Peptides: A Must For Skin Over 40

The Powerhouse Ingredient for Targeting Existing Signs of Aging

Peptides: A Must For Skin Over 40

Anti-aging skin care has a preventative connotation.
Using anti-aging skin care in our 20s and early 30s may have helped keep our skin smooth and tight.

However, in our 40s we want to upgrade to more powerful skin care. We want to talk about skin care ingredients that help skin already dealing with signs of aging. 

How Our Skin Changes After 40

In our 30s, skin turnover starts to slow down, and we are left to pay for the days we didn’t wear sunscreen in the form of fine lines and stubborn hyperpigmentation (uneven skin tone, dark spots, acne scars, melasma).

Our 40s are when we see the biggest difference in our face contours as collagen production noticeably drops. And less collagen in our skin means less firmness, volume, and elasticity.

Deep smile lines, forehead lines, and sagging skin are the result of severe loss of collagen and hydration in our skin. These small changes can cause big differences on how our face looks overall and add years to our age.

In our 40s and ideally starting our 30s, we need to start using skin care products that help replenish collagen to tackle this major root cause of premature skin aging.

What Are Peptides in Skin Care

Peptides are the building blocks of amino acids that make up certain proteins like collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are what help keep our skin taught, bouncy, smooth, and radiantly youthful.

Collagen provides firmness while elastin provides elasticity and helps our stay smooth and wrinkle-free no matter how much we smile.

If you’ve ever wondered if smiling causes wrinkles, you want to keep your skin’s elastin levels maximized.With healthy elastin levels in the skin, you’ll be able to smile and make expressions without worrying about forming deep wrinkles or the need for invasive cosmetic procedures.

How To Pick a Peptide Product

With slower collagen production, skin over 40 is craving peptide-enriched skin care that also helps tackle wrinkle-inducing dehydration.

What makes peptides amazing is their ability to work within the deeper layers of the skin to help visibly plump up deep wrinkles and restore elasticity.

Peptides as a skincare ingredient act like messengers, triggering our skin cells to function like healthy young skin cells.Each peptide provides a different function and benefit for our skin, from hydrating to brightening and wrinkle-smoothing.

Here are 3 of the most important factors that you need to consider when picking a peptide-enriched skin care product:

Exfoliating Acids: some peptide-enriched skin care products also contain exfoliating ingredients such as AHAs that are not suitable for daily use. These exfoliating acids are found in many anti-aging skin care products to help address the slowing skin turnover rate. However, if you have sensitive skin, very dry skin, or thin skin texture you may want to avoid products with significant amounts of any exfoliating acid included.

Hydrating Ingredients: peptides are active ingredients that work hard to help strengthen and rejuvenate the skin but they do not provide hydration or moisturization (learn the difference between hydration and moisturization here). Make sure that the product is also enriched with a high concentration of water-based hydrating ingredients such as sericin or oil-based moisturizing ingredients such as shea butter that leave your skin looking dewy naturally.

Skin Absorbability: most skincare products are not processed with nanoliposomal technology to maximize absorbability. Dry skin types in particular have difficulty absorbing skin care products; and using any skin care product with low absorbability may lead to piling (eraser dust like small particles forming when applying multiple layers), not seeing any improvements, and even clogged pores.

When creating the simple yet potent Forte Serum and Forte Cream for mature, sensitive skin, we avoided exfoliating acids, used an ultra-hydrating amino acid-rich base of sericin (silk protein) and better-than-vitamin-C brightening arbutin (bearberry extract).

Not all peptides are created equally; we use medical-grade peptides with the perfect balance of complementary natural extracts and hydrating ingredients for a holistic and fast-acting formula.

Plus, to ensure effectiveness, our products are processed with medical-grade nanoliposomal delivery technology to maximize absorbability to the deeper skin layers.

Start nourishing your skin with what it needs to look its best.Cell Forte Skin Care isn’t anti-aging skin care; the Forte Serum and Forte Cream are made for skin that is already dealing with signs of aging.

Recent Reviews

"I've never had so much success with a serum! My skin scars easily and my skincare regimen has always included things that should have helped to lighten dark spots like vitamin C but I wasn't seeing results. I have dark spots from cystic acne that I've been consistently trying to get clear for about half a year. After 2 weeks my scars look much lighter and my fine lines look smoother."

"Love the cell forte serum and cream. I have to admit that I was originally skeptical about serum however the cell forte serum is amazing. The cream leaves me with a natural glow and dewy texture which I absolutely love. I have seen a noticeable difference in the firmness of my skin immediately after using it for 2 weeks. After washing my face, I use the serum followed by the cell forte cream and that's it."

"I like the natural herbal smell and the serum feels so refreshing. The cream did not cause any breakouts and with the serum it actually helped my acne calm down. I struggle with oily skin with fine lines, and after maybe a week I noticed my skin looked and felt noticeably smoother. After using it for 2 weeks my skin looks much healthier and brighter. I will definitely be keeping this in my skincare regimen!"
