Did you get a lot of sun exposure over the Christmas and New Year break? It’s time to kick start a year of healthy beautiful skin and we need to start by protecting and repairing against sun damage. aliangé skincare minimises DNA damage caused by UV exposure by using the latest in peptide technology to stimulate the skins own natural DNA repair pathways.
What are peptides?
Peptides are strings of amino acids, which are the building blocks that make up proteins in our body, including collagen in the skin. Without peptides, skin doesn’t remain intact and the result is loss of firmness, appearance of wrinkles, texture changes and skin that doesn’t bounce back as it once did. Peptides also teach skin to do what's required to help revitalise these building blocks, which can help revive ageing skin.
Peptides are found in every human cell and play an important role in how the body functions, often acting as a biologic messenger. We need peptides at all times. If we are deficient in them, our body cannot function. Peptides have a myriad of uses in the body, from being the building blocks for enzymes, hormones and an energy source.
Why are peptides important for the skin?
As we age, the skin’s collagen production begins to slow down. When you apply skincare containing peptides to your skin, your body sees these peptides as ‘signals’ that you need to heal, which tells your body to produce more collagen where you need it most. If your skin is ageing prematurely, those peptides might signal your skin to boost its production of collagen and even hyaluronic acid, plumping up your skin and restoring a healthy skin barrier.
When you apply topical peptides onto the skin in the form of a moisturiser or serum, it tricks the skin into thinking there’s been an injury or wound and it stimulates our collagen-boosting processes. Unlike many other collagen-boosting ingredients, peptides are generally well tolerated by all skin types with no irritation.
What visible benefits will I see?
What you can expect from consistent use of peptides for skin is steady firming and smoothing of your skin as it becomes tauter and more elastic. You’ll see improvements in the overall appearance of crow’s feet, radiance, and firmness, as well as improvements in fine lines, skin texture, and clarity.
