Everything you need to know about Peptides in skincare

Peptides are amino acids that are building blocks of certain proteins such as collagen, keratin and elastin. These proteins are responsible for your skin's texture, resilience and strength. Peptides are most commonly found in your moisturisers and serums. When using a moisturiser or serum that contains peptides it can lead to firmer and more youthful skin. 

Every year after you turn 30, you lose 1% of your skin’s natural collagen. So, it’s important you keep topping up those Collagen reserves to maintain a healthy balance and young, fresh-looking skin.

What are the benefits of peptides? 
  • Improved skin barrier 
  • Eases inflammation

  • Increases skin firmness
    What do peptides actually do? 
    Peptides play a vital role in creating proteins such as collagen, keratin and elastin. When you use a skincare product that contains peptides it can help your skin to be firmer, more plump and youthful.

    Where does it fit into my daily skincare routine? 

    We recommend using peptides in your night time skincare routine. Apply your peptide serum to damp skin after cleansing. The reason we recommend adding peptides to your night time routine is because at night your skin regenerates naturally with collagen and elastin. 

    Our products that contain peptides are our collagen c serum, bb cream and multi vitamin moisturiser
