What is Beautiful Skin?

Beyond the musings of poets, the biological essentials of what comprises beautiful skin are simple. Across cultures, the clear teenage skin is seen as the ideal. Such skin is:

  • Smooth and free of defects
  • Firm and elastic in tone
  • Plump with lingering traces of "baby fat"
  • Imbued with a reddish tint (regardless of skin color) from profuse blood circulation
  • Covered with little or no cosmetics
  • Lightly suntanned (for pale skin)
  • Free of skin breaks and cracks

Clear, blemish-free skin was found to be the number one factor in interpersonal attraction in psychological studies of 170 human cultures.

Practical Tips Copper Peptide Solutions to Use Today

Wrinkle Reducing Regimen!

In the morning after cleansing, apply a light amount of a mild copper peptide. If acne is a problem, stick with oil-free serum solutions.

2. At night, apply a moisturizing facial cream also containing copper peptides over your face three nights weekly and a mild hydroxy acid leave-on three alternate nights weekly.

3. If dry patches are a problem, use a biological healing oil that does not cause breakouts.

In the morning after cleansing, apply a light amount of a mild copper peptide product, and follow with a light coating of the biological oil of your choice.

2. At night, apply a moisturizing facial cream with copper peptides over your face three nights weekly. Alternate with the use of a mild leave-on hydroxy acid cream or serum the other three nights weekly.

3. After two months, you may progress to a stronger hydroxy acid, such as a 30 percent lactic acid (and a strong copper peptide product). Be sure to use stronger products lightly at first.

In the morning after cleansing, apply a light amount of a mild copper peptide product, and follow with a light coating of the biological oil of your choice.

2. At night, apply a moisturizing copper peptide facial cream three nights weekly.

3. Sometimes a mild hydroxy acid serum also helps to reduce rosacea. Apply the product lightly at night when not using the copper peptide topical.

4. Remember to only use a mild and gentle cleansing agent that works well on super-sensitive skin with rosacea.

Steps for More Beautiful, Younger Eyes

STEP 1. Start by cleansing around the eye area to remove make-up. Use a very mild make-up remover, such as a biological healing oil. Rinse with clear water. Apply a mild copper peptide product designed specifically for use around the eye area while the skin is still wet.

STEP 2. Because the skin may be badly damaged, start with a very gentle copper peptide topical, perhaps a product containing GHK-Cu, and then gradually increase the amount you apply over time. If you experience irritation, that means you have applied too much copper peptide through a very damaged skin barrier. In this case, you might try a gentler approach of alternating with a biological oil one night to replenish skin lipids and a SRCP product every second night. As your skin barrier repairs itself, you will grow less sensitive to products. With time, the area around your eyes should tighten and firm, and you can progress to more powerful products.

STEP 3. If you experience excessive dryness, use a little less of the SRCP product and cover it with a light amount of a biological healing oil.

STEP 1. In the morning after cleansing, apply a hydroxy acid into the crease area.

STEP 2. At night, work in an effective copper peptide cream very lightly directly into wrinkle.

STEP 3. REPEAT CONSISTENTLY... You can expect a significant reduction in fine lines after 3 to 4 months of applying this method.

Get Rid of Wrinkles

Biologically such skin has the following characteristics:

  • A strong and well formed blood microcirculation
  • Collagen and elastin fibers in excellent repair
  • Ample water-holding proteoglycans and GAGs
  • Has a rapid turnover of skin cells
  • Heals itself rapidly after injury
  • Rapidly recovers youthful appearance after injuries
  • Has high antioxidant levels and superoxide dismutase activity
  • Has adequate but not excessive natural skin oils

The key to beautiful skin is to maintain the skin's acid mantle and encourage a rapid turnover of skin cells that rebuild damaged collagen and elastin to maintain strength, elasticity, and resiliency.

This rapid turnover maintains ample levels of the water-holding proteoglycans and GAGs.

The biocirculation (sometimes called the microcirculation) of capillaries and small blood vessels must constantly be renewed - damage to the microcirculation, which is common during aging, impairs nutrient flow to the skin - and produces the "graying" of skin associated with aging.

The Key to Youthful Skin

Vigorous skin renewal and skin remodeling are the keys to maintaining a youthful skin.

Children have wonderful skin with a high natural self regeneration and a beautiful color and texture.

When a child's skin is damaged, the wound healing begins rapidly and scars and skin lesions are rapidly removed.

Reducing damage to your skin is not an adequate approach. You can hide from sunlight until you evolve into a mole but it will not keep your skin young and vibrant.

Yes, avoiding UV light will reduce some types of skin damage as you age, but you will still end up with a pasty, grayish, lifeless skin.

Avoiding skin damage from ultraviolet light, allergens, detergents, damaging soaps, irritants, acne scars, airborne pollutants, and chemical sunscreens is but one part of a wider story.
