The outermost layer of your skin has a natural, protective barrier. This outer surface contains a 3-part ecosystem: Microbiome, Acid Mantle, and Lipid Layer.
When all these parts are at their healthiest, the skin barrier is able to keep irritants and environmental stressors out and seal healthy nutrients and moisture in.
Your skin barrier is essential for good health and simultaneously protecting your body’s critical water balance.
