Your skincare tips by Dr Dendy Engelmen
New York based Elizabeth Arden consulting dermatologist
What are Ceramides?
Ceramides are essential components of the outermost layer of the epidermis, and are naturally occurring lipids produced by your skin. Ceramides help support the skin’s barrier layer for moisture retention and help hold healthy cells together, leaving skin with a hydrated, smooth, and healthy look.
How do Ceramides work?
To better understand how Ceramides work, think of your skin as a brick wall. Your skin cells are the bricks, while ceramides and other lipids make up the mortar that holds them together. As skin loses its ability to replenish ceramides, it can no longer sufﬁciently bind those skin cells together, resulting in skin that loses its ﬁrmness and clarity and looks dry and dull.
When do Ceramides start to decrease and why?
Ceramide levels drop at an alarming rate after the age of 30 (by 43% in your 30’s and 60% in your 40’s). This is all part of the natural ageing process and happens to everyone, so it’s vital to replenish ceramides starting in our 30’s.
Can skincare products help restore Ceramides?
Adding Ceramides to skincare products can help restore the skin’s barrier. While it’s important to add Ceramides back into the skin, recent research shows us that other lipids such as cholesterol and fatty acids are critical as well for healthy-looking skin. The Advanced Ceramide Capsules by Elizabeth Arden provide an optimal ratio of skin-identical Ceramides 1, 3, and 6 as well as cholesterol to deliver maximum hydration and repair giving skin its most healthy radiance.
Can it be overused like retinol?
It’s about how you’re using it. Make sure to use a formula that combines Ceramides with essential fatty acids and cholesterol. The recommended usage for the Advanced Ceramide Capsules is twice a day, in the morning and at night, to see an improvement in moisturisation, radiance and visible anti-ageing results.
