BENEFITS OF USING CERAMIDES

What is ceramide? Ceramides not only help your skin retain moisture and fortify its protective barrier, they keep its appearance firmer and plumper, form 50% of the protective layer of oils and waxes that limit skin moisture loss, are essential for optimal barrier function, and should be added in to optimize every daily skincare routine. Because age and sun damage reduce the effectiveness of your skin’s natural ceramides, without any replenishment, you might notice rougher skin, wrinkles, irritation and redness.

HOW DO CERAMIDES WORK?

Ceramides work almost like a natural ‘cement’, restoring and strengthening the barrier of your skin to keep moisture in and pollution and other environmental stressors out. Even more than Retinol, Niacinamide and Peptides, they’re an anti-aging powerhouse responsible for supporting the skin’s dynamic nature. Two pro-ceramides – phytosphingosines and sphingolipids – actually help skin make more ceramides! Now, around the age of 30 we start to produce fewer naturally, which is when topically supplementing your ceramides becomes a ‘must’.

Skin with and without ceramides

The lipid layer locks in moisture and acts as a barrier against pollution, dehydration and bacteria. When this first line of defence is weakened, the rate your skin ages can increase.

Why Your Skin Needs More Oxygen

It's like an energy booster for your face.

Oxygen Instant Facial Refuelling Mask

Did you know that oxygen is the energy needed for every biochemical reaction in your body and it’s essential for cell respiration, self-cleansing, repair and collagen and elastin production. It also tackles anaerobic bacteria which is partially responsible for acne, and the water delivered by the infusion itself is responsible for the luminosity that makes your skin glow. Of course, you can always exercise to get more oxygen in your skin. Or flip over and stand on your head to increase blood flow, but our Oxygen Instant Facial Refuelling Mask, a patented invention by Dr Paul Herzog – an awarded Nobel-institute professor and researcher – is the easy way to get targeted oxygen to your skin fast!
