Why Ceramides should be your skin's BFF
Oct 06, 2022
October is here, meaning you only have a few good days left before the seasonal cold chills come and take control of your skin.
You know what we're talking about if you have dry or sensitive skin. With autumn and winter, your skin spirals into the misery of the "dry river bed" look, itchiness, peeling, inflammation, and the like.
While there are many words for these nasty pests, the solution is simple: Ceramides.
Ceramides are lipid molecules in the outermost layer of your skin, also known as the skin barrier. Ceramides glue other skin cells to create a strong barrier that prevents transepidermal water loss. Adding Ceramides to your skincare routine can keep your skin hydrated and away from the annoyance of having dry skin.
But that was just scratching the surface of what Ceramides can do. Let's dig deeper, shall we?
The benefits of Ceramides
Making up to 50% of the skin barrier, Ceramides are crucial in helping you achieve supple, healthy skin.
- Nourish the skin barrier
You can think of Ceramides as the stitches to your cozy winter coat. The more Ceramides the skin barrier has, the stronger the skin barrier is, and the healthier and more resilient your skin is to external factors like bacteria and environmental stressors. This can also translate to less sensitive skin, less inflammation, and breakouts.
- Lock-in skin moisture
Ceramides lock the skin moisture inside, ensuring the water stays and quenches your skin's thirst instead of evaporating. Ceramides can seal hydration for a long time without irritating the skin as a skin-identical cell with a lipid body.
- Minimize the look of fine lines
Dehydrated skin can exaggerate the look of fine lines. Ceramides help to achieve the look of supple, youthful skin by boosting skin hydration to plump up the creases.
Are Ceramides vegan? Pregnancy-safe?
Ceramides are safe to use for our vegan friends. Many cosmetic companies have chosen vegan Ceramides not only to honor the customer value but also to be kinder to the environment. It's by no means that vegan Ceramides are gimmicks or less effective than other kinds.
For mama-to-be, rest assured, Ceramides aren't pregnancy-avoiding ingredients. They are safe to use during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.
We still recommend consulting a doctor to be safe, as there might be other ingredients in the Ceramide product that you might miss.
