Peptides & Antioxidants Firming Daily Treatment, $161, Allies of Skin

As we age, our skin starts showing signs like dullness, dryness, loss of elasticity and sagging. That’s because the body is unable to keep up with the rate at which it loses elastin, hyaluronic acid, ceramides—essentially the building blocks of healthy, youthful skin.

This is where a high-performance moisturiser like the Peptides & Antioxidants Firming Daily Treatment from Allies of Skin comes in handy because it helps delay the signs of skin ageing in several ways. The secret lies in its potent and best-selling formula that actively firms and deeply hydrates. It’s also packed with a high concentration of ingredients that honestly makes it sound more like a mask than a moisturiser.

Packed with antioxidants

There is a blend of nine antioxidants in this moisturiser, including Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (a stable form of vitamin C), Glutathione, Astaxanthin, Thiotaine and Phospholipids, all of which protects the skin against oxidation. Free radicals are unstable and highly reactive forms of atoms that have missing electron charges. In a bid to stabilise themselves, they will often “take” these electrons from cells in the body through a process called oxidation, which in turn affects the cells’ ability to function normally. This can lead to damaged collagen, weakened skin matrix and overall dullness. Antioxidants readily give up their electrons to protect skin, which is why supplying skin with a daily dose of antioxidants through this moisturiser is so important.

The future is bright

In addition to protecting skin, a medley of seven brighteners including niacinamide, helps quell dullness and brighten skin. This moisturiser also has active ingredients like ceramides, the building blocks of healthy skin, to maintain the integrity of skin barrier functions so that it can better protect itself against environmental aggressors. Palmitoyl Tripeptide-5 and Palmitoyl Tripeptide-8 are next-generation peptides that are short-chain amino acids that aid in the production of collagen and elastin and help to improve overall skin texture and soothe irritated skin.

Load up on hydration

The Peptides & Antioxidants Firming Daily Treatment also contains hydrating hyaluronic acid, a star ingredient with low molecular weight so it is able to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin. Manuka Honey UMF17+ is a medical-grade Manuka honey that has antibacterial properties that also help to keep skin hydrated.

With daily application of the Peptides & Antioxidants Firming Daily Treatment, you can expect stronger and healthier skin, with delayed signs of ageing. Skin is visibly resilient, with improved firmness, radiance, and looks less tired.

Allies of Skin is available on their web store, and Sephora.
