The Elizabeth Arden Retinol Cermaide Capsules

Elizabeth Arden are well known for their ceramide range of which I truly am a fan. Over the last year I have been super impressed with their skincare and how good my skin feels after use. With that in mind I would like to introduce the Elizabeth Arden Retinol Cermaide Capsules Line Erasing Serum. Another winner from the brand leaving skin feeling and looking great. I have been a massive fan of the Advanced Ceramide Capsules Daily Youth Restoring Serum and now I am a converted fan of the retinol ceramide capules too. If you haven’t tried any of the range yet then you are totally missing out.

For those of you who have no clue about cermadies they are an anti ageing powerhouse. They actually make up 50% of the skin’s composition. So its definitely something you need to be thinking about especially as you hit your 30’s. Protecting your skin is vital and we need all the help we can get. Elizabeth Arden have now combined RETINOL into their ceramide range bringing us these amazing night capsules. Your night time routine is really key and with both the ceramides and the retinol your skin will be thanking you. Together they help with moisture and skin barrier repair. Helping diminish the look of lines and wrinkles, improve the skin’s texture, tone and give younger looking skin.

Why do we need Ceramides in our skincare routine?

Basically the ceramides hold the skin cells together by forming a protective layer that limits moisture loss and protects against environmental damage and pollution. They also support the skin’s structure and if they are depleted then skin is affected meaning dry, wrinkled and dehydrated skin. Getting older and also sun damage deplete the ceramides in our skin as well, so its super important that we add this into our beauty regime. With the use of ceramides in your routine skin will become plumper, have increased hydration and basically firmer looking skin.

Why is it important to have Retinol in our beauty routine?

Retinol enhances the skin’s natural collagen to help visibly reduce lines and wrinkles. Its a also known as Vitamin A and is easily absorbed into the skin. This ingredient is one of the most sought after popular active ingredient and is known for cell renewal, reducing wrinkles and reducing sun damage. Its the most effective ingredient to protect skin against ageing and sun damage.

Even though Retinol is super powerful its really sensitive to light and air. With the capsule format not only do you get a powerful precise dose. It also means the retinol is protected meaning is potency is protected. Elizabeth Arden promise that the caspules have 76% more potency than other retinol products on the market due to the capsules. So its pretty exciting stuff for the brand.

For application break off the top of the capsule and squeeze out the product onto your fingers. Then massage in all over your face and neck. Make sure your skin is cleansed and totally clean before you apply and then apply your moisturiser. I like to apply the product when I am in bed and then let the magic happen while I am sleeping.

As well as the two key ingredients you will find youth restoring peptides that promote wrinkle smoothing and improve the appearance of skin tone and elasticity. As well as avocado, sunflower seed and oilve oils to help moisturise and give skin conditioning benefits.

Both the advanced ceramide day capsules and ceramide retinol night capsules can also work in perfect harmony together. The day caspules help provide daily support to the skin while the night caspules help help improve the appareance of the skin.

The  Elizabeth Arden Retinol Cermaide Capsules Line Erasing Serum capsules come in 2 sizes. For 30 capsules  its R565 and for 60 capsules its R965. The capsules are available in selected stores now as well as online with Foschini Beauty, Red Square and Woolworths.
