Hi, I read elsewhere that "ceramic precursor" means the ingredient encourages the skin to produce ceramides. Do you know if it's a specific type of ceramide or basically, all types of ceramides found in the skin?

The journal I referenced doesn't say specifically which ceramides, just that the precursors are necessary for ceramides to build the moisture barrier. I'm going to assume it means all the ceramides found in our skin i this case!

Hi Jenny!

Thank you for your useful sharing. I wonder that it is all fine if i use Tunemakers Ceramide 200 while i am pregnant. It’s so nice if you can help me with this doubt.

Thank you so much xoxo

Hi Mie! I'm not too familiar with pregnancy-safe ingredients but based on my limited knowledge the Ceramide 200 looks ok. I would definitely check with your doctor just to be safe though!

As I get older I noticed my skin isn't as bright anymore - do you recommend this system for an over all brightness and eveness?

Some of the products in this system can help, but I haven't tried those myself so I can't say for sure. I actually wrote a post specifically about brightening here: My skin brightening routine: 4 products + 3 tips to get your skin glowing

Hi Jenny! I'm tempted to try the Tunemakers Ceramide 200 after reading your reviews, it sounds so interesting and i wonder how should I incorporate it into my routine. Do you have any suggestions on how to use it and on the frequency of usage? According to how I understand it you're supposed to use it before toner right after cleansing. I'm a little worried about overusing it. Also do you recommend using it before/after exfoliating with AHA? I love your content so much and really appreciate all the info that I learned from your blog!

Hi Rachel, thank you for the kind comment! The recommended usage is twice a day before toner and after cleansing, but if your skin barrier isn't compromised I think once a day would suffice (that's what I'm doing now). Due to its simple ingredients and lightweight texture it'll be difficult to "overuse" it, so I don't think you'll need to worry about that :) If you're exfoliating with AHA, use this after!
