What do Peptides do for your skin?

Tuesday, March 22, 2016 - 6:56am

Peptides are “messages” made from chains of amino acids and signal your skin to make more collagen.

One of the most popular signal peptide for cosmetic use is palmitoyl pentapeptide (Matrixyl) a neuropeptide that reduces fine lines very well. It can be found in many peptide skin care products and is quite effective in improving the appearance of fine lines and give your skin a more youthful appearance.

It is therefore important to use a good peptide serum or moisturizer as peptides give cumulative results and are best applied in serums or creams for a long period of time. You can start to see results in four to twelve weeks. The results get better and better the longer u use them. Likewise, as soon as you stop using them, your skin will return to its normal appearance.
