Topical Collagen: 4-2-22 Tip of the Day
Updated: Apr 3
If you’re in your 30’s or above, your collagen ain’t what it used to be.
Collagen is a protein that helps our skin in the areas of elasticity and hydration. It’s found in skin, connective tissue including tendons, ligaments, skin, and muscles. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to dry skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Collagen helps to keep us looking young. How do we replenish the collagen?
Collagen peptides or supplements containing collagen are the best bet. They may help slow the aging of your skin by reducing wrinkles and dryness. Vitamin C is crucial in the process. You can always add foods that help produce collagen to your diet (bone broth, fish, citrus and tropical fruits, broccoli)…
Applying Vitamin C topically also helps the body naturally produce collagen. Applying collagen topically isn’t beneficial in the anti-aging process, according to researchers, because the molecules in collagen are too big to penetrate the skin barrier. Add Vitamin C serum to your skincare arsenal, and say hello to collagen peptides & supplements if you want to be intentional about collagen boosting.
Wishing you all the collagen, beauties!
