​Give your face a natural lift with collagen supplements

Posted by


Collagen has become somewhat of a buzzword in the skincare industry in recent years. You’ve probably heard about it due to its popularity amongst celebrities, who are forever looking for the secret to eternal youth. (Aren’t we all?) But what is collagen exactly? And how can it help us look and feel better?

How collagen gives us that youthful look

Collagen is a natural protein produced in the body, and it’s what gives the models in glossy magazines their impossibly luscious shiny hair, peachy skin and unbreakable nails.

When we’re young, our skin stays plump and smooth because it constantly regenerates itself. But from around the age of 25, collagen levels start diminishing and by the time we hit 40, we’ve lost a third of our collagen. Collagen production is also greatly affected by environmental stresses such as sun exposure, nutrition, skin damage, and exposure to toxins such as cigarette smoke. The result? All those things we look at obsessively in the mirror: wrinkles, sagging skin, and frown lines. But don’t worry – help is at hand.

Holding back the years

There's a bewildering array of collagen treatments and products on the market, from injections, to soaps and potions. So what’s the best way to keep your skin youthful and wrinkle-free?There’s a lot you can do to preserve your collagen and boost its production naturally, such as exfoliating, taking care of your skin in the sun, and adding antioxidants to your skincare regime. But if you want a little extra boost to help keep the signs of ageing at bay, dietary supplements can work wonders.

Take advantage of an advanced collagen complex

Something like our Advanced Collagen Complex could be just what you need to turn back the clock. (Or at least slow it down.) It’s a bespoke formula that contains hydrolysed collagen, hyaluronic acid, plus Vitamins C and E. Vitamin C is important as it contributes to collagen formation for the normal function of blood vessels, while Vitamin E is an antioxidant that helps protect cells from oxidative stress (which is thought to contribute to the onset of serious illnesses such as cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's).

When taken over a period of time, an Advanced Collagen Complex can help slow down the dreaded ageing process and keep your skin, hair and nails supple and super healthy.
