Elastin is the connective tissue of the skin. As the name suggests elastin allows the skin to stretch and recoil. Skin, most elastin in the dermis, the elastic intermediate layer. The building block of elastin is a protein called tropelastin and only one tropelastin gene in humans (compared to collagen gene portions). Tropelastin is fine and can be stretched eight times its molecular length before retreating again.
elastin production begins to decline when we are still young and middle-aged hardly produce any at all and trust what was generated in the first years of life.
The good news is that it is one of the most durable protein in the body and has a half-life enviable point of about 74. The problem is that any damage – the UVB light, for example – is inefficient and so repaired the skin gradually loses its elasticity long before we arrived at 70 years ( source ).
There are many ways that collagen production can be increased, but less is known about how to boost elastin. Tretinoin is used for many years, but interesting retinol in studies has been found to have no effect. Given the controversies surrounding Tretinoin use, this is disappointing. So I’ve been researching ways we can increase our elastin and this is what I’ve come up with:
This is a good place to start because the elastin is mostly made of glycine, valine, alanine and proline amino acids. To search sera important amino acids such as:
SkinOwl Eyes + ($ 46 in store), a very good eye cream that is full of not less than 13 amino acids.
Deciem Youth Chemical Complex intense hand ($ 20 in store) has proline, alanine and serine.
BRAD essential Biophotonic Multi-Peptide Youth Elixir Regenerating Serum ($ 95 at the store) with bio-fermented amino acids.
Sciote Peptide Serum + Youth Defense ($ 110 in store) has all the amino acids that may be desired in their “peptide complex mixture”.
Organic Glow Ultra Nourishing anti-aging Elixir ($ 40.50 in the store) punches above its price point with amino acids and other good ingredients such as MSM.
The genus name soya glycine is actually one of the amino acids found in elastin. Research demonstrated that topical soy extracts boosted elastin fibers. It’s frustrating, there is a lot of good products with soy extract, but we do have:
E’shee Repair Night Cream cell ($ 289 in store) with oil soybeans as well as the amino acid proline.
Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Hydrating moisture without oil shock ($ 58 in store) has hydrolyzed soy protein.
Medik8 Pretox Eyelift ($ 70 at the store) has a strong dose of soy protein.
The enzyme elastase attacks the structural proteins, for example, elastin, and so inhibit ingredients which are a good thing. There is a peptide, known as TT2, which does just that, and as a result reduces sagging and loose. You can find it in E’shee Aesthetic Clinic Alpha and Omega Gene Therapy Eye Cream ($ 284 in the store).
One study identified the botanical extracts more able to fight elastase and white and pink tea he went up. White tea is tea made from new growth buds and young leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. It is a staple product SimySkin such as:
SimySkin Nourishing Eye Cream ($ 45 in store) has white tea and green tea, as well as some collagen-boosting peptides.
SimySkin Hydrating Moisturiser and nourishing ($ 45 in store) main in white tea companies and has some good antioxidants such as alpha-lipoic acid.
Rose is located in Eye Cream Rose Hydrosol of La Vie Celeste ($ in store) and Age Defying Rose hyaluronic Tonique of Sevani ($ 39 in store)
tetrapeptide-17 is known Tego Pep 4-17. With the exception of a study conducted by the manufacturer showed an improvement in skin elasticity, there is not much information available. However, it has been used by your best side, for example, in his new serum overnight.
Restore also Uplevity (tetrapeptide-2), also it supposed to increase elastin.
Your Best Face Restore Night Treatment Serum ($ 145 in store)
Copper it is the key mineral lysyl oxidase, an enzyme that interlaces collagen and elastin. Clinical studies have found that copper peptides remove damaged collagen and elastin skin tissue and scar because they activate the skin system responsible for those functions. It also promotes the production of glycosaminoglycans .
Benir beauty BV-9 Platinum Provectus Super Serum ($ 195 in store) uses a unique formulation of 7 different peptides, including copper.
Copper peptides, in addition to Matrixyl 3000 and niacinamide are combined to great effect in Medik8 Firewall ($ 145 in store)
light red LED
red LED light is one of the best things for restoring elastin, and some Germans to shed light on how it works researchers. LED light changes the molecular structure of a rubber-like water layer elastin, the protein that provides elasticity in skin, blood vessels, heart and other body structures. Light strips away those water molecules that are involved in the immobilization of elastin, gradually restoring its elastic function and thus reducing facial wrinkles. The red LED is offered, along with ultrasound, in Lux Renew Vitality Truth ($ 279 at the store).
A word about vitamin C
There have been concerns expressed about vitamin C with elastin and thus, paradoxically, good for collagen production but bad for elastin. It turns out that is not good that the concern is based on a study that noted that when the skin is exposed to sunlight and sun damage, which is in full swing elastin production. In the study, vitamin regulates back to normal. ( source )
