Ceramides

Ceramides are lipids that are found naturally in high concentrations in the uppermost layer of skin. These lipids play a vital role in moisturising and hydrating skin. Aging and extreme temperatures can deplete your ceramide levels.

As you age, your skin’s ceramide levels begin to drop. By the time you are in your 30’s, you’ll have lost 40 percent of your skin’s natural ceramides. By your 40’s — 60 percent of your skin’s ceramides will be lost.

Anti-Aging Properties

When there’s a loss of ceramide in your skin, your natural barrier gets weaker making it harder for your skin to retain moisture. The lack of moisture can lead to dehydrated, rough, and wrinkled skin. Applying ceramides to your skin will help your skin replenish its lipids, strengthening your skin’s moisture barrier to counteract the signs of aging.
