Why We Love Collagen.

Why We Love Collagen:

Collagen is one of those things that as we get older it depletes. Yes it's sad I know. It's an ingredient that you can't just rely on in your skincare. You need to ingest it too. Combined you are definitely winning in the race against ageing.

After about age 25, your body starts to slow down its collagen production, although this function will never go away completely, as with elastin. This natural decrease in collagen leads to thin skin and wrinkles that continue to deepen with age. Things like your diet,smoking and UV rays all deplete collagen so you need to be mindful if you want to look youthful later in life.

Tips on how to protect your Collagen:

Some loss of collagen as you age is unavoidable, but you can slow the process and limit the amount of change your body exhibits. Protecting your body’s natural collagen is crucial for preventing the visible signs of skin aging. Here are some tips on how to protect your collagen.

1. Stay hydrated - our bodies need lots of water both inside and on our skin to function properly.

2. Avoid the sun as much as you can - too much sun on your body especially your face can cause early signs of aging. Rather use bronzer to warm up your complexion. Plus wear and SPF 50 and apply regularly.

3. Stop smoking - the toxins in cigarettes damage collagen and elastin, impair circulation, create hyperpigmentation, and more.
4. Protect against pollution - this causes damage to your collagen.Have you noticed brands are bringing out anti-pollution products. If you live in a city with lots of pollution make sure you protect your skin by washing daily, exfoliating, and wearing protective moisturizer and sunscreen.
5. Eat more antioxidants - Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, keeping them from stealing your collagen. Foods with antioxidants also often add extra hydration and vitamin C. Eat blueberries, cherries and dark leafy greens.
6. Healthy skin - make sure you are using ingredients like vitamin C and E that support the skin's health and protect your skin's barrier. Shop the Glo Bright Set.
