I believe skin health starts with a healthy moisture barrier
everything works better when it’s intact.
It’s a protective wall locking moisture in and keeping irritants out.
MY CLINICAL ADVISE
A dry, impaired skin is not easy to treat, simply because there are so many things going on; skin lacks oil creating dryness and it also lacks moisture, which leads to dehydrated skin.
Whilst both of these conditions present the same symptoms at a cellular level, they have very different requirements, because there is a huge difference between moisturisation and dehydration.
Dry skin can also be deficient in the protein Filaggrin, which can have a dramatic effect on your skins barrier function; Skin appears thin and delicate with pores that are barely visible, oil production slows down because sebaceous glands are less active, this inhibits the skins moisture retaining capabilities.
Your skin’s moisture barrier has a bricks-and-mortar like structure: the bricks are skin cells called corneocytes, and the mortar is a fatty mixture made up of 25% cholesterol, 15% fatty acids and 50% ceramides. These are all types of fat (lipid) molecules that must be present in a specific ration to keep your skin moist and healthy.
Fortify was formulated with the perfect ratio of these missing ingredients, in order to mimic and strengthen your natural barrier, bringing much needed relief to dry, fragile, depleted and prematurely aged skin.
NAKED RITUAL: Apply to face, neck and décolleté, after you have applied your favourite skin shot, at both sunrise and sunset.

Protection: Our natural protective barrier goes beyond skin, we need to build protection into our daily routine, from energies that may upset our equilibrium. Become your own light worker, radiating positive energy into any areas your body needs it.
Ceramide Complex: Skin cells are surrounded by a multi-lamellar structure composed of ceramides, fatty acids and cholesterol in a requisite 1:1:1 This skin identical lipid combination, perfectly imitates this structure, replenishing what’s missing, helping to shield the skin from irritants and preventing water from evaporating off the skin.
Cholesterol fortifies and re-densifies a thin fragile skin, helping to promote a more resilient look.
