What Are Peptides and How Do They Improve Your Skin?
Peptides are often used in skincare products, particularly anti-ageing beauty products, thanks to their effectiveness.
If you’re unfamiliar with peptides and how they boost your skin, hold tight. In this blog post, we’re going to investigate the science behind peptides and why you should use them in your beauty routine.
What are Peptides?
Naturally found in the skin, peptides are short-chain amino acids which encourage your skin to produce collagen – the main protein found in your body and a skin building block which makes your skin feel firmer, plumper and more youthful.
There are various peptides, each made up of a specific combination of amino acids. Cosmetic research has revealed that each peptide works in a unique way to give the skin what it desires.
With no peptides in your skin, wrinkles, fine lines, loss of elasticity and an uneven skin texture occurs.
How are Peptides used in Skincare Products?
Peptides work well in skincare products as they help your skin to produce collagen. As we grow older, collagen production declines – one of the reasons why your skin becomes wrinkled as you age.
As peptides are amino acids, they form collagen type proteins to firm and plump your skin. Peptides help to enhance elasticity, boost hydration, and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Peptides are often used in serums and moisturisers to penetrate into your skin to improve your complexion. Research has shown that using peptides enhances skin smoothness and helps to alleviates the appearance of wrinkles.
How Peptides Work Best
Peptides work best when formulated with other ingredients to restore and rejuvenate your skin.
While peptides are highly effective, they can’t perform every skincare duty. Live Skincare uses peptides in the Day & Night Moisturiser alongside hyaluronic acid and green tea extract. Using these ingredients, antioxidant activity and hydration is increased, leaving your skin smoother, firmer and more radiant.
If you’re searching for a moisturiser to target wrinkles, sun damage and dehydration, Live Skincare Day & Night Moisturiser revitalises your complexion to promote youthfulness and luminosity.
