THE S.O.S COLLECTION

WHAT IS THE SKIN BARRIER FUNCTION?

The top layer of skin is the ‘stratum corneum’ and not even a fraction of a millimetre thick. It’s made up of dead skin cells, fatty acids, cholesterol, lipids and ceramides which hold skin cells together. This external layer has an important role to play and forms the protective barrier to the body’s largest organ.

Primary functions of the skin barrier:

  • Improve hydration by keeping natural moisture locked in skin cells.

  • Protect the body from external toxins such as pollution, bacteria and harmful UV rays.
     

STRENGTHEN YOUR SKIN’S BARRIER

Your body has its own barrier function for repairing itself. When skin cells don’t receive the active nutrients they need for performance, the barrier function becomes damaged. Whatever your symptoms, the result is the same; your protective dermal layer is damaged impacting the barrier function, and this could be harming your health. This damage can display in any or all of the following symptoms on your skin:

  • Dry

  • Stinging

  • Blotchy

  • Itchy

  • Cracks

  • Inflammation

  • Infections

  • Bumps under the skin

  • Breakouts and acne

RESCUE YOUR SKIN

The S.O.S (Save Our Skin) range from Dermal Hub has been specially formulated to treat and prevent the negative effects caused by environmental factors, including symptoms caused by mask-wearing. Applying S.O.S products can help form a protective barrier on your skin against the everyday environment and excessive friction of daily mask-wearing.

S.O.S skin care products provide simple solutions in the form of day and night creams to help restore your skin’s natural barrier. These formulations can help boost your skin’s natural barrier by helping skin cells bond together.

UNMASKING THE EFFECTS OF ISO ON YOUR SKIN

Wearing a mask has become the new norm for our daily routines. 'Maskne' is a real problem that many people are experiencing.​ While masks are being used to help stop the spread of COVID-19, few people are talking about the damage that mask-wearing can do to our skin.

How do masks affect my skin?

Masks can create a humid environment where uncirculated air gets trapped. These conditions under the mask can cause the formation of red pimples and blood vessels on your cheeks and nose. To protect your skin from the effects of mask-wearing, it’s vital to boost your natural skin barrier.

I received SOS Day and Night Kit product 2 weeks ago it's a MUST HAVE PRODUCT. The service was amazing! I received my products within 2 days. SOS is part of my regular skin routine I apply morning and night and have noticed great results. I suffer from acne and redness and I can already see a reduction of my redness and blemishes. I'm looking forward to seeing more results over the next few weeks. AMAZING PRODUCT 💕

PROBLEMS CAUSED BY A DAMAGED SKIN BARRIER FUNCTION

Often, we look at sensitised skin as a bit of an inconvenience or turn to skincare products to try and cure it, but there’s a lot more going on. You may have noticed the signs that your skin’s protective layer is damaged, but what does this mean for your body?

SENSITISED SKIN

 

Sensitised skin means the barrier function is weak and fails to work efficiently to keep toxins out and moisture in. Toxins and allergens found in the environment in which the barrier function protects against, are then penetrating the deeper layers of the skin causing irritation on a cellular level.


With a weakened barrier function, environmental toxins (such as those found in pollution) can even enter your system. A weak barrier function also increases the risk of long-term chronic skin conditions such as dermatitis, psoriasis and eczema.

What damage can wearing a face mask do to my skin?

Do I stop using my active skin care if I use S.O.S products?


If you are experiencing Maskne, redness, irritation and blemishes you will need to stop all active ingredients. The cause of these symptoms are due to a compromised skin barrier, therefore active ingredients will further irritate the skin. S.O.S is designed to restore skin barrier function and treat the negative symptoms of Maskne and environmental factors. When barrier function and skin health has improved, you may consider introducing particular activities into your S.O.S skin care regime.

To restore barrier function and improve skin health and hydration, S.O.S benefits will be seen in 2 to 4 weeks.
