Damaged Skin Barrier

How do I know if I’ve damaged my skin barrier?? Am I supposed to feel irritation or will I have a huge break out? Can I get closed comedones from a damaged skin barrier?

Your skin will be sore and irritated, products will sting when you apply them. Redness, skin feeling hot, bouts of breakouts as well. Bacteria can enter more freely with a damaged or broken skin barrier leading to more breakouts and acne. Dry and flakey skin or peeling as well. it all depends on how badly damaged or how long it stays that way

Hi dear you will experience itchiness and redness and peeling of skin and if ur skin barrier is extremely damaged even if you sweat your skin will start to sting and u will also experience huge breakouts. Best is to use a mild cleanser,add in a hydrating toner and use a thick balm like moisturizer. It will take time but u will see results

When I damage my skin barrier, my skin is usually very red and sometimes even flaking or peeling in certain areas. It hurts to apply anything but my most gentle and basic skincare products.
