Fine lines, sagging skin and lackluster texture are all common complexion concerns and you can spend a lot of time—and money—trying to find the magic product to cure all those ills. You can make that search a lot easier if you invest in skin care that contains peptides and collagen. Both of them are instrumental in maintaining the look of healthy, vibrant skin and should be a part of your daily beauty routine.
A Brief Background on Peptides and Collagen
Peptides have become more and more popular in recent years as their significant role in maintaining radiant skin has been recognized. Peptides are actually made up of amino acids, and these amino acids link together in many different ways to create hundreds of different kinds of peptides. These peptides are the foundation for many different types of protein, but for skin care, perhaps the most important protein is collagen.
Collagen is the most prevalent protein in the body. It does a lot of work for your body that you can’t see—it helps maintain strong joints and tendons, supports the organs and maintains a healthy musculoskeletal system. Collagen also has another function that is very visible—it creates firm and supple skin. Unfortunately, collagen production slows down, for reasons including age and photodamage caused by UV exposure. When collagen production decreases, those nagging signs of skin damage—wrinkles, loss of elasticity and firmness—start to show on your face.
How Peptides and Collagen Can Boost Beautiful Skin
Because collagen is a protein, and because peptides are vital for healthy protein function, peptides are crucial for collagen support. Peptides are considered a cell regulator because they have the potential to stimulate collagen production. More collagen means glowing, youthful-looking skin that is resilient, with a feeling of elasticity and plumpness.
The hundreds of different kinds of peptides that are out there can work on skin in different ways. DERMA E’s collection of peptide and collagen skin care products uses two different peptides with superior benefits. Matrixyl® synthe’6® may help support collagen in order to revitalize the skin’s tone and texture, while Argireline® has the capability to smooth out the appearance of the skin and diminish the look of fine lines. The overall result of using these powerful peptides on a regular basis is the appearance of a transformed complexion that blooms with the look of youth and beauty. These DERMA E products also contain a plant-derived form of collagen called Acacia Seyal Gum Extract, which has wonderful moisturizing benefits for the skin to keep it feeling soft and supple.
Peptides may be the star of a skin care product, but they need a strong supporting cast in order to be the most effective. DERMA E recognizes this by formulating its products with high-quality antioxidants, vitamins and botanicals that work in conjunction with peptides for maximum benefits. Proven antioxidant powerhouses such as green tea and vitamins A, C and E are staples of DERMA E’s peptide and collagen skin care, as well as the plant extract Pycnogenol®. These ingredients combine to nourish skin so that it looks its best.
DERMA E’s peptide and collagen products build and enhance a natural lovely complexion. The Advanced Peptides & Collagen Moisturizer is a terrific way to incorporate these ingredients into your daily skin care regimen because it can be used both day and night, and it also primes the skin with hydration so it’s ready for makeup to be applied—foundation won’t crease around fine lines or highlight uneven rough patches on your face.
Another great twice-daily option, especially if you prefer a more lightweight formulation in your skin care products, is the Advanced Peptides & Collagen Serum. The serum has the same potent active ingredients as the moisturizer, so you can use the serum on its own, under makeup, or layered with other skin care products. If the signs of aging are showing up mainly around your eyes, thanks to crow’s feet or sagginess, then the Advanced Peptides & Collagen Eye Cream can help address those concerns. Your eyes will look bright and revived with this double-action peptide formula especially developed to care for the delicate, thin skin around the eye area.
You can’t have healthy-looking skin without a healthy supply of collagen, and peptides may be one of your best options to help revive the appearance of your complexion. With DERMA E, you can be confident that you are using products that are robust enough to produce noticeable results in the look of your skin while also containing natural ingredients that won’t harm your skin because they are free of agents such as parabens, sulfates and mineral oil. DERMA E’s 100% vegan formulations are all cruelty free and packaged in environmentally friendly materials, so they’re good for you and for the planet. So if you’re not already using peptides and collagen in your skin care, DERMA E is the ideal place to get started on your way to radiant-looking skin.
