What is Ceramide?
Ceramides play an incredibly crucial role in the barrier function of the skin.
- Restores the skin barrier: A loss of ceramides, whether due to aging, the overuse of exfoliants and harsh soaps that strip the skin, or something else, causes a compromised stratum corneum—or the protective barrier of the skin—and allows bacteria to enter through tiny cracks and cause irritation. Replenishing those ceramides will keep the barrier healthy and functioning properly.1
- Locks in moisture: A healthy skin barrier seals the moisture in and prevents water loss from occurring, which causes dry skin.
- Protects the skin: Ceramides work to protect the skin against environmental aggressors and pollution, according to Jaliman.
- Makes skin more tolerable to active ingredients: Jaliman and Levin add that ceramides also work to protect from the chemicals that we put on our skin that tend to cause irritation.
- Reduces visible signs of aging: As Levin explains it, the thinning and aging of the skin is not only due to the loss or breakdown of collagen and elastin (proteins in your dermis), but your skin barrier (your epidermis) is also incredibly important in protecting and maintaining the rest of the skin.
Helps with inflammatory skin conditions: When the skin’s stratum corneum is not working properly, then the skin can get dehydrated and lead to transient epidermal water loss (TEWL), according to Levin. This makes the skin dry, inflamed, and at risk for inflammatory skin conditions like eczema, rosacea, acne, and psoriasis.2
Softens and smoothes the skin: Common traits of a compromised skin barrier are dryness, flakiness, and fine lines from dehydration. Restoring lost lipids may increase hydration in the skin and improve the overall look and feel.
How to use: After applying serum, take a moderate amount of balm and apply to the entire face. Gently pat for better absorption.
