Peptides in facial care products

Peptides are a relatively “young” but highly promising ingredient in cosmetics. When this component was discovered, it was initially used only for medical purposes, and after a few decades, it became popular in the beauty market.

Korean cosmetics with peptides are increasingly appearing on shelves along with facial care products in the homes of modern women. Peptides are actively used in facial cleansers, masks, creams or hair care products. Today we will review why cosmetics with peptides are useful in facial care.

Peptides are key helpers in the fight for skin youth and beauty. Peptides fight both the first and the clear signs of aging and have a preventive effect. Peptides are proteins made up of amino acid chains. Generally speaking, peptides are a building block of the body involved in the regulation of physiological processes, for example peptides signal the skin to produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

The synthesis of peptides in the body decreases with age and from 25 to 30 years this process slows down, so cosmetics with peptides are used to stimulate skin processes.

This active substance has the unique ability to penetrate quickly and easily through the stratum corneum. In addition, the peptides are responsible for cell regeneration and renewal, promote skin elasticity, soothe the skin, smooth the skin tone and brighten pigment spots.

It depends on your skin condition when it is worth starting to use facial care products with peptides. You should first pay attention to the condition of the facial skin. If you notice the first wrinkles and a decrease in elasticity, it shows that it is time to start using products with peptides. Peptide cosmetics are usually started around 30 or 35 years old.
