Brand Spotlight: Real Barrier

Now that summer vacation is over and you’ve spent plenty of time basking in the sun, it’s time to let your skin and body recover. Korean skin care brand Real Barrier can help with that process since its products’ main goal is to help strengthen the skin barrier.  

Real Barrier was founded in 2015 with the intention of treating various skin concerns and maintaining a healthy skin barrier. The brand uses real technology with solution and safety as an approach to tackle different skin conditions. 

To reinforce the skin barrier and prevent it from getting damaged, Real Barrier uses an exclusive and patented MLE® (Multi-Lamellar Emulsion) skin barrier formula in its products. The majority of the MLE® formula consists of ceramides along with fatty acids and cholesterol. All of these ingredients combine together to create a lamellar structure that’s similar to that of a healthy skin barrier.

Real Barrier’s products work well for all skin types but if your skin type falls under dry, dehydrated or sensitive, then following a skin care regimen featuring Real Barrier products is the way to go. Real Barrier limits their use of any harsh ingredients that can compromise the skin including parabens, mineral oil and artificial fragrances.

If you have dry and sensitive skin, a skin care staple that should be on your vanity at all times is the Real Barrier Extreme Cream. This bestseller is formulated with the patented MLE® formula to protect and reinforce a weakened skin barrier. Thanks to ceramides, this cream will keep your skin hydrated for up to 72 hours, while also soothing and calming irritated skin thanks to the ingredients madecassoside, panthenol and allantoin. 

Are you dealing with blemishes? If so, the brand’s Control-T line should be on your radar. The Control-T Cleansing Foam is another popular skin care item from Real Barrier, particularly among those with oily and troubled skin. This cleansing foam controls excess sebum production and preserves the natural oil and balance of skin. Complete the cleansing routine then follow with the Control-T Toner, which helps lift and remove any traces of remaining dirt and soothes skin with its calendula, witch hazel, and tea tree extracts. 

The Cicarelief Cream, another one of the brand’s bestsellers, is also a great product to have on stand-by in case of emergencies, like when your skin suddenly breaks out. Apply a decent amount of the cream on troubled spots and allow it to heal overnight, thanks to its soothing formula of calamine powder, panthenol and madecassoside. The Cicarelief cream also forms a protective barrier on the outer skin layer to shield skin from external aggressors and further irritation.
