Next time you purchase a skin care product look out for these 3 ingredients!
Ceramides are naturally occurring long chains of lipids. These chains are found in naturally high concentrations in the uppermost layers of skin.
Simply put, ceramides help skin retain moisture. Fortifying its protective barrier and keeping skin’s texture firm and plump. Their amazing water-retention capacity makes ceramides necessary for replenishing and restoring skin. Age and sun damage reduce the effectiveness of your skin’s natural ceramides. Skin is left vulnerable to all sorts of problems when ceramides become depleted over time. From drier, rougher skin, to wrinkles, irritation, redness, and visible signs of dehydration.
Ceramides help hold skin together. By forming a protective layer, ceremides limit moisture loss and protect skin against visible damage from pollution and other environmental factors. Ceramides are ideal for all skin types. They are most effective when combined with other skin-replenishing ingredients like fatty acids and glycerin. A gentle leave-on exfoliant will actually improve the effectiveness of any product containing ceramides. This is because there won’t be a layer of dead skin keeping vital ingredients from absorbing into the skin.
Peptides are made up of amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein; and skin is composed primarily of proteins known as keratin.
Peptides have the amazing ability to help revitalize skin’s building blocks so it becomes more resilient. Without peptides, your skin would not remain fully intact. The result is loss of firmness, deep fine lines, uneven texture, and loss of skin’s elasticity.
There are different types of peptides that have unique benefits. They range from improving the appearance of wrinkles to reinforcing skin’s elasticity. When peptides are combined with antioxidants they both can address multiple signs of aging.
Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is a water-soluble vitamin that works in harmony with the natural substances in your skin.
With the ability to visibly improve the appearance of uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, fine lines, dullness and a weakened skin barrier. Niacinamide is a standout ingredient because it works well with all skin types. It also has the versatility to help almost any skin concern.
Vitamin B3 is able to reduce the impact of environmental damage because of its ability to improve skin’s natural barrier. It also helps skin repair signs of past damage. Other benefits of Vitamin B3 is that it helps skin improve its natural production of skin-strengthening ceramides. By renewing and restoring the surface layer of skin, niacinamide also helps protect skin against moisture loss and dehydration. You can use multiple containing Vitamin B3 in your skin care routine. Vitamin B3 is uniquely compatible with products containing retinol, peptides, hyaluronic acid, AHAs, BHA, vitamin C, and all types of antioxidants.
