Collagen - 7 steps to boost your skin cells!

Posted by

Yes, that smooth perfect skin, not touched by any wrinkle, fast and firm. Who wouldn't like it?

We hear this word 'collagen' everywhere around lately: how important it is, how to improve it, how to maintain it. The question are: Why is it so? Why collagen is so important? Will our skin appreciate it?

Let’s start with: what is it exactly?

Collagen is a protein produced by our cells in the body, that reduces typical aging signs like wrinkles, fine lines and keeps our skin smooth and firm. Magic, right? And our own body can make it? Perfect! But wait a minute, unfortunately it is not that simple... As we age the production of collagen drops. After 25 it decreases really fast and even though we won't see the result immediately, by the age of 35 we are definitely going to notice significant change with the elasticity and firmness of our skin. Bad habits, unhealthy lifestyle won’t help our skin and even more will slow down the collagen production. So can we do anything with that? Luckily, there are some ways that we can encourage our cells to produce more of collagen and maintain the one we still have.

1. Good, old vitamin C! 

That’s right, vitamin C is a great antioxidant, without it the collagen could not be produced. Adding vitamin C in your diet and using vitamin C skin care products can definitely boost the collagen in your skin, and that’s what we want.

2. Retinol

Retinol has been proven to stimulate collagen production, and it also prevents the substances that break down the collagen, mainly caused by the sun exposure.

3. Sun protection

Nothing new? Yes, but reducing sun exposure really gives the best effect. The sun gets deep into our skin cells and damages them really badly. Thus collagen production is getting slower and slower. Let’s remember to put sun cream throughout the whole year, not only during the summer time. Many products nowadays contain SPF as additional component. During less sunny seasons good option is to start using BB creams, that not only protect from UV rays but also moisturize your skin and improve healing.

4. Exfoliate

Removing the dead layer of your skin can be really beneficial. Skin starts to renew itself and what does that mean? Yes, the collagen production boosts. While picking the exfoliate product it is important that it won’t be too strong and invading for your skin. We definitely don’t want to make it worse. Think about cleansers containing AHA/BHA exfoliants. They are perfect with fighting with the sun damage and acne.
