Around age 35, our body’s natural ability to produce collagen begins to dwindle. Collagen is a tough, rubbery protein that gives our skin structure. Without as much collagen, our skin thins and wrinkles. A good amount of collagen is essential to younger-looking skin. Sun, smoke and pollution are other contributing factors in the loss of collagen. The intake of certain foods (fish, white tea, berries, soy and dark green, orange, red and water-rich vegetables) boosts collagen. A combination of collagen and elastin keeps skin firm and flexible.
Some benefits of collagen include:
Fewer stretch Marks
Topical skincare products such as the DDF Anti Aging Wrinkle Resist Pore Minimizer or Kinerase C8 Peptide Intensive Treatment can help maintain the skin’s strength and volume. Collagen skincare products can accelerate the healing of wounds as well as repair damaged collagen. Topical skincare collagen creams normally take about three to four weeks to show visible results; however, you must continue to use the skincare collagen cream to maintain the effects.
