Today we are going to discover a new facial treatment to increase the production of your skin’s natural ability to create its OWN peptides. Do you ever wonder why your skin looks so amazing after a facial? And more so, how come you can’t seem to duplicate that effect at home with other products?
I am going to let you in on a little secret most medical estheticians know. But first, let me clarify what a medical esthetician is so not to confuse it with a European esthetician. A medical esthetician is a licensed esthetician with advanced training by a doctor who works only in a medical spa and who does many of the same aggressive lasers and peels a doctor does. Why is this important to know? Because understanding aggressive lasers and peels and what they do the skin means you understand how to correct and rejuvenate chronically damaged skin. The majority of aggressive lasers are designed to break down the skin or create trauma in some way, causing the skin to generate more collagen and growth factors to create a firmer, smoother more youthful appearance. A European esthetician, on the other hand, focuses on a “feel good facial” and does not work in a doctor’s office.
Now back to peptides and how to “trick” your skin into creating their own!
Here is the secret…
First you must do a deep exfoliation, because when the skin is “attacked” by a manual exfoliation such as our Diamond Cell Salt Polish, it is being “thinned out” creating a smoother appearance, yes, but also opening up the pathways for peptides and other anti-aging elements to penetrate deeper.
Peptides like Argireline (Acetyl Hexapeptide)––such as the ones we have in our Liquid Gold Peptides––have been marketed as a safer, less expensive and non-invasive alternative to Botox. Peptides are designed, proven and clinically tested to leave you with healthy glowing, brighter and tighter skin!
Did you know?
Peptides are the protein bonds that hold your skin cells together, protecting your epidermis, keeping it strong, and revealing a firmer healthier glow in your skin!
Your epidermis is primarily collagen. Collagen is protein comprised mainly of important amino acids linking together like a chain. Collagen is depleted daily by internal and external factors, aging, sunlight and environmental toxins. As a result you are left with dull, lifeless, wrinkled and pigmented skin. When this begins to happen, the peptide bonds react sending your skin a “message” to generate…guess what? YEP, more peptides. Applying peptides topically will cause your to skin to react in the same way because the skin “thinks” it’s a collagen breakdown. Now what do you think the skin will do now?
YOU GOT IT––it will create MORE PEPTIDES!
Isn’t the skin amazing how it works!
