Did you know that about 75% of the weight of your skin is made of collagen?
Collagen is responsible for skin’s elasticity, making skin appear plump and smooth, and allowing it to bounce back after being stretched. Naturally, our bodies produce collagen-- but once we’re about twenty years old, collagen production decreases by 1% each year, leading to signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Other factors such as sun exposure and smoking decrease collagen production as well. We know-- learning that collagen production starts decreasing at just twenty years old sounds super concerning right?
Luckily, there’s lots of ways that you can give the collagen in your skin a boost! Products formulated specifically with collagen or collagen-boosting ingredients, such as peptides, can be very effective (try our Collagen Moisturizer or Advanced Cell Renewal). Try a serum or moisturizer that contains ingredients to stimulate the collagen production in your skin, leading to smoother, plumper skin, and decreased appearance of wrinkles and fine lines (try our Pro-Collagen Serum)!
Skin care containing collagen-boosting ingredients are also great for your body too: if cellulite or stretch marks are your concern, topical treatments can help reduce their appearance.
