HydoPeptide® is uniquely positioned to address both ageing skin concerns and sensitive skin simultaneously. According to a Personal Care Study conducted by Mintel, sensitive skin is the 5th most common skin concern (after dry skin, ageing skin, sun damaged skin and wrinkles).
What are the symptoms of sensitive skin?
The most common symptoms are dryness and stinging, indicating a compromised barrier function. Generally the skin will be prone to redness, indicating localised skin irritation and an increased perception of heat.
So how does a sensitive skin visibly evolve?
Occasional sensitivity and patchy dryness will appear. The skin will be easily irritated, itchy and sting after contact with seemingly harmless substances followed by an increased sensation of heat, redness and overtime couperose.
How to minimise the symptoms of sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin tends to have a compromised barrier function so the first essential step is to improve hydration and ensure the skin has an adequate protecting moisturising and antioxidant film. It is then essential to soothe any skin irritation and inflammation or redness (work out what sets it off if you can). HydroPeptide® have some amazingly effective technology to do this – Soothing Peptides. To improve skin hydration Diffuporine (Acetyl Hexapeptide-37) increase water transport in the skin to improve hydration. Telangyn (Acetyl Tetrapeptide-33) helps to neutalise the feeling of sensitivity including and the appearance of redness and heat sensation.
Is it possible to address both signs of skin ageing and skin sensitive at the same time?
HydroPetide® has the science to address both sensitive skin and the visible signs of skin ageing simultaneously. To address a key skin ageing concern, loss of skin firmness, they use Dipeptide-5 Diaminobutyroyl Hydroxythreonine + Palmitoyl Dipeptide-6 Diaminohydroxybutyrate. Dark spots appear as we age so vitamin C and peptide works to brighten the skin as well as boost collagen. Finally, Dermapep A350 Myristoyl Tripeptide-31 helps to minimise the appearance of wrinkles, improve luminosity, whilst at the same time soothing the skin.
