Ceramides are lipids (fats) that are naturally found in our skin cells. They form 50% of the skin, playing an important role protecting and maintaining the skins barrier. Ceramides are what keeps our skin looking and feeling healthy.
With age the number of ceramides our body produces begins to decrease and external/environmental factors such as sun damage causes damage to them. Therefore, ceramides in skincare are becoming increasingly popular in restoring our skins natural barrier and replenishing the ceramides in our skin.

All you need to know about Ceramides
What are the skin benefits of Ceramides?
As Ceramides form 50% of our skin, when they become damaged it can reflect in our skin as the barrier is compromised. Signs of damage to the skin’s barrier due to lack of ceramides include redness, dryness, rough skin, irritation, dehydration, fine lines, and wrinkles. Thus, when using skincare with ceramides, they help to restore the skin and its barrier. The skin will feel hydrated, plump, radiant, and soft.
Do Ceramides help with wrinkles?
Yes, using skincare with ceramides can help with fine lines and wrinkles. Adding ceramides to your skincare routine will rebuild and restore your skins natural barrier, leaving it hydrated and plump reducing the appearance of wrinkles. When your skin is dry and dehydrated it can emphasise fine lines and wrinkles.
Do Ceramides help with acne?
Using ceramides can help with reducing inflammation and dryness that can come with acne, without aggravating acne. Also, acne-prone skin that suffers from clogged pores could benefits from using a light serum with ceramides instead of a heavy moisturiser.
