Like many such products Phytoceramides consists of a set of strong antioxidants; these work against the free radicals, which damage the skin, to reduce the aging process. In the case of Phytoceramides the effect is to increase the amount of collagen and elastin that the body naturally produces, and it is these that help keep the skin young and wrinkle-free for longer. Elastin is essential for ensuring that your skin remains in a healthy and young state, while collagen is there to keep it firm, hence reducing the marks and wrinkles that come with aging.
Phytoceramides work by keeping the skin moisturized to a degree that enables it to remain in a healthy state; however, it is not just the production of collagen and elastin that the product enables. Also within the supplement are a number of essential and worthwhile vitamins, designed to add to the process. In fact, Phytoceramides includes Ceramides, an important substance that not only helps protect against damaging pollution but also keeps us shielded from the harmful UV rays of the sun. The product is specially concocted to help you combat the aging process, and to stay looking healthy and young for as long as you can.
It is important that we understand what Ceramides, which make up a good portion of the constituent of Phytoceramides, are: Ceramides are known as lipids, and they are the essential elements that make up most of the outer layer of the skin. They are there for protection, and also help keep the skin hydrated. As we grow older, the level of Ceramides in the skin falls; this leaves the skin prone to damage and aging, and is the process that results in us gaining wrinkles and having dry skin. Furthermore, exposure to the sun, and to pollutants in the air, can accelerate the aging process, and this is where Phytoceramides come in very useful.
Phytoceramides, by adding the essential elements into the skin to combat the natural effects of age, act by replacing the lost Ceramides, and also by introducing plant-based elements that have been found to be naturally helpful.
There are many products that make wild claims to achieve some of the above, yet Phytoceramides have been approved by the FDA and are promoted for use by many surgeons and skin care specialists who have found the results to be satisfactory.
