Ceramides

Your skin is essentially divided into three layers – the epidermis (outer layer), dermis (middle layer) and hypodermis (innermost layer). The skin barrier is the outermost layer of your epidermis, making it crucial for good skin health. It is made of layers of cells termed corneocytes (with keratin fibres and natural moisturisers). These layers are held together by fatty acids or lipids, cholesterol and ceramide.


Now lipids are one of three substances that your skin is naturally made of. Ceramides in skincare replicate the benefits of lipids, and help hold the water and proteins in your skin together. They keep your skin plump and support the skin barrier by protecting it and sealing the moisture in.

Which type of AHA should I Use?

There are many types of alpha hydroxy acids, and while they perform the same function - they may vary in their strengths.


Glycolic Acid: is considered the strongest AHA that is commonly used in skincare. Due to its small molecular size, it is able to penetrate the skin quickly and deeply.


Lactic acid: is milder than glycolic acid and also helps hydrate the skin


Mandelic Acid: is the ideal AHA acid for sensitive skin, and it has anti-inflammatory properties as well
