As you age, your skin loses elasticity. This is due to a decrease in your body’s production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Unfortunately, you begin to lose collagen in your early to mid 20s. Other factors that speed up the loss of collagen include smoking, high sugar foods, and sunlight. As your body produces less collagen, signs of aging occur such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of firmness.
The good news is that collagen is available for more than just plumping your lips. Collagen, a protein, adds strength and structure to your skin. Adding collagen or collagen-boosting products to your skincare regimen can help reduce wrinkles and lines.
Follow us as we explore ways to boost your body’s collagen.
The simplest way to boost your body’s collagen is to apply collagen to your skin’s surface. The best time to apply any product to your skin, including collagen, is after an enzyme peel or a microdermabrasion, as the skin is receptive to increased absorption.
There are also products to help boost collagen or prevent loss of collagen in your skin. Some of our favorites are Rhonda Allison’s C-Stem Cell, DermaMed’s Antiox-C Serum, and Revision’s Nectifirm. Head over to our products tab to find out how you can order these products or stop by and see us!
*While we do sell the above products at our spa, the company does not compensate us for promoting their products.
