Ceramide, one of the newest skincare actives in town, is often considered to be a notch above Hyaluronic Acid in providing your skin with the deep moisturisation that it needs. So much so that even Alia Bhatt cannot talk enough about the benefits of this active in her recent video with her sister Shaheen Bhatt on her very own YouTube channel. Not just that, ceramides ensure that moisture stays in your skin, apart from restoring and repairing your skin’s protective barrier. To add to that, it also saves your skin from the skin-damaging effects of pollutants.
There are quite a few ceramide-based moisturisers readily available online and offline. So, we took the time out to list 6 of them for you to pick from.
So, let’s get started!
1. Re’equil Ceramide & Hyaluronic Acid Moisturiser For Normal To Dry Skin
This moisturiser weaves magic in three definite ways. It is powered with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a humectant that captures moisture from the surroundings and makes it available to the deeper layers of the skin. It also smoothes fine lines and wrinkles. Secondly, it is an occlusive that creates a protective layer over your skin, preventing moisture from escaping. Thirdly, it works as an emollient that is known for replenishing ceramides and fatty acids, enhancing your skin’s ability to hydrate itself.
It gets easily absorbed by your skin, without leaving an oily residue. What’s more, it’s non-comedogenic too, which implies that it treats pimples and acne effectively. However, if you have naturally oily skin, you might want to give this a pass because this moisturiser may tend to make your skin feel and look oilier.
Price: Rs 395 (100 gm)
2. Dot & Key Retinol Night Cream With Ceramides, Hyaluronic & Hibiscus
This nighttime skin-loving treatment is boosted with the goodness of retinol which does a wonderful job of reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Ceramides, on the other hand, keep your skin hydrated deeply while Hyaluronic Acid offers you the same benefits. Vitamin C treats dark spots and pigmentation. The four hero ingredients are just what you need to moisturise your skin, treat fine lines and wrinkles, and deeply hydrate it at the same time. And that too without digging a deep hole in your pocket!
Price: Rs 695 (60 ml)
3. Earth Rhythm Phyto-Ceramide Deep Moisturiser With Ceramides
This moisturiser is packed with the power of three – Ceramides, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin E. Hyaluronic Acid is known as a humectant which makes moisture available to your skin from the surrounding air, while also reducing fine lines and wrinkles. In short, it contributes to a radiant glow and clear and supple skin. Phyto-ceramides serve as a double layer of hydration, lock moisture, and treat itchiness and dryness. To top that, Vitamin E protects the skin against sun damage. If you’re looking for cruelty-free, derm-tested, fragrance-free moisture, your search might just stop here.
Price: Rs 739 (50 gm)

5. The Face Shop Rice & Ceramide Moisturising Cream
Embalmed with superhero ingredients like rice extracts, rice bran oil, and ceramide, this cream makes its way into the deeper layers of your skin.
