The Skin-Softening Ingredients You Need in your Bathroom Now
Dry skin doesn't stand a chance against these hydrating workhorses that will have your skin feeling silky smooth in no time
This natural fat packs vitamins A and E, to leave your skin feeling smooth and soft. Research also indicates that it's a natural anti-inflammatory. Bonus: It helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
We're giving you permission to embrace fats. Well, not the kind you get by plowing through ice cream cartons on the daily, but the ones that occur naturally on your skin. They're called ceramides and they help skin retain moisture. Chances are if you're suffering from parched skin, you're lacking this crucial fat. Another plus? Skin easily absorbs ceramides, which means thirsty skin will find fast relief with this moisture-sealing ingredient.
Think of this ingredient as a magical little sponge that can absorb an incredible amount of moisture. Just how much? A whopping 1,000 times its weight in water. That translates into some serious hydration for your skin. And since hyaluronic acid plumps up when it absorbs water, it also translates to minimized fine lines and wrinkles.
