Collagen is a huge buzzword in skincare. The plumpness in our skin that we take for granted in our youth is collagen at work. As we get older, our rounded complexion diminishes to hollowed cheeks and the main signs of ageing.
While collagen has heaps of other uses in the body, from the gut to our joints, its most celebrated role is in our skin. So when it decreases, is there any way we can stop it?
According to Dr Axe, as we age, collagen will be declining even as you read this! You’ll notice it physically: looser skin, more wrinkles and less elasticity. Increasing collagen levels can help your skin look firmer, increase smoothness, and help your skin cells keep renewing and repairing normally.
Double-blind, placebo-controlled studies investigating the anti-aging properties of collagen have found that 2.5–5 grams of collagen hydrolysate used among women aged 35–55 once daily for eight weeks significantly improved skin elasticity, skin moisture, transepidermal water loss (dryness) and skin roughness, all with little to no side effects. This makes collagen one of the best natural skin care ingredients available.
Collagen also reduces cellulite and stretch marks. When skin loses its elasticity as a result of decreased collagen, there’s another side effect: more visible cellulite. Because your skin is now thinner, cellulite becomes more evident — no more hiding what’s happening below the surface. Improving your skin’s elasticity through collagen helps reduce that dimpling on your skin.
