How Do Peptides Work?

And Why You Need A Peptide Eye Cream.

Eye creams have all sorts of ingredients in them.  A popular one these days is vitamin C. You may have heard of face and eye cream with peptides in it for years. Peptides are amazing little particles made of whole strings of amino acids. These amino acids help to rebuild your skin from the inside out, create a youthful glow and plump fresh look.

What Are Peptides?

Amino acids or peptides are building blocks of our entire bodies. We are made of protein, which is what a string of amino acid consists of. These proteins keep our nails strong, our hair luxurious and our skin wrinkle-free. When we begin to lose these amino acids, it shows on our appearance. Skin begins to sag, hair becomes dull and nails break.

“Peptides serve as the building blocks for not only new collagen but also elastin fibers. These fibers are the building blocks of our skin and add to tissue firmness and elasticity.” Dr. Deanne Mraz Robinson.

How Do Peptides Work?

Our body is constantly producing peptides such as collagen. If this is so, then why do we lose them? The fact is that as we age, we lose 1% of our collagen per year. That may not sound like much, but it adds up to a great amount of aging as time passes. When we use a skin cream or products that actively add these properties into our skin again, it helps to boost the amount that we have left. This creates a fuller, more youthful look both almost immediately, and over time. The more skin products you use with peptides, the more peptides you will have in your skin.

How To Get Peptides Into Your Body

So now that you know that you need to add peptides into your body in order to promote healing, younger skin, and all sorts of other bonuses, how does one go about it? The easiest way of introducing amino acids or peptides to your skin is via a topical cream. Good quality skin creams from reputable names have high-quality ingredients, that allow the peptides to break through the acid mantle on your skin and be properly absorbed.

These skin creams can visibly prevent and fight the appearance of bags under the eyes, instantly improve firmness and elasticity, soothe, and decrease the appearance of puffiness.

Not Peptides Alone

As great as peptides are at rebuilding your body and your skin, you need to introduce other ingredients in order to really maintain that youthful look. Vitamin C is a great skin booster for brightness and inflammation reduction. Q-10 is a well-known addition that has been a part of the skin rejuvenating arsenal for many years now. Antioxidants are probably the most needed skin care product ingredient. Every day our skin takes a battering from the sun, pollution, and general everyday life. Antioxidants help to battle free radicals that cause again, resulting in a younger skin when paired with a  good quality peptide cream.
