If there is something we all want and are in constant search for, it’s younger skin. I know I am personally a sitting pigeon for any cream, serum or oil that promises to make my skin glow or look younger. This is something easy to see from my bathroom cabinets that are stocked with anti-aging and radiance boosting creams, most at least half full because I get what I refer to as “skincare ADD” and buy another every couple weeks. My latest obsession for skincare are peptides for skin that looks plump and wrinkle free!
For those following the latest trends in anti-aging, you have certainly heard of the all miraculous peptide creams that are available. Everything you read right now is all about peptides and how they help to boost collagen and create younger looking skin. You may ask yourself, “What are peptides?” and “How do they help my skin look younger?
The answer is simple, peptides are active molecules found within your skin that help to decrease fine lines, wrinkles, and help boost your skin’s natural healing process. Our skin is made up of mostly collagen, long strands of amino acids that are interconnected; like a beautiful diamond necklace! As our skin gets older, these collagen links start to break down and our skin loses the ability to replace them. This is the reason we start seeing wrinkles and fine lines; because we loose our natural collagen and regenerative processes. By using topical peptide creams, our skin is given the opportunity to repair these broken collagen links and regenerate our skin’s natural youth.
Currently, there are between 30-40 different types of peptides for skin being used in anti-aging creams and serums. You can find peptide creams anywhere from your department store to your local pharmacy. They are truly everywhere and at every price range. These are your go to creams and serums for everything anti-aging! So don’t miss out on this truly beautiful trend and find the perfect peptide cream for your skin.
Some of my personal favorite peptide creams include:
YSL Youth Liberator Nutri Cream: This is a peptide-enriched night treatment that helps to plump your skin, boost radiance and diminish wrinkles. Packed with peptides, it helps to create more youthful skin so that you wake up looking rested and truly youthful. Can be used by all skin types, however it does have a rich texture, so you may want to keep that in mind in case you have oily skin.
Neova Crème de la Copper: This is such an amazing cream, packed with copper peptides for skin. It helps to diminish wrinkles and create more youthful skin. I love how lightweight this cream is and how it truly absorbs into your skin, leaving it soft and oil free.
Peter Thomas Roth Un-wrinkle Fast Acting Serum: If there is one line that is truly all about anti aging, it’s the PTR line. This serum is amazing and packed with peptides for skin that is youthful and smooth! It refreshes your skin, instantly absorbs and truly gives you an instant lift for immediate results!
