Q & A: What are Peptides?

Here’s the science: Collagen is a Protein comprised of Amino Acids which are linked together with Peptide Bonds. Peptides play an important role in helping to replace lost collagen.

How do PEPTIDES work in skin care?

As we age, Collagen and moisture deplete in the skin. The strong cell walls that maintain a youthful complexion become thinner and less capable of keeping the skin tight.

Peptides help restore a more youthful appearance in the skin by communicating with the cells, signaling them to create more collagen. They essentially trick the skin into believing it has recently lost collagen.

Continued use of Peptides in skin care can help:

  • Encourage increased Collagen production;
  • Inspire a more even skin tone and visibly smoother skin;
  • Restore a youthful, luminous glow; and
  • Improve skin’s overall appearance.

What are the best Peptides for skin care?

We suggest looking for high-performing Peptides such as Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7. The latter of these two is believed to work by muting the effect of chemical messengers known as interleukins that trigger inflammatory responses in the skin. It may also reduce the cumulative damage that occurs due to UV light, pollution, and internal stress.

Both of these powerful peptides are used in Mario Badescu’s Peptide Renewal Serum and Peptide Renewal Cream.

As a long-time writer, editor, and esthetician, I’ve had an ongoing love affair with Mario Badescu Skin Care for years. I can usually be found reading, knitting, painting, trying new beauty and skin care products, and telling everyone to wear more sunscreen. These days, I’m feeling super grateful for the opportunity to share more Mario with the world! I believe that better skin care changes lives. For more about me, visit my Google+ Page.
