How do peptides act on our faces?
Before you choose a Botox treatment, try peptide cream!
Peptides in cosmetics are an increasing hit as they smooth wrinkles. Peptides increase elasticity and accelerate healing, and their use stimulates collagen production, relaxes muscles and reduces wrinkles. Not only do they act to delay the first signs of aging, but they also help with already damaged skin.
PEPTIDES IN COSMETICS – WHY ARE THEY IMPORTANT?
In earlier texts, we explained briefly what peptides are – a set of amino acids, respectively fragments of protein from which our skin is built, and also our tissues.
Collagen is the most prevalent protein in the body composed of chain-like amino acids. For collagen you have certainly already heard of because it is used in a variety of creams and beverages with the aim of achieving toned skin and a youthful appearance.
The breakdown of collagen creates short segments of amino acids, and peptides are precisely these short chains of amino acids that send a signal to the skin for skin stem cells to start working, i.e. production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
The result of these processes is slowing down the aging of the skin, as it promotes intensive restoration of key elements responsible for the youthful appearance of the skin.
PEPTIDES IN APRIVE COSMETICS
Our AgeLess regenerating cream is enriched with a complex of 3.2% peptides. The composition consists of a peptide matrix – tripeptides Pal-GHK, tetrapeptides Pal GQPR and dipeptide carnosine. It has been scientifically proven that the peptides Pal-GHK and Pal GQPR stimulate the synthesis of collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and fibronectin. They facilitate in the healing process of damaged tissue, participate in the regeneration, construction and revitalization of the skin. They work in the prevention of aging, and the reduction of existing wrinkles, and the skin becomes firmer, smoother and more elastic.
Dipeptide carnosine, also the active ingredient of AgeLess cream, has long been associated with cell aging suppression, and inducing effects of rejuvenation and protection against telomeres reduction.
It has been scientifically proven that it can delay aging because of its significant antiglycation activity. Glycation is the process of binding sugar molecules that bind to skin proteins, networking into a rigid structure, so elastic molecules lose their essential properties and functionality. This process creates free radicals that damage collagen and elastin, which ultimately results in the appearance of wrinkles on the skin.
The benefits of peptides are numerous and exceptional due to their potency of smoothing wrinkles, tightening sagging skin and boosting hydration. Although they are inherently highly potent, they are best at synergy with other active ingredients. Then their strength completely comes forward. The combination of peptides, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid will allow neutralization of the skin agingprocess, promote long-lasting and deep hydration i.e. anything the skin needs in the prevention of aging and maintenance of youthfulness.
