When your barrier is functioning correctly
Your acid mantle’s microbiome is perfectly balanced.
And it is this that is the key to healthy skin.
As a clinical esthetician, I understand that skin health begins with a healthy moisture barrier – the protective wall – that locks moisture in and keeps irritants out.
Sadly over time, environmental stressors, age, harsh products and inappropriate treatments undermine essential ingredients in your skin, breaking down the barrier function and knocking your skin’s pH out of balance.
Studies (1) have found that as much as 50% of lipids can be lost from your skin, damaging this protective barrier.
Therefore, the more variety of lipids you replenish topically, the better your barrier will defend against many skin conditions ranging from premature ageing to severe dryness, breakouts or inflammation.
You can think of your protective barrier as the brick-and-mortar structure of your skin, containing “bricks” or skin cells. The ceramides, cholesterol, and fatty acids (lipids) are the “mortar” that holds the bricks together, preventing irritants and harmful bacteria from entering.
They are an integral part of your skin health and the key to a well-functioning barrier system – the essential armour (2) that has been scientifically proven to keep your skin healthy.
The essence of skin moisturising is lipid replacement. Fortify was created to do this with the perfect ratio of skin-identical ingredients that mimic the composition and structure of your skin.
Ingredients that integrate perfectly into the cells and the spaces between them to repair your barrier and heal many of its associated conditions such as extreme dryness, irritation, premature ageing, acne inflammation, sensitivity and more.
