We present a very short derivation of the integral representation of the two-sided Skorokhod reflection Z of a continuous function X of bounded variation, which is a generalization of the integral representation of the one-sided map featured in Anantharam and Konstantopoulos (2011) and Konstantopoulos et al. (1996). We also show that Z satisfies a simpler integral representation when additional conditions are imposed on X. Keywords: Reflection map; regulator map; Skorokhod problem.
