With time, you may notice that your skin looks drier and less radiant than it used to. Today we’re going to talk about peptides, strings of amino acids which are the building blocks of proteins. Peptides can help keep your skin looking radiant and youthful. They also act as antioxidants, helping to repair damage to your skin.

The first thing peptides do is help strengthen your skin barrier. This is the outside layer of your skin that helps keep bacteria out of your pores, removes toxins and even protects your skin from the sun's harmful rays which speed up the aging process. This is an important step to fight acne and shield against dirt and bacteria. 

The second reason that peptides are important components of an anti-aging skin care routine is that they help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Peptides stimulate collagen and elastin production to keep the skin looking plump, reducing the appearance of fine lines. Both collagen and copper peptides help your body make collagen and elastin, proteins found in healthy skin. When the skin is firmer and plumper, your complexion becomes younger-looking and wrinkles are less noticeable. 

Lastly, peptides help ease inflammation. They help get rid of redness and even out the appearance of the skin. This process begins by healing damaged, broken skin. Their anti-inflammatory properties make them ideal for people with dry, sensitive, easily irritated skin.
