How Protecting the Skin Barrier Is Taking On a New Meaning in 2020 As We Spend More Time Inside
A blend of sunflower, jojoba, avocado, olive, meadowfoam, baobab, and coconut oils deliver nutritional lipophilic compounds to the skin. “These active botanicals not only add essential fatty acids to the skin’s surface, but they also have a high antioxidant content that can protect and correct against oxidation and UV cellular damage from the sun,” says Schneider.
Red ginseng, on the other hand, helps Whal Myung’s photo-protective Anti-Oxidant Rejuvenation Serum ($48) deliver its 122-year-old recipe of medicinal herbs to the skin while strengthening barrier function and even reducing hyperpigmentation. Similarly, cult-favorite Klur Symmetry Fluid ($68) creates a breathable shield of antioxidants that builds resilience against environmental stressors as red algae boosts barrier function by replenishing the skin’s natural water reservoir.
