Adjusting your skincare routine to increase skin firmness

In a world where skincare trends come and go it can become confusing as to which products/ingredients are best for increasing skin firmness. If you have gone down the path of wanting to increase skin firmness – you’d be familiar with peptides. But how familiar? Today let’s look at how peptides increase the skins firmness and how you can easily adjust your skincare routine to focus on increasing skin firmness.

Peptides are naturally occurring in the body and play crucial roles in skin repair and regeneration. In skincare, peptides are known for their ability to stimulate skin cells to produce more of its own collagen – to increase the skins firmness. Collagen production happens down in the deeper {dermis} layers of the skin, and when this process becomes stimulated we begin to notice an increase in our skins firmness.

We are born with our skins natural collagen supply and this supply begins to decline by the time we reach our early twenties – and it’s usually over the next decade or so that we begin to notice this visible decline in our skins collagen supply because we can see and feel a loss of firmness – and this is when we begin looking for products to add into our skincare routine.

So when do we start to add peptides into our skincare routine?

  1. Prevention: It’s never too early to start using peptides in your skincare routine. Incorporating peptide-rich products in your 20s or early 30s can help maintain youthful-looking skin and prevent premature signs of aging.
  2. Targeted Treatments: If you’re concerned about specific skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, or loss of firmness, then it’s a good time to begin looking for specific serums, masques & treatments made with peptides.
  3. Timing: It’s also never too later to start! Late is better than never and the good news is, if you’ve never used peptides and you begin now, you’re only going to see an improvement.
  4. Visible Signs: Is your skin showing any of the following signs?
    • Loss of firmness & sagging skin?
    • Lines & wrinkles more noticeable?
    • Dullness & dehydration?

Adding peptides into your existing skincare routine:

Product Composition

Collagen production happens on the deeper layers of the skin, which means you need to make sure the composition of the product you’re using can be absorbed down to these deeper layers. This basically means if you bought a ‘face crème’ made with peptides, they’d be sitting on the surface of your skin doing bugger all. This is because the composition of a face moisturiser is designed to only be absorbed by the top {epidermis} layers of the skin and these molecules too big to be absorbed down any further. For peptides to make their way down to those deeper layers, they must travel in the right product composition – which would be a serum, masque or treatment. Start with a serum – and then add in a face masque or treatment 3-4 weeks into your new skin firming routine.

Premium Quality

Choose premium quality. You can achieve maximum results without the use of harsh & nasty ingredients. Choose cruelty-free, paraben-free skincare products that are not tested on animals and are backed with a money back guarantee, just like nutrimetics. Choose your products based on facts rather than trends and do your research (if you’re here, you’re off to a great start).


Consistency is always key. Once you’ve selected your new serum/masque to add into your skincare routine it’s time to stay consistent. It can take up to 3-4 weeks to notice any visible changes from adding peptides into your routine, so give it some time.

Serum Layering

Peptides can be safely combined with other skincare ingredients such as antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and retinol. I usually recommend using Hyaluronic Acid before applying peptides to maximise results.


While peptides can help repair and rejuvenate the skin, it’s super important to follow with sun protection. Daily use of a high-quality SPF will help prevent sun damage and further collagen decline. Try Smart Shield SPF 50+ (paraben-free).


Support your new skincare-step by drinking lot’s of water, getting enough sleep and enjoying a balanced diet. You may also want to think about adding a collagen-boost supplement into your regime.

The Glow Goss

Peptides stimulate collagen production to increase firmness of the skin. If your skin is showing any of the signs, then it’s time for you to add some peptides into your skincare routine to increase your skins firmness. Remember to select the right product compositions when it comes to adding peptides into your routine – otherwise you could literally be throwing your money away. I’ve listed some recommendations that are suitable for all skin types, of course if your skin is prone to sensitivity then patch test first.
