Why can’t we live without our Finger Lime Serum?
The heartwarming truth behind 2000+ 5 star reviews on our Finger Lime Repair Serum is really quite simple, and the answer is that it works. Our Finger Lime Serum goes beyond skincare trends and short-term solutions. Instead it provides long-term healing and hydration, meaning you can say goodbye to quick fix products and a 12 step skincare routine in order to feel healthy and confident in your skin. But how does it work?
What is the Skin Barrier and why is it 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. Its primary roles include keeping your skin strong and intact, preventing precious water and essential substances from escaping, and making sure that harmful microorganisms, irritants, and allergens stay out - essentially it’s 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. Imagine a damaged skin barrier is a bucket of water with a hole in it. It doesn’t matter how much water you pour into the bucket to keep it full, the problem lies with the hole. Fix the hole (skin barrier) and the water (moisture) will hold. Some signs you may have a damaged skin barrier are dryness, acne, sensitivity, inflammation, redness, rosacea, eczema and skin infections.
The first step to healthy skin is to repair and strengthen your skin barrier. When you have healthy and flourishing skin it is well hydrated, retains moisture, keeps the skin’s pH balanced, prevents foreign substances from entering the body and isn’t experiencing inflammation in the form of breakouts, dryness, skin sensitivity or reactive conditions.
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
Harnessing its water-soluble phyto-nutrients at a cellular level, our Finger Lime Repair Serum nurtures your skin to repair and strengthen its barrier function to seal in moisture, fend off toxins, relieve inflammation, restore balance and create long term hydration for a healthier and more resilient complexion.
Essentially, Finger Lime can help your skin barrier to become more resilient against dry and dehydrated skin, hormonal fluctuations, and correct inflammation to relieve acne, reactive conditions and skin sensitivity. This allows room for your skin to breathe, relieves you from a one-size-fits-all skin routine, and allows you to effortlessly dance between all your seasons and cycles, supporting you every step of the way.
