Collagen, often referred to as our body’s ‘scaffolding’ that holds our body together and provides its structure. It is the most abundant protein in our bodies as it can be found in most parts of our body, includingbones, skin, muscles, blood vessels, and ligaments. Collagen plays a major role in our skin as it provides elasticity, which helps the skin look smooth and healthy.
As collagen makes up over 70% of our skin’s dry weight, it is vital for keeping our skin look young, healthy, and bouncy. However, as we get older, the production of collagen in our body naturally depletes, makingit more likely for us to notice wrinkles, and sagging of our skin.
As we are all subject to age, none of us can avoid this so we need to exert extra effort to address collagen loss in our skin topically by using products such as Collagen Serums.
How do Collagen Serums work?
If your goal is to stimulate the production of collagen by using topical products, collagen serum is the best to use. This is because, compared to creams or lotions, serumscontain higher concentrated amounts of active ingredients that penetrate the skin’s surface faster.
But, on a quick note, the truth is that using collagen serums or any topical anti-aging products that contain collagen do not replace the lost collagen, since the active molecules in Collagen Serums are too large to penetrate deep into the dermis layer.
However, with the right formulation of active ingredients, collagen serums can boost the production of the protein, and make the skin firmer and smoother by filling in fine line gaps and retaining skin moisture.
How to determine the Best Collagen Serum to use for your skin?
Determining the best collagen serum for the skin takes only one step and that is, looking at its label! To maximize the benefits of this Anti-Aging Serum, the following active ingredients should be present:
Aside from natural collagen depletion that results from aging, being exposed to environmental aggressors such as sun’s UV rays and pollution forms free-radicals that break down collagen resulting in more depletion of the protein. This is why having an antioxidant in collagen serums enhances the collagen anti-aging benefits by givingyour skin protection as it neutralizes free radicals coming from harmful environmental aggressors. Antioxidant such as Vitamin C also Inhibits the production of melanin, making your skin brighter, even-toned, clear, and glowing.
Retinol provides faster cellular turnover with pure retinoids that act as a topical Vitamin A which is crucial for skin health and nourishment.Wrinkles and fine lines are common symptoms of aging. Retinol can provide an immense anti-aging contribution by protecting collagen stores and enhancing its production, responsible for lifting lines, making the skin firm and in shape.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally present in our body and the larger amount of it is found in the skin where it binds with water to keep skin hydrated and plump. However, just like collagen and elastin, the amount of naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our bodies decreases as we go through the natural aging process and be exposed to free radicals from environmental aggressors.
When this ingredient is added to a collagen serum, it helps fortify the skin’s natural barriers to help lock moisture in and continues to draw moisture in your skin from the surrounding environment, providing long-lasting hydration in your skin.
