How ceramides can benefit your skin - and help keep the wrinkles away

Posted by Eamonn Brady on

A little a day keeps the wrinkles away

As we get older our skin needs just that bit more care and attention, so we should take care of our skin morning and night. If you suffer from tightness of your skin on your face, you are not alone. It affects both men and women. A lot of people find they get tightness especially around the forehead area. Moisturisation is key to relieve this tightness. Any type of moisturisation is important to keep your skin from drying out; however, some people find it harder to get relief from that “tight” feeling. Ask our pharmacists and skincare team in Whelehans for options that will give excellent results. In this article I discuss the benefits of ceramides.

What happens our skin as we age?

Ceramides are naturally found in the skin.  They are the natural lipids found in the outermost layer of the skin.  They are the glue that keeps the skin cells together.  Ceramides support the skin matrix to keep it firm and supple.  Ceramide also works to improve moisture retention in the skin and fight against irritants and climate.

When the skin starts to age, the ceramides in the skin diminish and the skin begins to lose the youthful, firm glowing appearance as it starts to sag and wrinkles start to appear. Help is at hand with a wonderful range of ceramide rich skin products.  By using a daily moisturiser and a good night cream containing ceramides the skin can become youthful, firm and supple again.
