Just like the intestines, our skin needs both "good bacteria" and "bad bacteria". When in balance, these microorganisms form the skin microbiome that provides the first line of defense against environmental and toxic substances, and harmful organisms.
However, when the balance is off, the skin will become prone to eczema, rosacea, inflammation, acne and sensitivity. The skin’s lipid barrier will also become fragile, which could exacerbate said issues.
Therefore, the first step to improve sensitivity and inflammations, is to target the skin's microbiome and lipid barrier.
The easily absorbed and anti-bacterial Marie Reynolds London Butter Balm is enriched with botanicals abundant in prebiotics (food for the good bacteria), vitamins, antioxidants and essential fatty acids to nourish the skin, strengthen and repair barrier function, and reduce inflammations, irritations and redness.
The multi-functional balm can be used as an intensive hydration mask, as a night treatment or as a healing balm to intensely soothe and nourish the skin. Especially suitable for dry and irritated skin, barrier-damaged skin, as well as skin post-procedure, such as lasers treatment.
