Anti-Aging: Why Collagen is Vital for maintaining healthy, youthful skin.
First let me explain what Collagen is and why Collagen production is key to anti-aging and keeping your skin looking young, plump and wrinkle free.
Collagen is a protein produced by our cells that helps “hold” the skin together, keeping it younger looking and giving it firmness and elasticity.
When we are younger skin is constantly regenerating itself providing you with plump and smooth skin. As we age, collagen production slows down and existing collagen gets damaged from sun exposure and bad skin habits. The results are wrinkles and sagging skin.
Luckily, there is a lot you can do to preserve your collagen and boost its production starting with the following top three essentials.
1. VITAMIN C
Vitamin C is crucial to the formation of collagen. Start using a Vitamin C serum daily in your morning routine. Our Collagen Rejuvenation Serum is an Antioxidant cream that is lightweight, silky and fast absorbing. It is specially formulated to give you smoother more radiant looking skin by stimulating your collagen growth and building a stronger tissue structure, while delivering vitamin C for optimum results. VITAMIN C is the KEY to maintaining healthy, youthful skin. It's a powerful antioxidant that slows the rate of free-radical damage which causes skins dryness, fine lines and wrinkles. It helps combat and reverse the effects of aging on your skin by producing collagen. Applying VITAMIN C to the skin topically is up to 20 TIMES MORE EFFECTIVE than taking it orally.
2. SUN PROTECTION
The sun damages Collagen! Always protect your skin from the sun. Our Antioxidant Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 50 is an advanced antioxidant sunscreen that is specially formulated with Micronized Zinc Oxide and other sunscreen ingredients to provide the highest level of broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Recommended as your daily-use facial moisturizer it has a natural tint and includes 6 Antioxidants; Silymarin, Bisabolol, Ectoin, Activated Vitamin E, Green Tea Polyphenols and Caffeine. PLUS is works as an excellent makeup primer!
Microdermabrasion is a non-chemical, non-invasive procedure which removes the outermost layer of dry, dead skin cells and reveals younger, healthier looking skin. Microdermabrasion encourages the production of a new underlying layer of skin cells with higher levels of Collagen and Elastin which further improves your skin’s appearance. This is a great treatment for skin discolorations, fine lines, wrinkles and clogged pores. Excellent for stimulating Collagen. Recommended treatments every 2-4 weeks.
