What Are Peptides & Why Are They in My Skincare?

Peptides are a popular ingredient among skincare brands due to their healthy aging properties. Peptides are present in every human cell and they work as messengers to communicate specific functions such as stimulating the skin to produce collagen and elastin. Collagen is the foundation that supports your skin and gives it that firm feeling, while elastin allows our skin to bounce back. As we age, we slowly lose collagen and these messengers (peptides) start to slow down. By applying peptides topically we are essentially tricking the skin into thinking collagen was lost and signals it to make more.

Peptides are more effective in products like serums, eye creams, and moisturizers that sit on your skin for long periods of time verses a cleanser that will be washed off. As much as we would love a quick fix or a miracle overnight, consistency is key and keeping up on your skincare regimen is a big part in supporting your healthy aging journey.
