Why Phytoceramides? Because they flat out work! The title of the segment on was "cheat your age: Phytoceramides." Ceramides are a lipid that naturally occurs in our skin and levels are plentiful when we are young. However, as we age our ceramide levels decrease and the skin's natural barrier begins to break down. Ceramides have been in topical solutions for many years but only work on a superficial level. Oral Phytoceramide supplements work from the inside of the body out on a much deeper level.
The oral forms have been used in Japan for many years but not available in the USA. But now the FDA has finally approved phytoceramides for oral consumption in the United States! The right oral form will put these ceramides back into our skin and will reverse the signs of aging and reduce wrinkles and fine lines. So the pill is taken orally and the potent ceramide lipids enter our bloodstream, working their way to the skin's surface & begin to rebuild and re-hydrate our skins protective barrier from the inside out.
They bind the skin together, making the skin plump & retaining the much needed moisture the skin needs to maintain that youthful, vibrant look. Sun damage and wrinkles are repaired and users' outer skin layer appears refreshed and fine lines and wrinkles disappear.
