A body peel is considered to be quite beneficial to the body due to the amazing health benefits it has to offer. Similar to the face, the body’s skin cells also need to be shed regularly to help new and healthier skin cells to reach the surface. The Orogold range of peels gives the body’s natural turnover process a boost which slows down as we age.
A body peel can work in numerous ways. When a body peel is applied on the skin, the ingredients in it help to get rid of dead skin cells which the rubbing action of your hands allows the product to boost the circulation of blood under the skin by draining the lymph nodes. After the peel has done its job, the post-wash moisturizer that you apply on the skin is able to penetrate better and deep inside while hydrating the skin.
There are certain ingredients in the Orogold range of products that make it beneficial and healthy for the skin. One such ingredient is peptides which are quite similar to protein and take place when there is a reaction between 2 different groups of amino acids. Proteins needs almost 50 amino acids to come together to form a chain but peptides have comparatively shorter chains in it.
Peptides are essential for basic bodily functions to take place and they also help produce collagen in this skin. Collagen plays a vital role in keeping the skin looking plump and youthful. Though peptides are a part of the body’s chemical makeup, they start getting lost as a person ages with time. Peptides enter the deepest of skin cells to repair damaged proteins and rebuild destroyed ones.
2 types of Peptides
Palmitoyl Oligopeptide – This peptide helps to link Hyaluronic Acid and Collagen to the skin so that it remains plump-looking and retains its natural moisture. It has also been proven to be quite helpful in protecting the skin against the sun’s harmful UV rays by imitating the positive effects that compounds such as Retinol have to offer.
Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 – Commonly known as Argireline, this type of peptide is chemically quite similar to Botox which is a surgical method of preventing and correcting wrinkles. This ingredient minimizes muscle contractions and reduces wrinkles especially on the forehead and around the eye region. This ingredient is a favourite choice of Orogold as it needn’t be injected into the skin like Botox is but can be easily applied topically. One will experience a decrease of 30 percent in her wrinkles if the product containing Acetyl Hexapeptide-8 is used regularly for a month.
