Barrier Repair Creams Are Your Secret to Hydrated, Youthful Skin

While most moisturizers improve your skin’s barrier (the outermost layer of skin), there’s a new generation of barrier repair creams that take it one step further. They hydrate, repair and smooth skin so it looks healthier and glowier, and they do so in a way that really lasts.

Instead of short-term hydration that evaporates after a few hours, these creams make a difference in the overall health of your skin. They help your cells hold onto moisture longer, making it appear — and, more importantly, act — younger. And they’re a must-have for anyone with sensitive, irritated or problematic skin.
