Here at MyChelle, we’re all about using peptides to help promote healthy skin texture and tone – and apparently, so is Better Nutrition! In the magazine’s September 2013 issue is an editorial called “Wrinkle Resistant,” which calls peptides “one of the most promising discoveries in the quest for younger-looking skin.”

According to the article: “A peptide is a chain of amino acids, which are the building blocks of proteins. Peptides carry messages from the brain to the body, telling nerves and muscles to perform different functions. Specific peptides may reduce wrinkles by disrupting the nerve signals sent to tense muscle beneath the skin, relaxing the muscle and smoothing the skin. Some peptides are believed to rev up collagen, which firms the skin. Others may help shrink bags under the eyes by improving lymphatic circulation.”

One peptide in particular, matrixyl, is called out for its ability to “visibly reduce the look of deep lines and wrinkles while also promoting healthy skin tone and texture.” And our very own MyChelle Supreme Polypeptide Cream is recommended to plump wrinkles, lift and smooth the skin.
