As far as anti-aging ingredients go, ceramides have a proven record but are often overlooked.
In this video, find out more about what ceramides are, how they interact with your skin and how you can include it in your skincare routine.
What are ceramides?
Ceramides are naturally occurring, fatty parts of the skin’s outer protective layer. Also known as a lipid (fat), ceramides make up about 50% of the skin’s natural barrier system – along with cholesterol and other free fatty acids.
In its essence, the skin’s natural barrier prevents moisture loss and protects it from external environmental damage. The function of ceramides in this is to act like a ‘glue’, holding the barrier system together.
What benefits does ceramide offer?
When there is a loss of ceramide content or production in the skin, our natural barrier gets weaker. This means that it would be harder for the skin to retain its moisture, which can then lead to dehydration, sensitivity, roughness, wrinkles, redness, and/or irritation.
Skin care products containing ceramides help to reinforce the skin’s barrier and increases the skin’s hydration giving you a plumper, smoother and firmer-feeling skin.
Are ceramide products appropriate for every skin type?
Just like hyaluronic acids, ceramides fall under the category of “skin-replenishing” ingredients.
Ceramides as suitable for all skin types because they are naturally part of the skin. Even for the most sensitive, breakout-prone, or oily skin, ceramides provide a lot of skin-replenishing benefits.
