It is inevitable for us to notice loose, sagging skin as we age, not fun! As we age, elastin and collagen begin to deteriorate. These two components, collagen and elastin, are responsible for tight, youthful skin. It is elasticity that holds our skin tightly to our face and body, and the strength of this elasticity depends on both collagen and elastin. So, why do we lose collagen and elastin as we age?
- Free Radicals
- Over-exposure to UV rays
- Pesticides /Pollutants
Loss of Antioxidant
Vitamin C is one of the vitamins the body depends on when it forms collagen fibers. Without this vitamin, the process is interrupted. In addition, copper enzymes are used in a combination of zinc, copper and amino acid.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, acts as an antioxidant when applied to the skin. According to MayoClinic.com, products containing at least 10 percent vitamin C in the L-ascorbic acid form, with a pH of 2.5 or lower, improve the quality of collagen.
Benefits of Vitamin C L-ascorbic acid:
- Neutralizes Free Radicals
- Repairs DNA damage
- Reduces pigmentation
Copper peptides are needed to make new collagen and elastin that support the dermis layer of the skin. According to a study reported In the October 2003 issue of "Journal of Drugs in Dermatology," copper peptides firm the skin through enzyme action and help to protect skin from free-radical damage. Thus, can slow the effects of aging on the skin. Copper peptides are tiny enough to easily penetrate skin, added plus for results emerging from the dermis!
Copper peptides stimulate the creation of glycosaminoglycans, which retain moisture in the skin’s inner cells. This is one of the reasons I am in love with DBH Beta 10 Treatment. It helps to ensure that your skin is plump, hydrated and packed with copper peptides and 20% Vitamin C!
Benefits of Copper Peptides:
- Increase wound healing
- improve the appearance of aging skin
- Regenerate tissue in cases where skin had been scarred, burned or damaged,
- Breakdown scar tissue
- Stimulate elastin, glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans.
Copper peptides work with vitamin C to promote the growth of elastin and collagen, which give skin a renewed and more youthful appearance. Here are my go to anti-aging treatments with copper peptides: DBH Level I, BETA 10 MASQUE and Level II CHERRY ALPHA MASQUE, in combination with the daily use of C-Lester Vitamin C20 Serum !
