Barrier Repair for Chronically Dry Skin While many reparative creams contain ceramides to protect the skin's barrier, Skinceuticals Triple Lipid Restore, $125, contains a balance of ceramides, fatty acids and cholesterol. And it's the cholesterol piece that's key for older skin types. "When you're younger, dry skin is a ceramide deficiency; older dry skin is a cholesterol deficiency," says Ingraham. By balancing the skin's lipids and restoring optimal barrier function with this cream, you get better texture, smaller pores and overall radiance. It even enhances fullness, which is important for older women.
