We all want the best for our skin. So when a “game changer” comes along that truly can do things that other skincare ingredients can’t do, it certainly makes us sit up and take notice. In recent years, research seems to indicate that peptides, a variety of different types of tiny proteins, just might be that game changer.
Today, peptides have moved from the laboratory and into some popular skincare products. To help you understand better why you might want to consider a product with peptides, we asked the skincare and beauty researchers at Kristals Cosmetics.
#1 They Stimulate the Growth of Collagen
The protein collagen is the building block that forms the structure and strength for your skin. And recent research has shown that peptides are more effective at building and stimulating the growth of collagen than many other skincare ingredients. In studies, the effect is almost like botox without the needles, preventing the face from developing fine lines and wrinkles.
#2 They Enable the Skin to Regenerate Faster
Another exciting development with peptides is that the newest formulations almost seem to reset your skin’s biological clock. Skin regenerates and turns over with time, as new skin cells replace the old ones. Of course, this process slows down as you age. But peptides seem to have the ability to speed it back up and make your skin act younger again. This is exciting news in the fight against aging.
#3 They Pair Well with Other Helpful Ingredients in Skincare Products
As our knowledge and use of peptides has progressed through the years, skincare and beauty researchers are realizing how well peptides work synergistically with other ingredients. For example, Kristals Cosmetics has paired the powerful precious metal gold with the cutting edge peptide combination Matrixyl 3000 in their 24K Gold Facial Perfecting Serum for a powerful one-two punch against the signs of aging.
