1. Treat your skin like you would a baby’s skin
Think about it: you would never wash a baby’s face with harsh soap twice a day nor scrub it with grains, so why would you do this to your delicate skin barrier? Once the skin barrier is compromised, it becomes even more fragile than it used to and simply cannot withstand harsh treatments or absorb any useful skincare products you slather on. The best way to approach this is to keep everything really gentle and give it enough time to repair.
