The skin barrier ensures balance in the skin.
It is very important to keep our skin barrier intact. If the balance is disturbed, this can result in irritated skin, redness, rougher skin or shiny skin. Overexposure to sunlight (UV) can also cause an imbalance in pigmentation, and pigment spots may develop. Melanin is formed by the melanocytes to protect the skin against UV rays. In the case of overexposure to UV rays, the melanocytes can give an overreaction that is due to an excess of pigment (melanin), which is also distributed unevenly (Hyperpigmentation).
