Spotlight on: peptides

I’m continuing my series on skincare ingredient information so that you’ll know more the next time you make a purchase. Today, I want to explain why peptides are important.
Peptides are fragments of proteins which create a foundation for our skin.  Without them, skin loses firmness and bounce, wrinkles appear and skin texture changes.  Not only can peptides help bolster how skin looks, they also remind skin how it behaved before the age of 25.

Always read the label

I’ve written previously about establishing a skincare routine, which I am sure you have down pat now!  When you chose the items to use in your routine, it is likely that you selected tried and true brands that you have known and loved for years.  Or maybe something recommended by a mother, sister or friend.
But have you ever had that moment when you feel like your favourite item isn’t working like it used to?  This is generally because your skin adjusts to the ingredients in the product and over time, the moisturiser (or whatever the item in question is) doesn’t have the same effect.  When you go on the hunt for a replacement, it’s worth selecting something with ingredients that will really benefit your skin.
