Barrier function and aging. More good news.

As you know, the skincare industry loves to scare people into buying lots of stuff.

Perhaps the largest category in skincare is “moisturizers.”
No one debates that you need a moisturizer.

Most YouTube experts will tell you that you need three features in a moisturizer:
1. water retention or humectant – takes water from the atmosphere
2. occlusion – limits water evaporation from the skin
3. emolience – they generally throw this in to show that they are on top of things.

But does the skin generally need a moisturizer? To combat aging.
This episode gives a clear answer to this question.

There are of course times when your skin begs for a moisturizer and is happy to get one. Listen to your skin.
Not your skincare influencer.
