Peptides in Skin Care Products

Skin Care Product Ingredients today include some of the most effective technology for anti aging and skin rejuvenation. Some of our specialists favorite ingredients include, but are not limited to: glycolic acid, vitamin c (stabilized), hyaluronic acid and now, peptides!

Why Peptides? As we age, environmental factors, hormones, sun damage etc. cause our skin to produce less collagen and elastin. It is collagen that supports the structure of our skin making it firm and resilient. Glycolic acid has the ability to stimulate collagen but must be carefully selected in skin care products (often buffered down so much it is ineffective) but higher ph products such as Jan Marini bioclear cream and bioglycolic eye cream are highly effective due to the combination of high percentage ingredients.

The recent development of Peptides (fragments of proteins) further enhance the ability to stimulate collagen, allowing us to offset many of the signs of aging.

There are many types of peptides (some more effective then others) and finding it at the bottom of your skin care ingredient list, likely means the product contains such a minimal amount. However, the other ingredients may have benefits to address skin rejuvenation so don’t let that deter you unless you are looking for a fairly concentrated product. As clinical skin specialists we research and personally use all ingredients based on our clients needs and expectations to be sure to provide them with products that produce results.

We have supplies a list of some different peptides and how they vary:

Tetra and Pentapeptides-(favorites) stimulate collagen to plump and firm the outermost layer of the skin. Relax facial muscles that contribute to expression lines and furrows. Examples: Rated *Favorites- Jan Marini Age Interv. Regeneration Booster, Dr. Schrammek High Perfection Eye Cream, Dermaquest Peptide Mobilizer.

Hexapeptides-Relax wrinkles to calm muscle contractions that contribute to our facial expressions that result as deep furrows and wrinkles.

Tripeptide– (SynAke Trademark)-Also relaxes facial muscles to offset facial expression lines/wrinkles.

Copper Peptides– Healing and repairing peptides to active the skins healing abilities while stimulating collagen. Ex: (Neova Creme de la Copper & most Neova products).

Many refer to Peptides as “Botox without the Pain”. Botox is a relatively quick result to minimize lines and wrinkles, that is not always without side effects, bruising etc. Peptides are a non invasive alternative by which the results are cumulative and continue to improve skin over time. Jan Marini Regeneration Booster also contains Telomerase Enzyme. A unique anti aging ingredient that further compliments peptides and resets the cells “aging clocks”.

Younger Looking Eyes Are Possible

It’s a fact these days that younger looking eyes are possible with just the right eye makeup and a bit of health-type steps. For one, gaining a youthful look around the eyes can be done as long as one make sure to avoid using dark or heavy makeup because it tends to age people greater than what they really are. Remember to consistently take care of the eyes to avoid premature wrinkling.

There are some well regarded health techniques that can help, too. For one, health experts are correct when they advise people to stay hydrated if for no other reason than to be healthy. Skin that is well hydrated tends not to wrinkle nearly as easily and will not dry out as quickly. Dry skin can lead to unsightly wrinkles even when one is young, so keep that in mind when it comes to hydration.

Another great way to bring a youthful appearance to the eyes is to pay attention to the things around it such as the eyebrows. Take a look at them and groom them carefully so that they take on an attractive shape. Most makeup experts say that keeping eyebrows nicely shaped can help take years off of the face. Eliminate any hairs that stray outside of the natural brow line, for one.

The use of makeup, when applied properly, is probably the quickest way to bring a more youthful look to the eyes. Take the time to ensure that the makeup work that is done is simple yet complete and look to use cosmetics to improve appearance but does not bring any sort of color to the area around the eyes. Blend in cosmetics so that they look smooth and do not have layers or lines.

Almost every makeup expert will also say that anybody who is trying to keep the eyes useful also needs to curl the eyelashes. Combine curling with the application of mascara to the top lashes and use Brown-black or brown mascara only. Completely black mascara tends to put years on when it comes to the appearance of the eyes and how they might look to others.

Additionally, the Internet is full of health remedies that can assist in taking years from the eyes and many of them are well-known tricks and tips. Just go online and look for a couple of the better ones and use them consistently. In the end, the two best things that one can do to bring younger looking eyes about is to stay hydrated and to avoid dark eye makeup above everything else.A
