Editor’s Pick: 7 Ceramide-Infused Moisturisers For A Well-Protected Skin Barrier

If you are a skincare enthusiast, you might already know why ceramides are considered a boon for dry skin. One of the most effective ingredients to tackle dry and dehydrated skin, ceramide-infused moisturisers help in strengthening the skin barrier. A naturally existing ingredient in our body, our skin starts to lose ceramides with age and therefore, dermatologists recommend the topical application to support and maintain the skin’s protective barrier. 

Ceramides help rebuild and restore the protective barrier to retain moisture, fight environmental damage, and improve signs of ageing. For anyone battling dry skin or looking for anti-ageing benefits, ceramide-infused products, especially moisturisers, are recommended. Ceramides are versatile and therefore, can easily be layered with other ingredients. Here’s a list of our favourite  ceramide-infused moisturisers:

Daughter Earth Daily Moisturiser with Calendula and Ceramide

You need to be hard-pressed to make me dislike products from Daughter Earth. My newest favourite from this homegrown brand’s skincare range is the ceramide and calendula moisturiser which is soothing and lightweight, to say the least. It doesn’t clog pores and is suitable for sensitive and acne-prone skin.

A recent addition to my skincare routine, In My Defence (IMD) has been the quickest entrant to my list of favourite skincare products. I use it twice a day and I wake up with plumper and healthier skin every morning. With 10 per cent more concentrated ceramides, IMD is backed by science to work on every skin type – dry, normal, oily, or acne-prone. I am on my second bottle and I am definitely repurchasing it.

It stands true to its name – it provides comfort and healing to irritated skin. A lightweight and balancing moisturiser from a sought-after Korean brand, COSRX skincare offerings make for a worthy investment. It comes in a matte balm texture which suits both dry and oily skin types.

Drunk Elephant LALA Retro Whipped Cream

If tired and dull skin is your major concern, call dibs on this product. A skin-rescue cream with plant-derived ceramides, Drunk Elephant’s Lala Retro Whipped cream fights everyday stressors to give lasting moisture, and healthy and plumper skin. FYI, Drunk Elephant products can be ordered from credible e-comm platforms that deliver to India.

Bioderma Atoderm Creme Ultra-nourishing Face & Body Daily Care

If you are apprehensive to trust any cosmetic brand with your skin, opt for Bioderma Atoderm Crème. Suitable for the most sensitive skin type, this product helps maintain the skin’s water reserves. Think of it as a gallon of water for your dry and parched skin. While providing optimum and lasting moisture, it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and is smooth, and non-sticky.

Derma Co. Ceramide + Ha Intense Daily Face Moisturiser

Ceramide-Infused Moisturisers

Ceramides and hyaluronic acid make for a powerful combination for dry skin. This offering by Derma Co. is an intense boost of moisture to the skin that feels stretchy and dry. With that, the moisturiser also helps calm irritation and is safe to be used on acne-prone and pigmented skin. 

The Face Shop Rice Ceramide Moisturising Cream

Trust Korean skincare brands to come up with the most unique but effective ingredient combination. While most of us like using rice water for hair care, its skincare benefits are as many. Blending rice’s hydrating properties with ceramides packs in a power-punch of moisture that deeply nourishes and rejuvenates dry skin.
