What are Ceramides?
Ceramides are lipids (fats) found in high concentrations in the skin's uppermost layers. They account for more than half of the skin's composition, so it's no surprise that they play an important role in determining how your skin looks.
The Functions of Ceramide
Ceramides help to keep skin together by forming a protective layer that limits moisture loss and protects against visible damage caused by pollution and other environmental stressors. Ceramides are also one of the anti-aging "powerhouses" responsible for maintaining the skin's dynamic nature.
The Benefits of Ceramide in Skin Care
Ceramide-containing skin care products that are well-formulated (and properly packaged) will help reinforce your skin's barrier and increase hydration, giving you plumper, smoother, firmer-feeling skin with fewer visible lines and wrinkles, as well as fewer signs of sensitivity.
The Use of Ceramides in Youth Beam
Sigi Skin newest formulated night serum, Youth Beam has ceramide which acts as an anti-aging powerhouse that aids in strengthening your skin barrier. In addition, the use of a ceramide-containing serum will replenish ceramide loss due to ageing, the overuse of exfoliants and harsh soaps that strips the skin which causes a compromised skin barrier that allows unwanted bacteria to enter the cracks of the skin and cause irritation.
