Reading time: 8 min

Is there a way to keep your skin healthy? It is a usual concern because the strong rays of the sun, as well as air pollution and the environmental toxins, can really harm your skin. If you do not maintain a regular skincare routine and shield yourself from daily dirt and sunlight, your skin may become thinner and more damaged, potentially leading to affections or disease, like skin cancer in the future.

According to research, there's a significant increase in skin cancer cases due to factors like our diet, lifestyle, and inadequate skin care practices. So, what is the solution? How do I prevent and fix that damage? 

JessBeauty is here to assist you through this blog. How can you protect your facial skin?Let's start! 

What is a Skin Barrier? 

The top layer of your skin is a powerful barrier that defends your body. It consists of small cells that are closely packed together. These cells work together to create a protective barrier that protects from dangerous elements such as …

  • Pollutants 
  • Toxins
  • UV radiation

How can you determine if your skin barrier is damaged?

The skin barrier works like a guard to shield your skin from different problems. If it is damaged it will not be able to act as a shield. Some symptoms are:

  • Dryness.

  • Dehydration.

  • Breakouts.

  • Rough or discolored patches.

  • Transparent skin layer.

  • Acne.

  • The purple and red lines are even more noticeable.

  • In the most serious cases skin cancer, skin rashes, and other skin diseases. 

    How to Maintain and Protect Your Skin’s Natural Barrier

    Immerse yourself in the universe of Jess Beauty skincare essentials that are designed to protect and maintain your skin barrier. 

    Our wide range of specific solutions is designed to target your skin's outer layer while gently cleansing, moisturizing, repairing damage, and even reducing symptoms of aging.

    Let’s look at four tips that can help.

    Tip 1. Simple Skincare Routine

    Following a daily skincare routine with an excess number of products, can unintentionally compromise your skin barrier. To find out which products are most important and effective, consult a dermatologist. 

    Also, when exfoliating, pay close attention to which exfoliants work better for your skin. The American Academy of Dermatology suggests using a soft cloth and a gentle chemical exfoliator for people with darker skin tones and sensitive skin. Some washes and brushes can potentially harm your skin's protective layer unexpectedly.

    Tip 2. Shield Yourself From The Sun

    When you go out in the sun, you need to protect your skin from UV rays, apply it just 15 minutes before sun exposure to prevent damage. Before you head out, here are some extra precautions to take.


    1. Use a hat or some type of clothes that give coverage to your skin, in the face and in the body. Always apply sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher. 

    2. Wear UV-protective sunglasses.

    3. Check the UV Index, a value of 8-10 indicates a high danger of sun damage from unprotected exposure and you need to be more cautious.

    Tip 3. Symptoms of aging

    Each one of our products, including our moisturizer, repair serum, and refreshing cleanser, works to strengthen your skin's natural defenses. You can be sure that JessBeauty is giving your skin the love it needs, it’s preserving the skin's health and improving the skin barrier.

    Tip 4. Obtain Skin-Healthy Lifestyle 

    Your skin barrier gets better with each step you care for it. For a skin-healthy lifestyle, consider the following advice: 

    • To maintain the moisture levels of your skin, drink plenty of water. 
    • Start the morning with exercise, for healthy circulation which nourishes the skin.
    • Consume a well-balanced diet full of antioxidants, minerals, and healthy fats.

    Among the items to stay away from for your skin barrier are: 

    • Avoid going outside on extreme sun exposure.
    • Keep away from polluted areas
    • Avoided large amounts of coffee or alcohol.
    • Less to no smoking 
    • Excessive consumption of red meat or highly processed meals. 
    • It's better to take less medication. 

    Tip 4. Maintain Melanin Level 

    Furthermore, melanin is an element found in our skin that protects it from damaging UV rays. The pigment is a natural sunscreen that is both a barrier and a filter that can block UV rays. 

    Melanin reduces the risk of DNA damage and neutralizes free radicals produced by UV exposure, which decreases the chance of developing skin cancer. 

    Maintaining appropriate levels of melanin in your skin helps to retain its general health.

    Tip 5. Add Plant Oils and Ceramides To Skincare Routine 

    According to the 2018 research, some plant oils are very beneficial in helping to repair your skin barrier and make it hydrated.  Some oils to use:

    • Rosehip oil
    • Coconut oil
    • Almond 
    • Jojoba
    • Argan

    These oils have antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant elements. JessBeauty offers you a variety of skincare products that are paraben-free and are made of the plant oil ingredients.

    Other Chemical exfoliants that help to repair your skin barrier that are used in many skincare products are 

    • Ceramides
    • Hyaluronic acid 
    • Glycerin 
    • Petroleum jelly

    Additionally, ceramides play a vital role in repairing skin barrier function and also improve dryness, and itchiness. Ceramide-rich moisturizers improve your skin barrier and are beneficial for acne-prone skin. 

    Furthermore, consider using moisturizers containing hyaluronic acid or glycerin. These ingredients reduce water loss from the skin and provide moisture to the skin barrier. Feel free to try Jess Beauty's moisturizer. By incorporating these skincare ingredients into your routine, you can help maintain a healthy and resilient skin barrier.
