If you’re still relying on active ingredients to get plump, healthy skin then you need to see this.

Ceramides has, over the years, become synonymous with skincare. Ever since celebrities have started to speak up about ceramides being their secret to radiant, youthful skin, the skincare market has been blowing up with a barrage of options. From moisturisers to serums, cleansers to toners, you name it and the skincare industry’s got a ceramide option for it! Ceramides are the ultimate game-changers you need in your skincare routine. But before we dig deeper into how to include them in your routine, let’s understand (again) what exactly are ceramides?

In technical terms, ceramides are naturally occurring lipids present in the skin that help maintain the skin’s natural barrier function. Now to simplify this, ceramides are like the glue that holds your skin together. This helps keep the skin barrier intact, which helps lock in moisture  and protect your skin from external aggressors. As we age, the level of naturally occurring ceramides deplete in our skin. To make up for the same, you need topical ceramides. Topical ceramides are considered safe to use twice a day for all skin types (even sensitive, acne-prone skin!) Here’s 5 ways to include ceramides in your everyday skincare routine.

1. The easiest way to incorporate ceramides in your daily skincare routine is through a moisturiser. However oily or sensitive your skin may be, a moisturiser is something you’re bound to use on a daily basis. If you want to take it slow, start with adding a ceramide-infused moisturiser to your PM routine first, as that is when your skin goes into repair mode allowing the ceramides to work their magic.

2. Level up your skincare routine with a ceramide-based serum. Yes! Ceramide serums have been on the rise. Serums sink deep into the skin to help provide optimal hydration and help boost your skin barrier. Use a ceramide-infused serum straight after cleansing, or after a toner in your daily routine.

3. Invest in non-stripping, gentle cleansers infused with ceramides. Ceramide-based cleansers are a boon to your skin barrier. A gentle, non-stripping cleanser helps maintain skin’s natural moisture balance, and helps keep your skin looking plump & hydrated after every wash.

4. Sun-protection is key! This is the most essential part of any skincare routine. Incorporate a broad spectrum sunscreen that offers UVA/UVB protection to your AM routine. A sunscreen with ceramides is an added bonus to help give your skin barrier a boost & keep it sun-protected. Make sure to re-apply your sunscreen every 3-4 hours for best results.

5. Barrier repair extends to the eye area too. If you have been noticing the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, and dark circles, then these may be an indication of a damaged skin barrier. The best place to start is by investing in an under eye care routine rich in ceramides.

While all these ceramide-infused products can work wonders for your skin, the key to getting the desired results lies in consistency. Continue to follow your routine for 2-4 weeks regularly to see visible results & get the plump, healthy skin of your dreams!
