Every woman has used beauty products at least once that contain collagen, elastin or keratin.
Proteins have been used in the beauty industry for a long time. They undoubtedly have positive effects, but work only on the skin surface. Their molecule is too big and cannot get through the skin stratum corneum, which is why the effect is only visual.
So what are peptides?
Peptides are natural or synthesized substances, the molecules of which are comprised of the residues of two or more amino acids, connected by peptides (amidines). In living cells, peptides are either synthesized from amino acids or result from protein breakdown. In essence, peptides are short protein chains. They differ from proteins in size and contain fewer than 50 monomer units. For decades, studying the properties of peptides has been an ever-growing research area.
Peptides play an important role in major physiological and biochemical functions and regulate all the processes going on in the human body. They order the body cells to “remember” their youth and launch general rejuvenation processes. Eventually, the body starts producing the optimal amount of necessary proteins again, and the functions of organs and tissues are restored, like at a younger age.
Functions of peptides.
Lately, beauty products containing peptides have become more and more popular and they are among the most powerful modern rejuvenation products.
Thanks to their impressive effectiveness and profound research results, peptides are used in the most expensive skin care products. Rejuvenation creams containing peptides should be used twice a day. The effect will become visible within four-six weeks.
- Boost collagen formation
- Improve skin elasticity
- Have soothing effects and stimulate regeneration processes
- Facilitate the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans;
- Facilitate reactivation of the blood circulation;
- Activate superoxide scavenger (SOD);
- Activate the natural antioxidant protection mechanisms;
Control melanogenesis (melanin synthesis).
In anti-ageing beauty products, various types of peptides are used. The most famous and interesting synthetic peptides used nowadays in cosmetics are Botox-like peptides (for example acetyl hexapeptide -3) and peptides used for restoring the dermal matrix. Botox-like peptides are capable of slowing down the release of neurotransmitters, impeding impulse transmission from neurofibers to facial muscles (but not blocking it, the way Botox does). Peptides used to restore the dermal matrix boost the reproduction of the necessary proteins and some other substances, which help maintain the optimum condition of the skin.
DSM MON PLATIN has developed a unique rejuvenation line based on black caviar properties Black Caviar Collection.
Eye & Neck Cream Enriched with Black Caviar and Ultra Intensive Facial Mask contain the latter type of peptides, more specifically, one of the most effective anti-ageing components used in professional beauty products of the latest generation.
Suggestions and use of the products.
- Use the eye cream after cleansing twice a day.
- You can also use the cream on the smile and frown lines.
- Apply the cream on problem areas and tap it in with the tips of your fingers.
- Use the ultra-intensive mask twice a week.
- Like any other mask, it will work better, if used after exfoliation. Peeling Mask with Black Caviar will yield fantastic results, when combined with this mask.
Apply the mask and leave to work for 20 minutes. Remove the remains of the mask with a cotton pad wetted with black caviar based toner.
Remember that youth does not last forever but you can prolong it by choosing the right beauty products! Remain young and beautiful!
