Purchase Skinfix Body Repair Balm & Rapid Repair Balm to Support Skin Barrier Health. ) “It’s one of the only product lines that I’ve found that helps to maintain skin barrier health effectively,” Dr. Turner told Denis and her audience about Skinfix. The skin barrier is the gatekeeper to overall skin health. It is the outermost layer of the skin that keeps our internal moisture in and protects us from outside irritants. If your skin barrier is impaired, it ultimately leads to chronic irritated skin. Our emotions, stress levels, and the food we eat can play a big part in our skin barrier’s health. Dr. Turner believes that small changes in our daily lives - combined with skin barrier healing products such as Skinfix - can make your skin barrier healthy again. Here are some skin sins and fixes featured on The Marilyn Denis show:
- Avoid hydrocortisone creams, as they actually thin your skin barrier. Use Skinfix healing balms instead.
- Don’t over exfoliate. One alternative to harsh scrubs is to use fruit serums to get rid of dry, peeling skin.
- Get seven to eight hours of sleep every night.
- Try to de-stress. Some findings suggest increased stress can impact our skin barrier’s overall health.
