Peptides are proteins found in a variety of skin care products, including many anti-aging serums. This is due to the many ways in which they improve the overall health of your skin.
Peptides and Skin Elasticity
Skin, though highly durable, is prone to show signs of wear as one ages. It’s a natural process, the reasons for which are very simple. As you age, you have less available collagen and elastin. These are proteins in your skin that allow it to stay firm, supple and retain its elasticity. The lack of these proteins, therefore, mean looser, more creased skin.
The presence of peptides helps to counter this aging process by stimulating the production of naturally occurring collagen and elastin, allowing your skin to retain the health of youth.
Peptides in the Treatment of Dark Circles
Slowing the aging process isn’t their only benefit however, as peptides also result in a higher efficiency in the working of your lymphatic system. What does this mean? Well, lymphatic circulation is responsible for the removal of any unwanted waste your cells produce. Peptides optimize this process, resulting in healthier skin overall, with the added bonus of tackling any discoloration you may have under your eyes from lack of sleep. Furthermore, as your skin thickens due to higher levels of both collagen and elastin, this lowers, if not eliminates, any inflammation under your eyes.
Skin products that contain peptides not only work, but are also painless alternatives to more radical treatments that achieve the same results, young, healthy skin. By using them, you’re introducing a naturally occurring substance into your body that helps your cells function to the best of their ability resulting in skin that is not only youthful in appearance, but clearer and smoother.
