Taking care of your skin is very important is you want to have a beautiful complexion!
Peptides and retinoid are very important ingredients for anti-aging purposes.
There are various active ingredients known to have regenerating effects in skin cells helping to slow down degenerative processes as they occur in the aging skin. Regenerative processes may include stimulation of the production of proteins (e.g. collagen, elastin), prevention of water loss, stimulation of the skin's blood circulation, replenishing the subepidermis with natural lipids, and maintenance of the natural homeostasis of the skin cell. Antioxidants like, for example, vitamin C and vitamin E are usually also used in anti-aging cosmetic products.
You need to use skin care products to improve the structural integrity of the skin and nourish the skin. Good skin care products leads to skin compactness, reduces appearance of wrinkles, increases tonicity & firmness.
Skin may appear darker than normal and may be blotchy, uneven areas, or patches of brown to gray discoloration or freckling. Skin pigmentation disorders occur because the body produces either too much or too little melanin, a pigment produced by melanocytes. Increased melanin production, also known as hyperpigmentation, is often referred to as melasma (general term describing darkening of the skin), chloasma (discolorations caused by hormones) or solar lentigines (darkened spots on the skin caused by the sun). In addition, hyperpigmentation can be caused by skin damage, such as remnants of blemishes, wounds or rashes.
Skin-lighteners (like bearberry leaves extract and undecylenoyl phenylalanine) inhibit melanin tyrosinase or melanotropin and reduce or block some amount of melanin production. Many treatments use a combination of topical lotions or gels containing melanin-inhibiting ingredients along with a sunscreen, and a prescription retinoid. Depending on how the skin responds to these treatments exfoliants, either in the form of topical cosmetic or chemical peels, and lasers may be used.
Did you know that the peptide (Tripeptide-5), as been found to stimulate of collagen synthesis in the skin and improve significantly the appearance of any type of wrinkle. Has good skin firming & moisturizing properties. May be able to reduce appearance of stretch marks. In clinical study with 60 volunteers a reduction of 350% of the appearance of wrinkles was shown after use of 84 days. May be alternate to collagen injections used in lip products to help stimulate collagen synthesis.
Also Hydrolyzed Collagen Protein, is a unique collagen protein concentrate. Manufactured via an enzymatic hydrolysis process, mixture of straight chain polypeptide with an average molecular weight of 2000. It offers excellent moisturizing properties and can increase the density of collagen fibrils and also fibroblast density (the fibroblasts produce collagen).
