Peptides...Hype or Happy dance?

What is a Peptide and what does it do for our skin?

Peptides are amino acids and in turn, they are the building blocks of protein in the skin. What's exciting about Peptides? In short, Peptides penetrate deeply into the skin and stimulate collagen production. No easy task. When they are formed in specific formations, they create specific proteins. That's good news for our skin. They are important in the care of our skin because without them the skin can't sustain elasticity and firmness. It's important to note, however, that Peptides can't do it all on their own. More importantly, don't fall for the hype that one ingredient is the answer. There is no one Peptide or a combination of Peptides that is solely responsible for turning back the clock on aging skin. Safe, effective skincare is more complicated than that.

Botanical extracts, nourishing antioxidants, non-sensitizing ingredients are also powerhouses that should be considered as well. When these amazing ingredients are masterfully formulated, along with Peptides, there is no doubt that the skin shows visible results.

Peptides, as research increasingly shows, are proving their ability to aid in revitalizing the look of the skin. These proteins appear to be strengthening the skin barrier.  This should have us sitting up and taking notice because strong skin is wonderfully resilient. 

New skincare advances are being realized every day and Peptides are showing very impressive results. 

At the end of the day? It's a combination of amazing ingredients that will ultimately benefit the skin the most. Peptides, it turns out, really do deserve a happy dance.
