As we launched recently the Kosmetic Immunity by JKosmmune Ceramide Protective Cream, we thought it is worth writing about one of its main ingredients: ceramides and share our top picks with you.
If you find your skin becoming sensitive skin and misbehaving with rashes, dullness, dryness, and loss of firmness, this may be because of a lack of ceramides in your skin routine.
Here is the inside to this incredible ingredient.
What are ceramides and why are they crucial?
Ceramides like collagen, are naturally appearing in the skin. Their level in the skin is decreasing in your early 20s.
Ceramides are very important because they are key elements in the dermis and epidermis. They are the first level of protection for our skin. They make up 50% of the skin and protect your skin from environmental stressors. In other words, they create a barrier and keep skin plump and hydrated.
However, as we age and because of other external factors, our skin creates less and less of these helpful skin cells.
As you probably know, a damaged skin barrier can lead to redness and inflammation, dryness but also acne. In addition, there are more fine lines and wrinkles.
In the worst scenario it may cause eczema, rosacea, psoriasis.
How to protect your skin?
There are a number of reasons why your skin is losing the level of ceramides. The main reason is just a natural process of ageing.
The bad news is that in your thirties, you may lose up to 40% of your skin’s ceramides. Your skin starts losing its elasticity and density. Moreover, if you over-exfoliate, sunbath you are making things worse.
The great news is that ceramides can be replenished. We have a number of skincare products in our offer which restore and maintain your skin barrier. Here are some of our top suggestions.
