Neuropeptides: Why They Can Transform Your Skin

Hey Lovelies!

Delving into the world of peptides and neuropeptides: Why they Can Transform Your Skin, NO BS!

Our mission: To keep our skin looking gorgeous for as long as possible, defying age. Or maybe time has marched on and you need something to turn back the clock? Luckily, there are a few key ingredients that are proven to help in our quest – peptides and neuropeptides are components not to ignore. They can literally transform your skin.

The majority of us know about the benefits of hyaluronic acid, retinol and vitamin C. However, peptides and neuropeptides often are forgotten. This is bizarre, given the extensive studies that prove their anti-aging powers. Read on:

We are becoming increasingly aware of what ingredients actually help our skin and over the past few years peptides and neuropeptides have grown in popularity.

What are Peptides?

Basically, they are chains of amino acids that build protein (think of Lego). Proteins are fundamental in forming and maintaining healthy skin, hair, etc.

Amino acids aid in building proteins that achieve specific functions. Some are entirely for optimal skin tone and texture (damn, these must be the amino acids that missed the boat with my body!). Peptides are crucial in keeping your skin looking fabulous.

What Do They Do?

As regards to our skin, peptides strengthen proteins needed to maintain a healthy and youthful complexion. Although they naturally occur, nothing lasts forever, and aging causes their formation to slow down.

What Are Neuropeptides?

Neuropeptides are a little more complex. In skincare terms, they work by communicating with  skin cell and basically managing their function. Furthermore, they can affect the skin’s neurotransmitters, relaxing nerve cells and thus creating a more rejuvenated complexion.

When added to anti-aging products, neuropeptides are showing significant benefits. We are seeing just how successful they are in tackling the pesky signs of aging. Another few years and they will be as well-known as retinol for dealing with the dreaded age-factor.

The Best Neuropeptide And Peptide Products Are As Follows:

1.Perricone MD Neuropeptide Night Cream, $180, www.perriconemd.com

This super-powerful product is literally in a league of its own. The combined neuropeptides work hard whilst you snooze, strengthening your skin’s defence system, blocking the communication pathways that cause the onslaught of wrinkles, and generally rejuvenating your complexion. This amazing night cream also comes with DMAE to effectively aid in tackling skin that is losing its firmness. It may come with a high price tag – but it is SO worth it! #Gorgeous!

2.The Ordinary, Buffet, £12.70 (30ml), www.theordinary.com

Pretty impressive on every level, this multi-peptide serum offers an outstanding variety of actual anti-aging benefits at the cost of a Costa with your friends. I’m not sure how the Ordinary achieve such incredible results at this price but achieve it they do.

Including 11 amino acids, hyaluronic acid and Matrixyl 3000, you can expect some seriously good-looking skin.

3.MD3 Firm3 Neuropeptide Serum With Growth Factor (EGF), £14.99, www.amazon.co.uk

transform your skin with neuropeptide serum md3 firm serum

When looking for the few products that provide neuropeptide properties, you will discover they generally come at a high price. Not so with this little gem. MD3’s formula contains the biomimetic peptide that triggers the youth hormone and EGF (a K-beauty favourite). These work in unison to noticeably improve the skin in every way. You will be amazed at the difference this serum will make.

Double Cleanse Your Way To Beautiful Skin

Hey Lovelies!

2020 is here and so too are some key beauty trends worth taking seriously. K-beauty brands were on the mark when they introduced the double cleansing formula for beautiful skin. Is it worth the hype and time? In short, the answer is a big fat YES, should you want beautiful and radiant skin. Discover what is meant be double cleansing and why you seriously need it in your life!

Why Double-Cleanse?

double cleanse for beautiful skin a gif o jim carrey
Credit: Giphy

Korea got it right with their skincare routine and introduced the rest of the world to the advantages of double cleansing. Everyone jumped on the bandwagon, but their 10-step routine proved too much for us lazy people to keep up with (well, for me anyway). So, as with all good intentions, the double cleanse took a back seat.

However, the benefits of double cleansing can’t be ignored and as we begin 2020, we re-ignite our passion for a flawless complexion. Welcome back, the double cleanse. You see, we live a life of pollution, even when we don’t want to – it’s unavoidable. Come the end of the day, should we not thoroughly rid our skin of nasty bacteria and pollutants, the result will inevitably be bad. Cue prematurely aging skin and all the crap that goes with that. Prevention is better than the cure.

What Is Double-Cleansing?

double cleanse your way to beautiful skin: a gif of cleansing
Credit: Giphy

For those of you who are not in the know, double cleansing is not some ritual to banish evil spirits (not this type anyway). It involves applying balms, micellar water or oil to rid the skin of impurities; then, we follow the step with an extra cleanse. This will be a water-based product that can then be delivered into deeper layers of skin providing optimal results. Furthermore, once this is complete, your much-loved beauty ingredients can then be added, achieving maximum delivery and efficacy.

Read my next article on the best double-cleansing products for that much sought-after complexion. Double cleansing will quickly become as beneficial and necessary as brushing your teeth!

The Best Toners For Every Skin Concern

Hey Lovelies!

You may wonder if we really need toner in our skincare routine. The answer is a firm yes. First and foremost, those with acne prone or oily skin should always reach for the toner. It will significantly aid in removing excess sebum and unclog pores. However, everyone can benefit from the right toner for their skin type. It helps to diminish enlarged pores (a plus for just about everyone); restore pH balance; can prevent ingrown hairs, and some offer a layer of protection too. Here are the best toners for every skin concern.

Some products in this article include affiliate links, meaning I may make commission on purchases made.

1.For The Best Anti-Aging Toner Choose: Obagi Nu-Derm Toner, £39.53 (200ml), www.skinstation.co.uk

best toner for every skin concern
Credit: Skin Station

Obagi is probably the best skincare brand on the market. Offering massive anti-aging benefits that actually deliver impressive results, it’s no wonder this toner continues on its sell-out path. Additionally, the formula includes natural extracts such as aloe, calendula, sage and witch hazel to provide anti-inflammatory, plumping and protective qualities. Some key benefits include:

Targets dark spots.

Non-drying (unlike most toners).

Restores pH balance.

Tighten skin appearance, reducing look of pore size.

Preps the skin for deep delivery of skincare ingredients.

Provides optimal toning capabilities for clear and rejuvenated skin.

This was the first Obagi product I tried, and I have been hooked ever since!

2.For Pore-Trouble Try: Perricone MD Intensive Pore Minimizing Toner, £35, www.perriconemd.co.uk

best toners for every skin concern, perricone md pore minimizing
Credit: Perricone MD

Unless you are one of the very few in the world who are incredibly lucky (probably the same people who win the lottery), then pore size will be somewhere at the top of your skin hate list. The No-Rinse Intensive Pore Minimizing Toner combines DMAE, salicylic acid and a copper complex of which work in unison to gently exfoliate, remove excess sebum and reduce visibility of pores. Furthermore, DMAE has been shown to improve the quality of skin and achieve anti-aging benefits.

This is an incredible toner and one that remains on my firm fave list. Clinical studies show that 75% experienced an improvement in skin texture and pore size! I regularly use this toner and highly recommend anyone else suffering from a similar pore-plight to give it a whirl.

3.For A Vegan Formula That Offers Hydration Choose: Pure Rosewater by Poppy Austin, £15.49 (120ml), www.amazon.co.uk

best toner, pure rosewater

I absolutely love this vegan-friendly toner! The benefits of rosewater are often overlooked – and boy, they shouldn’t be. Including 100% pure unrefined Moroccan rosewater is brimming with antioxidants and works on so many levels.

Such Benefits Include:

A healthy radiant glow.

Calm inflammation.

Restore pH balance.

Unblock and refine pore size.

This is one outstanding and very affordable toner.
