Both proteins and peptides are made up of amino acids, but peptides contain far fewer amino acids than proteins. Like proteins, peptides are naturally present in foods.
The most popular peptides include collagen peptides for anti-aging and skin health. Peptides are short strings of amino acids, typically comprising 2–50 amino acids. Amino acids are also the building blocks of proteins, but proteins contain more. Collagen peptides, which benefit skin health and reverse the effects of aging.
Collagen is a protein in the skin, hair, and nails. Collagen peptides are broken down collagen proteins that the body can absorb more easily. Taking collagen peptides may improve skin health and slow the aging process. Peptides may stimulate the production of melanin, a skin pigment, which may improve the skin’s protection against sun damage.
Skin products that contain collagen peptides can treat skin wrinkles. Other research indicates that these supplements may also improve skin elasticity and hydration, reduce wrinkles, help skin firming, and increase blood flow and may facilitate faster-wound healing.

Retinoids are more potent, but over-the-counter retinoids penetrate the skin better. At least one study shows that prescription tretinoin is 20 times stronger than over-the-counter retinol, which in turn is another 20 times stronger than retinyl palmitate (Clinics in Dermatology, 2001). The best is to alternate a cream or serum with Retinol and cream or serum loaded with peptides.
