Peptides for anti-aging skincare

What can Peptides do for your skin?

Peptides, produced by the body, are short chains of amino acids needed by the skin and linked by special bonds, like building blocks of protein. Studies have also found that certain types may have benefits for your skin, muscles, and maybe your weight. So companies are putting them into skin products and dietary supplements you can buy over the counter.

They make up certain proteins. Collagen is made of three polypeptide chains, so adding peptides can stimulate your skin to make collagen. Collagen can help your skin become firmer and younger-looking. Your body makes collagen naturally but sadly we stop producing it from 30 or so and this loss of production leads to wrinkles and sagging skin.

What Do Peptides Do?

Each peptide has a different role in your body. We need more research into what synthetic peptides can do and how they do it. But some of the benefits specific peptides may offer include:

Anti-aging. Collagen peptides help make collagen and elastin, proteins found in healthy skin. An antimicrobial peptide (AMP) is involved in producing melanin, a skin pigment. Another AMP is involved in skin whitening, so a synthetic version might help with hyperpigmentation or “age spots.”
Improving the skin barrier. Antimicrobial peptides can help your body fight bacteria and promote wound healing.
