The skin is the largest organ of the body. We human beings do not think of the skin as being one of the most important organs, with the heart, liver, kidneys and pancreas taking priority over it. Our skin is the outer barometer of what is happening on the inside of our bodies. If there is an irritation, dryness, rosacea, blockage or rash our skin lets us know our internal homeostasis is out of balance, or an ingredient we are using on our skin is not right for us.

Common signs of a compromised skin barrier may include dry, flaky, itchy, sensitive or red skin. When the lipids, which are like the cement that holds the cells together, are depleted by environmental conditions, harsh products, or incorrect treatments, skin loses water occurs and skin becomes dry.  Once this happens an inflammatory  response is triggered.

The skin barrier serves an important role in protecting us from toxins, bacteria, infection and other DNA damaging elements. A compromised skin barrier is more prevalent today than ever before as a result or our environment, over use of skin care products with harsh ingredients, medications, autoimmune diseases, and also overly aggressive professional treatments.

A corrective facial treatment for a compromised skin barrier may include an enzyme peel which contains amino acids which will soften the skin and digest surface cells.  A facial massage will not only relax the mind and the skin, it will also hydrate and soothe when ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, organic stem cells,  and epidermal growth factors are incorporated;

The correct ingredients in home care are imperative to assist in rebuilding the strength and hydration of the skin. The INCORRECT  ingredients applied to your skin may start an avalanche of problems on your skin, from milia, blockages, to rosacea flare up, dryness etc. We often see a water dry surface on an oily clogged skin. WRONG PRODUCTS. Remember -  Hormones create the oil, not the blockage.
