Skin 2 Skin’s Anti-Aging Peptides and Other Active Ingredients:

Many of the peptides we use are relatively new up-and-coming high performance anti-aging ingredients for the skin. Everyone has a busy schedule and little time off to have intense invasive treatments or toxic injections. Doctors would say, in addition to treatments and injections, you would need to use a highly nutritional, peptide and bio-active skincare products to improve the results and maintain your treatments and injections longer.

Skin 2 Skin’s products improve skin appearance with out invasive treatments and can be part of your daily routine.  The science behind ur products proves it! The peptides we use are extremely effective, with low to no side effects. Compared to other anti-aging ingredients with side effects like irritation, redness, dryness, swelling, and sensitivity, Skin 2 Skin’s use of peptides ensures such side effects are nonexistent. Peptides are short chains of amino acids found in protein fragments, and are communicators acting as catalysts that prevent the accelerated skin aging for healthier, smoother, younger, and luminous skin appearance.

Other types of peptides create different reactions. This includes reducing the appearance of discoloration, expression and lip lings. Hydration is increased while volume is improved, and peptides prevent fine lines and deep wrinkles as well as sagging and sluggish skin.

There are four types of peptides. Skin 2 Skin uses different combinations of peptides, at maximum concentrations depending on what the product was designed to address. Our products are designed to be ultra-effective in keeping and crating healthy,  youthful, and luminous skin.

Four Types of Peptides:

  1. Signal peptides act as skin cell messengers, encouraging skin cells to do things like more collagen, or produce more elastin, improving the skin’s volume, hydration and sagginess, or other proteins your skin needs, therefore limiting the appearance of aging skin.
  2. Carrier peptides enhance the delivery of trace elements, like copper and magnesium, to the skin. The trace elements boost collagen, improves elasticity and help skin renew faster.
  3. Neurotransmitter peptides they help inhibit muscle contraction. If your muscles are calmer, wrinkles are less apparent and harder to form. They are best used to help reduce the appearance of expression lines, crow’s-feet, forehead, between brows, and lip lines. They do not work on wrinkles caused by sun exposure, pollution, smocking, etc.
  4. Enzyme peptides inhibit the process of collagen break down so the skin does not age as quickly and skin discoloration. By blocking a group of enzymes that degrades collagen and causes skin discoloration including dark spots.

Peptides Need Support:

As special as peptides are, they need the right supporting ingredients to help address all the needs of the skin. Any skincare formula must include the specialized ingredients we talk about, such as antioxidants, skin-replenishing nutrients that include vitamins, proteins, minerals, skin-soothing ingredients, hydra-tors and moisturizers, and skin-restoring-ingredients (witch includes peptides other plant active ingredients). Peptides can do a lot on their own, but they can’t do it all alone they need the support of other natural ingredients to create the complex formulations that work long term.
