Ceramides are the glue (lipids or fats) that hold our skin cells together to keep our skin barrier intact and healthy.
What are ceramides?
Ceramides are fats or lipids that are found in skin cells. They can make up to 50% of your outer skin layer, or epidermis.
Ceramides add moisture.
Ceramides are important for retaining your skin’s moisture and preventing the entry of germs into your body. With age, If your skin’s ceramide content decreases, it can become dehydrated. You may develop skin problems like dryness and irritation.
