When applied to your skin, they demonstrate remarkable benefits, revitalising your skin and making it more resilient and stronger. Leaving the appearance of blurred fine lines and a soft focus filter effect.
So what are these so called peptides?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that act as building blocks of proteins such as collagen, elastin and keratin. These proteins are the foundations of your skin and are responsible for its texture, strength and resilience. Without peptides, our skin is less intact which can lead to a loss of firmness, the appearance of wrinkles, a change in texture and less ‘bounce’.
When applied topically to the skin, peptides act as little messengers, triggering skin cells to perform specific functions such as building collagen and elastin, encouraging skin to look and act younger.
Peptides are an essential ingredient in the fight against ageing and should be part of your everyday arsenal – because the need for cells to behave as healthy young cells requires daily attention.
