I have recently been seeing a lot of people talking about Collagen, from drinking it in the mornings, putting it in their smoothies, applying it to their skin, and all sorts of different things, which is why I decided to do some more research on what it is and why it is seemingly so good for you.
I looked up collagen on google (as one does) to find out what the hype is all about. Little did I know, I must be the only person that has not caught onto the Collagen bandwagon because there seems to be a large variety of collagen products on the market.
The collagen comes in many forms, as previously mentioned, such as powder collagens, skincare collagens and liquid collagens, however surely they cannot all be the same, right? So I did some further research as to what I would specifically use collagen for in my everyday life and figured out the points below were the most prominent reasons I would use a collagen product:
- Plump my skin by boosting the elasticity
- Increase the hydration of my skin, especially during the winter months
- Prevent ageing and premature wrinkles
After looking at different products I came across one that stood out for me called ‘Collagen Lift – Red Carpet’ of which definitely seems to be the one that fulfils my skin’s needs.
What Is Collagen?
Collagen is a protein that is the single most abundant structural component in the body. It provides the matrix that sustains the body’s form. More specifically it provides firmness, elasticity and structure to the skin. As we age collagen production slows down. This leads to a loss of plumpness in the skin and an increase in wrinkles.
Verisol® Collagen is easily absorbed by the digestive system and made readily available to the skin, Collagen Lift, therefore, makes it possible to increase total body collagen and reverse the signs of ageing in the skin.
What Is Collagen Lift
Collagen Lift Paris RED CARPET is a powerful combination of drinkable collagen, Hyaluronic Acid, Mediterranean seaweed and vitamin C, proven to reduce wrinkles by up to 50%.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic Acid is a gel-like molecule that is the space filler and cushioning agent in your skin. It can hold over 1,000 times its weight in water in your skin cells. Thus making it an excellent moisturizer and resulting in decreased wrinkles and increased smoothness. Scientific studies have shown that Hyaluronic Acid improves skin hydration, stimulates collagen production in the skin and maintains skin elasticity.
Loss Of Hyaluronic Acid With Age
Decreasing levels of Hyaluronic Acid are known to accompany the ageing process. It is estimated that by the time we reach our mid-40’s, we only produce about half that is required by the body.
Supplementation Of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic Acid is beneficial as an oral supplement because it retains skin moisture and keeps collagen synthesis up, contributing to the anti-ageing benefits to the skin. Higher levels of Hyaluronic Acid and collagen means skin that is more supple and resistant to wrinkles and fine lines.
