Annoying as it is, dry skin happens to most of us, and during cooler months the occurrence increases by a big margin. Flakiness occurs when the outermost layer of your skin or your skin barrier loses every bit of moisture. And when it comes to re-hydrating parched skin and healing your skin barrier, nothing comes close to ceramides.
Ceramides are lipids that are naturally present in our skin. They form a protective layer that helps retain moisture and shield you from environmental damage.
We scouted the most hard-working ceramide moisturisers that will build your barrier health.
