Finding the perfect combination of ingredients to treat your skin can transform how you feel about your skin. The right treatment can make persnickety skin woes like inflammation and dryness vanish overnight, or turn dull skin into an oasis of hydration. Holy grail products that work miracles often come in cute packaging, but it’s what’s inside that counts—sort of like your skin. These days, great skin care starts with science, and powerful ingredients like peptides and aloe vera that can improve the look of your skin from the inside out. Here’s a breakdown of how peptides and aloe vera can help transform your skin.
Peptides are tiny proteins made up of amino acids, and are some of the most important building blocks in maintaining healthy skin. They assist in the production of collagen and elastin, two elements that keep skin looking youthful. As part of the aging process, collagen and elastin production slows down. Peptides can help remove damaged collagen and elastin and rebuild healthy collagen and elastin, thereby improving firmness, elasticity, and hydration.
The peptides in skin care products are extracted from plants using biotechnology, and come in a variety of types that play different roles: carrier peptides, signal peptides, enzyme inhibitor peptides, neurotransmitter peptides, and copper peptides. You may recognize some of these terms from your favorite skin care brand’s packaging. Products combine these different types into polypeptides tailor-made to treat various skin concerns, such as anti-aging. Peptides or polypeptides are one of the bioactive constituents present in aloe vera, making it a popular ingredient in many skin care products.
Aloe vera has been a skin care superhero for a long time. It contains antioxidants, enzymes, Vitamins A and C, and it’s known for its soothing, anti-inflammatory properties. It can help treat burns, acne, and dry skin, and helps prevent wrinkles and fine lines due to its ability to hydrate skin. Here are 7 top benefits it can add to your skin care routine:
Though peptides are found on almost every medicine cabinet shelf these days, in most topical skin care formulas, the peptide molecules are too big to penetrate the skin. While these will still have some effect by communicating with skin cells, it’s only through an aesthetic treatment that peptides can reach their true potential, by penetrating deep within the subcutaneous layers of the skin. Our Venus Glow™ Serums do exactly that. On top of that, aloe vera is also a key ingredient of the GLOWSANA Serum along with other antioxidants and powerful plant extracts.
Packed with naturally derived plant and marine extracts, our innovative serums are part of our popular facial renewal treatment, Venus Glow™. Glow treatments use two ultra-fine jet streams to open up and deep-clean pores by removing impurities clouding the skin, at the same time infusing the subcutaneous layers with one of four nutrient-rich serums. The oscillating jet streams are finer than a strand of hair, allowing the serums to effectively reach into the depth of the pore, maximizing absorption of the natural ingredients. Skin feels noticeably healthier, cleaner, and more hydrated, and the peptides continue their work long after the treatment is over, stimulating collagen and elastin for a firmer, more youthful appearance.
