Peptides: The New Anti-Ageing Miracle?


We all want to prevent the premature signs of skin ageing and one of the most effective, skin-changing ingredients in the skincare industry is PEPTIDES.

I have a feeling Peptides are going to be the next big thing in skincare, like how we now love our Vitamin A for anti-ageing results.

However, at the moment, not everyone is fully aware of the amazing results that can be achieved with the use of peptides in skincare. Well, I actually work as a Skin Therapist and still, when I hear the word "peptides", the first thing that comes to mind is the image a big buff, muscle guy - since peptides are widely used for muscle growth.

But they have a lot more uses than that! Peptides play an important role in the prevention of skin ageing when used in skincare products.

What is a Peptide?

Peptides are short chains of amino acids, naturally produced by our body, that work as the building blocks of protein. Some of the proteins they help build are collagen, elastin and kerastin - all essential for our skin's strength and health.

How do peptides work?


When applied to the skin, Peptides act as little “messengers” between skin cells, triggering them to perform certain functions such as building collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. They basically change your skin's behaviour at a cellular level.

Popular neurotransmission inhibiting peptides include Argireline, syn-ake, and snap-8.

So remember the buff, muscle guy that comes to mind when we think "peptides"? Well, you can think of Peptides for the skin as the "bodybuilding" of skincare - the more we use Peptides in our skincare regime, the stronger and healthier our skin will become over time!
