Hyaluronic acid may be synonymous with healthy looking, hydrated skin, but it's not the only ingredient that's known for its youth-sustaining support. Enter: peptides.
Found in Youth To The People's Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum, peptides - in this case, a triple-peptide blend - are made up of amino acid chains that are linked by peptide bonds. Peptides, which are found in keratin, elastin, and collagen, are a key component of skincare as they work together to keep the skin looking plump, firm, and youthful.
"When certain peptides - known to make up larger specific proteins - are replenished, they assist skin that has lost or is losing density, firmness, and elasticity," says Jacob Tomás del Rosario, Youth To The People's Director of Field Sales + Education, of the powerhouse, clinically proven ingredient. The Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum, he says, "is something you can utilize as a preventative measure if you are looking to maintain the overall healthy appearance and function of the skin."
What makes peptides such a standout?
Peptides are impressive on their own, but Youth To The People took it a step further by incorporating a triple-peptide blend into the Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum. These peptides come together to promote skin that's bouncier, plumper, and more youthful. Think of this triple-peptide blend as the ultimate triple threat when it comes to skincare.
"You will see and feel the immediate plumping effect when peptides are partnered with 4D hyaluronic acid," adds del Rosario, speaking to the Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum, which boasts both skin-loving ingredients. "The Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum imparts a beautiful glow to the skin, and allows your complexion makeup, as in your foundation and concealer, to glide on more smoothly and last longer."
Who would benefit the most from the Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum?
The Triple Peptide + Cactus Oasis Serum can be used on any skin type, making it a versatile addition to anyone's skincare routine. The same can be said about peptides on their own.
"All skin - no matter your skin type - loses density and elasticity at some stage," says del Rosario. "Therefore, peptides, when used as a reparative or preventative measure, will help the skin look more youthful."
Sustaining and supporting youthful skin has never been so easy.
