Plump It Up
Something evil happens to the skin after the age of 35.
It’s like it just gives up.
Throws in the towel, and says, “Girl BYE!”
It’s totally rude!
We all have that one friend who has given up. Rather than eating healthy and hitting the gym, they put on a pair of sweats, grab their takeout, hop on the sofa and crack open a box of wine.
This is pretty much what your skin does after age 35.
The production of many of the “substances” that the skin needs in order to function at optimal levels either slows down or just stops. Without substances such as hyaluronic acid, stem cells, and collagen the skin loses volume and begins to sag. Fine lines and wrinkles also become more visible.
3 Substances Our Skin Loses With Age:
But...Amino Acids + Peptides = Younger Looking Skin.
Ok, this is going to get a little scientific - but pay attention - your crow’s feet will thank you!
One of the best lines of defense against aging is the use of amino acids. These compounds aid in the transportation and storage of nutrients for the body. There are even ways to target specific anti aging goals in skincare using combinations of amino acids called peptides. Sarah Robbins, Master Esthetician with GlyMed states, "Peptides are a chain of AMINO ACIDS! A peptide is created when 2 or more amino acids come together and each strand has a purpose and function. The main type of Peptides are: Signal peptides, Neurotransmitters and Carriers."
