Do you want to know more about how peptides and hyaluronic acid can contribute to anti-aging treatments for all skin types? Read on and we'll tell you everything you need to know!
Since we're talking about the effects that peptides and hyaluronic acid have on your skin, we first need to establish what these ingredients actually do. Peptides are the building blocks of the natural "collagen" that keeps our skin looking youthful, but as we age this collagen becomes less abundant.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in our bodies which acts as a lubricant, retaining moisture in the cells as well as providing structural support for tissues. This combination of collagen and hyaluronic acid is known as "elastin" and is essential for the skin's elasticity. As we age, elastin becomes less abundant, which can lead to wrinkles and other skin issues – pellucid peeling is a common side effect of aging. Now that we've established what peptides and hyaluronic acid are, let's see how they might contribute to anti-aging treatments for those concerned about aging.
Regarding PEPTIDES…peptides have been shown to have a very potent anti-inflammatory effect as well as being capable of stimulating collagen production in the body. In addition to this, peptides do not appear to be as irritating as other anti-aging ingredients such as retinol and vitamin C. In our review of peptides, we discovered that hyaluronic acid has been shown to stimulate collagen production in the body, as well as being capable of stimulating deeper penetration by other ingredients. If you want to build collagen and keep your skin looking young, both peptides and hyaluronic acid are wonderful ingredients for anti-aging treatments.
So, how do peptides and hyaluronic acid work?
Your skin needs collagen to stay firm, yet supple. As you age, your skin's ability to generate collagen is slowed by the breakdown of elastin. This leads to wrinkling and sagging of the epidermis (outer layer of skin). Peptides are amino acids that will help your body produce more collagen. Collagen is what gives your skin its elasticity. The more peptides you apply directly to your face, the better chance you have at preventing wrinkles and sagging in the future.
How can you add peptides and hyaluronic acid to your routine?
A wonderful way to get your peptides and hyaluronic acid is to choose a serum that includes these actives. Most people choose to use separate serums and layer them. The best way to do it is to use a multi-peptide serum with hyaluronic acid. Serumize Peptide Quench serum is wonderful way to start. It’s a dynamic blend of 12 performing peptides that refine the appearance of wrinkles, uneven skin tone, texture and promotes elasticity + firmness to the skin. With efficient hydration via hyaluronic acid, this peptide serum helps to brighten and guard the appearance of the skin against exhaustive environmental antagonists. It also addresses the skin’s natural collagen properties.
