The skin-changing ingredient you need in your routine

Despite cholesterol’s bad reputation when it comes to health, topical application of this common lipid could help repair and strengthen the skin’s protective barrier – and it’s particularly effective when paired with other lipids such as ceramide. “Cholesterol is a particularly exciting ingredient for those with dry skin, since it helps to increase skin’s moisture levels and defend against hydration,” says Dr. Dendy Engelman, Elizabeth Arden Consulting Dermatologist. “Due to its ability to strengthen skin, it can also help with common skin conditions like dermatitis and eczema.”

Off the back of Elizabeth Arden’s iconic Ceramide Capsules, the beauty house has launched Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Eye Serum. Harnessing the power of new and improved Ceramide technology, the new capsules have been formulated to target the delicate eye area.  Nine new ingredients replenish naturally occurring lipids while supporting the skin’s natural renewal process. The eye area is brighter, more refined and fine lines are diminished.
