This insidious but common issue may be the answer to your most stubborn skin issues.
We talk a lot about skin barrier health, resiliency, and integrity at Volta. When the natural moisturizer barrier of the skin becomes compromised, the door is left open to a slew of troublesome issues.
WHAT IS THE SKIN BARRIER?
The skin barrier is the uppermost layer of skin. It protects the skin and body by acting as a filter - keeping the good things in (such as natural moisture) and the bad things (such as environmental toxins) out.
A healthy skin barrier is critical to obtaining and maintaining healthy, hydrated, smooth, even, and glowing skin.
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS MY SKIN BARRIER IS DAMAGED?
-Rough, waxy, or bumpy texture.
-Inflammation + redness
-"Spicy" or stinging sensation when applying products.
-Tight feeling + dehydration
-Enhanced fine lines
-Dull, dry, or flaky
-Slow, sluggish healing process and increased acne scarring or sun damage.
