Peptides are made up of amino acids. When amino acids are combined in certain formations, they create specific peptides and when peptides are formed in a particular way, they make specific proteins. Proteins like collagen and elastin – the fundamental building blocks of the skin. Without peptides and proteins, our skin would not remain intact. As we age, amino acid chain formation slows down resulting in less collagen and less elastin with skin that doesn’t bounce back as it once did. Introducing peptides into your skincare routine will stimulate collagen production and firm the skin. Peptides can be incorporated into your skincare routine can be done at any age and is for all skin types.
