Copper peptides are ingredients used for skin rejuvenation and remodeling as they help to firm the skin, reduce wrinkles and promote collagen synthesis. Vitamin C is also a popular ingredient found in many anti-aging cosmetics because of its antioxidant properties which help to protect the skin from environmental damage. Using both copper peptides and Vitamin C can be a great way to protect and rejuvenate the skin; however, it is important to use them correctly as the copper peptides can cause the Vitamin C to become inactive.
Cleanse the skin in the morning by applying your favorite cleanser and rinsing it off with warm water. Use a clean towel to pat the skin dry.
Apply a Vitamin C serum, or moisturizer, to the skin by gently patting it on to the skin. Apply sunscreen to the skin and let it dry for approximately 1 to 2 minutes. Apply make-up as usual (if you wear cosmetics).
Cleanse the skin, before going to sleep, with your favorite cleanser. Rinse the cleanser off with warm water and pat the skin dry with a clean towel.
Apply a copper peptide serum, or moisturizer, by gently patting it onto the skin.
For maximum results, apply the copper peptide 12 hours after the Vitamin C.
For faster results, use a cleanser that contains glycolic acid to help exfoliate any dead skin cells and allow better penetration of the vitamin c and copper peptides.
Copper peptide and Vitamin C products can be purchased at a local salon, department store, or online.
