Ceramides are naturally occurring lipids found in the skin and play a critical role in the barrier function of our skin. If our skin barrier becomes compromised moisture loss and skin irritation is eminent. As we age, ceramides are also depleted from the skin and our skin can become drier and lose that smooth healthy glow of our youth. Using a product containing ceramides replenishes the ceramides in our skin that we have lost over time or due to environmental stressors. Using products with ceramides can also greatly help the treatment of eczema. A few of our favorite products that contain ceramides are Elizabeth Arden Ceramide Time Complex Moisture Cream, Kinerase Pro Therapy Ultra Rich Night Repair, and Topix SRS Pro-Ceramide Barrier Repair.
