Peptides are compounds containing amino acids. They are a powerful ingredient in anti-aging skin care. You can purchase a variety of skin care products that contain peptides.
Peptides stimulate collagen production in skin cells and help prevent the breakdown of proteins in cell membranes.
Peptides help develop a support structure for cells and help the skin to remain supple and youthful looking.
Three major peptides used in skin care products are pentapeptides, copper peptides and neuropeptides. Pentapeptides help to reduce wrinkles while copper peptides are useful in healing damaged skin. Neuropeptides also work as an anti-wrinkle agent.
Using skin care products containing peptides can help your skin stay youthful looking, improve smoothness and combat wrinkles.
Several peptide skin care products can be purchased. Some of the skin care products that include peptides are Olay Regnerist, TNS Recovery Complex, Jan Marini Recover-E and TGF Serum.
