If we talk about the well-known ingredients for skin texture, mainly for moisturizing and anti-wrinkles, we all know Ceramide. Let’s get to know this popular queen in-depth, shall we?
❤ What is Ceramide?
Ceramide are a class of fatty acids called lipids, exists in the human body with the proportion of about 40% to 50% helps create a barrier to prevent permeability. This locks moisture into your skin, which helps prevent dryness and irritation. It may also help protect your epidermis from environmental damage. That’s why it is important for skin moisture and hydration.
❤ If we already have it inside of our body, why do we have to take the supplementation of Ceramide?
Accordingly to aging, sun exposure, environmental pollution, bad habits of self-care, the loss of Ceramide will happen in our body, causing our skin protective barrier to become weaker, which leads to blemish, dryness, redness, wrinkles, and skin discomfort.
The easy way to determine either our skin is lack of Ceramide or not is when our external skincare product becomes less and less effective, that’s when our skin is signaling the sign that they are lack of Ceramide, and that’s why we need the supplementation from the inside to keep our skin texture healthy.
❤ So in conclusion, what does Ceramide can actually do to our skin?
-Reinforce skin barriers, keeping dirt and pollution away while retaining moisture
- Increase hydration
-Helping skin to have a plumpy, smooth, and firm feelings

Both have an amazing ability of hydration that will work synergistically if being consumed together.
