Imagine a world where youthfulness surrounds us, when young skin is no longer a fad but a way of life and it’s as easy to achieve as going to the grocery store. We may soon be heading in that direction. In this day and age, science is being incorporated into every part of our life, and beauty is no different. Thanks to a chain of amino-acids called peptides, looking young is possible for any woman of any age.
Peptides are defined as smaller chains of proteins made of Amino acids. These shortened forms of proteins aid our skin in its ability to function. Considering that twenty-five percent of our skin is comprised of proteins, is it any wonder that peptides are so useful?
There are three leading peptides in this beauty revolution, according to CellularSkin Rx, a website dedicated to the science behind skin, Argireline, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide, and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3. Each peptide has its own separate but highly effective function to help not only repair skin, but also keep its youthful glow.
Argireline helps to relax facial muscles, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It works almost like a topical botox.
The second primary peptide Palmitoyl Oligopeptides stimulates elastin, collagen, and connective tissues to help make the skin tighter and tauter. Palmitoyl Oligopeptides also enables moisturization of the skin (a main component for younger looking skin).
The last of the three primary peptides Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, not only reverses some of the sun’s damage but also speeds up the healing process of our skin to allow us more youthful looking skin at a much quicker speed.
Many beauty companies are now beginning to combine these peptides to make “end all” beauty products that allow youthful looking skin from all fronts. Women can say goodbye to painful Microdermabrasion, and laser treatments. These new beauty weapons are quickly making headway in the industry.
As technology and research advance, peptide enriched beauty products will allow women to shed decades off their look in a safe and affordable manner.
