Let's take care of our skin broken

For some time I have noticed that the number of customers with diseased and irritated skin is increasing. I observe an increased formation of pimples, pigment spots and various skin dermatoses. At the same time, it is noticeable that omnipresent providers on social media platforms and online stores are fighting a real battle when it comes to youthful or blemished skin.

It has become a marketing strategy to advertise cosmetic products with as many different active ingredients as possible. This makes me think. Because: many of these active ingredients could be omitted, contain harmful substances and even damage the skin.


There is a lot of false information circulating on the web. Cosmetics manufacturers are sprouting up like mushrooms and sometimes contradict each other. Often, buyers do not have sufficient knowledge about the ingredients and about their effect on the skin. Especially when the products are purchased on the Internet. Unfortunately, many customers also believe that more products and active ingredients also bring more. Hardly anyone questions where the active ingredients come from and whether they really benefit or rather harm.

In the morning we cleanse with AHAs, in the evening with PHAs or BHAs and in between retinol is used. And so that the whole thing is tolerated, it must be retreated with enough hyaluron and niacinamide. The fact that the active ingredients also come in different pH values and concentrations further exacerbates the problem.


Of course, in some cases it makes sense to add AHAs (alpha hydroxy acids) such as glycolic, almond and lactic acids or BHAs (salicylic acid) as well as retinol to the skin. These active ingredients dissolve cornifications, exfoliate the top layer of the skin, have an anti-inflammatory effect, kill bacteria, lighten the skin and soften acne scars. But the application should be done in moderation.

Not every skin type reacts the same and daily treatment is not necessary.

On the contrary, over time, the important and healthy skin barrier is damaged. Stimulating cell division again and again at a young age can take its revenge years later. The skin's condition may even worsen or it may age faster.

The bottom line is that chemical peels exfoliate one layer of skin after another, removing valuable proteins and ceramides. They destroy the valuable skin barrier and acid mantle. The consequences: The skin dries out, itches and flakes, is irritated and offers fungi, bacteria and viruses entry. In the worst case, eczema can even form - an absolute nightmare for our skin.

The best thing to do is to have a detailed skin analysis carried out and seek advice from a specialist. Because beautiful skin has a healthy skin barrier - we should not destroy it!
