Ingredient Breakdown: Peptides
Ingredient Breakdown: Peptides
Collagen is a protein made up of amino acids, imparting bounce and firmness. But collagen can be broken down by free radicals (hello, oxidizing fragrance/volatile essential oil compounds), smoking, UV rays, and age. Age contributes to collagen loss also because your body makes less collagen peptides after some time in your 20s. Topical collagen-containing products don’t work, as collagen molecules are too big to pass through the epidermis. Instead, use peptides to help it act younger and make more collagen! Peptides (also made up of amino acids) are small enough to get to the dermis where collagen is made. In response, skin should start making more peptides to form more collagen. Copper peptides are considered particularly beneficial, though the main benefit over normal peptides is their wound healing capability, making them wonderful for those with acne, on top of their anti-aging benefit. DRUNK ELEPHANT - Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer contains 9 varieties of peptides, including copper peptides, as well as a variety of amino acids, fatty acids, and humectants. I love this gel-cream, it’s wonderful as a multifaceted moisturizer that is light enough for oily skin and helps fight signs of aging. PAULA'S CHOICE - Peptide Booster contains 8 peptides, amino acids, fatty acids, and a variety of humectants. No copper peptides, instead incorporating a variety of antioxidants, helping to contribute to the calmness of skin and prevent free radical-induced breakdown of collagen. An amazing anti-aging serum with a texture that sits between creamy and silky, sinking in quickly and giving my skin quite a bit of plumpness. This would be the best of the bunch for a multifaceted anti-aging peptide product. The Ordinary - "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% contains seven peptides -one of which is a copper peptide- plus a variety of amino acids and hyaluronic acid. It’s a simple yet effective serum that is a bit tacky and smells of metal, but the results are worth it. Applying it to a scab/large acne lesion nightly speeds along its healing noticeably- plus I see less hyperpigmentation develop afterwards. I can’t recommend this enough as a budget-friendly entry into peptide serums!

The Ordinary - Ascorbic Acid 8% + Alpha Arbutin 2% My absolute favourite vitamin c serum, with a boost of alpha arbutin. Amazing at lightening PIH and uneven tone. It does have a slightly unpleasant slick texture that is 100% worth the quick results and gentleness. It’ll be hard for me to pay to try another vitamin c serum considering the affordable price and wonderful results I’ve experienced. The Ordinary - Retinol 1% in Squalane I used the various levels of TO’s Retinol in Squalane to slowly adjust my skin to retinol. Love them! They soaked in well during autumn and winter, with zero irritation and minimal purging. I did find they absorb better applied alone. Didn’t help my acne much but I did see scar texture improvement! It’s so silky and softening, I can’t imagine another retinol being better for those with dry skin. The Ordinary - Resveratrol 3% + Ferulic Acid 3% I honestly don’t notice a difference when I use this serum. It’s for long-term skin health so I didn’t expect much in the couple months of use, but it feels slick on skin for an unfortunate length of time so I dreaded applying it. I prefer my Paula’s Choice antioxidant serums. The Ordinary - 100% Organic Virgin Sea-Buckthorn Fruit Oil This stains tf out of shirts and pillows. Your face will be rusty orange for a couple hours. It smells kind of weird. But it is the most calming, nourishing oil I’ve ever used- moreso than rosehip, marula, jojoba, squalane, even from luxury brands. I’m going to order a refill for my tretinoin journey! It heals extracted blemishes beautifully and leaves skin silky by morning. I can’t recommend this enough for anyone with dry skin and those that pick at their face/acne. The Ordinary - Alpha Arbutin 2% + HA If your skin dislikes vitamin c (or you already have a vitamin c serum) but you want to fade hyperpigmentation and uneven tone? This stuff has been a favourite in my routine for years until I switched to the (first) mentioned sister product. It applies light, soaks in quickly, caused no irritation, and I saw rapid results compared to vitamin c. Not as quick as Azelaic Acid, but close! Love it. The Ordinary - "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% Not pictured but I love it so immensely. It takes a million years to absorb (expect tacky skin until it does) but the soothing, healing aspect has me dreading when my bottle runs out. For a seriously packed peptide serum, it’s pretty affordable- $28.90 for 30 mL. The inability to mix it with acids is annoying but my blemishes are always so much less red and disappear very quickly when I use this serum. It does have a somewhat metallic scent but I happily deal with it and recommend its sister product (The Ordinary - ''Buffet'' ) as an intro the peptides and this for anyone looking to try out copper peptides for their improved healing properties!

I have oily skin, and my skn is quite skin. Hydration and elementary anti-aging are my biggest requirement for choosing skincare products. After careful search, I come up with this unique combination. 🙊🙊🙊I hope this can be helpful to you as well! After using this combination for one night, I can see that my skin is less oily than it used to be. 1. The Ordinary - "Buffet" + Copper Peptides 1% This formula includes a 1% concentration of pure Copper Peptides. It can effectively support a wide range of skin health functions like maintaining normal immune function, collagen synthesis, fibroblast production and anti-inflammatory responses. If you like retinol products better, you can use a retinol serum to replace this serum in the combination.  2. CeraVe - Daily Moisturizing Lotion For Normal To Dry Skin Affordable moisturizing lotion! It formulates three essential ceramides and hyaluronic acid. It moisturizes and helps restore the skin’s protective barrier. It can also improve the skin's ability to lock in hydration, changing the skin's capability in the long-run. 3. Kiehl's - Ultra Facial Cream It is formulated with Glacial Glycoprotein and olive-derived Squalane. Squalane is known for its exceptional affinity to skin. It is a highly-refined moisturizing oil. So it can cause oily skin to get whiteheads and pimples. But when we use it with ceramide, this problem can be eased. I have used this combination for a few months. My skin has been stable and hydrated during this entire time. They are DEF high-quality products at affordable prices. I really recommend you to give it a try! You won't regret! If you have any other combination that you find awesome, let me know🌞🌞🌞

Another can swap some products, but serum should never be forgotten. I really like all different kinds of serum with all sorts of uses on the face; they are just so adorable when changing our skin silently. Best Hydrating Serum--NeoStrata Bionic Face Serum Unlike traditional hydrating serums, this serum has a simple formula with no hyaluronic acid but Lactobiomic acid and Vitamin A, C & E to provide antioxidant protection. It is a transparent gel-like serum and is really thick, but not hard to smooth. I towel dry my face after cleansing and apply this on when my face is not completely dry since it is really thick. Although it has a strange light herbal smell and feels like glue, just after a minute it forms a smooth layer on face and makes everything easier to apply. My face becomes more hydrating and supple with it in just a few days. Best Antioxidant Serum--Cosmedix Affirm Antioxidant Firming Serum This antioxidant serum is a must-have, daily serum enriched with vitamin E, age-defying proteins and resveratrol to provide potent and powerful antioxidant protection. It has a light sesame smell, watery texture, and milk-like color; one pump is just enough. I like to use it in the day to fight free radicals and pollutants though it is suitable for both day and night. After using for about a month, my face looks much brighter and acne scars fade more quickly as well. Best Repairing Serum--The Ordinary“Buffet” +Copper Peptides 1% This copper peptide serum is one of the best sellers of The Ordinary. Its blue color is from copper, and it is a powerhouse serum infused with a bunch of amino acids, peptides, hyaluronic acid and patent ingredients not just to enhance skin hydration and health but also to fight wrinkle and line problems. It literally has no smell but feels good on the skin with its thick, gel-like texture. I have tried this for a week both day and night, and to be honest, with no current wrinkle worries, I cannot tell whether it helps with that. But I can say that it is really good at calming and repairing when my face is in trouble of redness and scarring from acne. This a really an ingredients factory providing a full range of nutrition.
