So what is collagen? Skin rejuvenating protein.
Collagen makes up 30% of the protein in the human body and is found in the skin, joints, teeth, bones, cartilage and blood vessels. Collagen is the most important building material of the skin, as it makes up 70% of the skin's protein and helps keep the skin smooth and beautiful.
After about 25 years, the body begins to lose its ability to produce new collagen, which leads to several signs of aging, such as skin wrinkles, lines and sagging skin. Collagen production stops completely around the age of 40.
The amount of collagen in the skin determines how young it looks. If the amount of collagen in the skin is high, it looks younger, brighter and firmer. If the amount of collagen in the skin is low, the skin looks uneven, dry and shows clear lines.
Collagen products repair damage caused by the sun
Exposure to the sun's UVA rays contributes to the damage of collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. Over time, the breakdown of these fibers manifests as sagging skin and the formation of wrinkles. In addition, the less collagen there is in the skin, the greater the risk that the skin burns.
Internally ingested collagen helps to build and regenerate skin stressed by the sun's UV rays. Collagen also effectively and quickly moisturizes sun-dried skin. By using products containing collagen, you also activate your body's own collagen production and the preservation of collagen stores.
