What is Collagen and Why Does it Matter? 咩係膠原蛋白?點解對皮膚咁重要?
Collagen is something that is talked about a lot in the skin care industry, but what does it do and why does it matter for your skin?
In regards to anti-aging and your skin, collagen is the protein that keeps your skin elastic. When your skin loses collagen, it can lead to sagging, wrinkles, dehydration and loss of firmness. This is something that happens naturally as you age. In fact, you start losing 1% collagen each year from age 21! 21 not 51!! On top of that, environmental factors like pollution and UV can further deplete your skin’s collagen content.
So you’re probably thinking, “Okay so I can just use a cream with collagen in it and I am good, right?” Sorry...collagen molecules are actually too big to penetrate the skin. But the good news is that there are plenty of ingredients that can help to boost the skin’s production of collagen. Vitamin C and white lupin extract are 2 wonderful ingredients that work to increase collagen production!
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and it’s also critical for collagen synthesis in skin. Vitamin C has been shown to stabilize collagen production and increase collagen protein synthesis to help repair damaged skin. This is evident in the reversal effect that vitamin C has on photo damage and hyperpigmentation of skin. Our Anti-Aging Beauty Oil has plenty of vitamin C plus a luxurious blend of oils for a nourishing collagen boost!
White Lupin Extract
White lupin seed extract helps to inhibit the process of MMPs and helps minimize the breakdown of collagen and elastin. It also helps to renew the outer layer of skin as well as reduce the appearance and depth of fine lines and wrinkles to give you youthful looking skin! Our new Radiance and Firming Concentrate has white lupin seed extract to help firm your skin and increase collagen production.
And don’t forget! You should protect your skin from environmental factors that can deplete collagen by always wearing sunscreen!
