Peptides

Meet peptides, some of the most innovative ingredients out there for improving the elasticity, firmness, and smoothness of your skin. Famous for being paired with other nourishing, hydrating and skin-soothing ingredients, a “cocktail” of peptides can bring amazing results to your skin.

We have curated at Skinsider an amazing and diversified range of Korean peptides skincare from top K-beauty brands and indie, rising stars. Enjoy a post-facial-like glow in the comfort of your own home by keeping this powerhouse ingredient in your skin rituals.

If you haven’t heard about the use of peptides in skincare products, we're going to tell you what you’ve been missing.

What are peptides?

On their own, peptides are made up of amino acids. When amino acids are combined in certain formations, they create specific peptides. What happens when peptides are formed and combined together? They make specific proteins.

Peptides are generally considered to be short chains of two or more amino acids. Meanwhile, proteins are long molecules made up of multiple peptides and are also known as polypeptides.

What do peptides do for your skin?

Proteins are the fundamental building blocks of skin. Without peptides, the structure of proteins is weak, and the skin is losing firmness, its texture changes and this results in wrinkles.

When applied to the skin, peptides act as little messengers, triggering skin cells to perform specific functions such as building collagen and improving elasticity. In result, peptides encourage skin to look and act younger.

Do peptides really work? Benefits of Peptides for skincare.

Peptides can be a great addition to your skincare routine because they can address many skin concerns.

Peptides are an essential ingredient in the fight against ageing and should be part of your everyday skincare arsenal.

The best approach is to use products such as moisturizers and serums that use a cocktail of ingredients, including antioxidants and skin-restoring and replenishing substances to visibly improve the appearance of your skin.

When peptides are combined with antioxidants, skin-soothing ingredients, and skin-replenishing ingredients they can address multiple signs of ageing like dullness, loss of firmness to name a few and reduce redness, inflammation. What makes them so powerful is that they can be used for all skin types.

What is the best peptides serum?

If your goal is smoother, softer, more hydrated, firmer and younger-looking skin, you will need to use peptides and other ingredients. Our Korean peptides serum contain a blend of unique peptides, supported by amino acids and skin-replenishing and soothing ingredients.

Some of our favourite skin serums are:

What is the best peptides eye cream?

Eye creams with peptides help keep sensitive skin around the eyes plump. Peptides work hard to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and they can also protect against environmental damage from free radicals. In essence, they work like glue which hold together collagen strands. Collagen fibres facilitate skin cell repair and rejuvenation. Peptides can also help lighten dark spots and improve the appearance of puffy eyes.

Peptides moisturiser

Compared to topical collagen, peptides have a much smaller particle size and can actually be absorbed into your skin. Mature skin can definitely benefit from peptides since, unfortunately, our bodies start to produce less and less collagen as we age. Check:

Can you mix peptides with vitamin C?

Yes, you can use peptides and vitamin C together. Peptides can work in tandem with other popular ingredients and create a lovely synergy. A blend of peptides and vitamin C allows you to enjoy the benefits of peptides and vitamin C whilst avoiding any unwanted side effects and irritation.
