As we age, the amount of collagen and elastin reduces, our skin can start to sag and wrinkles become more prominent. Wrinkles, a natural part of aging, are most prominent on sun-exposed skin and while genetics mainly determine skin structure and texture, sun exposure is a major cause of wrinkles. Pollutants and smoking also contribute to wrinkling.
A great way to address the breakdown of collagen and to stimulate anti-aging in the skin is by using peptides, which send messages to stimulate collagen production. They mimic the appearance of broken-down collagen, causing skin to react by producing more collagen, as well as elastin. There are many different peptides that do various things for the skin. However, they all work with skin for real results.
