How to Strengthen Your Skin’s Moisture Barrier
PROTECT THE SKIN! When it comes to the body, people are quick to think about organs like the brain, lungs, or heart. What about your skin? The skin is the largestorgan of the human body and it must be protected at all costs!
While you can’t physically see damage to your kidneys or liver, if your skin is damaged, there are definitely signs! It might be dry, flaky, and red and this is probably due to your skin’s moisture barrier. There’s no such thing as a moisture barrier that is too strong, so let’s talk about how you can strengthen yours!
ALWAYS USE SUNSCREEN
In any information on how to protect your skin, you’ll almost always find the tip that you should always use sunscreen. This is because you should. Many people believe that you only need sunscreen on sunny days, but you’re in for a rude awakening! If you think the clouds can stop the UV rays from the sun, you’re wrong.
Any time you walk outside, you should have on a product with at leastSPF 15, but SPF 30 is better because it’ll protect you from both UVA and UVB rays. SPF 50 is ideal but anything above that is unnecessary.
When thinking about your skin barrier, imagine an oily layer protecting your skin from outside stressors while keeping moisture and hydration inside. Fifty percent of this layer is made up of ceramides, so you’re going to want something that will boost its production. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3. While vitamin B3 is good for overall health, niacinamide is going to help protect and strengthen your skin barrier. Not only will it help strengthen the barrier, but it can also help the appearance.
If you want to strengthen your skin’s moisture barrier, you need to work on two parts to hydration: oral and topical. One of the bestways to keep your skin’s moisture barrier strong is by drinking water! Definitely, aim to drink about 8 cups a day. To directly tackle your skin’s barrier, look for a good moisturizer!
