Improve skin barrier health

Improving skin barrier health is essential for maintaining healthy and radiant skin. A strong skin barrier acts as a protective shield, preventing moisture loss, environmental damage, and the penetration of harmful substances. Here are some tips on how to improve skin barrier health using Kinoko skincare and by making better choices in your daily life:

  1. Moisturize regularly: Moisturizing is crucial for maintaining a healthy skin barrier. Look for a moisturizer that contains ingredients like glycerin, high quality oils and shea butter. These help to attract and retain moisture, reinforcing the skin barrier and preventing dehydration. Kinoko Face Cream ticks every box and really does magic on the skin barrier. kombucha cosmetics

  2. Avoid over-exfoliation: Exfoliation is beneficial for removing dead skin cells, but overdoing it can weaken the skin barrier. Limit exfoliation to 1-2 times a week and choose gentle exfoliants such as chemical exfoliants  AHAs or  BHAs. Kinoko Face Wash is infused with a small amount of Citric Acid, which gives a light exfoliation just like other AHAs. It gently lift off the dead skin cells of your skin and make it more smooth and fresh.

  3. Incorporate antioxidants: Antioxidants help to neutralize free radicals, which can damage the skin barrier. Look for skincare products that contain antioxidants like vitamin C, vitamin E, green tea extract (Kombucha!), or birch sap. These can help strengthen the skin barrier and protect against environmental stressors. All Kinoko products are infused with the magical Kombucha, and especially our Miracle Face Toner will provide plenty of antioxidants for the skin. 

  4. Avoid harsh ingredients: Some skincare ingredients, such as alcohol, fragrances, and certain preservatives, can irritate and weaken the skin barrier. Check product labels and avoid these potentially irritating ingredients, especially if you have sensitive or reactive skin. fermented ingredients

  5. Hydrate from within: Drinking an adequate amount of water is essential for maintaining hydrated skin. Aim for at least 8 glasses of water per day and incorporate hydrating foods into your diet, such as fruits, vegetables, and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids.

  6. Be mindful of hot water: Hot water can strip the skin of its natural oils and compromise the skin barrier. Use lukewarm water when cleansing or showering, and avoid prolonged exposure to hot water.

  7. Feeding your skin microbiome with probiotics will prevent infections, but also maintain an optimal pH acid balance and moisturise the skin. That’s why people with inflammatory skin conditions get help from products containing kombucha and probiotics. Kombucha and probiotics attack skin problems such as eczema, acne and rosacea but of course people with small skin concerns will benefit from these magical ingredients.

  8. Prioritise a healthy and magical lifestyle: Alongside skincare, prioritize a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet, regular exercise, stress management, and adequate sleep. These factors contribute to overall skin health and support a robust skin barrier. AHA-kombucha face wash

Remember, everyone's skin is unique, so it's essential to listen to your skin's needs and make adjustments as necessary. Your own attitude and way of thinking affect the skin condition, which is why positivity and appreciating yourself are essential for the well-being of your skin. The skin is the largest organ of the body and it gives real-time information regarding the condition of our body – the well-being of the body and the mind are connected.
