How Ceramides Are Like An Internal Humidifier For Your Skin
Here’s a bummer: Your skin is tends to lose more water in the winter. It’s a little thing called transepidermal water loss, and while it’s not totally unique to the colder months, it significantly increases when thanks to the cold, arid air outside and the punched up indoor heat; it happens because your skin barrier weakens, which makes it easier for water to seep out.
Many skin care experts recommend investing in a humidifier to curb that dryness (board-certified dermatologist Angelo Landriscina, M.D., even calls it his “biggest winter skin care secret” over on TikTok). But did you know you can also manage transepidermal water loss at the internal level? Here’s another route to happy, hydrated skin, without investing in a hi-tech humidifier.
