Often dubbed the ‘future of skincare’, Peptides are smaller chains of amino acids with miraculous age-reversing benefits. But that’s not all! The topical application of this celebrated active also alleviates inflamed skin and reduces breakouts, amongst other things. Intrigued? We got you! 

This blog walks you through the basics of Peptides and its sundry benefits. If you wish to give the somewhat novel skincare ingredient a shot, we help you with a beginner-friendly list of skincare. From our beloved Retinol Anti-Aging Serum to the Rapid Spot Reduction Drops, all of Foxtale’s best-selling Peptides-infused products.

 What Are Peptides?

In simple terms, Peptides are smaller chains of amino acids that create specific proteins. There is an assortment of Peptides available – based on the number of amino acids linked together.

 What Are The Benefits Of Peptides? 

Most Peptides boast small-sized molecules, helping them seep through the skin’s lipid barrier with ease. For the most part, peptides serve as catalysts for the production of proteins like Collagen and Elastin – essential for your skin’s integrity and structure. More on that ahead.

1. Peptides Soften Fine Lines And Wrinkles: Peptides' topical application stimulates Collagen production in your skin. For the unknown, Collagen is indispensable for your skin’s health. It ensures continued hydration to the skin, preventing the formation of age lines and wrinkles. However, the naturally present Collagen in your body begins to deplete as you age. Enter Peptides!

2. Peptides Keep Your Skin Youthful And Elastic: Adding Peptides to your skincare also creates more Elastin. Another form of protein, Elastin is responsible for the youthful, taut appearance of your skin.

3. Peptides Strengthen The Skin Barrier: Peptides help strengthen or repair the barrier. For all our beginners – the skin barrier is your body’s first line of defence against aggressors, harmful UV radiation, and pollutants. The barrier also helps hold ample moisture into the skin for its soft, supple appearance.

4. Peptides Alleviate Inflamed Skin: Several Peptides possess anti-inflammatory properties and work wonders on reddened, rashed-up skin. It is particularly beneficial for folks with sensitive skin who are more prone to such episodes.

5. Peptides Reduce Acne: Many Antimicrobial Peptides in the market help curb breakouts. They also cue the healthy generation of skin cells, waning the appearance of spots and scars.
