What are Peptides and why are they great for your skin?
Posted on March 16 2015
Peptides are proteins composed of long or short chains of amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein.
A protein that is already in our skin, that works wonders alongside peptides, is collagen. Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness. When collagen breaks down in the skin (from age and environmental factors like the sun and stress), wrinkles form. Peptides applied topically to the skin can send a signal to collagen to prompt the formation of new collagen, and voila, you have the appearance of more youthful, supple skin.
Applying peptides directly to your skin is a way to trick your skin into thinking that it has lost collagen recently and needs to make more. This is where our Spa Luxe Collagen Maks step in.
Our masks are pepetide-rich and when applied regular, your skin will have a noticeable change in texture and firmness.
