Fighting Aging like A Pirate
Have you heard about the modern pirate’s secret to anti-aging? Eye patches are on the rise in popularity for anti-aging. While these eye patches don’t exactly cover the eye that you lost in a sword fight, they instead cover the area under your eyes. Fun fact: the area around your eyes is referred to as peri-orbital. The peri-orbital area is where dark circles, fine lines and crow’s feet begin to appear. The eye patches reduce the appearance of these little tricksters. The secret to these eye patches is that they contain Hyaluronic Acid or Peptides.
Hyaluronic Acid is a major component in skin. It hydrates and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Skin, when exposed to excess amounts of UVB rays begins to fail to produce its own Hyaluronic Acid. Sun damage can be prevented with a moisturizing sunscreen. Most of us have sun damage due to excess sun exposure in our every day lives. So when this production failure occurs from living life, the skin begins to fail to produce it's own Hyaluronic Acid.
Peptides are awesome in skin repair because they can trigger our skin to begin to produce Collagen. Collagen is what gives our skin its elasticity as well as its fullness. When collagen production begins to fail, due to age and hormones, our skin starts to loose its shape, causing wrinkles. Peptides form amino chains, these chains become proteins. When applied topically the peptides send signals to the lower layers of skin to begin producing collagen.
