Peptides are strings of amino acids, held together by nitrogen and carbon bonds. In the skin, peptides occur naturally to keep the skin firm. In skin care products, lab-created peptides work from the inside out to address a host of facial issues, especially wrinkles.
Peptides are non-invasive ingredients that have been proven to produce results, so they are great options for incorporating into a skin care regimen. Know, however, that peptides are not quick and magic potions. Their one drawback is that they take time because they build from within the skin, not from peeling the outer surface. The positives of this approach: stronger skin, less or no irritation, and no free-radical stimulation.
