Yes, It's still Winter and many of us still have that dehyrated "Winter skin". Studies have actually shown dry/damaged skin is actually depleted of ceramides. So what exactly are ceramides and why do you need them?
Naturally found in the skins barrier, these fatty lipids protect the human skin from excessive water loss; which keeps our skin soft, supple & firm. As the skin ages, we loose moisture because ceramide levels start to depelete. Couple that with Winter and well, you get the picture. Dull, lifeless, lackluster, aging skin.
However, since skin ceramides make up almost 40% of the protected cells on of outermost layer of skin (stratum corneum) it would only make sense that adding ceramides to your skincare will actually help in preventing wrinkles, dryness and roughness that's visible on the face. Sounds amazing right? It is and this is the product you need:
Dr. Jart+ Ceramidin Liquid ($39 Sephora) This fast absorbing liquid serum plumps, strengthens and protects the skin, giving you a healthy glow. It can be used both am and pm underneath your regular moisturizer for additional hydration, without a greasy feel.

I literally can. not. get. enough. of this liquid gold hydrator. I simply smooth into my skin, allow it to absorb and voila, my skin feels youthfully hydrated. Sometimes, It works so good, I forget to apply my moisturizer.
