What is a Peptide

Peptides are one of the most promising anti-aging powerhouse discoveries

Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin. When peptides form a long chain of amino acids, they become proteins. When they are in a short chain of amino acids, they are able to penetrate the top layer of our skin and send signals to our cells to let them know how to function. Lets talk about a few of the most common and most effective forms of peptides:

-Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness. When collagen breaks down in the skin (from age and environmental factors like the sun and stress), wrinkles form. Peptides applied topically to the skin can send a signal to collagen to prompt the formation of new collagen.

-Copper peptides, reduce inflammation. 

-Neuropeptides which claim to relax facial muscles, therefore reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Think non-evasive wrinkle reducer instead of  BOTOX!
