Let us talk to you about peptides!! I’m sure that you have all heard about peptides within Korean skin care products, but do you know what they do and what the amazing benefits of them are??
Thanks to science and lots of extensive research, it has been proven that peptides can help manage those pesky wrinkles and signs of aging that we all try and hide!!
How do they make your skin look younger I hear you ask??
Well… as you may or (may not know), our skin is mostly made up of proteins, the most commonly known proteins in the skin are collagen, elastin and keratin, which are responsible for its texture and tone. Collagen is a protein, made up of long segments of amino acids arranged like a chain. When the collagen breaks down, small segments of amino acids are formed, these are tiny proteins and active molecules that are also known as peptides. It’s these peptides that can provide amazing anti-aging benefits! Proteins are known as the fundamental building blocks of our skin, without peptides skin doesn’t remain intact, therefore resulting in a loss of firmness.
Collagen in our skin can be reduced by many factors, from environmental (sunlight), to simple growing older. Over time skin becomes thinner and wrinkled, and as this happens your skin produces certain peptides, research shows that these peptides send messages to your skin letting it know that it has lost collagen and needs to regenerate more.
So when it comes to using a beauty tool that contains peptides, your skin thinks the same as above, and starts to regenerate new collagen. Therefore you can help minimize and reduce the look of wrinkles, and give your skin a more youthful appearance just by applying a product which contains peptides that will help boost the production of collagen.
The most common peptide found within many skincare products on the market is called Matrixyl, this is also known as a neuropeptide. It is a palmitoyl-pentapeptide 3 and this is a peptide that specifically stimulates collagen synthesis and skin repair. This means it can be used as a long-term aging system. This highly-effective composition has been shown to reduce the look and appearance of static and dynamic wrinkles.
There are also many other peptides made up from different combinations of amino acids, that are just as important in helping keep our skin looking and feeling like new.
Hexapeptide (Oligopeptide) is decreasing the visible effects of aging by reducing the deep wrinkles and lines that occur.
Argireline – acetyle hexapeptide-3 This is the best known of the neuropeptides, It works by limiting the neurotransmitters that tell your facial muscles to move.
Caprooyl tetrapeptide-3 is made up of four amino acids and, like all peptides, it signals our bodies to do things – like get busy and produce more collagen!!
