WHAT IS A PEPTIDE??

Have you ever wondered what all the fuss is about Peptides? What are peptides and how do they work?

Peptides are chains of amino acids and are anti-wrinkle agents. They work by signaling the skin to make more collagen. As we age collagen is destroyed. Applying peptides directly to your skin is a way to trick your skin into thinking that it has lost collagen recently and needs to make more.

Look for products with peptides in them but be careful of the percentage claims. If a product claims 60% peptides beware!! Many of those peptides are not at full strength. a marketing hype.

Some of the latest peptides for fines lines and wrinkles to look for are: Matrixyl, Argilene and for the eye area look for products with Regu age and Eyleliss.
