Ceramides From Rice May Help Improve Skin Appearance

Ceramides are plant-derived fatty acids that are used to help moisturize the skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. A recent study suggests that supplementation with ceramides from rice may help improve skin appearance and moisture.

50 healthy adults participated in the study. They received an oral supplement containing 40 mg of rice ceramides daily for 3 months. The researchers evaluated skin firmness, skin elasticity, trans-epidermal water loss, sebum production, wrinkle severity, UVR induced erythema, and skin barrier function at baseline, week 4, week 8, and week 12.

The researchers found that oral supplementation with rice ceramides significantly improved skin hydration, firmness, elasticity, sebum production, and wrinkle severity in the left cheek, dorsal neck, and inner right forearm.

In addition, there was a reduced rate of trans-epidermal water loss and UVR induced erythema. Older participants tended to see more significant results. One weakness of this study is it not contain a placebo group.

The study was conducted by researchers from UCSI University. It was published online ahead of print on June 30, 2022, in the journal Nutrients.

A previous study found that golden tomato extract may help improve skin health.
