Mitigates side-effects such as dryness and irritation that can be caused by potent antioxidants such as retinoic acid and high dosage retinoids as well as acne treatments such as dermatologist prescribed benzyl peroxide etc. The skin’s natural barrier, known as the stratum corneum, forms an effective shield, restricting environmental stressors such as toxins, allergens and pathogens from penetrating the skin, protecting from chemical damage, abrasion and reducing the escape of moisture. This dynamic natural barrier system can adjust it's composition in response to external stressors; fortifying its defence and replenishing damage. However, it relies on hydration as a catalyst for many of its functions and dehydrated skin results in sub-optimum skin barrier function, hindering its ability to protect and repair. The skin's natural barrier system is fundamental to maintain healthy skin.
A compromised stratum corneum is directly correlated to undesirable skin conditions such as sensitive skin, acne, dry skin, loss of elasticity and accelerated signs of ageing. Traditional acne treatments such as benzyl peroxide, retinoic acid and high dosage retinoids may result in dry skin and irritation. These side effects are one of the main factors for non-adherence to such treatments, leading to poor outcomes.
The La Clinica Essentials Hydrating Healing Serum contains soothing, nourishing and fortifying actives to assist the skin barrier. These cosmeceutical ingredients include Ceramide-NP, Panthenol, Hyaluronic Acids, Zinc Hyaluronate, Niacinamide, Oat Beta Glucan and Skinasensyl. These ingredients help reduce these side effects which may enhance the adherence and complement such treatments.
