Collagen: The Key Behind Youthful & Plump Skin
Collagen is king when it comes to components of the skin that prevent aging. Collagen is naturally produced by the body throughout our lifetime, and it helps keep skin plump, supple, and firm. With age, production of this key component declines, and as a result, signs of aging occur. Effects of declining collagen production include fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. You can help your skin out by using products that help increase collagen production.
How does collagen work?
Collagen is an essential component of the body, including the skin. Its supportive nature makes it an essential component of several body parts, including muscles, tendons, bones, and (of course) skin. As the body ages, the amount of collagen produced declines. In addition, the existing collagen’s usual structure begins to deteriorate, providing less support. This leads to signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging.
How to up your collagen
There are supplements you can take that contain collagen. In addition to helping your skin, these are great for when you want to address several collagen-related concerns with hair, nails, joints, and more. There are also topical products that contain collagen. Using collagen peptides, these products deliver concentrated collagen straight to the areas on your face where you want it most. Finally, there are products that don’t contain collagen itself but rather the ingredients contained in collagen (such as vitamin C) which help stimulate the skin to produce its own collagen.

Collagen production in the skin begins to decline as early as in your twenties.
