Ingredient Break Down: Collagen

January 6, 2020



Collagen is one of the building blocks for our bodies. It’s a protein that provides strength and structure found in our bones, skin, muscle and tendons. To provide more perspective, protein makes up around 20% of the body’s mass. Collagen makes up around 30% of the protein in the human body.

Loss Of Collagen 

We lose roughly one percent of our collagen every year starting at age 20. The more collagen we lose, the more fine lines and wrinkles will appear. What else causes loss of collagen? Smoking, high sugar foods and exposure to sunlight can all cause collagen levels to deplete. Ultimately, speeding up signs of ageing. Using products with collagen can help build it back up. By using these products, you help your body stimulate the synthesis of new collagen production. Minimizing the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles. Our Collagen Facial Hydrating Gel encourages the renewal of cells by eliminating old, damaged collagen from the surface of the skin. The result is firmer, plumper, and more youthful looking skin.

Botox OR Collagen

Both are responsible for keeping fine lines, wrinkles, and “crow’s feet” in check. While Botox freezes muscle activity, collagen is something already produced in the skin. The latter is seen as less invasive treatment and more natural. If you’re thinking about getting Botox injections, do your research on alternatives like collagen first.

Other Ways To Improve

A diet that encourages collagen production can be extremely helpful in your anti-aging quest. A diet rich in natural anti-ageing ingredients would include food like, mangoes, a great source of Vitamin C, and carrots, which contain beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant that helps cell damage. We also encourage you to uses ingredients in your skin care routine that stimulate your skin’s own collagen production. For best results, cut out all the bad foods from your diet, wear SPF daily, and eat your superfoods!
