Ceramides are the key component for healthy youthful skin. Belonging to a family of fats or lipids, they act as a barrier to protect the skin, preventing it from infection, dullness, or dryness. Ceramides can be natural, i.e. found in the outer layers of the skin, at the same time synthetic ceramides are also present, mostly in the form of moisturisers, toners, or serums.
Benefits Of Ceramides For Your Skin
1. Keep The Skin Healthy
Acne, psoriasis, or eczema skin conditions can all be attributed to low ceramides levels in the skin. Weather changes, exposure to heat, aging etc. can adversely impact the levels of ceramides in the skin, thereby leading to dry skin. They are quite literally the glue that holds your skin cells together to keep the skin intact and healthy.
2. Seal In Moisture
Ceramides provide a healthy skin barrier that locks in moisture and locks out harmful substances. They also prevent trans epidermal water loss, retaining adequate water levels in the skin to further prevent skin dryness and irritation.
3. Act As An Anti-Aging Supplement
No one likes fine lines and wrinkles, especially in this weather, when the skin is particularly dry, these lines and wrinkles are often more noticeable. Often with age, the naturally producing ceramide content starts depleting, leaving the skin dehydrated and prone to irritation and dryness. Ceramides provide an anti-aging remedy, which when used can help lower the lines and make the skin look radiant and young always.
4. Protect And Soften The Skin
Ceramides promote younger-looking skin, by protecting the skin from harsh environmental conditions and pollutants. Among the multiple benefits, it also helps restore the lost lipids that help increase skin hydration and leaves the skin soft, smooth and moisturised.
