This Cream Will Improve Your Skin Barrier in Just Two Hours

The beauty industry is no stranger to the hydrating powers of hyaluronic acid and glycerin, but now there's a new star ingredient in town, and that's mushrooms. The fungus touts many benefits, like antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, that help keep the skin soothed and moisturized.

Herbar is at the forefront of fungi and adaptogenic skincare, and its latest "Barrier Cream" is one of a kind. Herbar believes that beauty can be healing and describes itself as a solution for harmonizing, restoring and rebalancing your skin and well-being.

The cream combines the "cushion-like" feel of a cream with the power of a balm for intense hydration. The formula includes a five-ceramide complex that aids in "supplementing and reinforcing the natural ceramides in your skin," as described by the brand.

Dry skin doesn't stand a chance against the "Barrier Cream," as it can improve the skin barrier by 59% in just two hours, according to the brands clinical results. The cream's silky, non-comedogenic and fast-absorbing formula works to smooth fine lines, even out skin tone and calm irritation.

Along with mushrooms, the cream combines ashwagandha, schisandra, split gill, fu ling and chaga to help fight acne and strengthen the skin barrier. It should be applied to the face and neck as the last step in the skincare routine. Herbar's love and appreciation for its star ingredient, mushrooms, extends to its partnership with Foundation Fungi, which works as a fungi conservation group.

The "Barrier Cream" can be purchased on the brand's website.
