What is the barrier function?
It refers to the ability to stop foreign substances from entering the skin from the outside and to protect the skin’s moisture.
It prevents infection and disease caused by mites, dust mites, cell DNA damage from ultraviolet rays, chemical substances, bacteria, and viral infiltration. It also plays an important role in preventing water loss from the body and protecting healthy skin.
That barrier function requires a balance of the following three factors.
It is a mixture of sebum secreted by the sebaceous glands and sweat secreted by the sweat glands.
Too much or too little sebum can cause problems.
A special lipid between the cells of the stratum corneum.
These components, mainly ceramide and collagen, are used to neatly line up the stratum corneum and corneocytes.
◯NMF(Natural Moisturizing Factor)
It is an important substance located in stratum corneum cells and functions to enable the cells to retain moisture.
When these factors are in good balance, the moisture retention and barrier functions of the stratum corneum are realized, and the skin is kept healthy, fresh, and beautiful to the eye.
This helps to keep the skin healthy, fresh, and beautiful in appearance.
Skin problems due to reduced barrier function
So, what is the condition of the skin when the barrier function is impaired?
Causes of skin problems
Dry skin▶︎Loss of barrier function▶︎Itching▶︎Scratching
When the skin becomes dry, the barrier function becomes abnormal, causing irritation and allergic reactions. It also increases the risk of inflammation, itchiness, eczema, and dermatitis later in life. It can also lead to a loss of texture, poor turnover, and a worsening of the appearance of the skin.
