HOW TO RESUSCITATE COMPROMISED BARRIER

The skin barrier serves an important role in protecting us from toxins, bacteria, infection and other DNA-damaging elements. Today, however, compromised barrier is more prevalent than ever before due to environment, overuse of skin care products with harsh ingredients, medications, autoimmune diseases and even aggressive professional treatments.


When the barrier becomes compromised, a number of challenges arise including increased dryness and irritations, suscepti­bility to bacteria and even more serious issues like rosacea and acne. How do you restore the barrier to optimum health? With the right mix of ingredients, professional treatments and proper home care.


Ingredients such as organic stem cells, encapsulated retinald­ehyde, epidermal growth factors, L-arginine, rose water extract, and hyaluronic acid, to name few, support hydration, repair and rejuvenation, reduce inflammation, increase ATP energy and stimulate healthy cell prolifer­ation. These ingredients, found in the new Rhonda Allison signature treatments –– The CBR Facial and The CBR Peel –– support skin resuscitation in the treatment room and beyond, and are especially helpful for treating sensitive, reactive, rosacea-prone skins, or for those who have overused AHA’s or prescription-strength topicals and need repair.
