Peptides, Skin’s Superhero!

“And in my heart, you’ll always stay. Forever young!” Rod Stewart might have had you belting out the lyrics to his hit “Forever Young” because everyone wants to know the secret to perpetual youth. While it’s not possible to stop aging, there’s definitely a way to slow it down!

Many people want to know the one secret to looking young. There isn’t one Holy Grail secret, but there are quite a few! When it comes to skincare, what you’ll want to look for in your anti-aging products are peptides.

In our Jericho skincare products, you’ll find out that many of them include peptides. Before we explain why, let’s have a quick science lesson, shall we? Peptides are simple chains made up of amino acids. When applied to a product, peptides are going to jumpstart the most important thing to youthful skin – collagen production.

What is collagen? Simply put, collagen is a protein that is found in the skin. When someone boasts about their firm, wrinkle-free skin, it has nothing to do with them, per say, and everything to do with the amount of collagen they have!

While you’re young, the amount of collagen you have in your skin is high. As you get older, the amount of collagen starts to diminish, and this is what leads to those unwanted signs of aging: wrinkles, sagging skin, etc. Your very own superhero in this war against your skin is peptides!

Peptides in skincare are absolutely essential to reducing the signs of aging which is why you’ll find them in so many of our anti-aging products. They’ll penetrate the skin and help increase the collagen production. This will, in turn, help your skin regain some of its firmness and smooth out some of those annoying fine lines and wrinkles.

While peptides are a great tool for skincare, they’re not a magician! At 30 years old and beyond, your skin will never have the youthful look of a baby’s face, but the trick is to start sooner than later!
