If your skin feels like it’s shriveling away and in need of replenishment, it might benefit from a specific ‘C’ ingredient. And no, I’m not talking about the popular vitamin C, but something even mightier — CERAMIDES! These lipids can be found naturally in our skin, and they act as the glue to our skin cells so that the barrier can stay healthy and protected. As we age and expose ourselves to the sun, the amount of ceramides will decrease. This can lead to dryness, irritation, and signs of aging. So introducing this ingredient into our routine will help to restore that moisture and youthful complexion. They also provide protection against any external and environmental factors. Here are some ceramide skincare products we highly recommend!

7Hydrating Cleanser

Kickstart your skincare routine with this no-fuss drugstore cleanser. It contains three essential ceramides, as well as hyaluronic acid, so your skin can stay protected and hydrated before a good night’s sleep. Plus, the creamy base removes impurities without leaving your skin overly-stripped and tight. Non-comedogenic, non-irritating, AND fragrance-free, this gentle formula is definitely worth the try. Top of the list!

6K-Beauty Toner

Holika Holika Good Cera Super Ceramide Toner

$24.90 from YesStyle – prices may vary

Looking for a product to help with all your dry, sensitive skin needs? Part of Holika Holika’s Good Cera line, this ceramide-infused toner nourishes, moisturizes, and protects in one single step. It also helps to get rid of any leftover residue after cleansing. It might not be that splash of water you’re looking for in a toner, but the thicker consistency could very well be your next go-to!

5Ultra Moisturizing Cream

One of our all-time faves, this moisturizing cream is perfect to use throughout the year. It’s made with a blend of Dr. Jart+’s proprietary 5-Cera Complex, bifida ferment lysate, and beetroot to prevent moisture loss while strengthening the skin barrier. To apply, gently press the cream onto the face and neck for better absorption — followed by another cream/moisturizer for our extra-dry folks.

4Firming & Fortifying Moisturizer

Treat your skin to a mighty glow with this firming moisturizer. Key ingredients include ceramides to fortify the skin barrier, along with 0.1% retinol and vitamin C to tackle fine lines and wrinkles. The product is best used at night to encourage natural repair and help lighten those dark spots. If used in the morning, be sure to apply SPF to prevent any irritation or damage.
