Skin health and anti ageing should be all about rebuilding the outer layer of skin, the natural barrier function, whist keeping inflammation out. This removes the need to treat the underlying layers with actives or harsh treatments.
Healthy skin is made up of 50% lipids & ceramides, 25% cholesterol, and 25% fatty acids. One of the main components in the skin’s moisture barrier – the fatty acids – are found throughout the dermis and is crucial to skin health.
Often, these components become out of balance; factors outside of our control – including genetics, stress, and pollution – deplete natural lipid production, allowing bacteria to penetrate, intensifying skin’s reactive state and weakening its protection as the barrier breaks down – this causes water to evaporate and the skin to dehydrate at a very fast rate. When skin cells become impaired, they provide an immune response that results in redness and inflammation.
When the barrier is functioning efficiently, the underlying tissues don’t have to keep reacting, it can provide protection against these conditions and, achieving skin correction becomes easier. After years of research on the protective role of the barrier function, I created Bio Lipid Complex with a precise, proportionate blend of fatty acids and ingredients identical to those synthesised by the skin, to tackle the underlying cause of redness and inflammation and rebuild the skin.
Light and molecularly intelligent, lipids and omegas act like cement between the cell walls; blending with sebum to actively re-balance the barrier without aggressive action, providing protection from the entry of microbes and allergens, and preventing moisture loss. The results are promising, with many of my clients who suffer from the dryness, inflammation, and premature ageing associated with dermatitis and eczema, reporting an improvement in their symptoms as I continue to treat ‘like with like’ with skin-identical ingredients that are missing.
