When skincare experts Elizabeth Arden launched their breakthrough Ceramide skincare regimen in 1990, it revolutionised anti-ageing. Delivering the power of ceramides, skin’s natural fortifier, Advanced Ceramide Capsules featured bio-engineered, skin-identical ceramides in a single-dose capsule format that delivered big anti-ageing results, including firming, smoothing and youth-enhancing benefits that had never been seen before.
Meet the power couple
Now, Elizabeth Arden has again raised the bar, creating the power duo of skincare: Advanced Ceramide Daily Youth Restoring Serum, Skin Fortifier; and Retinol Ceramide Capsules Line Erasing Night Serum, Skin Refiner.
Your protector by day, it replenishes and restores skin’s foundation by strengthening skin’s moisture barrier, your first defence against the signs of ageing.
Your refiner by night, this targeted treatment promotes cell turnover to visibly diminish lines and wrinkles and improve skin’s texture and tone.
The ‘bricks and mortar’ of skincare.
When you think of the structure of your skin, think of ceramides as the mortar and skin cells as the bricks. By the time you reach your 40s, you have lost about 60 per cent of your skin’s ceramides. The structure begins to weaken, resulting in fine lines and loss of firmness.
With age, our cell turnover slows, leaving damaged skin cells on the surface of the skin for longer. The new generation of retinols can help to promote healthy cell turnover, bringing new, hydrated and plump skin cells to the surface faster, as well as supporting skin’s natural collagen and elastin.
Powerful alone. Transformative together.
So, how do they work together? The power of Advanced Ceramide Capsules for day and Retinol Ceramide Capsules for night is amplified when used together. With skin that is stronger and healthier in composition comes improved texture and tone. And with better support around the skin cells, they will show improved firmness and plumpness.
Without strong skin barrier function, the effects will be diminished – the same way a house loses its structure without strong foundations in place.
Dr Dendy Engleman, a celebrity dermatologist and cosmetic and skin cancer surgeon, describes the duo’s effectiveness from a doctor’s point of view.
"Both capsules play different, yet complementary, roles,” Dr Engleman says. “Think of it this way – you brush your teeth every day, and you wouldn’t skip that step for a whitening treatment. Advanced Ceramide Capsules provide daily support to your skin, and Retinol Ceramide Capsules help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, texture and tone."
