Hey babes! In today’s blogpost we’re diving into Ceramides and all their revitalizing properties.
What are ceramides?
Ceramides help restore the skin by moisturizing and strengthening the skin barrier. They are lipids that your skin produces naturally, which become depleted with age, extreme weather, harsh cleansers, and hot water.
Ceramides are important because they are thought to be the glue that holds skin cells together, protecting the skin and body from external influences.
What type of skin benefits the most from Ceramides?
All skin types can benefit from this ingredient! It works so well with so many skin types because it’s needed for all skin. Without Ceramides, the skin barrier becomes vulnerable, causing trouble.
What benefits does it have on the skin?
Ceramides are healing, protecting, and moisturizing agents. This ingredient strengthens and restores the skin barrier to protect it from injury. Generally speaking, healthy skin can heal faster when the skin barrier is strong. Symptoms such as blemishes, dryness, redness, dark spots, etc., tend to disappear quickly.
