Anti-aging is a huge business these days. Across the globe people are looking for ways to reverse the appearance of aging, which has created an expansive industry for anti-wrinkle products. The problem, as is often the case with mainstream products, is that many of them contain synthetic chemicals and harsh substances. This means that while you might be treating wrinkles, you might at the same time be creating another (possibly larger) problem.
Copper peptide serum, an anti-wrinkle product, operates in this manner: it stimulates collagen production, which will make your face healthier and give it a tight, youthful appearance.
What is a Peptide?
What exactly is a peptide? A peptide is a naturally-occurring mini protein in the body. When collagen in the skin breaks down, the body creates peptides which communicates to the skin that it needs to produce more collagen.
Copper peptide serum, when applied topically, tricks the body into thinking that there’s been a collagen loss. This makes it produce more collagen, restoring your skin to a healthy, youthful appearance. Copper peptides also have healing properties, so you’re addressing wrinkles while also healing the skin.
What to Look for in a Brand
Picking the right serum can be an intimidating task, but if you’re going the natural route then the job becomes much easier. If you search online then you’re going to come across a variety of different brands. Many will claim to be natural, but fail to live up to the claim. For example, they might say ‘includes 10 natural ingredients, making ours the best!’, and yet they fail to identify what those 10 ingredients actually are. Some won’t even tell you how many ingredients are included, much less what they are.
In the search for a natural and effective serum, products that identify their ingredients are given preference. That’s because we can verify that all of the ingredients are natural, and we can look into each ingredient to know exactly what effect it will have on the skin.
The Top Brand
There are many serums out there, but one in particular stands out above the rest. Here’s our review of MyM’s Copper Peptide Serum. This serum is designed to boost collagen production and its high quality ingredients ensure that this goal is met. In addition to wrinkles, this serum can also cure acne scars, sun damage, and stretch marks. Let’s take a look at the three main ingredients in the serum and how they help you.
Copper Peptides. The main ingredient, MyM provides a potent 30% concentration of copper peptides. This is the ingredient that stimulates collagen production, which then repairs the skin.
Apple Stem Cells. These stem cells serve the purpose of reducing wrinkles. The potency is at 15% and this ingredient works really well when combined with the other two major ingredients.
Argirline. This substance will relax the muscles in your face which makes it much harder for wrinkles to form. It’s known as the natural alternative to Botox and it also improves skin hydration. Click here to read our article on Argirline cream.
It’s also important to notice what isn’t in the serum. This is a Paraben free formula. Parabens are often used in cosmetic products because they were long thought to be safe, and in some ways they are— parabens, on their own, won’t hurt you. However, parabens closely resemble estrogen so when you introduce parabens to your skin, you risk increasing the amount of estrogen in your body. This is especially important during and after menopause because the body is producing less progesterone, the chemical that keeps estrogen in check. Too much estrogen in the body can lead to estrogen dominance, which results in an increased risk for cancer.
