Skylar Hand Cream: A Deep Dive Into Peptides

Skylar Hand Cream: A Deep Dive Into Peptides

Fall is upon us, which means we have chai lattes, dazzling sunsets and fuzzy socks to look forward to. Unfortunately, fall is also accompanied by a change in weather and humidity. As the winter months draw near, the moisture in the atmosphere changes, which is why we experience “dryer” weather in the later months of the year. Despite these new challenges, we adore this season, and have worked hard to find a way to make things a little easier (hooray!). Introducing our Renewing Hand Cream, a clean, silky smooth moisturizer formulated with hyaluronic acid and an age-defying peptide. Hyaluronic acid locks in and delivers intense hydration while our peptide encourages new protein development.

What are peptides and how do they work in our Hand Cream?  

Peptides are made from amino acids and you can think of them as, essentially, the building blocks of protein. Why are proteins so important? You’ve heard of the magic term collagen, right? The mysterious reason behind plump, youthful-looking skin? Well… collagen is a protein! Peptides, applied topically, have been shown to encourage new protein formation (one of them being collagen). Collagen lies beneath our skin’s surface, and works to fill in lines caused by our skin stretching, which happens little by little, over time. As we get older, our natural production of collagen decreases, which is why our wrinkles become more prominent and noticeable as we age. Although we can’t reverse the process, there are preventative measures we can take to protect our skin. In our formula we use a hexapeptide which stimulates fibroblast proliferation, helping to aid in skin restoration and elastin synthesis. Moisturizing throughout the day and applying products formulated specifically to provide age-defying benefits are the perfect way to start. We recommend reapplying throughout the day and before bedtime. Try our Renewing Hand Cream and tell us what you think at hello@skylar.com
