At Mountain Sun Massage & Skin Care our guiding skin therapy philosophy is to always strengthen and repair the "Barrier Layer". All healthy, youthful skin has one thing in common: an intact stratum corneum also called the barrier layer. Before you can treat the skin for acne, sun damage, wrinkles and sags, you must have a healthy barrier!
Barrier Repair: the Key to Healthy Skin
All our facial therapies and home care products work together to
- Prevent exposure to barrier damaging chemicals, products and environments
- Protect your skin structures from environmental and internal aggressors
- Correct any damage to the barrier with repairing, hydrating and most importantly anti-inflammatory ingredients
Here is a list of some of the most common skin conditions that are greatly improved by a healthy intact barrier layer.
- Skin sensitivity and skin diseases
- Allergic response
- Chronic Inflammation
- Hyperpigmentation and skin discoloration
- Pore size
- Scaling and Flaking
- Ashiness and dry skin
We work to repair your barrier layer and protect it from further harm. What does that mean to you? Anti-oxidant rich formulations that protect your skin from dryness, inflammation, sensitivity, aging and age spots to start. Our barrier repair moisturizers and serums include ingredients that actively replace essential skin components or trigger your own skin to create a better barrier layer from the inside out.
