Protecting your skin from the harsh UV rays from the run by using SPF is so important to prevent skin damage.
4. FINGER LIME REPAIR SERUM
Our hero Finger Lime serum provides an everyday hydration boost, is a natural antiseptic and is loaded with water-soluble phyto-compounds that work beneath the skin on a cellular level to promote cell protection and repair your skin barrier function. This locks in moisture to keep bacteria out, and promotes an overall healthier and stronger complexion.
