USE PEPTIDE POWERED PRODUCTS TO FIGHT VISIBLE SIGNS OF AGING
Have you made friends with peptides, the hottest anti-aging superpower yet? If not, say hello to peptides, the reigning breakthrough in anti-aging skincare.
Many top-of-the-line anti-aging products in the market have peptides in them to give visible results. Peptides do make a world of difference to how youthful, smooth and bouncy your skin looks and feels. So what makes peptides the elixir for youthful skin? Let’s get to know more about peptides and how they work for skin.
What are Peptides?
Peptides are chains of amino acids (naturally occuring molecules) that work as building blocks of proteins. Amino acids form peptides, peptides form proteins. There are several typres of amino acids that can combine in specific sequences to form different types of peptides. Similarly, different peptides can be joined in specific sequences to form different proteins.
Our body has a lot of protein – and peptides – in its make-up. One key protein in the body is collagen that works like a glue to hold various organs and systems together. The skin too is held firm by collagen. When there is plentiful collagen, skin looks smooth, unlined and youthful. When under-skin collagen is depleted or damaged, signs of aging like wrinkling, fine lines and sags appear on the surface.
What are signs of aging?
As we mentioned earlier, collagen is the secret to youthful skin. However, with aging skin starts losing collagen and is unable to make enough new collagen to make up for what it loses. This then becomes visible on skin as fine lines, wrinkles, sags, loss of firmness, and eye bags. It is like the skin has lost part of its elasticity, the ability to bounce back to its former firmness. One way to restore skin’s lost elasticity, and thereby revive its youthfulness, is by prompting it to make more collagen.
Peptides, the building blocks of collagen
Here is exactly where peptides get to deliver. Peptides have natural affinity with skin as these are included in skin’s make up. Plus, being small in size these can penetrate into deeper skin layers when applied on skin surface. Once inside, peptides act as signals (or growth factors) to stimulate skin to produce extra collagen to compensate for depletion. When skin makes more collagen, its firmness improves, and fine lines and wrinkles lessen. Simple, really!
How to choose your peptide powered anti-aging product
There are several peptide powered anti-aging creams and lotions in the market. Two of the most preferred and most advanced of these are Matrixyl 3000 and Matrixyl Synthe 6 peptides. Both are acknowledged for delivering visible anti-wrinkle results.
Matrixyl 3000 promotes production of collagen and elastin under the skin, both vital anti-aging proteins that help skin regain smooth and wrinkle-free appearance. Matrixyl Synthe 6 stimulates skin at six levels for intensive and visible anti-aging action. Together in an anti-aging cream, these make a great duo for effective anti-wrinkle results.
Peptides work even better when supported by other anti-aging active ingredients. For example: Hyaluronic Acid which is a natural molecule found in skin that has high ability to retain hydration for plumping effect. Then there are antioxidants and vitamins that help neutralize harmful free radicals unleashed by pollution and sunrays that otherwise accelerate appearance of pigmentation and fine lines on skin.
It is always a good idea to read the ingredient list to check for key actives.
We recommend Body Cupid Anti-Aging Night Cream that not only has Matrixyl 3000 and Matrixyl Synthe 6 peptides; it also has a line up of premium natural actives to facilitate visible anti-wrinkle results.
