Signs of a Compromised Skin Barrier

... And How To Support It

October 11, 2023

The skin barrier, a term used to refer to the outermost layer of our skin, is your protective shield to the outside world. While keeping your skin barrier healthy is the secret to having a beautiful complexion, sometimes it can be difficult to keep underlying conditions of a compromised skin barrier in check.

At Epionce, we’re here to help you find ways to support your unique skin barrier, continually guided by a “do no harm” philosophy.

A Compromised Skin Barrier

For most people, dehydration, dryness, and a compromised skin barrier can occur from time to time. The key signs of a compromised barrier include the symptoms of uncomfortable skin such as visible redness, sensitivity, dryness and blemishes. The causes of a compromised skin barrier can range from environmental irritants, to using harsh ingredients on your skin, to aging.

With a barrier-first philosophy, our unique approach starts with a blend of key botanical ingredients to resurface healthier-looking skin. This can improve visible effects of aging by giving you smoother, more radiant skin. We also are highly selective toward our ingredients. Unlike many other products on the market, our products don’t contain harsh ingredients that irritate the skin or cause unnecessary dryness.

Support Your Skin Barrier

Renewal Calming Cream is clinically proven to replenish hydration and soothe irritation on both the face and body. It is expertly formulated with colloidal oatmeal, which gently calms dry, flaky, and uncomfortable skin. The cream also contains cholesterol and ceramides to optimize the skin barrier, making it ideal for skin that is resistant to sensitizers and preservatives found in standard moisturizers.

An Epionce fan-favorite, Intense Defense Serum is a highly advanced anti-aging serum using botanical sources of Vitamins A, B, C, D and E for healthier-looking skin. It’s a clinically proven serum that visibly improves signs of skin aging better than leading professional-strength serums.

Our Intensive Nourishing Cream contains maximum levels of key complexes to help reduce the visible appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin radiance.  An ultra-rich cream for both face and neck, Intensive Nourishing Cream provides superior hydration for all skin types, especially photoaged skin.
