Peptides are proven with scientific studies to work in our skin and actually make a change, which results in us looking more youthful. This is good to know as the world of skin care can be confusing, with so many products and beauty claims when it comes to turning back the hands of time. Unfortunately, no cream can have an instant dramatic effect on skin to make us look ten years younger, but we can help to keep skin looking as youthful as possible, by using skincare with high performing ingredients. One of these ingredients is peptides and this is why we include some in Nakin’s Anti-Ageing Face Products. Peptides are great as they help to improve the look of skin and reduce the prominence of lines and wrinkles.
Peptides are chains of amino acids which are the building blocks of protein in our skin. Skin has one dominant protein which is collagen. When we are younger, we have lots of collagen, however, it starts to drop off when we get to our thirties and continues to decline throughout our life. As collagen declines our skin becomes less elastic which results in the formation of wrinkles. Peptides can then help to smooth out lines and wrinkles for smoother fresher skin.
Dermatologists generally rate peptides as the next most anti-ageing ingredient after retinol. We all know that retinol has powerful anti-ageing effects for the skin, but it can also have negative effects on the skin such as causing irritation, dryness and sensitivity. Peptides have less of the negative effects and especially if it is a natural peptide. This is why at Nakin we only use natural actives and extracts and two of our products contain a powerful natural oligopeptide, which is Hydrolysed Hibiscus Esculentus. The Nakin Anti-Ageing Products that contain this are our Nakin Eye Cream Complex and Nakin Performance Face Serum. It is such a great ingredient as it is able to improve the look of fine lines, wrinkles and even deep forehead lines, providing an effective way to naturally reverse the signs of skin ageing. Our eye cream and face serum are also filled with lots of other beautiful plant ingredients that have additional anti-ageing benefits for the face and neck, such as hydration, brightness, and antioxidant protection.
