What is Snap 8 Peptide?

Snap 8 is an elongation of the hexapeptide, acetyl hexapeptide-3, otherwise known as Argireline. It’s been nicknamed the “anti-wrinkle peptide”. Argireline is a peptide that prevents the formation of wrinkles around the eyes, brow, nose, and mouth – all of the areas of the face that allow us to make expressions and display emotion. How does it prevent wrinkles and lines? Argireline inhibits muscle movement, and has earned the name “Botox in a jar” as a result – but Botox and Argireline work differently.

Botox boosts collagen and helps repair skin to reduce lines and wrinkles. Argireline and Snap 8 work by mimicking the proteins found in the SNARE complex and destabilizing it to prevent muscle movement. If you can’t frown, you won’t have wrinkles from frowning.

Purposes of Snap 8 Peptide

Like Argireline, Snap 8 is meant to give skin fewer wrinkles. By limiting the ability of the face to squint, grin, or glare, the skin is relaxed and expression lines are reduced. Snap 8 is added to many cosmetics in order to give provide:

  • Anti-aging properties
  • Fewer wrinkles
  • Fewer expression lines
  • Reduced crow’s feet around the eyes

Scientific Studies of Snap 8 Peptide

Kinerase studies of Snap 8 conducted by their researchers will reduce the appearance and depth of wrinkles by more than 34%. It is considered a safer method of reducing wrinkles than Botox by most.

In scientific studies involving animal test subjects, Snap 8 operates as a muscle contraction inhibitor. The muscles provide a more consistent method of achieving homeostasis when they are given Snap 8.

Studies also show that Snap 8 works alongside protein Snap 25, which is a T-Snare protein that can regulate the contraction of muscles. When Snap 25 becomes destabilized, wrinkles and lines formed on animal test subjects.

With Snap 8 used in conjunction with Snap 25, the Snap 25 protein remained stabilized for much longer periods of time which provides a more stabilized method of contracting muscles and hypothetically could remove more wrinkles and offer anti-aging properties.

The Power of Herbal Medicine

Herbs are considered food for the body. Throughout history extracts from herb plants, roots, tree bark, leaves and flowers have proven effective in restoring and maintaining health. FOR EVERY DISEASE WE KNOW, GOD PROVIDES A HERB TO GROW!

Extracts are one of the simplest ways to enjoy the goodness of herbs.

What Are Herbal Tinctures?

Tinctures are concentrated herbal extracts that have alcohol as the solvent. An acetum is sometimes defined as “a vinegar tincture” in the tomes, but this is a pretty rare exception.

WHAT DEFINES A TINCTURE?

  • Tinctures are concentrated herbal extracts.
  • All tinctures are extracts, but not all extracts are tinctures! Alcohol must be the solvent used to extract the herbal properties. If you are using vinegar, glycerine, only water (water used to dilute alcohol is fine), or any menstruum (solvent) other than alcohol, your preparation is an extract, but it is not a tincture. Any spirit may be used, but many herbalists prefer something neutral like vodka so the taste of the herb comes through.
  • They can be made with fresh or dried flowers, leaves, roots, barks, or berries. Examples include: dried stevia leaf, vanilla beans, and dried mushrooms.

Herbalists spend from 30 months to three years studying the pharmacology, therapeutics and physio medicine of Western herbal medicine. Constituents found in plants include alkaloids, tannins, astringent properties, glycosides, anthraquinones, resin, volatile oil, mucilage, saponins, triterpenoids, berberine, asparigin, phytosterol and bitter principles just to name a few.

Herbs are metabolised easily by the body, especially the liver, unlike pharmaceutical drugs which interfere with digestion and liver function, creating toxicity and stress on many organs.

The entire physiology is affected by pharmaceutical drugs. Even one tiny drop can create a systemic reaction. I know this from personal experience!

 

Types of herbal medicine philosophies

  • Traditional Western herbal medicine (WHM)
  • Traditional Chinese herbal medicine (TCM)
  • Traditional Ayurvedic herbal medicine (AHM)

There are many other cultures which have their traditional ways of using herbs but these three philosophies are the best known in our society.

PREVENT SKIN DAMAGE FROM THE INSIDE OUT

UV rays, infrared radiation, pollution, and lifestyle factors generate damaging free radicals that prematurely age skin. Antioxidants provide advanced environmental protection and are clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and promote a naturally even skin tone by neutralizing free radicals.

Skin is the body’s largest organ and one of the most important. In order to achieve optimal skin health, understanding the various skin types and concerns as well as factors that potentially cause the appearance of damage is essential.

The skin is the largest organ of the body with multiple layers, structural proteins, and vital components responsible for its health and appearance. The key to optimal skin improvement is understanding this dynamic organ.

Every skin is different, and the combination of each skin type and particular skin concern presents a unique set of characteristics.

Atmospheric skin aging is caused by a broad and growing range of environmental aggressors on skin, including UV, infrared radiation (IRA), and pollution.

A skin care formulation is only as good as its ingredients. Explore an alphabetical skin care ingredients dictionary featuring key ingredients, their source, and their benefits on skin.

Atmospheric skin aging refers to visible signs of skin aging caused by exposure to atmospheric aggressors. These aggressors include, but are not limited to UVA/UVB, infrared-A (IR-A), and ozone (O3) pollution.

FACING THE FACTS

Atmospheric aggressors surround us on a daily basis, posing a constant threat to healthy-looking skin, because they induce free radical formation that may damage cells.

THE EFFECTS ON SKIN

Superficially, this damage visibly manifests as premature lines, wrinkles, sagging, and unwanted discoloration.

We all need good antioxidant skin care products and organic is best!

What is vitamin C? Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is probably the best-known vitamin. It is most often associated with citrus fruit and is known for its ability to boost the immune system, increasing the body’s resistance to infections like cold and flu in winter. But what many people don’t know is that vitamin C is an antioxidant that performs a variety of roles in the body. It helps to promote healthy gum and teeth, aids in mineral absorption, and helps heal wounds.
What vitamin C does for you?
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that reacts with free radicals. Through this mechanism, the vitamin protects the body from the onslaught of cancer and other diseases of lifestyle. The vitamin plays an important role in the formation of connective tissue, cartilage, bone matrix, tooth dentin, skin and tendons – making it one of the cornerstones of the wound healing process. Vitamin C is best known for its mechanism of increasing the body’s resistance to infection. It also helps to keep the mucous membranes intact.
I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Vitamin C serum is a stable form of L-Ascorbic Acid. Since the amount of Vitamin C that penetrates into your skin is directly correlated with the acidity of the C, we have set ours appropriately low (2.5pH). You will find that our C Serum will deliver the maximum amount of vitamin into the skin with just a slight amount of irritation/tingling. Our serum will help to protect your skin from UVA & UVB rays damaging effects.
*Ultraviolet light exposure depletes up to two-thirds of your skin’s Vitamin C stores. These levels cannot be re-obtained by ingestion of Vitamin C! They can only be reached by a topical application. Topical Vitamin C provides more than twenty times the amount of Vitamin C found in normal skin, so extremely high percentages are quite wasteful and will not be absorbed and utilized.

More and more people are spending money on collagen, seeking out fillers or buying special creams in the hopes of minimizing wrinkles and achieving more supple skin.

But what’s actually the best way to make sure you’re getting all of the added collagen you want?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies, especially type 1 collagen. It’s found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive system and tendons. It’s what helps give our skin strength and elasticity, along with replacing dead skin cells. When it comes to our joints and tendons, in simplest terms, it’s the “glue” that helps hold the body together.

Our body’s collagen production naturally begins to slow down as we age. We can thank this degenerative process for signs of aging, such as wrinkles, sagging skin and joint pains due to weaker or decreased cartilage. Other lifestyle factors — like eating a diet high in sugar, smoking and high amounts of sun exposure — also contribute to depleting collagen levels. It’s been found that collagen-related diseases most commonly arise from a combination of either genetic defects, poor intake of collagen-rich foods, nutritional deficiencies and digestive problems affecting production (synthesis) of collagen.

Collagen Production as We Age

When we get older, the production of collagen begins to slow down. As a result, skin can become fragile and less elastic. In addition, hair starts losing its color, joints aren’t as flexible and bone may lose their density.  Supplementing with collagen may help you improve your body’s collagen levels.

You can get great boots with collagen-boosting creams that contain peptides to help restore elastin and collagen-like the

The benefits of peptides in this fabulous matte formulation cream are the stimulation of collagen 1, collagen 111, and elastin fibroblasts.

  • Type I collagen forms striated fibers between 80 and 160 nm in diameter in blood vessel walls, tendon, bone, skin and meat. It may be synthesized by fibroblasts, smooth muscle cells.
  • Type III collagen forms reticular fibers in tissues with some degree of elasticity, such as spleen, aorta and muscle. It is synthesized by fibroblasts and smooth muscle cells, contributes substantially to the endomysial connective tissues around individual muscle fibers, provides a small fraction of the collagen found in skin and occurs in the large collagen fibers dominated by Type I collagen. It may have some function in regulating collagen fiber growth.

With efficient moisturization via Hyaluronic acid, as well as non-comedogenic jojoba oil and half a dozen unique botanical actives, this fabulous peptide cream is absolutely fabulous.

“I love using the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics Magic exfoliating mask daily and the Bio Gorgeous peel twice a week”. Said Anis the I’m Fabulous Cosmetics founder.

 

The pores in your skin can get clogged with oil, dirt, debris, dead skin cells, and when skin is inflamed due to excess white blood cells. … Oily and acne-prone skin types produce more oil, which can lead to clogged pores, turning into blackheads, pimples, or even cysts due to inflammation.

A skin pore is an opening that allows oil produced by the sebaceous glands underneath the skin to emerge. The oil, called sebum, can act like a glue, binding with dead skin cells to block the opening. As the gland continues to produce oil, this can build up and eventually form a pimple. Watch this animation to see how pores can get clogged.

Clogged pores are a harmless but annoying cosmetic condition that is particularly common in adolescents. Although for decades the dermatological community has insisted that there was no link between diet and acne, recent research has indicated that the foods you eat can indeed give rise to clogged pores, which in turn gives rise to acne.

You may not love the scent of your coworker’s hand cream, or the perfume wafting across the aisle on the train. But for some people, fragrances like those can trigger a range of very real symptoms, according to a new Australian study, from migraines to difficulties with breathing.

Perfumes contain a mix of several ingredients that include a complex blend of natural essences as well as synthetic chemicals. The average perfume or cologne contains about 14 secret chemical ingredients that are capable of triggering mild to severe allergic reactions in fragrance-sensitive individuals.

Fragrance sensitivity can be defined as an irritation or an adverse reaction to chemicals in a perfume or other scented products such as air fresheners and cosmetics. Sensitivity to strong odors can make allergic people severely ill. People with asthma or other respiratory illness can be more susceptible to fragrance allergies compared to healthy individuals.

Some common symptoms of perfume allergy include the following:

  • mild to severe headache
  • skin irritation, itching, and rashes
  • sneezing, coughing and runny nose, also called allergic rhinitis
  • breathing difficulties, dizziness, and fatigue
  • muscle aches
  • watery, red, and itchy eyes
  • wheezing
  • inability to concentrate
  • swelling – or angioedema
  • nausea and vomiting
