What are peptides and why do they matter?
Peptides are amino acids that function as the building blocks to protein. They make up the most vital proteins for the skin, such as collagen and elastin. In a previous article, we talked about how great these two are for hair. But did you know adding a good amount of peptide in your skincare routine can really help to boost the creation of collagen and elastin as well? Collagen creates healthy, youthful skin, but the production of collagen slows down with age. Collagen molecules are too large to be absorbed by skin directly, which is why feeding your skin peptides helps to benefit the skin. Being the building blocks of elastin fibers, peptides boost the production of elastin, which help to create firmer, more resilient skin.
It is August and the days of playing in the sun are almost gone. Although we may have had a blast in the sun, our skin may not have enjoyed the time out there as much as us. Despite the incredible SPF products you probably slabbed your skin with before being in the sun, sun exposure can still have detrimental effects on the skin. Turn that frown upside down though! Peptides have been found to boost the repair of photoaging skin cells.

TL;DR: Collagen and elastin are important factors for beautiful, healthy skin but are too large to be absorbed by the skin when applied topically. Instead, using products containing peptides can help to obtain healthy, gorgeous skin. Peptides are amino acids that make up collagen and elastin fibers. Since they are smaller in size, they are absorbed by the skin to enhance production of collagen and elastin for flawless, healthy skin!
