Little Secret Weapon

In terms of new ingredients in the skincare industry, there are few that get as much hype in recent years as Peptides. Peptides are important for all around skincare as they stimulate the skin to produce more collagen. And that makes peptides a crucial ingredient for eye creams.

But what exactly Peptides? And how can you reap the benefits without breaking the bank? Peptides are short chain amino acids that are readily absorbed into the skin and signal the skin to produce more collagen. When collagen breaks down in the skin, peptides tell fibrolast cells to create more so skin becomes suppler/firmer. But as we age we have less collagen to break down and therefore less stimulation to produce more. That is where topical peptides come into play and can become your skins best friend. Studies show peptides can trick the skin cells into thinking there is collagen breaking down and therefore stimulate new collagen production.

Youthful skin that shows minimal signs collagen break down or aging.

Still youthful with minimal collagen breakdown, But the beginnings of crows feet and aging skin.

Skin that has massive loss of collagen and elasticity, that has developed deep wrinkles and shows extreme aging.

Why is this important for the eye area? Because the skin in and around the eye area is thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face. Under eye skin also lacks sebaceous glands and collagen/elastin fibers making it prone to dryness, creating crows feet and crepe skin. Not only that, but the skin around eyes is under strain of 22 muscles in perpetual motion, 10,000 blinks/day. This is why the eye area is generally the first to show aging. Fine and deep wrinkles and traces of tiredness can thus appear prematurely under eyes. Little Secret Weapon is specifically formulated to help all areas of the face with expressive musculature that can over time cause wrinkles and fine lines. Little Secret Weapon can be applied on around the mouth area, alongside the nose and on the forehead and between eyebrows, where most women begin to see the signs of developing wrinkles.
