3 things you must do to repair a damaged skin barrier:

1. Simplify your skin care routine. Now is not the time to double cleanse or over-exfoliate. A simple Cleanse. Tone. Moisturize. Is all you need until your skin heals.

2. Hydrate! Hydrate! And Hydrate some more! Heavy duty moisturizers and humectants are key in restoring the skin barrier and minimizing transepidermal water loss.

3. Eliminate the products and/or treatments that caused the damage to your skin barrier.

Tone Balance Elixir is your friend, we formulated this specifically to repair a compromised skin barrier.

Myth

“Cleaner is Greener”

Overall, many believe that clean beauty would mean you’re buying products that are both better for human health and for the environment. Unfortunately, perceptions about what’s good and bad are usually incorrect in this movement. The reality is, many people choose natural ingredients because they’re under the errant assumption that they will always be the ecologically sound choice.

Myth

“60% of what we put on our skin ends up in our bloodstream”

Luckily, the skin is a pretty good barrier that keeps the outside world out. It's actually a formulation challenge to get ingredients in your cosmetic products to absorb even just into the layers of the epidermis, let alone the dermis and beyond. Cosmetic products at large typically just interact with the outermost layer of your skin. Any ingredient proven to show absorption would be banned or requre significantly more safety data to be permissable.
