Peptides for Skin: Your Questions Answered
How Do Peptides for Skin Work?
Peptides may have the ability to reinforce protein content in the body. As we age, our body tends to produce less and less of a specific protein: collagen.
Collagen keeps our skin plump, taut, and bouncy. It is in high production from childhood until our early 20’s but starts to drop to 1% less every year, starting from our 30’s and stops in our 40’s.
Adding peptides to our skincare regimen helps the skin boost collagen production, and some peptide products can even help collagen stores maintain their production levels while supplementing them.
Since peptides are smaller than proteins, they can be easier for the skin in terms of absorption. They work as tiny messengers, giving signals to our skin that there has been an emergency and more collagen is needed.
So when you apply a peptide-rich cream or serum onto your skin, it doesn’t necessarily reverse time or provide a magic cure. Peptide creams help you trick your skin into thinking there’s an injury that needs attending to, and collagen production kicks into overdrive.
What Are the Best Peptides for Skin?
There is not one single kind of peptide for the skin. There are plenty!
This means there are specific types of peptides that help your skin in different ways. That means you can use specific peptide products to zero in on certain skin issues.
Here are some of the peptides for skin:
- Neurotransmitter Peptides
These peptides have a “Botox” like quality. They block chemicals from contracting muscles, which results in smoothing out wrinkles in parts of the face like the forehead.
Argireline is one of the most popular neurotransmitter peptides on the market today.
- Carrier Peptides
These peptides work by delivering minerals to the skin. They help in boosting the production of collagen in the skin.
- Enzyme Inhibitor Peptides
These work by signaling the natural collagen breakdown to slow down. That way, it helps delay the signs of premature aging in the skin
