That's right, the metal most closely associated with pennies can actually help you look younger. Copper has actually been used in beauty regimes for centuries — all the way back to ancient Egypt — and was considered a symbol for eternal youth back in the day.
These days, you can find copper in many of your favorite anti-aging skin care products, sometimes even in makeup. From day creams to hydrating serums, more and more brands are incorporating the ingredient because it actually works, aiding in the production of collagen, which helps keep skin looking younger.
Ready to give this magical ingredient a try? Read on for some of the best copper skin care products to add to your beauty regime.
This cream uses both copper peptides and moisturizing ingredients like jojoba oil to make sure your skin looks plump and healthy. It also contains ceramides and bioflavonoids that actually increase your skin's ability to retain moisture.
As we age, the proteins in our skin naturally decrease, but copper peptides can help, which is why we love this serum so much. Apply it daily before your moisturizer, and you'll see reduced fine lines and wrinkles, a more plump complexion and overall rejuvenated skin after continued use.
What makes this serum so different is the potency of ingredients. Inside, you'll find 1 percent pure copper tripeptide-1, which normally depletes with age, that will help boost skin functions like creating collagen. You'll feel like a fancy, great-skinned chemist as you mix this serum with the activator before use.
