Did you know: The skin is the largest organ we own. Its primary role is to protect the body from the outside world, all in one flexible, airtight and watertight barrier. It’s also one of the most complicated to care for with more than 3,000 skin conditions known to dermatologists. This poses a huge dilemma to anyone looking to preserve the plump and supple quality of our skin as we age. There’s not much we can do to stop our biological clocks, but can we help reverse aging from the outside in?
Skin Lipid Depletion
A study conducted by unbiased dermatologists concluded that lipid depletion, along with sun damage, is a major culprit of aging skin. Lipids are the skin’s natural fats. They are naturally occurring and slow down production in the body over time. Their general function is to support hydration retention, repair damage and maintain firmness, bounce, texture and tone. Ceramides, fatty acids and cholesterol are the most prevalent and important lipids for the skin.
By the age of 30, we can lose up to 40% of lipids in our skin barrier. A reduction of lipids can cause collagen loss, fine lines, loss of elasticity, hyper-pigmentation, dullness, dehydration, dermatitis, dry and cracked skin, eczema, breakouts and keratosis pilaris. Other potential factors to a weakened protective barrier include stress, diet, smoking, alcohol consumption, environmental aggressors and pollution.
Restoring Skin Lipids
To address depletion, Skinfix formulated their award-winning Barrier+ Triple Lipid-Peptide Cream to restore natural fats—it’s like fillers for the skin! A clinical trial of Barrier+ extracted lipids from the skin barrier of participants at the beginning of the study and again at the end. In just 28 days, lipids increased by 23.6%. That’s nearly 1% per day!
Revive your skin with a hydrating dose of lipids, nutrients and high-performing actives and see the results for yourself!
