Hydropeptide (continued)

March 08, 2015

Ah here we go again your thinking… this one and peptides….. But they are amazing… and if you’ve read and understood my previous post on peptides Here you will like this one a lot more.

For those of you that don’t know what peptides are, that’s okay a lot of people don’t. But after reading this you will always remember the word peptide when it comes to skin care.
Peptides are a short chain of amino acids or Protein fragments, that act as cellular communicators to make the cells in our body work in a stronger, healthier way. In other words peptides are like body building for the skin (think of body builders taking protein shakes)

Why are peptides important in Skincare?

  1. Signal- Peptides signal your cells to make more of what is needed. if the skin is starting to wrinkle, Peptides act as a signal to tell your skin its damaged and make more collagen.

  1. Enzyme Inhibitor-  Peptides which help to brighten the skin and improve dark circles/puffiness

  1. Neurotransmitter-  Peptides help block neurotransmitters inhibiting cell + muscle contraction (botox like)

  1. Carrier - Peptides penetrate down to the lower layers of the skin where other ingredient molecules cannot reach.

Let me introduce to you once again, The Queen of Antiageing and seeing results when it comes to skincare.. Hydropeptide. I first started working with this brand  last September, where I trained and completed a day course in Brisbane. I have been obsessed with their products ever since.

Last week I was lucky enough to go along to the ‘Hydropeptide Master Class’ to meet with the creators of the brand. This was a full day of getting to know the science behind the products and learning more about the many different peptide ingredients. I was overwhelmed. Their product is phenomenal.

Myself & Sue who I work with went along to the masterclass & met with April Zangl and Steve Peck(The owners of the brand from Seattle)

*Increase hydration and nourish the skin
*Fight free radicals and protect the skin

Hydropeptide have a whole range of products. Their main goal is Anti Ageing, but other concerns such as brightening, soothing, and purifying are catered for too. It all depends on your skin type and main concern to find out which products of theirs will suit you. I love doing a ‘Hydropeptide’ facial on my clients, the result in their skin after is huge and they most likely are eager to purchase the products because they are so happy with how their skin looks and feels.

Take a look Here on their website for more information on their products.

Here in Australia, Hydropeptide is getting bigger with a lot of salons and spas stocking it. In Ireland it is only known by a few(that will soon change!) But I promise you, you will LOVE it!

Remember with trying any skin product, it takes 28 days for new skin cells to reach the top of your skin from the bottom. So make sure your using a product for atleast 1-2 months before you decide its working or not. Everyone’s skin is different.

Below are my favourite products of theirs:
1. Exfoliating Cleanser
2. Face Lift Moisturiser
3. Eye Authority
4. Plump and Peel 
5. Purify Mask 

I hope you enjoyed this post on the fabulous peptides and hearing about my favourite skin care brand!

Have a lovely day,
