Labor Day may have ended, but the sales have not. Mattresses, electric toothbrushes, and cocoon puffer jackets continue to be heavily discounted, and as if the post-Labor Day weekend deals couldn't get any better, we've spotted some discounts on skin care, too. And for a limited time, you can save 20 percent off on peptide products from Neutrogena's post-Labor Day Sale.

The brand's Rapid Firming collection, which is currently discounted, features a facial cream, eye cream, and serum. Each formula is made with micropeptides and collagen, a combination that can be particularly helpful for keeping skin supple as we age (just ask Kerry Washington and Jennifer Garner, both of whom use the products in their routines).

As we get older, our natural supply of collagen starts to degrade, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles. Using collagen-stimulating ingredients—like the micropeptides in Neutrogena's formulas—can help smooth away these lines. "Collagen is considered the 'youth fiber,' and it's the foundation of healthy skin," says board-certified dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, MD. "With the production of collagen, you'll find that skin appears tighter, pores appear smaller, and fine lines and wrinkles are improved."

It's worth noting that the collection's other star ingredient, collagen, doesn't do a whole lot in the wrinkle-reducing department (its molecules are too big to penetrate the skin, which is why derms recommend collagen-stimulating ingredients, instead—confusing, I know). What it does do, though, is leave the surface of your skin moisturized, helping to diminish the appearance of dehydration-induced "crinkles" and age-related dullness.

All in all, these formulas perform far better than their drugstore prices may imply—and right now, you can snag them for $32 a pop (instead of the usual $40). The sale only lasts two weeks, so you'll want to act fast. Shop the products below to start quenching your skin's thirst.
