Ceramides are a type of lipid molecule that are naturally present in the outermost layer of the skin, known as the stratum corneum. They play a crucial role in maintaining the skin's barrier function and overall health. Here's why ceramides are important in skincare: Skin Barrier Function: Ceramides are a key component of the skin's lipid barrier, which helps to prevent moisture loss and protect the skin from external irritants, allergens, and pathogens. They help to form a protective barrier that keeps the skin hydrated and healthy. Moisture Retention: Ceramides help to maintain the skin's hydration by preventing water loss from the skin's surface. They work in conjunction with other lipids and proteins in the stratum corneum to create a cohesive barrier that locks in moisture and keeps the skin hydrated. Repair and Regeneration: Ceramides play a role in skin repair and regeneration by promoting cell turnover and maintaining the structural integrity of the skin. They help to support the natural exfoliation process, which allows new, healthy skin cells to replace old, damaged ones. Protection Against Environmental Damage: Ceramides help to protect the skin from environmental damage caused by factors such as UV radiation, pollution, and harsh weather conditions. By strengthening the skin's barrier function, ceramides help to minimize damage from external stressors and maintain the skin's overall health and resilience. Anti-inflammatory Properties: Ceramides have been shown to have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to calm and soothe irritated or inflamed skin. They can help to reduce redness, itching, and sensitivity, making them beneficial for individuals with sensitive or reactive skin. Due to their importance in maintaining skin health and function, ceramides are commonly used in skincare products, particularly moisturizers, cleansers, and serums targeted at dry, sensitive, or aging skin. By replenishing ceramide levels in the skin, these products help to support the skin's natural barrier function and promote hydration, repair, and protection. Hope this helps x

I have combination skin so oily around the t zone area and really dry around the mouth area and I honestly feel like when we talk about combination skin we mainly talk about the sebum production. I try my best to really use products that are dry skin friendly without being too rich. Does anyone else have this issue?

Well last month I suffered from a severe allergy, doesn’t matter what I putted on my face it still hurts a lot. Also I’ve tried a few creams to moisture my face but didn’t work my skin was even itchier. So decided to go to a beauty specialist and speak about my problem she recommended me skin ceutical and after 3 weeks I can confirm I don’t have anymore allergy. I would like to mention now my skin became to normal and I don’t have anymore red itchy patches. I used skin ceuticals gentle cleanser and my favourite cream A. G. E. Interrupter advanced which made a huge difference additional I used the daily moisturiser to nourish my skin.
Skin ceutical deserve an award
