In the world of skincare, collagen is a buzz word that’s here to stay. While it’s a common ingredient in the daily skin products we use, many people are unsure of what it actually does. We’re here to set the record straight. In simple terms, collagen is a naturally occurring protein in the body that helps to make the skin firm, plump and strong. It is the ultimate anti-aging ingredient that rewinds the clock on our skin and gives you that glowing complexion.
WHAT IS COLLAGEN?
Collagen is a protein in the connective tissue of the skin, hair, joints, bones and muscles. It makes up nearly 80% of the skin and is found in the middle layer called the dermis. Collagen gives the skin structure and elasticity, which in turn gives a youthful appearance. With age (in our 20’s actually), collagen levels begin to decrease, often leaving us dependent on topical products, supplements and treatments to restore this healthy and youthful element back into our skin.
WHY IS COLLAGEN BENEFICIAL?
- Collagen is a powerhouse ingredient found in many skincare products and supplements. Effective anti-aging skin treatments, like the ones offered at Rewind Skin Co. work by stimulating collagen in the skin.
- Collagen works together with another protein called “elastin” to strengthen the skin and help it snap back into place after it’s been stretched over time.
- Collagen promotes healthy skin and hair and it’s hydrating properties help to prevent hair thinning, brittle nail beds and dry skin.
- Common skincare enemies like excessive sun exposure and cigarette smoke degrade collagen fibres in the skin and often result in the sagging texture and appearance we all want to avoid. Products and treatments that focus on producing collagen help to reverse these negative effects and in turn, have become increasingly popular among men and women.
