Peptides are very popular in skincare world. Earlier, we described what peptides do for the skin, but in this article we would like to zoom in on the effect of peptides in eye creams specifically. Did you already know that the Clay And Glow Cooling Eye Cream contains peptides?
IN SHORT: WHAT ARE PEPTIDES?
Peptide is an active ingredient that mainly targets skin fibers such as collagen and elastin. This ingredient already occurs naturally in the skin, but is also often used as ingredient in various skincare products. Peptides increase the collagen production, which results in a firmer and younger looking skin in most cases.
Now that you’re aware of how peptides work, we can explain the benefits of this ingredient in eye creams:
1 | REDUCES PUFFINESS
A high concentration of peptides can reduce puffiness. However, this only concerns eye bags that are caused by moisture accumulation. In combination with a metal applicator as the Cooling Eye Cream has, the eye will look less swollen and therefore provides a well-rested look. Do you want an extra cooling effect? Then keep the eye cream in the fridge.
2 | REDUCES WRINKLES
Because peptides increase the collagen production, the skin will become firmer and fuller. This fills in wrinkles as well as fine lines and will therefore be less visible. Fun fact: crow’s feet will also be visibly reduced!
3 | REFRESHING FOR THE SKIN
And last but not least, peptides help the skin get rid of old skin cells, making cell renewal a lot faster. This also results in a fresh and younger looking skin!
In short, this ingredient actually gives lots of benefits to the effects of an eye cream.
