Peptides are another superstar ingredient commonly found in K-beauty products that help assist in anti-aging efforts. To make a long story short, peptides are fragments of protein chains, with the most commonly known proteins being collagen, keratin, and elastin. These peptides provide plumping effects and make the skin look younger and healthier!
Benefits: Peptides crush the appearance of wrinkles and are a great anti-aging ingredient. When you apply peptides to your skin, they penetrate through the barrier to repair damage and signal your skin to boost collagen and elastin production.
Skin Types: You’re never too young to start using peptides and they’re safe for all as they’re naturally produced by the body.
