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 combatting 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.
In a recent interview with FEMALE, Christine Chang, the co-founder of cult skincare brand Glow Recipe also predicted that 2021 will see a huge emphasis on barrier-strengthening ingredients such as ceramides to assist with skin immunity.
Now that you’re starting to rethink your skincare priorities, we have picked out the products to aid you in this new quest.
