A peptide is a type of amino acid that is naturally in your skin, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin helping to maintain healthy skin. Known as a “plumper” it repairs skin at the elastin levels and promotes collagen – without the need to injure the skin or cause inflammation.
When using a peptide the skin thinks it is experiencing a breakdown of collagen internally therefore prompts the body to make more collagen. Peptides also promote moisture to the outer most layer of the skin and lock it in.
Over time the skin will start to look plumper, brighter, tighter and smoother which is a direct result of the increase in collagen.
