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, we begin to lose collagen at 26 years of age. 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 products to your skincare regimen can help reduce wrinkles and lines.
Follow us as we explore ways to boost your body’s collagen.
Collagen in Your Diet
Collagen can be ingested. There are many supplements that can be taken to incorporate collagen into your daily vitamin regimen.
You can also take supplements that promote collagen production in your body. These include green tea, vitamin C, and functional keratin. Creams that contain these ingredients also help stimulate collagen production when applied to your skin. A diet rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene can also aid in collagen production.
Be sure to stop by the spa to purchase one of our favorite products, Yana by Image Skincare. Yana is a drinkable collagen that helps support collagen production.
