January is one of the coldest months of the year, depending on where your live, and a great time to think about skin barrier repair and skin health.
Understanding your skin type is essential for keeping a healthy skin barrier. You can invest a lot of money in products that are not right for your skin type, which may even aggravate your skin barrier. I’ve seen a lot of talk on social media about skin barrier repair, and I’m happy that people are talking about skin barrier health. After years of hearing, “if it’s not burning, it’s not working,” I’m so happy that the tide is turning toward skin barrier repair. Last week I talked about what the skin barrier means, why it’s so important and how to keep it healthy. This week I will review some products to help achieve that goal.

Virtual consultations from a licensed aesthetician allow you to get a personalized plan to help you understand how to meet your unique skin care goals. After filling out a questionnaire about your skin, a facetime or zoom call can determine what products will work best for your skin type. Please include any current products you are currently using in the consultation discussion. A treatment plan will give you a guide for your next steps. A few weeks later, a follow-up appointment will address any further questions you may have about your products and progress.
