Skin Barrier Health
Healthy skin has a thriving microbiome and balanced pH.
Our skin is our body’s first line of defense, and we need to arm it with powerful, bioavailable nutrients. As our largest organ, it’s critical we nourish and fortify our skin barrier so it can do what nature intended it to do best: serve as protection between your body and the outside world. How do you know if your skin barrier is performing at its highest potential? By the way it looks and feels. The healthiest skin feels supple and has a natural shimmer.
Millions of bacteria, viruses, and fungi make up our skin flora. Research has found that good skin bacteria has the power to boost our energy, mood, immune system, and to improve the health and appearance of our skin. A balanced and healthy skin microbiome acts as a barrier against environmental pollution, dirt, sweat, and UV damage.
Benefits of a balanced, thriving skin microbiome include:
1. Support of skin barrier function
2. Defense against infection
3. Production of essential fatty acids, vitamins, nutrients, and molecules that support skin health
4. Reduction in inflammation
5. Regulation of immune response
6. Healthy cell exfoliation and regeneration
7. Reduction in appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation
8. Hydration resulting in soft, supple skin
S H I M M E R C H E F formulas are naturally slightly acidic to help recalibrate and restore the skin's acid mantle pH balance. The acid mantle is a thin barrier on the surface of your skin that helps maintain its slightly acidic nature to protect itself from bacteria including harmful microbes and damaging free radicals.
