Why You Should Be Using Peptide Face Creams 

Updated on May 16, 2022

We’re all on the hunt for the proverbial fountain of youth. Nowadays, many of us have the perfect skincare routine before we’ve even graduated high school. The significance of taking care of your skin both in the morning and evening is not lost on anyone. While you may have holy grail products that you can trust to keep your skin looking and feeling its best, there may be one item that you need to implement into your regimen if it’s missing. Peptide face creams can make a dramatic difference in your skin’s health and the appearance of your skin. Let’s look at why we all need peptide face creams in our medicine cabinets. 

What Are Peptides? 

Peptides, also known as polypeptides, occur naturally in our skin. However, as we age, we produce less of them. You may already be taking a collagen peptide supplement in pill or powder form as part of your anti-aging or anti-inflammatory care. Collagen is made of three polypeptide chains, and collagen is what keeps your skin looking plump, youthful, and wrinkle-free – it also helps with skin elasticity. Perhaps you’ve noticed that you’re not getting the results you’d hoped for with your collagen supplements alone, and it’s time to add a cream directly to your skin to up your peptide absorption. 

Benefits Of Peptide Cream 

Most people stumble upon peptide creams when they’re looking for the perfect healthy aging skin product, and with good reason. The benefits of peptide creams are well studied and known. Peptide creams are not just limited to helping with fine lines and wrinkles or improving skin elasticity. While peptide cream is fantastic for giving you a youthful appearance, it can also banish acne and pimples. Peptide cream is anti-inflammatory so that it can calm irritated skin and even your skin tone. 

Additionally, peptide creams strengthen your skin barrier. The skin on our face is much more delicate than the skin on the rest of our bodies. If you think about all the environmental toxins, bacteria, and UV rays our faces come into contact with on a daily basis, it’s no wonder we need to take such care of our facial skin. Using a peptide cream every night can strengthen your skin barrier to better protect you from the things mentioned earlier that can cause skin damage, all while restoring the issues that damage may cause. 

Invest In Your Skin 

You may be put off by the price tag of many peptide creams and other products, but you ought not to be. You know the saying “you get what you pay for,” and it’s worth the investment when it comes to your skin’s health. While you can easily spend a small fortune on dozens of over-the-counter products that promise to deliver results, they often fall short of what you were hoping for. Peptide creams work well enough with our body’s chemistry (since we naturally produce peptides) that you know your body will be receptive to the cream. Especially if you’re looking to avoid the hefty price tag of Botox or other injectables, incorporating a peptide facial cream into your skincare routine is an investment that will pay off in spades. 

The Takeaway 

Peptide creams will work for virtually anyone. While peptide allergies can occur, they are incredibly rare. Suppose you’re not keen on trying prescription-strength retinol or other harsher products with AHA’s (alpha-hydroxy acids). In that case, incorporating a peptide cream should be your first line of defense when it comes to your skin’s health and appearance. If you have a teenager dealing with stubborn acne and hyperpigmentation, peptides can be a gentler approach to their younger and hormonal skin. Perhaps you’re older and not ready to get filler or other neurotoxin injections; peptide creams can restore your skin’s firmness and elasticity and tighten up some of your fine lines and wrinkles. 

If you’re not sure where to start when it comes to taking care of your skin, it’s always a bright idea to book an appointment with your dermatologist, and they can help you identify your skin’s issues and build a road map to achieving the skin of your dreams – no doubt peptides will be a part of it. Here’s to your health!
