Peptides are proteins composed of long or short chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Peptides may be natural or synthetic. Most peptides used in cosmetics are synthetic because lab engineering these ingredients gives chemists greater control on their stability and effectiveness in skin-care products. One more example of the natural route not always being what's best for skin.
In battling the signs of aging, it’s important to incorporate peptide creams and peptide serums in order to help encourage the skin to rebuild lost Collagen.
Most peptides function as moisture-binding agents and almost all of them have theoretical cell-communicating ability to help skin repair itself. Those are exciting benefits, so long as you don't rely on peptides alone. It takes a great mix of anti-aging ingredients for skin to look its smoothest, firmest, and, yes, its youngest.
Peptides are good ingredients to see in skin-care products, though we still have much to learn about how to best utilize peptides for maximum skin-care benefits.
Peptides can be great anti-aging ingredients for skin care products. But as with all other ingredients, they're not the only ones you need to make your skin appear as young and healthy as you'd like. Take those seemingly fantastic claims on products with peptides with a grain of salt, and remember that using products with a cocktail of great ingredients (plus daily sun protection) is the best thing you can do for the health and appearance of your skin. Dr Rosemberg, MD. highly recommend creams or serum with peptides. One of Dr Rosemberg favorites is the I'm Fabulous organic and kosher Peptides Collagen Cream.
