Fighting the signs of aging skin
is something of interest to people of all ages. Finding a way to prevent those signs, especially finding a way to repair the damage of aging, is a goal that can be accomplished. One of the new technologies in skin care is the use of peptides to improve the appearance of your skin.
What are peptides and how do they work? Peptides are chains of proteins made of amino acids. Peptides target particular cells in our bodies and regulate many of our body’s systems. They are involved in how our hormones function and our immune systems, and they communicate with cells to tell them how to respond to various conditions. It’s believed they are an important component of wound-healing and may affect conditions of the skin.
Peptides are produced in our bodies naturally and they can also be produced synthetically. Peptides used in cosmetics are generally more stable and effective than those generated naturally. In this case, the natural product of our bodies is not as effective as that produced externally.
Peptides Help Aging Skin to Repair Itself
Peptides are moisture-binding agents that help cells communicate with each other to aid in the ability of aging skin
to repair itself. Peptides help the skin produce collagen. And why do you want your skin to produce more collagen? Because collagen, a protein found throughout your body, helps to provide support and structure to your skin, bones and muscles. It holds your skin in place so it doesn’t sag, fills it so it doesn’t wrinkle and keeps it at a youthful level of thickness to keep it from thinning. In other words, collagen is what makes your skin firm, elastic and young-looking. About 20 percent of your body is made up of protein and of that protein, about 30 percent is made of collagen.
As we age, our bodies lose the ability to produce collagen. By using a collagen product we can replace the natural collagen with collagen made externally. Collagen is used in anti-aging products
, but it is also used for medical purposes, such as healing and repairing damaged body tissue. In fact, applying medical collagen dressings to wounds attracts new skin cells to the wound sites and facilitates healing. Our ability to produce collagen is also decreased by exposure to ultraviolet light, one more reason to always use a sunscreen.
More Collagen Production Repairs and Improves Aging Skin
is also affected by smoking and high sugar consumption, which also decrease collagen production. Your skin needs collagen – a topically applied peptide treatment helps to stimulate collagen production. More collagen production improves the tone of your skin, its elasticity, its firmness and its hydration. Eminence offers one of the best products to increase collagen production in the Arctic Berry Peptide Radiance Cream
. Its ingredients combine to offer the benefits of peptides as well as powerful antioxidants and age-defying benefits. It helps to reduce inflammation and redness as it softens and soothes your skin. When you look in your mirror you won’t see peptides or proteins or collagen – just the results that repair and improve aging skin
