Mimicking Younger Skin with Peptide Skin Care Products

What is it that makes young skin appear so firm, taut and smooth? The answer is Collagen, the structural protein found in the connective tissues of the body. Collagen, which makes up 75% of the skin, is crucial for the appearance of youthfulness; this naturally-occurring substance makes the skin strong, plump and smooth.

Peptides are amino acids that make up the proteins in the skin. They become proteins when they form a long chain of amino acids. However, when peptides are in a short chain of amino acids, they have the ability to penetrate the upper layer of the skin and signal the cells to tell them how to function.

In battling the signs of aging, it’s important to incorporate peptide creams and peptide serums in order to help encourage the skin to rebuild lost Collagen.

Peptides for Skin Care

Two of the best peptides for skin care are Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7.

Palmitoyl Oligopeptide is known for considerably stimulating the collagen production in cells that provide structure to connective tissues. These results are seen when this particular peptide is used for a significant amount of time, encouraging firmer skin.

Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 boosts anti-aging skin care regimens by helping reduce the inflammatory response in the skin. It is also thought to reduce the damage inflicted by exposure to pollution, ultraviolet light and other factors that are known to stress the skin.

These peptides help prevent the visible effects of collagen loss and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by working synergistically in serums and creams.
Peptide Renewal Cream Peptide Renewal Cream
Mario Badescu’s Peptide Renewal Cream harnesses the power of these peptides with the hydrating abilities of Hyaluronic Acid to nurture and moisturize the skin while helping to firm, smooth and tighten. This peptide cream is used to restore a youthful and luminous glow while encouraging the skin to repair itself from a loss of collagen. Can be applied after the Peptide Renewal Serum.

Peptide Renewal Serum Peptide Renewal Serum
Serums are specifically created with smaller molecules in order to make them better able to penetrate the skin. In this case, youth-boosting peptides along with Hyaluronic Acid, Aloe Vera, Chamomile Extract and other soothing, natural botanicals penetrate the surface to encourage the skin to become tighter and smoother. Those with dry, sensitive, maturing skin can benefit from this anti-aging peptide serum.
