Boost collagen with peptides!
If you’ve looked into anything to do with anti-aging,you've probably come across the term "peptide". Peptides are the building blocks that make up protein. They act as messengers to increase collagen production. While collagen has been a long-used ingredient in skincare, it was found to be such a large molecule that it had trouble penetrating the skin and didnt actually serve the purpose formulators wanted the to- aka boost collagen- because, well they wernt getting in! SO, we can use peptides! Turns out, applying topically may increase your body’s production of peptides for skin. In response to these signals, your skin may boost its production of collagen peptides. This is an amazing peptide-rich routine. If you want to look young forever- these products are IT. Peptides are the building blocks thats help aging skin repair and appear more youthful, and vitamin c combined with peptides in the two Vichy products boost collagen production!

Probiotic skincare is the future💫
If you've heard that pre/probiotics are good for your gut, it's absolutely true. But it's also true that they are good for your skin. ⭐️ Our skin's surface is an ecosystem of microscopic organisms that are working to protect it and keep it healthy. The microbiome is the topmost layer of the skin that contains good bacteria, which protect it from damage, the same way good bacteria works in our gut. ⭐️ A balanced microbiome is healthy skin, meaning it's able to defend itself from outside aggressions (pollution, sun damage), internal aggressions (hormones, stress) and repair itself correctly. While we cannot see these internal aggressions happen, they affect the growth of healthy skin cells and protective compounds like elastin, ceramides, and more. ⭐️ As skincare fanatics, we can tend to go heavy-handed on the acids and retinols, which when incorporated gradually, are excellent for skin regeneration. But we've all heard of the skin barrier and how it can be damaged with over-exfoliation. Part of our skin barrier includes the microbiome, which is why it is important to keep it healthy and thriving. ⭐️ In addition to my internal supplements, I have incorporated a variety of pre/probiotic products my skincare routine and I absolutely believe it has improved my skin tenfold. One of my most recent purchases is this Energy Skin Tint from BeautyTech Cosmetics. They create beautiful serums filled with pre & probiotics to feed your skin's flora helping it return to health so it can function properly. Beautytech - Skin Energy Tint Beautytech - Skin Energy Tint ⭐️ A little more edu about pre/probiotics from BeautyTech Cosmetics: 💫Pre-biotics: A food source for the bacteria, like a green powerhouse smoothie to recalibrate the skin flora and preserve the diversity and heterogeneity of your unique microbiome. These natural pre-biotics nourish your probiotics to form a robust biome and barrier that keep your skin hydrated and resilient, and less likely to redden, sting, burn and flake. 💫These now fully fed probiotics maximize the benefits of good bacteria by strengthening the skin’s natural defences for optimal hydration, reduced inflammation and redness, improved appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and fewer breakouts. As our probiotics break down on your skin’s surface they create brilliant new ingredients for the skin, such as hyaluronic acid, peptides, and vitamins, as well as increasing the presence of ceramides. 🤍 I think probiotics are completely undervalued in the skincare community. If you're interested some other skincare brands that are gettin down with the good bacteria: Mother Dirt Gallinée Algenist Korres Biossance Saturday Skin Tula ⬇️Have you tried any products with pre/probiotics?
