Do you know what the biggest culprit behind signs of skin aging, such as discoloration, sagging, wrinkles, and general lack of vibrancy is? It's not just the passage of time or even the sun. It's free radicals. These tiny enemies are at the root of many of our skin woes and even a major contributor to degenerative diseases. They cause oxidative stress that harms our bodies at the cellular level.
People don't always make the connection between free radicals and antioxidants. But if you break the word down, it's easy to see. Antioxidants help combat oxidative stress by capturing free radicals before they can do harm.
Now, researchers have found that molecules called biomimetic peptides have potent antioxidant properties. And these peptides can work wonders on your skin.
In this study, the researchers tested the biomimetic peptides by exposing them to intracellular free radicals triggered by hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). The peptides responded by preventing the free radicals from accumulating, protecting the mitochondrial membranes in the cells and keeping the cells' powerhouses functioning properly.

This is exciting news because these peptides are even more stable than vitamin C. Vitamin C is an incredible skin care ingredient. If you've read these alerts for very long, you already know about its amazing benefits. But vitamin C has one small weakness - it can degrade quickly when you expose it to light.
While most of us aren’t spending a lot of time sunbathing, we experience enough sources of oxidative stress from incidental sun exposure, pollution, other toxins in our environment, and less-than-ideal dietary choices. But you can still have younger looking skin by using biomimetic peptides to protect your skin cells from damage. You'll find them in both the Système 41 Day Crème
