Shop Kbeauty with Peptides
Peptides are naturally recurring short chain amino acids that are the building blocks for proteins in our body. They have a direct effect on our skin. As we age, our own natural peptides begin to break down. Applying peptides topically through skincare can help with some anti aging concerns like the appearance of fine lines, lack of firmness, dehydration and uneven skin tone.
