The Ingredient That Makes Your Skin Look Younger
Plenty of products promise to give you younger-looking skin, but the secret to reversing wrinkles is to work with what you’ve got. Enter ceramides, lipid molecules found naturally in skin that hold cells together to retain moisture for a supple, youthful complexion. The older we get, the more ceramides we lose (thanks, sun damage and free radicals), resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin. The solution? Feed your skin with more of them. Here, we’ve rounded up eight products packed with the age-defying ingredient. Who says you can’t turn back time?
