Applying an amazing moisturizer is a crucial component of every skincare routine. However, it becomes even more important as we age due to the fact that our natural ceramide production depletes at a rate of 1% each year as soon as we reach 20.
What are Ceramides?
One of the main functions of our skin is to protect us from harsh environments. This is possible through our bodies’ natural production of things like Ceramides. Ceramides are essentially lipids, or fats, that are found naturally in high concentrations in the uppermost layers of our skin. These play an important role in keeping the skin barrier hydrated. In simpler terms, Ceramides are the body’s natural moisturizer.
Young skin is able to produce Ceramides at a rapid rate, but unfortunately, as we get older that production slows down. Both sun damage and age become a large factor in how many Ceramides our body produces. Due to the decreased amount of Ceramides, our skin can start to show signs of aging. This is why it is so crucial to start taking care of our skin, and the earlier the better.
Ceramides in skincare.
Just because our skin slows down the production of Ceramides, doesn’t mean we need to stop thinking about them. Ceramides are found in a multitude of skin-care products and work on every skin type and can handle pretty much every issue. They work on every skin type because they are considered to be “Skin-Identical”. (This is because they occur naturally in skin!)
