Copper Peptides Are Like Nature's Botox?
What?! Copper peptides are like nature's Botox? Let's get right to the good stuff: copper peptides work as antioxidants and are also thought to stimulate collagen and elastin production, which can help soften the appearance of fine lines. They also help for wound healing and can help with acne by normalizing the bacterial concentration on the skin. Copper peptides are known as a “facelift in a bottle” and help skin stay firm, supple over time.

However, be careful! Too many copper peptides can be bad and can cause a rash. So do not go crazy! Also: don't use copper peptides simultaneously with vitamin C because they can cancel out each others' effects. If you use a Vitamin C serum (which you definitely should- check my favorite Vitamin C serums) then you could use the Vitamin C serum for example in the morning and use a product with copper peptides in the evening.

My current skin care routine already contains the Derma e Ultra Lift Firming DMAE Moisturizer, so I am happy it also contains copper peptides (little did I know lol)!

But let's get real: I am not REALLY expecting Botox results with copper peptides. But a little more firmness to the saggy skin would be definitely great!
