what’s in for skin: summertime 2024 skin care essentials

The hottest trends for skin care this summer are focused on protecting the skin’s barrier with a simple, straightforward routine that helps you get the results you want.

What is your skin barrier and why is it so important?

Your skin barrier is your body’s outermost layer, called the stratum corneum. A healthy skin barrier will help …

  1. defend your body against free radicals and environmental threats like allergens, pollution, extreme temperatures, and more
  2. regulate water loss, retain moisture, and keep you hydrated
  3. play a role in immunity and overall health
  4. protect against UV radiation
  5. transport vital nutrients to your skin

How can you protect and restore your skin barrier?

One of the most important ways you can protect and restore your skin barrier is by simplifying your skin care routine. A Bustle.com article quotes Dr. Margarita Lolis, M.D., a board-certified dermatologist and Mohs surgeon, saying, “Dermatologists have noticed an increase in skin barrier damage in recent years, as a result of applying too many products on the face.” Instead, create a straightforward, simple routine with no unnecessary steps or products and no harsh, irritating ingredients that can compromise skin health.

What’s in the skin care products you use is vitally important. Look for safe, skin-nourishing ingredients like pre+probiotics, which are essential for creating a resilient microbiome that helps protect and nourish healthy skin. Pure Haven’s prebiotic inulin and probiotic lactobacillus ferment lysate filtrate work together to promote a vibrant skin barrier, defend your skin’s microbiome, lock in moisture, maintain balance, and soothe and calm skin.

Don’t forget the skin below your face. You want to protect and restore your skin barrier from head to toe. You can do this with products containing plant oils, which are exceptionally effective in helping prevent moisture loss. Examples of helpful plant oils include jojoba, borage, sunflower, and black currant oils.
