Science has proven that peptides can help reduce wrinkles in your skin and reverse the signs of aging. So how do peptides in skin care products make your skin look younger? Human skin is comprised mostly of collagen. Collagen is a protein comprised of long segments of amino acids arranged like a chain.
• Collagen provides a foundation and thickness for skin.
• Women under 30 have ample collagen, which results in smooth, tight skin.
• The rest of us have less collagen – skin tends to be thinner thus revealing more wrinkles
When collagen breaks down, short segments of amino acids are formed. These are the tiny proteins and active molecules known as peptides. Peptides in skin care can provide significant anti-aging benefits. When collagen is depleted by age and environmental factors, including sunlight, it is not fully replaced. As a result, smooth, young skin slowly becomes thinner and wrinkled over time. As collagen deteriorates, it produces certain peptides. Peptides send a “message” to your skin that it has lost collagen and needs to generate more. When skin care peptides are applied topically, your skin “thinks” that it is a collagen break down product and that your body needs to make new collagen. So you can successfully minimize wrinkles and give your skin a more youthful appearance by applying skin care peptides that trigger the production of collagen. It is therefore important to use a good peptide wrinkle cream.
I recently developed MDS Skin Care here at Murrieta Day Spa and the key ingredient in my products are peptides. Peptides are easily absorbed into the skin which makes them a perfect skin care ingredient. Also, knowing the amazing benefits of peptides it was important to me to make sure my clients had products that would purify, relax, nourish, stimulate, hydrate, and protect the skin. Through the long process of developing MDS Skin Care I am proud to say it does all of these things very well!
It is vital to take care of our skin at every age. Frequent facials and quality skin care are essential in preserving a youthful complexion. Make sure you take the time and invest in your skin! Preventing damage will always be easier and more effective then treating damage.
