How to Protect & Repair the Skin Barrier

The crisp, winter air can leave skin feeling dry and flakey. Throw in the mix that most people are spending more time indoors at this time and you have a recipe for tight, dry skin.

Most people slather on more skin cream when their skin begins to feel dry. However, this may be the worst thing to do if the products used weaken the skin’s natural moisture barrier and leave the skin feeling tighter and drier than before. Even worse, these products may not address skin conditions or heal the damage sustained from environmental factors. The good news is there are moisturising products that contain nourishing active ingredients that repair and enhance the skin’s natural moisture barrier. Add these to your list.

Serum 16 is a powerful serum that visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage, by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. This professional-strength retinoid is easily tolerated and improves the skin’s texture and tone, while evening out discolouration and leaving the skin brighter.
