The addition of Peptides helps to stimulate and strengthen skin to visibly combat sagging, delivering deliver multi-level repair and rejuvenation. It quickly targets fine lines, deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores and rough texture for youthful-looking skin. Vitamin C is essential for skin's collagen production and is known for its ability to brighten skin and help fade dark spots.
