Let’s just say that the two go hand in hand.
When our skin appears young, firm, taut and smooth this is Collagen at its best. Collagen is a structural protein found in the connective tissues of the body. It makes up 75% of the skin, it is crucial for the appearance of youthfulness; this naturally-occurring substance makes the skin strong, plump and smooth.
Peptides are also commonly called amino acids. These peptides make up the proteins in the skin. They become proteins when they form a long chain of amino acids. However, when peptides are in a short chain of amino acids, they have the ability to penetrate the upper layer of the skin and signal the cells telling them how to function.
Peptides signal your skin to make more collagen. Once we age our collagen is destroyed and not replaced. As a result young, smooth skin becomes thin and wrinkled after a while.
One way to improve wrinkles allowing you to look younger is to replace lost collagen. When collagen breaks down, it forms specific peptides. These peptides act as an indication to inform the skin that it has been damaged and to make new collagen.
Applying peptides instantly to the skin can actually be a way of tricking the skin into replacing lost collagen to make more.
