Do Peptides Work in Skincare?
Allow celebrity facialist and skincare guru, Joanna Vargas, to give you the peptides pep-talk to combat wrinkles and leave your skin more supple, youthful, and plump then ever before.
What do Peptides do, anyway? They send the signal. These tiny chains of amino acids are building blocks that notify skin cells to produce more of your skin’s most important proteins like collagen, elastin and keratin. So essentially, peptides are mighty little skin firming and wrinkle smoothing igniters!
Here are three Peptide-packed products that will leave your skin pep-ared to glow brighter…
- The Joanna Vargas Bright Eye Hydrating Mask. The more peptides found in a product, the better, and this mask has got 5 to target different signs of aging all at once! The peptides contained in this eye opener will reinforce elasticity and prevent the delicate skin around the eye from aging. Meanwhile, Matrixyl 3000 will stimulate collagen production, Arbutin will assist with skin lightening and evening out pigmentation, and licorice extract will hydrate and sooth… So eye-conic!
- The Joanna Vargas Forever Glow Anti-Aging Face Mask. A favorite among clients, this extraordinary mask has A LOT going on and its name pretty much says it all. On its long list of benefits are Penta-Peptides which reinforce the skin’s elasticity. This mask is also great for strengthening capillary walls, improving skin circulation, evening pigmentation, and hydrating the skin. One of its main ingredients is kelp, which is rich in skin-loving vitamins such as A,C,E, and B. Kelp also contains magic minerals like zinc, calcium, and magnesium.
- The Joanna Vargas Bright Eye Firming Mask: These jelly-like eye pads are super cool in every sense of the word. On their list of ingredients is a peptide called Hexapeptide 8, which prevents the formation of wrinkles around the eye area. These two under eye patches will assist in fine line prevention and diminishment, hydrate, stimulate collagen and de-puff.
For more peptides, they can also be ingested via various supplements like vitamins and smoothie powders. Collagen peptide supplements will also reduce wrinkles too. As your collagen levels rise, your skin will be and look more plump. This will reduce fine lines in the face and neck area. Peptides will help your skin to rejuvenate from years of wear and tear.
So yes, the precious peptides are on your side…
