The next step is to find products that could help repair your skin. The key is adding and then retaining moisture and using great (and mild) ingredients.
The ingredients to look for when looking at repairing your skin are:
- Ceramides – lipids that help form the skin barrier and retain moisture.
- Hyaluronic acid – a magnet for moisture to keep you hydrated.
- Fatty acids – these help produce the skin’s natural oil barrier.
Having spent some time on my own healing process, I have a few products I would always reach for. My top 3 are:
This contains ceramides and hyaluronic acid to deliver a surge of hydration – plus it’s incredibly affordable.
Another affordable one, this non-sticky hyaluronic is a simple, fast moisture–binding product. Perfect to help the healing process.
Full of lipids, this recovery balm helps your skin strengthen the skin barrier while you sleep for getting things back on track.
