Ceramides - The Skincare Hero
If your skin is desert dry no matter what you throw at it, or your sensitive skin is always behaving badly, it could be down to lacking in one skincare ingredient: ceramides. A damaged skin barrier can lead to redness and inflammation, dryness, skin feeling tight and itchy and even acne, so it's crucial to take care of it as much as possible.
Although, not the latest trending skincare ingredient, it's one we should all incorporate into our routine. Similar to collagen, our natural ceramide levels deplete over time. Essentially, ceramides bond skin cells together to create a barrier within the skin’s surface: a protective layer that plumps the skin and locks in moisture..
A damaged skin barrier can lead to redness and inflammation, dryness, skin feeling tight and itchy and even acne, so it's crucial to take care of it as much as possible.
Although normal to lose ceramides, it's not ideal. Things like cold weather, overexposure to the sun and being overly enthusiastic with exfoliators, can disrupt the skin's pH balance, affecting your ceramide levels.
Thankfully there are some great products formulated to restore your skin barrier and replenish ceramide levels.
