Why is collagen good for my skin?
1) Helps you to maintain your youthful complexion
Collagen helps to tighten the dermis (the middle layer of your skin) which ensures that your skin stays elastic. The more elastic your skin is, the less likely it is to become loose and wrinkly. The reason our skin begins to sag and wrinkles start to appear is because of a lack of collagen in our body. From the age of 25 our bodies' collagen levels drop by 1% each year. Using skincare products containing collagen can help to counter this ageing process, by helping to boost skin elasticity and give you a plumper and more youthful look.
2) Helps to keep skin hydrated
Collagen can also help to improve how hydrated your skin is. When you age and your body produces less collagen, this can cause skin to become dry and dehydrated. As well as being uncomfortable and irritating, dry skin can cause long-term damage. If not treated, dry skin can damage the dermis (the middle layer of your skin), which is where collagen is produced. If this is damaged, your skin won’t be able to fight off the signs of ageing as effectively. Using collagen within your skincare routine can help to hydrate your skin, combating dry skin and the early signs of ageing.
