Skincare 101: Ceramides
Now, we promise this isn’t going to be a complicated chemistry lesson, but ceramides should definitely be a part of your skin care vocabulary. Not sure what they are? Keep scrolling to learn more about them from what they are to which YELLE product is the perfect companion to them.
What are Ceramides?
Ceramides are lipids/fat that help provide barriers on the skin to retain its moisture and protect it from irritation. They are naturally produced by the skin and make up a large portion of the skin’s composition. As we age and increase exposure to certain environmental pollutants, ceramides decrease. The decrease in ceramides can contribute to dryness, loss elasticity, and skin aging.
If I am Losing Ceramides in My Skin Can I Get Them Back?
Yes, fortunately ceramides are one thing that can be replenished. There are topical options for ceramides as well as foods that are rich in ceramides. Foods like brown rice, spinach, and beets are all rich in ceramides.
The Perfect Match
Ceramides are naturally occurring fat molecules that are found in the cell membrane. They help hold the skin together, forming a kind of protection that helps to keep moisture in. Its production in the skin is affected by the aging process and exposure to harsh environment. When using a topical solution to address ceramide loss it is best to pair it with another hydrating booster to maximize results. The perfect skin duo is a topical ceramide paired with hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is also produced internally however it to decreases with age. Its function is to bind water and enhance moisture content in the tissue. Pair topical ceramides with YELLE Awakening Hydrating Serum to enhance skin plumping and ceramide activity. After Cleansing and then toning with the Awakening Milk & Honey Toner, apply YELLE Awakening Hydrating Serum followed by ceramide and a very lite layer of Awakening Daily Moisturizer. The Awakening Daily Moisturizer may also be used alternately in either the morning or evening if ceramides are a part of your skin care team.
At What Age Should I Start Using Ceramides?
It is never too early to start we think 30 is a great age to start using ceramides. If you are just getting started on your skin care journey, try incorporating a ceramide into your routine after you have gotten started with the YELLE Essential Kit for a period of 2-3 weeks.
