What it really is.
This condition affects all of us—no matter the skin type. This stems from a weakened skin barrier, which enhances the skin’s permeability. It means our skin transports what’s inside out, and letting what’s outside in. We lose hydration while we take in more free radicals and environmental stressors. TEWL also rapidly ages the skin, as it does not get enough nutrition to keep itself moist and youthful.
