Peptides in Skincare: What Are They and How Do They Work?

You deserve skin that glows with health, is hydrated, appears youthful at every life stage, and makes you feel confident.

Here at Aesthetics Rx®, skin is our passion. We love caring for the skin, talking about the skin, seeking out evidence-based skincare ingredients and helping you get to know your skin better.

But with so many skincare ingredients emerging daily, we know how overwhelming it can be to decipher so much information without losing hope that your skincare will deliver on its promise.

Peptides for the skin are one group of revolutionary skincare ingredients that often appear perplexing but deserve a spotlight from above.

In this article, we'll explore the growing popularity of peptides as a key skincare ingredient, the science behind them, why we love them, and why we think you should, too.

Understanding Peptides

Peptides are short chains of amino acids or mini proteins that play a vital role in the proper function of every cell in your body, including your skin cells.

Think of them as building blocks that make up proteins within the body, signalling cellular activities to maintain overall health and well-being by contributing to various bodily functions.

In our skin, peptides significantly support and regulate specific proteins like collagen, elastin, and keratin, which keep our skin firm, flexible, resilient, and hydrated, leading to radiant skin with a youthful appearance.

By incorporating peptides into your skincare regimen, you can experience remarkable and positive effects on your skin, including enhanced collagen production, diminished wrinkles, improved skin elasticity, control of uneven skin tone caused by hyperpigmentation, protection against harmful free radicals, and optimal hydration.

Choosing the Right Peptide Skincare Products

At Aesthetics Rx®, we've created formulas to ensure peptide absorption, cellular communication, and bioavailability to harness the full potential of peptides, offering solutions to your skincare concerns.

Experience the power of advanced peptide technology to support your skin's natural processes to unlock a more youthful and radiant you.

Hexapeptide (Juveleven™): An advanced peptide that enhances the skin's natural DNA repair pathways, elevates cellular longevity and invigorates skin vitality.

Hexapeptide serves as a powerful environmental shield that protects the skin from DNA damage caused by UV light and environmental pollutants, providing a potent defence against premature ageing and the harmful effects of external stressors.

The innovative biomimetic properties of Hexapeptide mimic the skin's natural processes, promoting efficient DNA repair and renewal and assisting in maintaining the skin's youthful resilience and supporting its overall health and radiance.

At Aesthetics Rx®, we've combined the transformative effects of this cutting-edge peptide with the potency of the vitamin A derivative Retinal in our best-selling Total Repair DNA Serum.

We're activating hyaluronic acid, your skin's natural moisturiser, to keep the skin plump and hydrated.

Copper Peptides: A powerful blend of naturally occurring amino acids that help the skin produce new collagen and elastin and stimulates hyaluronic acid within the skin for natural hydration.

Renowned as one of the most significant peptide trends in skincare, Copper Peptides are absorbed deeply, playing a crucial role in maintaining hydration for optimal skin health.

Combining the potent antioxidant properties of Copper Peptides and Coffee Cherry Extract, our Advanced Age Defence 4D Sheet Masks protect the skin from harmful free radicals and environmental stressors, promoting a radiant and youthful complexion while targeting fine lines and wrinkles and enhanced hydration to encourage skin elasticity, contributing to skin firmness.

Anti-Ageing Peptides

A unique anti-wrinkle peptide effectively helps to relax and reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles.

Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 (Argireline): A remarkable and potent anti-ageing ingredient renowned for its ability to visibly relax and reduce the appearance of expression lines and wrinkles.

Backed by compelling research, this innovative peptide has demonstrated a remarkable 17% reduction in wrinkle depth after just 15 days of use!

When used daily, this peptide will promote more youthful-looking skin as it works to relax superficial facial muscles responsible for micro-expression lines, leading to a visibly smoother and more refined complexion.

We've combined this clever peptide in an intensive moisturising formulation with plant-based actives in our Anti-Ageing Regeneration Formula to replenish and combat the visible signs of premature skin ageing.

Ultimate Lip Perfection with Tripeptide-1

Thanks to this specialised peptide, your lips will feel smooth, protected, and plump.

Tripeptide-1 is an anti-ageing powerhouse of three amino acids that targets fine lines and wrinkles around the lips.

With its unique ability to stimulate new collagen production, Tripeptide-1 promotes a more youthful and rejuvenated look, reducing the visible signs of ageing around the lip area.

We've combined Tripeptide-1 with the exceptional hydrating properties of Hyaluronic Acid in our Ultimate Lip Perfector to replenish and retain moisture within the lips, leading to a plumper and smoother texture for natural lip volume.

Revitalising the Eyes with Multiple Peptides

Harnessing the power of several powerful peptides to revitalise and refresh the delicate eye area.

Dipeptide-2, comprising two amino acids, is instrumental in flushing fluid within superficial skin tissues and enhancing drainage. This dynamic action aids in reducing under-eye puffiness and promoting a smoother, refreshed eye contour.

Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 is a blend of four amino acids that targets local inflammation. Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7 contributes significantly to a more youthful and refreshed appearance around the eyes by reducing inflammation, soothing irritation, and promoting skin firmness and elasticity.
