Get ready for smoother, tighter skin with this powerhouse ingredient.
As we age our skin is more prone to fine lines, wrinkles, lack of firmness, rough texture and dryness… If you have noticed any of these on your face and want to minimize their appearance, look no further than peptides—an ingredient loved by skincare experts for its ability to smooth, plump, and firm skin without causing irritation.
What do peptides do for the skin?
Peptides are made of amino acid chains, the building blocks of protein in our skin and signal your skin to enter repair mode in order to produce more collagen and elastin—two proteins responsible for keeping skin smooth and firm offering a more lifted and contoured appearance. Some peptides also have anti-inflammatory benefits, which help to calm redness of the skin and reduce sensitivity.
How to choose the correct peptide product for your skin
Opt for a leave-on product
Skip any products, like cleansers or masks, that get rinsed off and opt for a leave-on product instead such as a peptide-filled serum or moisturiser and apply it twice daily.
Pair them with retinol
Peptides are great anti-aging ingredients, but they don’t replace retinol. For optimal skin smoothing and firming results, you’ll want to incorporate both retinol and peptides into your daily routine. when it comes to the delicate area around your eyes however it’s best to opt for a peptide-infused eye cream/serum. Retinol, while effective, can be too harsh for the aforementioned eye area.
