If you are experiencing skin problems on top of everything this year, you are not alone! We think that almost everyone has had their share of masks and environmental factors. Now, with the cooling of the air, our skin started to alarm. With the craze of internet shopping, if there is no product you have not tried and you still have skin problems, it is time to look for new alternatives. Many factors, from lifestyle changes to daily routines, can trigger redness, itching and sensitivity of your skin. The weakening skin barriers can make this situation more difficult. So how can we strengthen our skin barriers? Before answering this question, we examine the changes in your skin and their reasons …
One of the most obvious reasons for the change in skin barriers is water temperature! Very cold or very hot water can damage the protective barriers of your skin, making the smooth and radiant appearance instead of dry and irritated. The solution to this problem is simple! You should always use warm water when washing your face or using cleansing products. As always, too much of everything is harmful, even the heat of water …
Considering the time we spend outside this year, we think that we nourish our skin with Vitamin D as much as possible during the summer months. However, sun rays can have bad effects rather than good aspects. We know that many factors such as UVA rays and environmental pollution cause premature aging in the long term, but your skin barriers are seriously damaged in the short term. A sunscreen with extensive SPF is not only necessary in summer, but also in winter. Creams containing SPF enriched with antioxidants, moisturizing creams and barrier strengthening ingredients not only protect your face from harmful sun rays, but also care for your skin.

It is imperative to wash your face at least once a day, but you may be washing your face many times a day with the cleansing obsession that has surrounded us all in recent months. It is very nice to cleanse the dirt of the day from your face, but too much of that is harm. Applying excessive cleansing to your face with skin care products harms the skin barriers more than you think. Even the mildest cleanser can remove lipids that moisturize and protect your skin. If you clean your skin with soapy or perfumed cleansers, you will embrace skin problems. Therefore, in your daily cleansing routine, focus on cleansers with a cream formula so that you do not lose moisture to your skin.

Physical or chemical exfoliants… It is very important not to overdo it with either option. Skin scrubs and exfoliants are ideal for removing dead skin, regenerating skin cells and achieving a radiant appearance, but active ingredients can cause irritation on your skin when overused. If you feel that your skin barrier is weakening, you can take a break from scrub products and turn to paper masks. Paper masks that moisturize and nourish your skin with vitamins restore your skin to its optimum health. Paper masks that allow your skin to regenerate, strengthen skin barriers.

If you find that your skin is tight and red, you may need to check the skin care products you use routinely. If the products you use contain perfume or even natural essential oils, these ingredients may weaken your skin barriers. If you take a break from perfume-containing skin care products during this period, you will see the differences in your skin. Perfumed skin care products can disrupt the natural balance and barrier function of the skin. If you are experiencing irritation or discomfort, we recommend that you turn to fragrance-free care products. Rich and nourishing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, omega fatty acids, ceramides or niacinamide strengthen the skin barriers and accelerate the recovery of your face!

SKIN PH VALUES
Acid and perfume-containing products can damage the skin barriers. These products, which cause the barriers to be dry and irritated by destroying the natural oils on your skin, also affect the alkaline values of your skin. The pH balance of your skin is very important for natural regeneration and cells. If you find that your skin is dry and irritated, we recommend that you take a break from ingredients such as salicylic acid for a while.

Damage to the skin barriers causes a serious drop in humidity rates. Moisturization, one of the most important steps of the care routine, is especially important when the skin barriers are weakened. While your skin loses more water and moisture than normal, you can balance the moisture levels in your skin barriers with moisturizers containing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid.
