11 Peptide-Powered Skincare Products That Will Boost Collagen For Plump And Youthful Skin

Keeping up with beauty jargon is no easy feat. One second we’re talking about AHA’s and BHA’s, and in the next we’re discussing Hyaluronic Acid. But, as quickly as the spotlight shifts, and as overwhelming as the beauty world maybe, certain ingredients just cannot be ignored for their heroic properties. 

You’ve probably heard of peptides in relation to anti-ageing skincare products. But ever wonder what peptides really do, and why they’re imperative for incredibly bouncy and youthful skin? Here’s a simple explanation: our skin is essentially made up of water, fat, and mostly protein. The three most important proteins that support our skin structure are collagen, keratin, and elastin—collagen being the protein that is responsible for keeping skin taut, plump, and bouncy. Peptides are small molecules composed of amino acids, which are really protein fragments or, the building blocks of protein. Different combinations of peptides result in different proteins. Over time, as our skin loses its elasticity because collagen levels begin to deplete, we need skincare powered with peptides to aid in cell turnover which, in turn, helps skin heal, repair, and slow down the ageing process. Unlike protein, peptides are so small on a molecular level that they can be easily absorbed into the skin when applied topically, and immediately begin signalling our body to produce more collagen. If you can really commit to peptide-rich skincare, over time you will notice that fine lines and wrinkles will begin to diminish, and your skin will take on a more plump appearance. 

Now that you’re armed with this information on the benefits of peptides for younger looking skin, here are some holy-grail, peptide-powered skincare products that you can actually add to your skincare routine.
