Ceramides

Ceramides achieved a status of a skincare hero that tackles everything from dullness to dryness and sensitivity.

Here’s everything you need to know before you buy from your new favourite ingredient and K-Beauty brands that offer amazing Korean ceramide skincare products.

What are ceramides?

Ceramides are lipids (in other words fatty acids) in the skin that help to maintain the skin barrier and retain moisture and hydration. They makeup over 50% of the skin’s composition and play important role in protecting your skin against environmental stressors and keeping it plump and youthful.

Can ceramides help skin?

Definitely yes! Ceramides help to re-construct that protective barrier so skin’s more resilient and less sensitised over time.

They play an important role in keeping the skin’s structure strong and healthy by bonding the cells together on the surface forming a solid protective layer. That layer holds onto hydration and protects against damage giving the skin its plump, hydrated, balanced appearance. This helps prevent moisture loss and the visible damage from environmental stressors.

What results can I expect from a ceramide-enriched product?

Ceramides are among the worthiest of opponents when it comes to battling dry skin. Thankfully, ceramide-based products are widely available.

Properly formulated ceramide skincare products help strengthen your skin’s barrier and improve hydration. This results in smoother and firmer skin reduced fine lines and wrinkles and less irritation.

Can I use ceramide cream every day?

Ceramides can be applied day or night, typically in the serum step of your regimen. They can also be used throughout the day.

Are ceramide pores clogging? Is it good for oily skin?

Ceramides on their own, won't clog the skin. However, it is always good to be mindful of the formulas you choose for your skin and what are you mixing it with. If your skin is prone to acne and clogged pores, it is worth investing in a lighter oil-free ceramide skincare product rather than a thicker cream.
