The key to dewy firm skin, which we are all in search of, is a healthy, supported skin barrier. If we think of the skin as a brick wall, skin cells are bricks and fatty acids called Ceramides are the mortar that holds them all together, keeping moisture inside and bacteria and other harmful materials out.
Though we naturally produce Ceramides, they can deplete as we age or get exposed to extreme temperatures (i.e. brutal winter cold and the dry heat we get from radiators), resulting in dry skin or eczema. By introducing them topically, we can counter that and ensure that skin stays firm, bouncy and smooth.
These powerhouse lipids are truly suitable for all skin types - they have an antinflammatory property that can soothe sensitive skin, increase elasticity and firmness in aging skin, and replenish the moisture stripped by harsh breakout treatments without clogging pores. We can’t think of a reason for Ceramides not to be in everyone’s skincare arsenal.

(this has Ceramides, not the hyaluronic acid) - Tackle wrinkles (even deep forehead lines!) with this serum that uses an extract of hibiscus seeds along with Ceramides, peptides and hyaluronic acid to increase collagen and elastin production.
