Time to put your learning hats on 🎓!
What is the “protective skin barrier” and “acid mantle”??
Your skin cells are the bricks and the skin’s lipids are the mortar. When it’s healthy and strong, this wall keeps moisture in and keeps out harmful pollutants, allergens, dust, fumes, UV rays and pathogens etc
When your skin’s wall gets cracks in it, these pollutants can squeeze through and your healthy skin can quickly become dry, sensitive and irritated. Impaired skin barrier function and the dry skin that comes with it are main causes of uncomfortable skin problems like atopic dermatitis and eczema.
Now zoom in on the microscope a little 🔬👩🏻🔬
The acid mantle is the top layer of your skin. This acidic layer is the first line of defense for your skin’s protective barrier.
Your acid mantle is a balanced little micro flora ecosystem made up of oily secretions from the sebaceous glands, water from perspiration in the sweat glands, which exhibit a powerful bactericidal effect and secretions from our natural moisturising factor, this combination keeps out viruses, bacteria and other harmful naughties.
A healthy and balanced acid mantle means soft, smooth and supple skin. But skin with an unbalanced acid mantle is prone to lots of skin conditions like acne, dryness, irritation and sensitivities.

Happy Saturday friends 🙌🏼😃 hope you all are having a great weekend!
Today I finally decided to try the Dr Oracle 21;Stay A-thera peeling stick that I won in a giveaway from @kbeautybyjinhee and @finino in December. The lovely Nora aka @finino I also believe is the swedish distrubutor of this this product 👌
The peeling stick is from @droracle_official and looks like a big q-tip/cotton swab. It's drenched in a mix of 6% of AHA + BHA, bamboo water, tea tree oil and is suitable for all skin types. It's especially great for people with sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate my skin at all.
So what's my first impression of this product then? Well, I have to say I'm actually really impressed with it and I could actually see some results right away. My skin feel so smooth, glowy and hydrated and I didn't get that dry feeling that many exfoliators sometimes can give me. I'm really looking forward to see the results after I've tried it a few more times (after this I have 14 left to try). I like the idea of a stick that is alreay soaked in product and that is easy to bring with me when I travel.
So happy I got the chance to try this product 😍😄
