When it comes to effective anti-ageing skincare, the efficacy of products is key. That and of course, being consistent with your skincare efforts. And when it comes to skincare ingredients with anti-ageing benefits to look out for, one of the most important ingredients to look out for is ceramide

Need us to point you in the right direction? Try Astalift’s Red Jelly Aquarysta, a luxurious jelly made with nanotechnology to deliver a power boost of ceramides and effectively reverse the signs of ageing. 

But first, let’s take a closer look at what ceramide is and why it’s one of the most important skincare ingredients for anti-ageing.

What are ceramides? 

Ceramides are lipids. It’s basically the fat that is present in your skin cells. Ceramides make up almost half of your epidermis, the outer layer of your skin. And as you can probably infer by now, the amount of ceramides in your skin plays a big part in how it ages.

What do ceramides do for your skin?

Research has shown that ceramides help to form a protective barrier for your skin, preventing moisture loss and environmental damage. That can help to greatly reduce signs of ageing, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and dry or dull skin. 

Why do I need ceramide in my skincare routine?

We know what you’re thinking. If I already have ceramides in my face, why do I need more of them? Similar to collagen, we tend to lose ceramides as we age. So just like how you’d stimulate collagen production in your skin for a more youthful visage, having ceramides in your skincare helps to replenish whatever is lost due to ageing or sun damage while fortifying your skin barrier at the same time. 

Astalift Red Jelly Aquarysta - nano-tech anti-ageing skincare with a potent triple blend of human-type nano-ceramides

The Astalift Red Jelly Aquarysta is named as such because of its unique jelly texture - it actually bounces back into shape after each use! Applying this jelly is also quite a treat for the senses. The formula glides on smoothly and has a light Damask rose scent that will immediately transport you to your happy place. 

Formulated with three human-type nano-ceramides, this power-packed skin conditioning booster not only helps to replenish the ceramide level in your epidermis but also encourages repair and renewal. These nano-ceramides are currently the world’s smallest at 20 nm in diameter, which accelerates the absorption rate and kickstarts the repair process. 

A study done by Fujifilm (which owns the Astalift brand), shows that using the Red Jelly Aquarysta twice a day for 28 days radically improves the skin’s moisture levels, enhances firmness and also smoothens textured skin.

Besides the potent blend of nano-ceramides, the formula also contains nano-astaxanthin and nano-lycopene. The former is an innovation by Fujiiflm, derived from a compound naturally found in sea creatures such as salmon, shrimp and lobster. It has a very high antioxidant content and helps speed up wound healing, as well as suppressing damage from free radicals. The latter is another antioxidant-rich ingredient derived from tomatoes, which provides superior protection against UV damage. 

What makes the Astalift Red Jelly Aquarysta such an all-rounder is that it is formulated with powerhouse ingredients in anti-ageing skincare. That, of course, includes collagen - three types in fact - to protect your skin against moisture loss, replenish depleted collagen and promote healthy collagen production for skin that is smooth, firm and youthful-looking. 

How to use Astalift Red Jelly Aquarysta 

Use this in the AM and PM after cleansing your face, but before you apply your serums. Using the spatula provided, take a pea-sized amount of product and gently pay it on your face and neck. 

It takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks to show results, depending on your skin condition.
