All About Peptides: The Anti-Aging Ingredient That’ll Be Your New Best Friend
Premature aging is one of the most common skin concerns we see, especially from women. Even women in their 20s begin using anti-aging products to address fine lines that may appear. Since women’s skin tends to be thinner than men’s, women tend to show the signs of aging earlier. Why do we tend to see lines and wrinkles as we get older, no matter how healthy our lifestyles? Age has a lot to do with it. As we age, our bodies begin to produce less collagen. Collagen and elastin production is essential for younger, healthier-looking skin. When our skin isn’t producing as much collagen, fine lines begin to appear. The good news is, you can reverse the signs of aging with the help of amino acids called peptides.
What are peptides?
Peptides are amino acids that are the building blocks of protein. One such protein is collagen. Although the body produces peptides and collagen naturally, it begins to produce less as you age. Luckily, peptides can be produced in a lab and applied to the skin. Once applied to the skin, either by cream or injection, peptides stimulate collagen production, which then reveals younger skin and diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Peptides offer more than anti-aging benefits; they can also encourage healing by helping the skin heal itself.
How to use peptides
Although peptides can be injected, it’s not always possible to get down to the office and there are less invasive ways. Peptides are included in many anti-aging creams, serums, and masks which can be applied at home as part of your regular skincare routine.
