There are so many anti-aging treatments out there these days with complicated-sounding ingredient lists, it’s hard for the lay person to make sense of it all. Matrixyl is one of those wrinkle-fighting buzz words, but what exactly is it and what does it do? Matrixyl is a peptide, palmitoyl-pentapeptide 3 to be exact. It’s different than many of the other peptides used in skin care, because its results are long-lasting, not just for a mere hour after application. Its job is to specifically target and stimulate collagen synthesis and to repair damage. This function reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin firmer, smoother and more youthful looking.
Matrixyl is found in a variety of anti-aging skin care treatments, and can be combined with other ingredients to maximize results. Since our skin ages from head to toe, you’ll see this powerful ingredient appear on the labels of everything from body lotions to eye creams, facial serums and treatments for the colletage. One highly recommended product for under-eye aging that includes matrixyl is NIA24 Eye Repair Complex. It blends the powerful peptide with proniacin, vitamin C and licorice to brighten and reduce puffiness as it repairs under-eye wrinkles. If you’re looking to boost your current skin care products with anti-aging power, try Dermalogica Extra Firming Booster. It’s a serum that can be used alone or added to any moisturizer to increase skin elasticity. If you want an instant change in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as long-term benefits try Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle Turbo. This product’s Snap-8 formulation gives an instant tightening to the skin which enhances the benefits brought by matrixyl in repairing and preventing further damage.
Now that you know a little more about matrixyl, you can check for this game-changer in ingredient lists and know it will do your wrinkled skin a world of good.
