ELEMIS Educates... Peptides

24th May 2017

 

Many of you would have heard of peptides in skincare. You may also know that it’s one of the most celebrated anti-aging ingredients. What might be less clear, is exactly how peptides work for your skin.

 

Here at ELEMIS, we only include ingredients that work in sync with what is naturally found in your skin. So, the yeast-derived peptide we have included in our newest night treatment, Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil, is a strain of peptide that’s naturally found in skin already. So, why do we need it? Peptides are the ‘cell whisperers’ who signal your cells to repair multiple skin concerns. Without them, skin cells can be disorganized and sluggish. We’ve outlined exactly how they work and what this means for your skin.

 

Preserving Youth

Eternal youth. The want of many, but without going down the route of surgery, skincare choices can be disappointing. Until now. The peptides in Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil signal cells to make more collagen and repair damaged cell structures so skin keeps its plumpness and wrinkles appear flatter.

 

Increasing Resilience

Not only do peptides build up resilience by teaching skin cells to repair themselves, they also fight free radical damage and sun damage to stop premature aging. So even if you haven’t noticed aging yet, Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil is as much a prevention as it is a cure. Super lightweight and non-greasy, it’s an excellent introduction into the brand if you haven’t tried it before.

 

Fading Dark Spots

Peptides are the voice of calm to relax over reactive melanin (pigment) production. While pigmentation can’t be reversed (sorry!), peptides can dramatically slow down the rate at which pigment is produced. Pair this with daily broad spectrum SPF and you will be arming your skin with everything it needs to fight sun damage.

 

Aiding Recovery

As you sleep, skin goes into ‘repair mode’. This is where it restores the damage skin has experienced during the day from sun damage, stress, pollution and more. Peptides turbo charge this natural process so you wake up with brighter, healthier skin as a result.
