What are Ceramides and why they are important for dry skin

If you experience dry skin (especially during the cooler months) then keep on reading as we have a must-have skincare ingredient that keeps your skin hydrated and healthy. 

Dry skin occurs when your skin loses too much oil. Dry skin is common and can affect anyone at any age. There are many courses for dry skin such as taking hot showers, using harsh skincare products, having food and drinks that suck out the natural oils/moisture from your skin. 

It is important to know the difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin.

  • Dry skin lacks natural oil production
  • Dehydrated skin just lacks water
Why You Should Include Ceramides In Your Skincare Routine – Innovist

What are Ceramides?

Ceramides help to strengthen and moisturise the skin's protective barrier. Which protects the skin from pollution, weather, dirt and other external factors. 

A ceramide is a lipid molecule that plays an important role in the water-retention function and the stratum corneum which is the outermost layer of skin. Ceramides are a powerful ingredient that holds skin cells firmly together. This helps to keep fluid in the skin but it also acts as a guard against external aggressors.

Why are Ceramides important?

Ceramides will help strengthen your skin’s barrier and deeply increase skin hydration which results in plumper, smoother, glowing skin. The strengthening properties of Ceramides can decrease the signs of skin sensitivity and reduce the signs of aging.
