Break Through Skin Barrier Concerns at Face & Body Midwest


The skin's barrier goes through regular wear and tear—sources such as air pollution and our own bodies can be to blame for exacerbating damage to the barrier. At Skin Inc.’s Face & Body Midwest spa expo and conference, industry experts will take a look at some of the causes of skin barrier damage and how skin care professionals can protect clients' skin after the damage has been done.

It’s In Your Gut

If your clients are experiencing an inflammatory skin reaction or condition such as eczema, their gut may be to blame. Nutritional changes can help to manage yeast from escaping into the bloodstream and affecting the skin barrier. DermaMed’s Ginger Downey will discuss how this is possible and what other wellness changes can be made to improve clients’ qualities of life and skin in her advanced education course “Managing Candida and its Associated Inflammatory Skin Conditions” on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018.

Ready for Rosacea

Rosacea strikes clients in various ways. Learn how to calm the skin after barrier concerns, demodex mites and flare-ups occur during “Understanding Rosacea” on Sunday, Jan. 21, 2018, with GlyMed Plus’ Sarah Robbins. Go a step further in treating sensitive and rosacea-affected skin with powerful ingredients, presented by Rhonda Allison's Shannon Esau in "Game Changing Ingredients with Rhonda Allison" later that day.

The Air Out There

While the skin acts as a protector against air pollution, prolonged exposure can eventually harm the skin itself. Novel ingredients and products are being developed to meet rising consumer demand for anti-pollution skin care to help protect from the aging effects of air pollution—learn more about this from Melanie Timms of CBI Laboratories during her “Beauty in a Bubble: Understanding Anti-Pollution” advanced education session on Tuesday, Jan. 23, 2018.
