Many wrinkle creams contain peptides, but what exactly are they and how do they reduce wrinkles? Skin care science can now reverse signs of aging in your skin and help get rid of wrinkles. But how does that work and make your skin look younger?
Sunlight and other environmental factors destroy collagen in delicate facial skin making it thinner and more wrinkled. As we age, collagen is not replaced as quickly as in young skin. Peptides are part of the process that signal the skin that it is time to replace collagen. When certain ones such as Matrixyl are applied directly to the surface of the skin, they promote the production of collagen, thus restoring a smoother, firmer, younger look to damaged skin.
Because they promote collagen replenishment, they are an effective ingredient in popular anti-aging skin creams. Less painful and expensive than Botox®, wrinkle creams can restore elasticity and reduce aging in skin, resulting in a fresh, youthful appearance.
In a few short months, daily use of a good skin cream for wrinkle repair can reduce the roughness of your skin, reduce wrinkles and wrinkle depth, and dramatically improve the appearance and feel of your skin.
