Our skin is comprised mostly of collagen which provides a foundation and thickening of our skin. As we age, our skin tends to thin out and begins to sag because we lose collagen. As collagen deteriorates, it produces certain peptides. When these skin care peptides are applied topically, it triggers your skin to produce more collagen. I have found that using skincare and eye care products that contain peptides greatly minimizes wrinkles and gives my skin a more youthful appearance. It doesn’t happen overnight but in time it makes a difference.
Over the years I noticed more and more anti-aging products referencing peptides and, in particular, Matrixyl. Matrixyl (also known as palmitoyl- or oligopeptide pentapeptide) seems to be the most popular peptide in anti-aging products. You will find that after using products containing this game-changing ingredient, it starts to reduce fine lines. Argireline (also known as Acetyl hexapeptide) is marketed as a topical alternative to Botox as it causes facial muscles to relax and minimizes wrinkles.
There’s been lots of talk of neuropeptides which are important because they have the ability to penetrate your skin more deeply to do the most good.
So why not start using an anti-aging product that contains these little gems. If you don’t want to spend a fortune on another product in your beauty regimen, I recommend Derma-E Deep Wrinkle Peptide Moisturizer. I love this product line as it’s natural, paraben free and AFFORDABLE. One of my favorite peptide eye creams that truly gives results is Dr. Brandt’s DNA eye cream. I’ve honestly received compliments after using this peptide filled cream after just a short period of use. Find a product that you like or comes recommended from an estethician that contains peptides. Use it twice a day for a few months and see the difference for yourself. Then invite me to your peprally for peptides!
Warrior tip: If your face needs a little pick-me-up after a restless night’s sleep, try filling a big bowl with ice water and dunk or splash your face. This is an old Hollywood trick that circulates blood flow to awaken the skin and bring some color to the face.
