The skin’s barrier is a gateway to health. By nurturing the skin’s barrier – gently cleansing it and ensuring it is well moisturised on a daily basis – you can help to maintain and repair not only the health of your skin, but the overall health of your body. It is as simple as that. The skin’s barrier acts as a protective shield from harmful microorganisms, UV radiation, allergens and irritants. When the barrier is compromised, acute inflammation is the result. Dry, tight, itchy, red skin are some of the signs.
If not addressed, over time, this can lead to chronic silent inflammation and in turn more systemic maladies, ranging from diabetes to heart disease. Thanks to Swissline, the skin barrier now has a new BFF: Cell Shock White Facial Cleansing Foam. This skin-friendly cleanser is formulated with a trio of moisturising agents to hydrate, calm and soothe the skin; amino acids to help strengthen the skin; and lactic acid to balance the skin’s microbiome and make the skin soft to the touch.
The brightening balm-gel cleanser foams on application to remove dirt, oil and make-up and leave skin feeling soft and smooth. Quartz Silica delivers a gentle micro-exfoliation action, while sugar polymer counteracts dryness. Antioxidant-rich botanicals Centella Asiatica and Ginkgo Biloba help to protect against environmental damage, enhance hydration, soothe and repair.
Skin-Friendly Cleansers and toners make the perfect skincare cocktail. Here’s to your health!
