The importance of adding Peptides to your skincare routine.

Peptides are important to add to your skincare routine and here is why....

Peptides are a compound formed by a small chain of amino acids, which is an essential ingredient in producing proteins such as collagen, elastin, and keratin. These proteins are the main components that make up your skin's texture, strength, and elasticity. Peptides essentially send a "message" to our skin that it has lost collagen and needs to generate more.

Studies have shown that our natural ability to produce collagen slows down significantly in our mid-to-late 20. This is because the "message" (to produce) sent from peptides has also slowed down.

Adding a skincare product containing peptides will help signal your skin to produce more collagen. Resulting in smoother, younger looking skin! There are many different types of peptides, here are just a few..

Matrixyl 3000: is a synthetic combination of five natural amino acids, which when compared to Retinol, acts just as effectively but has the advantage of not inducing skin irritations or reactions.

Dermaxyl: Rehydrates the skin's appearance and assists in the improvement of sun-damage effects. It helps “plump up” the look of the skin, thereby reducing the appearance of fine lines and giving the skin a smoother appearance.

SYN-AKE: A small peptide that smooths the appearance of expression lines by topical application. It mimics the activity of a naturally occurring peptide found in temple viper venom which has a strong ability to relax muscle contraction by blocking the acetylcholine receptor
